added comment inSearching Lines
This is what I like about drawing digitally. I can make my "tought vomiting lines" (love that term) or make some rough layout lines with a broad brush and than put that in the back with low opacity (like putting a piece of paper over it on a lighttable) and go over it with cleaner, now more confident lines. Does that make sense?
Absolutely. I’m less afraid try things or put down that first mark

Hi all, I'm really excited about this. I hope I'm not the only "oldie" here. I'm 50yo, working as a nurse, have been drawing a lot in my teens and then stopped completely. I started again about 6 years ago but never had any training like this. However intuition only takes you so far, so I have been looking for a way to learn basic skills for some time. And here it is! I really hope I can keep up with the lessons as they come along ...
Wow I felt like I was an anomaly and here you all are! Wanted be be a professional artist in high school, life happened, babies were born, motherhood became a full time job. Never lost that “pull” to pick up a pencil and draw but was alway so dissatisfied with what I put on the paper. Years went by. Now my kids have kids and I still want to do this.
