Hi ERVI10. Thanks for the critique! I'm thankful for the kind words, and glad for the advice. You for sure nailed the point of me not ghosting enough at times. When I think back to doing some of the more "grindy" exercises I would ghost less and less as I lost focus. I will have to work on that for sure, and perhaps take breaks when fuel is running low.

I'm also glad to hear you saw confidence in my lines. Before starting the lessons on this site I used to draw really wobbly lines. I was convinced I just had really shaky hands and I would never really be great at linework. But after reading the parts about confidence and how when you put the pen to the paper the line is sort of already drawn, something just clicked and I saw instant improvement.

Will take some time to work on some personal projects (have been neglecting the 50-50 rule), then I'm off to draw a ton of boxes. Thanks again!

Heck yeah, fun drawings are, frustrating but fun to make (personally speaking!).

You're welcome for the advice! Best of luck at both the Box Challenge and personal drawings!

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

There are a lot of options for illustration software out there, but mine has always been Adobe Photoshop. I've been using it for nearly 20 years now, ever since I started fooling around with digital art, and it has served me well into my career, both in freelancing and in studio positions. One of the biggest advantages, in my opinion, for those jumping into digital art with Photoshop now is its accessibility. Where when I was younger, it'd cost hundreds, even over a thousand dollars for a software license, younger students can now get their feet wet with industry standard software for just $10/month with their Photography Plan.
