This is where the message goes!

Having trouble coming up with something to draw? No worries - while you'll eventually learn how to start from a tiny seed of a thought and gradually nurture it into a complex concept to explore through design and illustration, it's perfectly fine not to be there just yet.

For now though, here's an idea that might interest you.

Everything, a Dragon

The world of dragons and dragon-like things is a vast and varied one. You've got your traditional European ones, with six limbs (four legs, two wings), along with your wyverns (two legs, two wings), and even more as you push east into the more serpentine interpretations.

Take anything - a living creature, a vacuum cleaner, an extension cord, your friend Steve from college - and turn them into a dragon, or a draconic creature of some sort.

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.
