And who knows this type of pencil sharpener? It was popular in my school days - yes, children from primary schools used razor blades.

So I purchased everything on this list and I'm really happy, everything showed up already and it looks really Great. But does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep all this stuff organized and accessible? As it stands now I have a huge Amazon box full of art supplies, and I am worried things are gonna get lost fast.

I use shallow plastic food boxes with cover (ca. 20 x 15 x 6 cm). Transparent, easy to wash, easy to stack. And cheap. Perfect for pencils, fine-liners and all that stuff.

I hoard art supplies more than use them. Hoping to turn that around with this class and a daily habit of having fun while making art. This was relaxing and enjoyable, which I need to remind myself art as a hobby is supposed to be. Looking forward to the basics course!

Ha, ha, @Stan Prokopenko, it seems the community has already started the course, without waiting for you :-D

Because the value changes on the curved surface are not linear. Look at that lesson by Dorian Iten: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vapw6n6FyU&list=PLO5emhHKYxgXNqOlHTHKiQPkLf8tDodgJ&index=19

It reminds me David Bowie as a Goblin King in the "Labyrinth" movie (the ballroom scene).

Hey, I bought this course awhile ago and haven't gotten the chance to getting to watching the course until today due to being a student trying to get an associates for my major in Illustration at my community college. These are my practice gesture drawings, which took around 10-15 minutes each I know gestures should be done faster with less detail but for some reason my brain and hand can't work like that atm due to my adhd so just bare with me.

Perhaps you just should use the slide-show option in your photo viewer? 30 seconds and the next reference photo appears...

Simpifying animals into geometric shapes was hard. Do you maybe have some suggestions on how I might improve these?

I think you've overcomplicated your sketches. Try to find simpler shapes first, as ovals and curves as in these examples: https://drawabox.com/lesson/5/5/step1 https://drawabox.com/lesson/5/2/step1 The similar method is building animals from simple boxes, spheres, cylinders, like on the picture below - it's my own drawing exercise.

Question, does this method work with faces with larger eyes? I'm having trouble fitting my usual (or preferred) drawing style with this method,,

Look at the lesson "Draw ANY Head Type with the Loomis Method – Part 2". It's about adapting the Loomis method to various faces. Children for example - they have completely different proportions (small nose, big eyes etc.)

Maybe it's a technical matter? Try various sensitivity pressure settings of your stylus. This can give more natural looking lines - thinner and brighter by little pressure. When the pressure sensitivity is set too high, even a light touch gives even, dark, thick lines - not varying much.

There's no reaction video this time? By the way, the skull models should actually go to the worst participants - to practise. The best ones can already draw it well :-D

Yeah they come in waves. I just removed a bunch. It should be clean now! Thank you for reporting!

You have missed something, the whole topic: https://www.proko.com/community/topics/different-types-of-narratives At the first glance looks like a little off-top discussion about poetry, but there are only essay writing service ads.

Are there any moderators here? There is more and more spam on the forum. Just look here for example: https://www.proko.com/community/categories/community-challenges I've also reported spam in the other topics in the last days, but it has not been deleted.

Dana, I just can't believe that! I have a home-schooled teenage daughter... But let’s talk about drawing. I also think many of the courses from the Proko site are rather advanced, and this can be overwhelming. We are just not the target (yet...). The Draftsmen podcast - this is completely not my world. But look at that playlist "Drawing Basics" from Proko YT: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtG4P3lq8RHFRfdirLJKk822fwOxR6Zn6 I've always wished there were more lesson for beginners - and I think the new course will be at this level. But it’s a good idea to use other resources. I began with Drawabox and a book „The Art of Basic Drawing” by William F. Powell, Michael Butkus, Walter Foster (it was published in many languages). I can also recommend: https://www.youtube.com/user/thevirtualinstructor https://www.youtube.com/c/TheDrawingDatabaseMarcLeoneNKUsota https://www.youtube.com/user/LighterNoteProd But… don't get caught up in the trap of "watching more than practising". Just buy a fineliner and start step-by-step exercises from Drawabox. Drawing quickly becomes a habit and sooner or later you’ll see the progress.

It's not a new drawing (I made this comparison a year ago), but matches this thread.

And if you need references for Drawabox exercises (textures, plants, animals), I have a rich collection at Pinterest: https://pin.it/1xDnnEL

Of course, it's beneficial! Even if you want to draw only from observation, it's much easier to do it, when you understand the relations between objects in the 3D space - you can better transform them into 2D and the drawings doesn't look flat. And the learning progress is much faster than by just "copying the lines" from observation. Believe me, this is my own experience. Take look at my album, I'm learning to draw as a veeeery adult person (just for fun). I started from null and I am delighted with the Drawabox. It really works!

It’s now or never! Perhaps not quite halloweeny, but I always felt „not ready” for Proko challenges and finally for the first time: 1) I had any idea for a drawing, 2) I've managed to do the work on time.

I know, there's "Money Back Guarantee", but I think a free sample lesson would be a great idea anyway.
