    If you can afford it I highly recommend getting the paid critique!

    Do you have access to a tablet, or a drawing program such as procreate / photoshop? Because sometimes what helps me is taking an image of the animal and drawing over it on a seperate layer, and blocking in the pieces of the underlying anatomy (basically I trace over the image breaking it down into spheres and boxes that might make up it's construction). I hope that makes sense!

    --Also I find feline creatures to be super difficult to draw too, so good luck, you're not alone!

    So I went back over both critiques, and rewatched some demos to try again. I couldn't complete a drawing nor a pager of organic forms without mistakes. I started getting very in my own head about getting everything correct, and grinding on pages (which I realise isn't the point). Whilst I realise the pages I'm submitting contain errors, I'd rather get feedback to see if what I'm doing is actually improving and how far I am from understanding what's being taught.

    Thank you!

    After reading through your critique and the mentioned demos, I've tried my hand at the revisions. Please let me know how I've fared. Thanks so much!

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.

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
