You seem to be understanding that you're supposed to be filling in cast shadows, but I think you're being too selective with how dark your cast shadows need to be for you to fill them in.

To clarify, none of the cast shadows on the paper seem to be describable with a single black line, yet there are several instances on your paper in which you do that. It seems as though you're describing the start or stop edges of the shadow, but you need to actually fill in the shadow form, which you do with a couple of your fully black shapes.

Try to really think about what is casting the shadow, and then describe that thing that's casting the shadow by outlining the shadow and then filling it in.

It's ok if you don't fully understand it, I certainly didn't when I first did the texture analysis.

It's fine, I'm sure it will be better explained when I turn this in and probably will not fully get it as this is far too advanced atm and really should be covered later imo.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
