Can the 50% rule be done digitally?

Currently I've been doing my non-exercise drawing for the 50% rule on paper, but I've been growing a bit concerned on my paper usage. Could I make the switch or would that mess things up?

Yes, the 50% rule can be done digitally, or on paper, or carved into a mahogany table. Whatever you like!

As Tygerson stated, yes - this is actually mentioned both in the page of Lesson 0 that explains what the 50% rule is, and in the video itself. It may be a good idea to review that material to ensure that there isn't anything you've forgotten about how it is applied and used.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
