Thank you for taking a look at my post! If you give me a critique, I'm happy to take a look any of your submissions(past, present or future) or upvote/follow you :) Let me know if I would be able to add more structure to anything by redoing all or a portion of the exercises. I'ld love to hear your thoughts and how I can help you!

Self-critique: Some of my arrows aren't consistent in their shading, particularly the first. My contour curves could slope more before they hit the edge of the sausage for more structure. I lose the contours of the textures on some disections, specifically the grass one, and sometimes my shading was heavy handed, ex: rocks next to ice cream. The box intersections occassionally don't make sense, since the planes I chose ot extrude were impossible based on the cross-cut I selected. This was improved on later intersection pages, since I began to understand how to visualize them.

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.
