    Looks like I have to start a quest of finding the treasures during night using a flashlight lol!

    When I said that Main character punches the villian , I want to bring home the idea how villian sag and bends (due to the pain he felt,) downwards when an external force or mass disturbs it's initial stage like how the additional mass sags and wraps the underneath mass when dropped as if that mass below is punching it to bend and wrap it!

    (Looks like you don't watch much of a shonen mangas , do you?)

    And you don't misunderstand anything so rest assured! Thanks for reply

    Thank you soon much for your valuable critique! If you don't mind I hope you can answer some doubts of mine

    Like in first case where you responded that one light source coming from one direction should be considered, but when do ne so the shadows don't follow the curve of the mass underneath, or do they?

    I was also quite shocked and happy to see that you considered my animal exercise solid!! ( I was expecting some more errors besides paws to be there)

    When ever I drew the animal from reference I usually measured its proportion taking head as base, and when I tried to add some mass I think that both the additional mass and underneath one are bags full of wheat and will sag downwards,

    Just like when MC punches the villian, the way he bends forward something like that

    is it a good thinking or should I make adjustments.

    (And a quick note : completed my 150 cylinders only 100 left???? )

    Once again thank s for your response

    Sorry for the inconvenience, I will keep that factor in mind from now on ????????

    Actually at this point all I can say I , thank you.

    I have actually picked drawing just for the sake of just bringing my imagination to life both by drawing and animating. The free plan which I discussed with you a while back will help to provide a boost to draw a simple characters ( and I am happy with it, NOT satisfy).

    Moreover I am neither working towards nor expecting to look for an art job in big AAA companies.

    So to manage time to do part time job to get paid art education is a little impossible.( Thanks for advice anyways ????)

    With a little bit of knowledge about drawing character and after looking a bit of basic of animation , I will try to post it on social media ( of course not doing silly animation but cool fight scenes either from imagination or from manga like OPM )something thing this


    (Don't take it too seriously, I know it's a work of professional from a professional place )

    Or I could illustrate emotions like Sam does art or can do fan arts

    I will also look to create an audience with my stand alone artwork to do commission , talking with other artists like you , critiquing and all that good stuffs)

    Till then I have to manage to remain standing in the wind called ART. And side by side have to complete my studies .

    Wishing you a good health ????

    First of all, Thank you!! I was starting to doubt whether what am I doing in 50 percent didn't fulfill its purpose!!

    It's been 2 years since I first started drawing, for all these years I have only collected information I could and somehow found some of these free resources (DRAWABOX included).

    It's maybe due to my background or the place I live in that I can't have access to the paid tutorials or so. Even if I had done access to paid tutorials I would apply to courses which may be about digital drawings or backgrounds because my free plan will somehow or a little , will teach me about figures , enough to convey my stories or to open a account to publish.

    It was only few months back that I thought of making manga in future years but somehow dropped it ( not because I think I may not be good at it but of that I don't have any access to tools either for making it or of learning it)!!


    AS FOR THE books,. It maybe rooted to some academic stress or so, that whenever I open a book to read it makes me think as if I have to memorise everything for there is exam tomorrow

    I hope you are doing well!!!

    I am hoping if you can guide me through some queries I have presented before!!????????

    3:59 PM, Friday January 13th 2023

    Yes, you are absolutely right.

    After analysing the problems with my both progress and process is the FEAR OF DRAWING BAD !!!!

    Even though I have watched drawabox video about mindset and other videos and so countless times, I still find myself strucking right into this monster.

    The fear was so overwhelm that it almost made me quit art few months ago

    This fear even knocks on door even when I am doing 50 percent drawing. I find that it has adversely affected the drawing I had done even if they were for fun.

    Damn,! Use and throw method ????

    If you don't mind , can you explain/ elaborate your last paragraph a little more because I think that's a important part for progress, I would be happy to hear more for you!!

    5:47 AM, Friday January 13th 2023

    Thanks mate!! If you don't mind , can you please again send the image , I can't fully figure it out. Here is the one I did , again after countless times

    Actually it's hard for me to maintain doing drawabox lessons, left alone the 50 percent one.

    Moreover it will become more complex for me if I start doing figures along with drawabox.

    That's why i was asking whether should I draw figures in 50 percent rather than the drawing prompts!

    But after completing it I have planned a 6 to7 years complete schedule for figure, like a plan for free, gathered from different resources because I don't have any MONEY.

    HERE IS MY PLAN if you are interested-

    Gathering basic information about humans(like torso one)- 1year

    Love Life Drawing( beginner series, fresh eyes, assignment list)- 3 years

    Curriculum for solo artist- 3 years.

    After all this I would see what I lake (must be background or so) and after that animation and then posting on media for money!!

    For like books, l usually take less care as I hate reading!! Moreover I there were to be any books they are in pdf form!

    If you have some other FREE resource that you think I should include , you can tell me ????

    Here is an unsolicited advice : if you are thinking of joining a specific gaming company in character design,

    You should try learning the style and design of a specific gaming company. A league of legend company will never apoint a call of duty type of artist!!

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.
