    I can't even create a dot using an overhand grip. Guess I'll give up on drawing.

    'The two common ways to hold your pencil while drawing. The first, is the tripod grip-' RIP @ me, watched the video hoping I might learn how to do the first step, how use a tripod grip. I haven't gotten to the point of drawing using the shoulder, I can't hold the pencil itself right 😂

    @Proko Hi… I know this video was posted 5 years ago, and I kind of trying to do the over-hand grip but it is really hard, I can't really draw well. I think I need an exercises using this, if you don't mind, could you please post a video, doing or just focusing on over-hand grip exercises, even just a short video will help a lot. Thanks.

    So I can get a specific kind of pencil and sharpend it in a specific kind of way so I can hold it in a specific kind of way… Or I can just hold it normaly. Got it.

    I remember a year ago i had damaged my wrist from drawing too much, so i learned how to use my whole arm to draw.
    It was really hard at first, but after a year i can proudly say that i have so much more control over my arm and strokes. But there is still a long way to go! :]

    If I draw with a beginner style should I still use the object you are using or should I buy that?
