Note: I finished this months prior but just wasn't able to submit it immediately. I don't have much thoughts about this considering how long it took me to upload it here. Thank you for taking the time to critique this.

You could use less contour curves on your organic forms, using a lot of them undermines the construction.

Also I don't think necessary to use countour lines on wings as they are mostly flat.

The legs on the jumping spider feel flat, you could construct larger sausages and build on top of them.

Everything else seems consistent, so good job.

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
