    Thanks for your critique, I'll keep on keeping on! Took a look at your lesson 3 out of curiosity and i must say, your lines are extremely smooth :]

    Wowie, you've really outdone yourself on that PItcher Crab! Also love the legs on that Fly-Trap-fly. Keep it up!

    Thank you! Nice to think that somebody is actually looking at my drawings :D

    Thanks so much for your review!

    And yes, i was trying to "fix" the lines in some places, wanted to improve my accuracy, but now i know that wasn't the right thing to do. Also, i indeed wasn't always using the ghosting method for my hatching lines, not always had the patience to do so. When i saw the previous review, 250 box challenge was almost complete, BUT your tips and suggestions are noted, will be using them in for the next lessons. Thanks again!

    Wow, i really did not expect any reply here so i moved on 250 box challenge and i actually finished it last week, thank you so much for your review of my work!

    I'll be sure to scan the albums and post my 250 boxes here as well as the other drawings since i was following the 50/50 rule, meanwhile i'll move to lesson 2.

    Thanks again!

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.

Drawabox-Tested Fineliners (Pack of 10, $17.50 USD)

Let's be real here for a second: fineliners can get pricey. It varies from brand to brand, store to store, and country to country, but good fineliners like the Staedtler Pigment Liner (my personal brand favourite) can cost an arm and a leg. I remember finding them being sold individually at a Michael's for $4-$5 each. That's highway robbery right there.

Now, we're not a big company ourselves or anything, but we have been in a position to periodically import large batches of pens that we've sourced ourselves - using the wholesale route to keep costs down, and then to split the savings between getting pens to you for cheaper, and setting some aside to one day produce our own.

These pens are each hand-tested (on a little card we include in the package) to avoid sending out any duds (another problem with pens sold in stores). We also checked out a handful of different options before settling on this supplier - mainly looking for pens that were as close to the Staedtler Pigment Liner. If I'm being honest, I think these might even perform a little better, at least for our use case in this course.

We've also tested their longevity. We've found that if we're reasonably gentle with them, we can get through all of Lesson 1, and halfway through the box challenge. We actually had ScyllaStew test them while recording realtime videos of her working through the lesson work, which you can check out here, along with a variety of reviews of other brands.

Now, I will say this - we're only really in a position to make this an attractive offer for those in the continental United States (where we can offer shipping for free). We do ship internationally, but between the shipping prices and shipping times, it's probably not the best offer you can find - though this may depend. We also straight up can't ship to the UK, thanks to some fairly new restrictions they've put into place relating to their Brexit transition. I know that's a bummer - I'm Canadian myself - but hopefully one day we can expand things more meaningfully to the rest of the world.
