    I actually think a bit of why my lines were more wobbly is because I took that 6 month break where I was drawing almost entirely digitally and uses the app I was drawing in to do any straight lines. Never the less I actually don't hate ellipses or cylinders so I don't really mind spending some time on the planes exercise.

    Ty! This does put a smile on my face... but if you don't mind me asking... what's the purpose of 250 cylinders? I can understand drawing a ton of them, but 250 seems like a way too much.

    thank you for your answer and i had another question about the additional muscle masses. how do i know when to use sharp edges and when to use soft ones like in this example? i never really understood this from the start.

    Do you really have to use your shoulder to draw everything? For smaller details, additional masses, sausage forms, and more I find to be near impossible for them to be non wobbly because it's so hard to draw from the shoulder in smaller places. I reread all the critique for lesson 4 and 5 and a lot of the times you said my lines were wobbly and non confident it was only because I drew from the shoulder.

    I actually emailed him asking if I had to restart the course or not and he said no but it would be smart to redo lesson 5 entirely. I would definitely agree.

    I AM planning on returning to dab as well and will completely redo lesson 5 as recommended by uncomfortable

Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

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).
