                          Waffles, you need to invest in a pencil extender, or do a DIY version. XD

                                I haven't drawn in a very long time, but watching this, I decided to change that. I love your videos and it's really impressive that you've taken on the Mer-May challenge. I also really like how you explain sketching (in a different video) as well as shading since those are the parts I struggle with the most in my art. Thanks so much, Waffles!

                                          sometimes when you have eraser shavings on your paper or desk I instinctively wipe my screen to try and get rid of them

                                              A pencil extender would solve your problem.

                                                  What if in the mermaid world every mermaid had a Blubfish that matched its color scheme?!

                                                    DrawingWiffWaffles - when you mentioned the mermaids gathering things and making ng clothes from what they gathered, it reminded me of that movie The Borrowers 😄
