I watched this in preparation for Inktober and I'm very happy I did. Thanks to the exercises I discovered what tools and styles I like most. Since this is my first course I was also surprised by the amount of practice sheets. Great work.

Fantastic job with demonstrating control exercises and different kinds of inking techniques. I sometimes struggled before with using different line weights properly in a drawing, and Jake explains how to do it in an approachable manner. Draw along...
