There's a button to start watching, next to the Get Premium button, but when you click it, it says you have to have the premium. Is that button broken?

Is it worth getting hold of a bendy artists manequin or is it best to draw from imagination? Thanks

From what I've seen, it is, yes. Do both for good development. I rely too much on references and I need to develop more skills for drawing without relying on them but references are still good. So I'd say do both.

Try lots. Experiment and figure out what seems to work best as you'll be using different types on different paper for different effects from what I've seen.

By beginner do you mean someone who is very much absolutely new or someone who has a great understanding and practice of the fundamentals? I just don’t want to get into something that may be out of current league.

These exercises don't need any great knowledge, they're fine for true beginners. Their quality will improve as your overall draftsmanship improves, but I think it's important to attempt these sorts of exercises early as they demand creativity and inventiveness even in their simple form.
