Hello,

good job completing Lesson 2, all exercises look great though not much to say, the only mistake I see is in shading on intersections - when you shade round forms like sphere and cylinder with hatching lines that kinda flattens the form (i.e. spheres look cut off) - instead try hatching like exercise suggests.

Good luck in your art journey!

Ah - thanks for pointing that out! I knew it looked wrong, but wasn't sure what else to do, you pointed me in the right direction!

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. 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.
