I included the reference pictures that I used for my plant drawings.

I feel the main difficulties I ran into were the proportions and positioning of certain plant parts. The error from eyeballing them really compounds and the drawing ends up looking very different from the picture.

I also find it rather hard to connect the edges of my leaves together cleanly as I usually miss by a bit, but I feel that is something that will improve over time.

Anyways, thanks for checking my work.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
