hello, apologize for the late reply! to clear up confusion, i have alraedy finished lessons 2 and 3 but i am still practicing both of them as i feel like im still lacking a lot.

heres a link to a drawing i did a few days ago, this isnt specifically for any lessons but i wanted to try and learn how to draw heads for fun/practice , (very well aware its difficult to do and looks awful) but this is the struggle im having where i am looking at my references and stuff but it never comes out right when i actually draw, I dont know what im doing wrong or am i just not "observing" well enough?

You might want to check out a youtube video by a Syrca. Search for "Iterative Drawing". I think his approach will help you with something like the skulls. Consistency is hard to achieve. From what I can tell (I don't have it yet either) it takes mileage. Tons and tons of drawing.

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.
