Think Before You Spend. If you haven't yet read through Lesson 0, you absolutely should before moving forward. It covers important information on how these lessons are meant to be used, and highlights common pitfalls many students encounter that can hinder their progress as they move forwards.

As you may have noticed, Drawabox is presented in both videos and text. This is because the content we teach here is dense, and it helps students to absorb the material when it is delivered in multiple formats. While we are working to make the videos more concise and to touch on all the same major points in both text and video format, as of February 2021 we are only just beginning revising the video content.

Most of the videos are older - some by a year, some by a few - and many of them are not as up-to-date as the text content.

They are still useful, but should not be treated as a replacement for the text. Even when the videos are fully updated however, there is immense value in absorbing the material in different formats. Our brains easily become complacent, so going through it in multiple formats is more effective, even than just rewatching the same video several times. Over the years, it's become more and more apparent that reading isn't for everyone.

If for whatever reason, reading isn't an option for you, we've been collaborating with the guys over at Audiblogs to help. They're excited to improve accessibility across the internet, and I'm doing what I can to provide Drawabox as a testing ground for them. Audiblogs takes the boring, robotic text-to-speech you're probably used to and kicks it up to the next level.

If you haven't tried it already, I strongly recommend that you do - you're bound to be impressed with how it captures natural intonation and inflection, making the content here much easier to absorb, and helping you learn more efficiently and effectively. Just look for the "Listen with Audiblogs" button at the top of each page. Just remember - Audiblogs is not some big company. They're a small startup - just two guys trying to make a difference, so if you find their service useful, they certainly deserve your support.

So- if you've read through all of Lesson 0, are ready to follow the instructions of the tasks laid before you, and to both watch the videos and read through the text, let's get started. You can click the link at the bottom right of the page to move onto the next section.

These are what I use when doing these exercises. Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds). Having your work reviewed by others is critical, as those who are just starting out aren't in a position to properly judge their own work, and won't be for quite some time.

Don't be afraid to show your struggles - it's by analyzing your mistakes that we can help you grow. There are currently two places you can get your work critiqued by the community - Reddit and our Discord Chat Server. If you are interested in receiving extra help, I critique the work of those who support Drawabox on Patreon. All of these private critiques are done through reddit, in specific threads where students post their work as a comment, including a link to their work (often hosted on Imgur, though most image hosts are okay).
