    I very much appreciate the insight, and noted on not imposing additional elements, I'll be sure not to moving forward. Thank you!

    I really appreciate all the details. I think the mass wrapping lacking complexity was something I was missing.

    I suppose I would think geometrically for the feet and muzzle for example, but forget to do the same for the muscle masses due to their more organic nature, which often lead to my arbitrary collision of each form, as I was more concerned with making sure the puzzle had all it's pieces fit, so to speak. Maybe I was fearful of making that sharp change in trajectory too, but regardless I think you hit the nail on the head in regards to what I need to work on.

    Thank you very much Andpie! I really appreciate the details here. If I have any further questions regarding texture I'll be sure to circle back.

    Wow I really appreciate the detailed write-up here. Basically all of the questions I was asking myself were answered through this, thank you! I'll tackle these in my warm-ups for sure.

    Thank you very much for the detailed critique! I'll keep working on those items in my warm-ups for sure.

    I really appreciate the insight here, and that makes sense. I noticed I was doing so especially with boxes where the planes were different sizes, like my rectangular boxes, where estimating the vanishing point so far off the page resulted in immediately diverging lines due to me trying to make them so parallel.

    Hi Rob!

    Thank you very much for the insight, I'll keep these in mind and continuing to practice them as I move forward!

    Oh wow first on the new platform, that's a huge honor! Thank you very much for the feedback, I'll go through the updated lesson 2; shading is certainly something that I'd like to work on.

    Again much appreciated for all your hard work, it's been a long time since I've felt so good about creating art.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. I'm especially fond of this one for sketching and playing around with, and it's what I used for the notorious "Mr. Monkey Business" video from Lesson 0. 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.

I would not recommend this for Drawabox - we use brush pens for filling in shadow shapes, and you do not need a pen this fancy for that. If you do purchase it, save it for drawing outside of the course.
