You have nice aligning curves in yours, but a few them aren't aligned as neatly which throws the viewer off. I tried to show it in the notes where I thought your curves are strong and where it could use improvement. Also, adding some lines in the creases can help identify where the arrow is curving. And careful with the arrowhead...I think you elongate the arrowhead too much. Hopefully this helps.

hey thanks for the help! yeah i have a huge trouble with trying to replicate an identical curve underneath, i try to go quick so its a smooth line but i cant draw the line super slow or ill wobble if that makes sense? im not sure how to get a smooth line and also make sure its alligned correctly at the same time?

Try to draw confidently rather than quick or slow and always keep your eyes on the line your are following not your hand. You will always be aware of where your hand is peripherally.

okay i see, so its just a matter of practicing a lot? i wasnt sure if it was my hand-eye cordination going out of sync or something im not sure so i was kinda feeling pretty hopeless after a few days of practice lol....

would it be feasible to go slow at first to align my curves and work my way up to more confidently and quick lines?

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
