The 3 line weight methods that we've been exploring are all valuable tools, and it's not necessary to limit yourself to just one. In this bonus demo, I'll attempt to use ALL 3 line weight methods in the same drawing and show how you can be creative in the way you combine them.
Hey @Stan Prokopenko when demonstrating the line weight depth method at 8:14 you say that to demonstrate depth you should start from thiCC too thin compared to whats close to you as the viewer. So you start at the closest corner and make it go thiCC too thin to the right corner. But then you start up thiCC too thin again at the right corner? This confuses me shouldn't you start up at the same ThiCCness that you ended at when tapering your first line to keep consistency? at what thiccness your line will be at when you are at a certain depth in your picture?
I love how all the concepts learned are coming together! Thanks @Stan Prokopenko for this video. I started taking notes as you suggested in the previous video. Now I want to think in a personal project, however, being a beginner I'm not quite sure how I can start defining what a good project might be. Any suggestion will be more than welcome :-)
Nobody has gone over line in this much detail with me ever. Found it interesting and fun to experiment with. Stan thank you for the extra time making this video. I appreciate it and it looks like others did too.

Nice job with the line weight in these!
Thank you, Stan! Nice explanation!
This was a really helpful explanation, Stan, thank you! I had a lot of difficulty with this last assignment, but this helps clarify a number of problems I was running into. Thanks again and just wanted to say that I love this course!
Thank you Stan! I appreciate you being so proactive at trying to clarify things for us weaker students! Drawing has always been so mystical to me, I have had a hard time allowing my self to be bad while i learn the basics to get good. So i have never improved any meaningful way. Thank you for helping me give my self permission to be bad while I learn with everyone! Especially something like line weight that is so personal preference focused. I am still trying to allow my self to have a voice when I draw versus just trying to copy people exactly because I believe I couldn't make anything original of value.
No problem! You have to be bad before you get good. They say you have to get all your bad drawings out of you. Every time you do a bad drawing, that's one less that you have in you. Get them out as fast as you can! 😄
Nice! Thanks for taking the time 🙇♂️
Thank you Stan for this video and the course! I just want to say that the beauty about this course is that it makes me want to draw after every lesson. It has the technical nuances but the way it is presented with projects that give freedom to draw what you want while focussing on the specific skills, that is brilliant and so much fun! I am taking other beginner drawing courses outside Proko that are very technical with assignments on values, perspective, forms etc - which I think is absolutely necessary to do but not fun to be honest. However, I think Stan has found the magical mix of fun and learning! Also, kudos to the production team - video, sound, fx - blends right in! Looking forward to future lessons!!
Thank you Rohit! I love hearing that you want to draw after every lesson!
