    I was drawing boxes with parallel lines on purpose. I didn't get the real intention of the exercise on the time I started the challenge, now I see I was doing it wrong, looks like I should start it all over again.

    Thank you. Looks like I have to start all over again...

    I do put points first, but I feel like I have to choose between hitting a straight line into these points or using my shoulder. I feel like I can't do both when I try to be accurate.

    So it is normal to feel pain? Because it's painful to me when I try to use my shoulder and I feel like I have to choose between using my shoulder or drawing straight lines.

    When I put my elbow on the table I see that I don't use the shoulder so I try not doing it.

    Thank you very much!

    I will strive to improve with your advices.

This is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. 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.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
