Well done! I've also just completed lesson 2 and it was a doosy. I think one thing you could really benefit from is just taking things a bit slower. It's often hard with these lessons and exercises but it really can be worth it in the end. Try to prevent yourself from scribbling and or doing guesswork.

Some of your textures and dissections, as well as the intersections and organic arrows seem a bit rushed and messy.

Your organic intersections and organic forms were great!

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. I'm especially fond of this one for sketching and playing around with, and it's what I used for the notorious "Mr. Monkey Business" video from Lesson 0. 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.

I would not recommend this for Drawabox - we use brush pens for filling in shadow shapes, and you do not need a pen this fancy for that. If you do purchase it, save it for drawing outside of the course.
