    That makes sense. Thank you!

    Thank you! I will keep rotating then. However, how come none of the artists I see on YouTube and Instagram or TV rotate their paper? Will there be a point where it makes sense to stop rotating the paper and draw from different angles?

    Do you rotate when you draw something like animals for Lesson 5?

    It would be helpful if Uncomfortable could demonstrate doing it for different types of drawings, on different mediums (paper, drawing tablet, iPad, sketchbook on an easel, etc)

    This is great! Thank you so much!

ComicAd Network is an advertising platform built for comics and other creative projects to affordably get the word out about what they're making. We use them for our webcomic, and while they don't pay much, we wanted to put one of their ad slots here to help support other creatives.

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.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
