community critique

3:14 PM, Thursday May 18th 2023

It's been ten days since I posted my 250 box challenge assignment. I know that it isn't guaranteed to get a critique by the community and that it can take weeks/months. My question is, should I move onto lesson 2 or keep waiting for a critique? I have been drawing, just haven't moved forward with lesson 2.

Hi Melos,

If you want to guarantee critiques, you can check out the unofficial critique exchange program introduced here. https://drawabox.com/lesson/0/3/gettingfeedback

Join our Discord server and read the pinned message in the channel there to see how it works. :)

I actually am a part of the server but somehow never noticed that channel?? Anyhow, I already found it, thanks for sending me there!

Same. I thought the entire discord server was the exchange program and I wasn't aware of the actual program until I'm further into the course

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
