Lines look very confident. Make sure when drawinf elipses you go trough them at 2 times.But in these early stages I'd recomend go over the elipses at least 3 times just build the mussle memory. Make sure to ghost the elipses first then go over them 2 or more times but don't over do it. Remember the horizontal lines of the boxes are paralell to the horizon and the vertical lines are perpendicular to the horizon line. Rotated boxes look slick. I'm very jealous of them by the way.

So, I'd highly recomend 250 boxes challenge and make sure to do your daily warmups exercises.

Your lines throughout these exercises are looking great! Rather consistently confident and accurate. There is occassional wobble and hesitation that I noticed when you were in rough perspective, but it happens, we're not aiming for perfection, it's just something to keep in mind! Always thinking about confidence and follow through. Hope you get your fineliner in, and if you can have some extras for backup! you'll be going through them I have no doubt.

Just as Farhanthenerd suggests I recommend moving on to 250 boxes Challenge! Good luck on your progress.

Next Steps:

Move forward to 250 box challenge

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.
