Oh no... I totally forgot to scan them. I remember doing them during a stressful period at work (that's where I scan all my lessons). I hope a photo from my phone is good enough, I put them in the same folder but here are the links to the individual sheets.



Your critique is awesome by the way. I'm inspired to do video critiques myself. Thank you so much for taking the time, what you pointed out about ghosting even the smaller leaf details is true. I forget to remind myself of this when I get lost in the details.

Yup, that's good like I expected, just be careful because on some ellipses you aren't drawing through them twice.

Glad I could help! That said, good luck on lesson 4! Keep up the good work!

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.
