I think the problem is that I rushed through this lesson. I also think that I incorrectly (not) applied what was told to do as you say in this review. I will review my method to apply what you and the lesson said for that not happen again.

I have some questions on certain points that I don't understand.

In this passage you say "draw around the small ellipses on the ends of the forms two full times before lifting your pen off the page" this means that I also have to apply it during contour curves? And these three paragraphs :

-"The other points I wanted to make with the bird were to be sure to use the outer line of your (2D) ellipses to represent the edge of your (3D) ball forms."

-"Each mass has its own, fully enclosed, complete silhouette, and where they overlap they do so in 3D space. Do not cut one mass off where it passes behind another mass as we see repeatedly along the top of the hybrid."

-"We have to be mindful of how the marks we make are cuts along the curving surface of the cranial ball - working in individual strokes like this (rather than, say, drawing the eye socket with an ellipse) helps a lot in reinforcing this idea of engaging with a 3D structure."

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.

### Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
