is anyone else finding making tapered lines difficult? I feel that when I try and slow down so that it gets darker in the middle the lines becomes sloppier, but if I try and do a quicker and more confident line then it is usually uniform in its darkness
While I wouldn't really consider myself level 2, this assignment looked really fun so I decided to have a go at it. I used a mole because it's facial features are more or less just a snout and a mouth, and I think they look kind of funny.
Alright I got around to doing the level 1 images. I am a bit happy with how the hand turned out at the proportions didnt seem too far off. As for the penguin I am not 100% sure, but with the girl and that circle thing I fell back into using the hairy lines so I am not super happy about that.
The warming-up exercises. Guess I’ll repeat those before drawing from imagination next time. I used a see -through frame with a six box drawing to help with proportions. The oval is off, because of my standing position it was harder.

I'm trying to practice tapered strokes right now, and I am noticing that most of the time my lines get darker towards the end instead of lightening up. But when I deliberately try to vary the pressure of the pencil the line gets wobbly and too dark overall. The quicker lines tended to be the same level of dark throughout. Should I focus more on speed, or am I supposed to plan more in putting the pencil down lightly, increasing pressure, then making lighter as I finish?
I know this is not directly related to the subject at hand, but I wanted to ask: when you are learning the fundamentals like gesture, construction, or perspective, is it better to try it on paper or on digital? I ask because I recently got a digital tablet for my birthday and I find that though comparing the references to my drawings is easier, actually making the lines and navigating clip studio paint is pretty difficult. So I was wondering if it would be better to focus practicing on paper for a while longer then coming back to digital, or to keep trying at digital right now even if the progress is much slower.
day 11, I tried to draw my headphones case. It was really hard to get the right angle for the top plane (a bit like last time). Does anyone have experience drawing objects in perspective from real life? I've practiced 1 and 2 point but I find it doesn't really help me all that much when I am trying to draw something tilted in real life.
