    Open any figure drawing instructional book, or even the majority of beginner "how to draw" books – nearly ALL of them will instruct you to draw in this manner.

    Now if you have been drawing this way for years, COOL! I know i still do!
    Drawlikeasir's channel has the BEST explanation for why you may prefer for your art to look this way, versus with a more refined line! Link:
    Search "how not to suck at line art drawlikeasir" if that doesnt work.
    And here's a professional with more credentials basically saying the same thing!
    Proko – "draw better with a tapered line" https://youtube.com/shorts/fdktylOzONw?si=RvJuABoR2SraFwNq

    Dear GOD i sincerely hope these experts on tiktok are literal children, or either have serious learning disabilities… i cannot fathom how SO MANY people could be so confident in these ignorant opinions that they have otherwise… To be so absolutely cemented in their convictions in them that they sincerely believe them to be the absolute "right" or "correct" way to go about things, in one of, if not THE MOST subjective topic (art) possible! And thats ignoring the fact that, forget the topic, its an OPINION they're touting off about as if it were law! ????????????????????????????????????‍♀️ i simply cannot imagine anyone beyond 10 years old, besides those who may sincerely struggle with learning disabilities, who think and speak like this about themselves and their opinions on things with such unwavering beliefs ????????????

    I`d love to take this paid course but heck, proko`s are always too expensive, especially for people not on the US

    I often find students get confused on this point exactly because of the "don't be choppy" statement that gets thrown around a lot. But this is a great example. If it feels like finger painting the air, then it's probably in the right direction. Fidelity of the stylus in any medium begets the confidence, as you say. Good tip! Thanks for your work! <3

    You should listen, because I have a problem and Idk how to not squeeze the pencil and now my finger has a sort of dent and hurts when I write so if you can, PLEASE STOP SQUEEZING THE PENCIL.
