I would like to do/comment more, but we are often in such a harried state here. We have a large holiday (B2B cruises) in a week, and the countries I am visiting are still requiring COVID testing and lots of paperwork. (Bermuda and Canada, so we will see how the hurricane goes.) Last week our seven y.o. printer broke, so we spent a lot of time researching , ordering a new one and setting it up.

Christel - Your amazing work never disappoints! . That was on black paper?
Kay - This is frame worthy! Hard to believe it was done in a sketchbook. Wonderful shadows.
Anne - My clear fave is the bird. Perfect proportions, color, without overdoing. Really wonderful.
Joe - Nice, and amazing you could do so many.
Deborah - Eyes and fur are just excellent.
EP- Did you work at these daily all day? Amazing you did such a volume, and so nicely composed and drawn.

made them in reverse order.Ams,Joy,EP,Kay,CaliAnn,pcj,thank you for the nice words, glad you think this. I tried these other designs. In recent months I have tried various procreate brushes, I use those that I find easier to use and less scratchy, in some lines come out more easily, others less, especially when the tip is worn out it seems different to me, I am using a protective film, this consumes them first, but without film it is also difficult for me to use my cell phone. I bought original spare tips when I almost couldn't use the old tip anymore. I try to change it after 3 months or 5 but it gets very sharp after a month or 2. They sell box of 4. The problem is that 4 tips cost 25 euros, after I read online about non-original tips online even on Amazon, 10 euros 4 or 5. I've had the doubt for weeks, I don't know if I would try them or waste money, in the comments they sometimes seem the same as the originals or worse, in some comments they are not recommended, Pencil I'm using it only to draw, maybe the cheap one would be useful to emphasise, or as a mouse. but I wouldn't know how to distinguish I tried at first, instead of buying new silicone cap tips but I can't use them and I was dirty screen.

Wonderful sketches Joe. I especially like the horses and turtle.

How frustrating that you are wearing out your pen tips. It's always difficult to decide whether to buy the "real" thing or try one of the cheaper brands.
