    Ok, I totally fell out of drawing for a few months. But I'm in the process of taking control of my life and growing discipline, and I'm ready to start drawing consistently.

    I hope it's fine to just continue like I didn't just take a 5 month break, but if I have to restart I understand.

    This is a great idea, thanks!

    Thanks to everyone for all the advice! I'll update this someday to let y'all know what worked best for me.

    Thanks! I'll definitely check that out. If this helps me I'll be eternally grateful to you lol. This has been causing me a lot of frustration.

    Thank you for the speedy critique!

    I forgot to mention that I've been doing warm ups every session. This is actually my second time starting DAB. I started last year around this time, and quit after I competely fell apart at the rotated boxes exercise

    (when I looked back at my homework from last year I was rather amused to see that I had doodled a sad face saying "this is hard" on the rotated boxes, similar to this year.) Anyways, thanks again!

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

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.
