Hi Brick,

I can see you put a lot of attention to detail (fur, accessories, etc), which is all good, however the overall drawing does not convey the feeling of solidity. I would recommend going through lessons 3-5 to get a better feel how to do 3D construction from primitive shapes (spheres, sausages, cones, etc) that will help you make the drawing more believable (if that's what you are aiming for).

Artistically (subjectively :P ) speaking, I kind of like the raw style of it - feels like a illustration of sacred monkey one would find in an ancient jungle temple ^^.

Thanks a lot Rokas,i appreciate your comment and yeah i definetely need to improve my construction, but it'll still be be a while until i reach lesson 3 and i think it's better to finish the 250 box challenge and lesson 2 before going to lesson 3 and beyond.What do you think?

Hi, sorry for late reply. For sure follow the website's course as officially suggested!

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.
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.
