I've finally finished lesson 5. I spent a bit longer to understand the concepts fully. I felt at the start it was a big jump to go from insect construction to animal construction however after some time it became a tiny bit easier and i felt a lot more confident towards the end of lesson 5. I enjoyed creating the hybrid animal as funky as it came out. The link should work hopefully and everything required should be in that link.

As always, any critiques would be much appreciated.

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).
