Proportions only really matter at lesson 6 and 7, in the case of lesson 5 you should focus more on making the construction as solid as possible. That way even if you drew the head a little too big or the body a little smaller etc. it will still look fine as long as it's been constructed properly. If you focus too much on proportions you will not get the same value from the exercise as you would be too worried trying to make it look good.

ahhh that makes sense i was worried that if my drawing weren't porporationally (hoping i spelled that correct) accurate it would damage the exercise's quality it's good to know what to focus on instead rather than worrying about the excess stuff thanks!

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.
