If you are familiar with Imgur maybe you can help me out. I submitted my Lesson 1 with Imgur and was able to get all pages uploaded and get a single link so that you could scroll through it all. Today I was not able to get any link for my 250 Box submission. I had 42 pages and it showed them when I was on the page, but when I used the link to come back to it, blank. No images. I tried fewer pages and got the same result. Everything was grayed out when I added the pages so there was no way to post it. I finally signed up for an account with Imgur with the same result. Finally, after a couple of hours of messing with it I just created an album (which I couldn't get a link for) and got individual links for each page. So my 250 box homework submission includes 42 individual links. Very frustrating!

Any ideas?

To create a post on imgur you only have to click on the top create new post button. Then you drop the images and after you add a title you click one of the two buttoms on the right, either share hidden or to the community, after clicking them you should have the link to your post

I get that. That's what I was doing. I can click the Create post at the top left, add images which I can see, but the To Community and Hidden buttons are grayed out. I can't select either one. All the other controls are grayed out as well. And it doesn't matter whether I add all 42 pages or a single page. I get the same thing. Even when I sign in and use my account I am unable to post pics. I was able to create an album. No link is available for the album, so I got 42 individual links, one for each image. That was all I could do. Seems like something has changed with Imgur. I got it to work fine on lesson 1.

That's weird, have you tried trying it out in another browser?

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.
