I picked up figure drawing again in April 2020. This album is my progress to date.

Currently working through FORCE which seems to be clicking better for me than other sources like Proko or Hampton.

Naturally some NSFW ahead what with nude bodies.

Are you doing Proko? That's really nice improvement btw

I didn't find Proko explained stuff well enough for me. I've picked up bits and pieces from all over the place. Some of the recent stuff I took up a 2 day trial of Mike Mattesi's FORCE course online which helped a bit. I still don't really get what I'm doing though. lol

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.
