    I did the revised exercises with as much care as I could.

    I'm eager to read your comments.

    Thank you for your reply.

    It is incredibly useful in the advice and steps to be taken.

    I will re-read and redo the forementioned exercises.

    Hey, I really like the pair of opposite textures that you made with the flowy, almost feathery hair and the face.

    I recommend that you avoid telling that you made mistakes upfront; that doesn't help "selling" your piece, though I honestly was surprised when I saw the good quality of your work.

    Thank you very much for your feedback.

    I will continue to practice taking into consideration what I do good and what I can improve.

    I really like the metaphor of shape.

    I like to hear podcasts, as it feels like I'm working with another people around.

    I recommend Draftsmen, hosted by Stan Prokopenko (that Proko) and Marshall Vandruff (another really great art teacher).

    Also interesting is Nick Animation Podcast.

    Thanks for sharing your work with us!

    It takes courage to show your art over the internet with strangers.

    You seem to enjoy expressing emotional states with your drawings, that's a good thing.

    Keep at it!

    I understand.

    Sometimes I just make quick scribbly lines all over the place, with no meaning, just for the joy of seeing the pencil making marks, like a little child.

    It reminds me of "automatic drawing"

    It looks great, don't worry about shading too much, that's the icing of the cake, as long as your picture is clear, all good.

The recommendation below 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.

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.
