Can i use different color fineliner or should it be black?

8:28 AM, Sunday May 2nd 2021

So, basically i ordered fineliners and waited almost two weeks so i could start with lesson 1. it arrived today but they sent me multicoloured pens instead of all black which i ordered. ill start with black for now but if that finishes, can i continue with different colored fine liners? or should i order black ones? I really want to do it right.

if its a clear, visible color, and if you make sure to only use one color for each drawing / page, you should be fine!

It needs to be dark, preferably black. It will benefit you to stick consistently with black, it's just crisper and easier for reviewing.

I believe that as long as your color is nice and visible it should be fine. Once you start getting into textures is when I believe you should switch to black markers, as drawing texture might be a tad bit confusing with a colored marker.

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
