I didn't see the requirement changes until after I had completed the 250 box challenge about a week ago.

Hi there, I'll be handling your box challenge critique.

The challenge was recently updated but as the disclaimer at the beginning mentions, we expect older versions to be submitted for some time. It's fine that you didn't follow the new requirements as you started before it was updated. I would encourage you to read/watch through the updated challenge however as it may help clarify/reinforce your understanding of the concepts throughout the challenge.

All of that being said, your submission currently just links to a single page. Reply to this comment with a link to the rest of your pages and I'll handle your critique as soon as I can.

I look forward to seeing your work.

Next Steps:

Submit the rest of your boxes please.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

I am so sorry only one page came through.

I have all 40 pages entered into imgur but now I see that each page has its own "copy link" button. I don't see how to send all pages as 1 link. Do i need to send each page link individually?

Can I send the link(s) directly back to you or do I go to the bottom of the queue again?

Thank you

Copy the link from your browser's address bar. It'll probably follow the format imgur.com/a/ABCDEFGH. This is also demonstrated in the video on Lesson 0 Page 3, in the section where it discusses uploading your images to Imgur.

When you've got the appropriate link, be sure to respond to Tofu's original message (as opposed to this one) so he gets notified.

No need to apologize, people make mistakes and they learn. Just a matter of getting it figured out.

This link works, but that being said it seems like a bunch of the pages are missing. Seems there's 19 pages, most with 6 boxes each. So roughly half of your boxes are unaccounted for.

I'd recommend trying to upload them again, or uploading the missing pages into another album and submitting the second link, or maybe look into google photos/drive if you find it easier/preferred.

Next Steps:

Submit the rest of your boxes please.

After 26 it says to click the box for the remaining 26 pages. I hope I got it right this time.

Let's be real here for a second: fineliners can get pricey. It varies from brand to brand, store to store, and country to country, but good fineliners like the Staedtler Pigment Liner (my personal brand favourite) can cost an arm and a leg. I remember finding them being sold individually at a Michael's for $4-$5 each. That's highway robbery right there.

Now, we're not a big company ourselves or anything, but we have been in a position to periodically import large batches of pens that we've sourced ourselves - using the wholesale route to keep costs down, and then to split the savings between getting pens to you for cheaper, and setting some aside to one day produce our own.

These pens are each hand-tested (on a little card we include in the package) to avoid sending out any duds (another problem with pens sold in stores). We also checked out a handful of different options before settling on this supplier - mainly looking for pens that were as close to the Staedtler Pigment Liner. If I'm being honest, I think these might even perform a little better, at least for our use case in this course.

We've also tested their longevity. We've found that if we're reasonably gentle with them, we can get through all of Lesson 1, and halfway through the box challenge. We actually had ScyllaStew test them while recording realtime videos of her working through the lesson work, which you can check out here, along with a variety of reviews of other brands.

Now, I will say this - we're only really in a position to make this an attractive offer for those in the continental United States (where we can offer shipping for free). We do ship internationally, but between the shipping prices and shipping times, it's probably not the best offer you can find - though this may depend. We also straight up can't ship to the UK, thanks to some fairly new restrictions they've put into place relating to their Brexit transition. I know that's a bummer - I'm Canadian myself - but hopefully one day we can expand things more meaningfully to the rest of the world.
