Thanks for these lessons. Already seeing some progress but I know I have a lot of room for improvement. Circles felt rough in particular. Last few exercise were good challenges. Noticing when I slow down and really focus, take more time, flow and accuracy come together better. Probably rushed more than I really should have at times with these, but in a strange way, these exercises are one of the few things giving me a reason to slow down at all lately. Could definitely use more of this. Do I move on to 250 boxes now?

I think your pages look good and moving on to 250 boxes is a great next step. If circles felt challenging then they would probably make for a great warmup. Well done!

While you have already received critique from a community member, I do want to point out that if you want official critique from Uncomfortable or one of the TAs, you'll need to resubmit this for official critique using your credits. If you don't care about official crits and just want to support what Uncomfy is doing here at DaB, then let me know and I'll go ahead and agree with TinyMighty's crit so that you can get your lesson 1 badge ^u^

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.
