I've been working on week 1 basics now for 2 weeks and i struggle a lot with the lightness of the lines. At first i though it was the size of the paper so for the second week i switched to an old (admittingly bad quality) sketchbook. I also switched from a 2B to a 2H pencil. I still struggle, so any tips are welcome. I'm going to try switching to a coloured pencil next.
Also, being lefthanded i struggle a lot with certain movements. Drawing a straight line diagonally from left-bottom to right-topside is difficult, the same goes for right-curving lines. I hold my pencil in de overhand grip but really have to curve my wrist in either way to get a halfway decent line.
Lastly, would it be better to stand or to sit at a desk to draw? if i sit, my schoulder-movement is restricted; if i stand then i can't reach the bottom of my paper very well.
Can i move on to week 2 or should i work on week 1 a little more?
