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 Magic Vessel

Look, I get it. Every djinn and their mother wants the shiniest, most opulent bottle to call their eternal prison. I'm even willing to accept that beyond the vanity of it all, the eye-catching nature of it even serves a purpose, making it more likely that if found, your unwitting saviour might deign to clean it off and renew its sparkle.

But come ON, the times have changed! The Ottoman Empire has fallen, and there are so many new and interesting prisons to call home!

Pick a container - anything with four "walls" and a lid - and design the djinn that would call it home. Consider how elements of the vessel would reflect upon the djinn's own design, and vice versa!

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
