Hi Melos,

If you want to guarantee critiques, you can check out the unofficial critique exchange program introduced here.

Join our Discord server and read the pinned message in the channel there to see how it works. :)

I actually am a part of the server but somehow never noticed that channel?? Anyhow, I already found it, thanks for sending me there!

Same. I thought the entire discord server was the exchange program and I wasn't aware of the actual program until I'm further into the course

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
