Lesson 4: Applying Construction to Insects and Arachnids

- Does the chair I'm sitting in matter? Strange question, but I have a swivel chair that can be wobbly since my arm isn't achored to my desk.
I haven't thought about it until recently and tried drawing in a stable piano seat.
- Also strange, but how "fast" should I be drawing. I know it should be fast enough to make the mark clean and confident,
but sometimes if I'm drawing something like ellipses or contour curves I find it difficult to connect their ends to other lines, like lining them up in a sausage form.
When I draw fast it's like I'm trying to draw fast enough that I can't "think" while drawing the line so I don't correct it mid-draw and make it wobbly
When I ghost ellipses and plan my mark, should I still be "thinking" as the line is being drawn, like applying corrections as I draw? I don't mean correcting based on what I am seeing, but correcting based on my "plan" from ghosting before?
