Ghosting is fine as long as you don't actually draw the line. Also sometimes the VP won't be on the page so it won't help so ghosting in the 'direction' is better. I think this will help in eventually visualizing it. Uncomfortable talks about this in the 250 Box Challenge Critique video (Syllastew).

Good luck :)

Thank you too for the reply

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
