With your superimposed lines, it looks like you need to be more careful when you start, make sure to start at the beginning point and stay neat. With your organic perspective pages, there isn't a good sense of any boxes being very close to the viewer, none of them are very big, keep in mind pushing that perspective, as well as the perspectives of the individual boxes, they aren't really proper at all, but the point of this exercise is to toss you in un-prepared anyway. Everything looks good, I wish you luck and hope you continue to do well in your draw a box journey!

Next Steps:

Go ahead and move on to the 250 box challenge.

It seems that you mistakenly used a ruler for your boxes in your 2 pages of Rough Perspective - boxes in that exercise are supposed to be made using the ghosting method and only the horizon line and error checking should be done with a ruler.

Nevertheless I believe that you tackled this lesson pretty well, and that exercise was not that crucial as the 250 box challenge (remember: no ruler there!), so I'll just agree with the current review and that will mark your lesson as complete.

Good luck!

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
