Line weight are “kinda messy”.

Do you know how to improve line weight. I usually draw lines over the existing ones, but sometimes the lines' trajectory gone wrong.

Hi!

A good training is to practice superimposed lines, ghosting every line before committing it to the existing one(s).

I usually do this during my warm up with the Ellipses in Planes, because it gives me a mix of curved and straight lines.

It takes a ton of practice to develop a consistent accuracy though.

Superimposed Lines and Ellipses in Planes are Lesson 1 exercises. You can definitely practice these during your warm ups while tackling the Challenge.

Good luck with those boxes.

I think there are two ways you can accomplish thicker lines for better line weight. One is with the method you talk about, trace over the lines. If you struggle with this method, a good practice can be tracing the same lines over and over again, while trying to be as precise as possible. The second method would be pressing down harder on your pencil/using thicker pens. I do slightly discourage using multiple markers as they might not be available all the time, but whatever suits you, you should try!

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Despite their age, Marshall Vandruff's videos on Linear Perspective are some of the best lectures on all the ins and outs of perspective, and as an instructor, he is highly respected across the board. He goes into a lot of the intricacies that I don't touch on in much depth (at least, not if I can help it).

On top of being some of the best, his lectures are also among the most accessible, at the full 8 hour set for $12.00. There's literally no reason not to grab them.
