I have trouble drawing faces with consistent and accurate proportions. Do I keep practicing away until my eye can match those proportions, or should I start learning about the anatomy of the skull? I feel like I’m missing the knowledge of how the face should be structured but don’t want to jump ahead and ruin the momentum on where the practice should be focused (if that is the case).

Do you keep opacity constant or are there contexts where you would make the opacity stronger/weaker?

Is the Proko charcoal brush available for Procreate? If not is there a charcoal brush you recommend?

Is there a watercolor course being considered? I see a lot of artists speak about how difficult it can be but I have trouble finding resources that really go into the fundamentals of watercolor in the really approachable way Proko does.

Thanks for answering the question! Follow-up: are there major differences in practicing perspective digitally vs. traditionally?

While you were a student, were there any concepts or techniques in drawing or painting you found particularly difficult to improve in? Pro artists make things look so effortless but curious if there's something you felt that "bashing head against brick wall" feeling when you were learning!

(And if so, how did you address it? Sometimes I try something else and have a vivid "aha" moment but it seems too case-by-case for me to notice a pattern)

Is there a personal art project you're working on or worked on recently that you're passionate about (so not necessarily for Proko)?

Does the Proko skull ship to other countries? I'm located in Korea but would love one!

I have trouble creating consistent results when I try to practice drawing bodies or faces, even with "simple" things like gesture. I feel like I'm missing the structure (i.e. anatomy for example) but I don't want to jump ahead without the fundamental skills. While I'm all traditional now, I was thinking of starting to draw digitally specifically to try drawing right over images of models so I could mentally get used to realistic proportions. Is this a bad idea?
