    Thanks a lot. Hope I did it correctly.

    Didn't you mean the axis line through the cylinder? I did one on each in black.

    ...Ok going back to the my first lesson to play a game of spot the difference I think I see what you meant. I forgot that center line on each color. I guess in re reading the lesson I must have skimmed that part and overlooked it.

    Would it be alright if I applied the correction to the last set that I already drew? I understand if not but my brain does kind of hurt from drawing so many cylinders.

    Ok thanks. Im not entirely sure I understand what you meant in your explanation of the difference in foreshortening between the two circles. Are you saying that the cirle facing the viewer has a more extreme angle or the one facing away?

    Thank you taking the time for another detailed critique.

    Regarding the sausage forms I know I need to keep in mind that both ends are the same. I Definitely will get distracted in the act of trying to find shapes and not give the ones I'm drawing the focus it deserves.

    Are there any particular demos I should revisit before moving on. (since it seems like this is the last lesson using organic forms?)

    Thanks for the critique, that's a lot of things to work on. I think I understand a little better what you've meant about adding 3d shapes on top of each other.

    I know I'm still having issues with line accuracy when doing my ghosted lines. Is there anything I can do to address this?

    Thank you for the in depth critique. I really apprecfiate the actionable steps included. I feel like I made a lot of progress on these redraws alone. New attempt.

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.
