Looking at your post, everything Skeik said is true, you lack the patience, but this happens because you frustrate yourself by not focusing on one thing at a time - ghosting your lines, trying to do them bigger, try to stop before every line instead of assuming you can just draw from your head. The general direction of our boxes is good.
I started drawabox about 4-5 years ago with no prior experience. I reached lesson 5 and quit. I restarted the lessons this year (albeit from #3, since I already had he 250+ box challenge and the cylinder challenge under my belt and didn't want to get bored) and now I'm about to start the final lesson and I'm halfway though the chest challenge.
I realized why I quit 4 years ago, I was frustrated. I did the exercises by pen and I erased a lot, this didn't help me to improve much. I din't draw simple forms for any of the insects/animals to build upon, I basically just drew directly what I saw. It actually looked okay but it was too much and too far from the core of the lessons.
This year I started with an ink pen, so I forced myself to face the fear of permanent lines, and try to adapt if they come out wrong. I did all the challenges plus the examples Uncomfortable did, because I realized I couldn't cheat myself if I wanted to learn. I read each lesson at least twice and watched the available videos, to make sure I get all the info, and I tried to do exactly what it was being said, no more skipping.
A few months of doing this means that I now have more confidence, because I'm not that scared of failing anymore, and less frustrated. I reckon this process will go on for a long time, because if I don't draw anything for a couple of days that frustration starts creeping back in, but now I have the tools to fight it.
Right now I am confident enough that I started a course on udemy that covers all the basics, not just perspective and the stuff we do here. So far I did almost no shading on my drawings for example, while other students did, so I want to have some more variety before I return and finish drawabox. One thing's for sure, I can definitely feel the benefits of sticking with drawabox, I surprised myself with what I can do because of all that practice.

Totally! I took "The Ultimate Drawing Course - Beginner to Advanced" with Jaysen Batchelor on Udemy.

Getting to the level of the pic you linked will take years if not decades of dedicated practice. My main recommendation is just to start drawing stuff--trees, your hand, pictures of people, objects around te house--but since you say you need some structure, check out Udemy's drawing course or one of what I'm sure are dozens of other online classes.
I'm aso fairly sure that the Jagnic image you linked is a digital painting, so maybe invest in a drawing tablet or e-pen as well.
I can't say I identify with your hobby burnout, but I'm probably happier in isolation than the vast majority of people. As a single guy, having this much free time is pretty fantastic for me--I've been reading, running/working out, playing D&D, and watching movies more than at any other time in my life. I also picked up guitar as a quarantine hobby. I'm not very good, but I find making music to be extremely rewarding even if it still sounds pretty amateurish. It's also a combined mental/physical exercise in a way that I'm not at all used to, which is a nice challenge. I feel that drawing falls in the same umbrella of "activities that engage your hands and your brain," so it might have a similarly therapeutic effect for you.
Congrats on the masters program! I was set to start mine this month, but deferred a semester. Will be starting in January. I'm not looking forward to what will certainly be at least mostly online courses, but I'll get through it & hopefully have a more traditional grad school experience for part of the program.

they had an intro offer for $16 rather than $110, so I figured I could swing that given how many reviews it had.
I'd love to hear more suggestions that anyone may have!

Of course! I plan to buy 3 udemy courses and start from there, practicing with other resources I found in the internet(youtube) as well
And for now the ones I have selected are: - https://www.udemy.com/course/ultimate-guide-to-digital-sketching-beginner-to-advanced - https://www.udemy.com/course/the-ultimate-drawing-course-beginner-to-advanced/

Sure, brother. But from what sources? sources for academic drawing? I am a working professional and the only time that I get is weekends. I try to spend an hour on the weekends, which is very little. But, I need sources that can provide good guidance, some good direction. Again, I feel demotivated and lost due to a lack of direction. Udemy is the online coursework where instructors upload their tutorials with voice over, here is an example: https://www.udemy.com/course/the-ultimate-drawing-course-beginner-to-advanced/
And you should definitely upload your work on Youtube. That way you also support the community and earn really good money, seriously.

Here’s an article on 3 animation books you show own.
Here’s a drawing course I’m taking right now.

It's just a course that I'm using, although I can't argue for whether or not it's effective, I still encourage you to check it out. Might be too expensive, though, but sometimes udemy courses go on sale.
This course is for if you want to learn to draw characters specifically. Like the previous, it's an expensive course, but since it's also udemy, it might go on sale some time.

So... your gift is to obligate someone to go somewhere and get educated? Man I hope they have really been talking up a storm about getting art lessons. You know that all this sort of stuff is available online these days right? Why not just get them a Udemy class? Look, its on sale now!
