    I thought this was an interesting Kickstarter but not without its faults (I mean those books look pretty cool I wouldn't want to sketch in them).

    I like the sketchpad with the pencils, but it can be costly but some of the lower pledges seem to have nice options. There's also the ability to gift this Kickstarter which might be fun to do in support for budding artists.

    Seems like a nice concept. But still, there's nothing wrong with a sketchbook and free online tutorials. I can't say i'd like to sketch in them either.

    Actually this is a good idea since this is the same people that did that anatomical male reference. Also the fact since you can only do so much with digital art and free online tutorials. It will be nice to have something physical to read as well as learn from sketching.

    I've been trying hard to find art-related shit in my town

    Best I've got was today, in a "modern art" cafe with related workshops on the premises

    meh

    So I came here and looked at Arshes' link

    Find out what 3D Total is, as well as LayerPaint

    Just saw where the project publisher for is based

    Found out that they're both based a short walk from where I currently am with this laptop right now and I pass them every wednesday without knowing

    interesting

    This is interesting, but I feel like this offers little more than carrying a colouring book with pencils taped on it.
    I even feel like this sort of thing has been done before.

    I really love the idea personally (I'm such a dumb artist I never seem to be able to make up my mind about what to doodle next), but the prices they're asking for as far as the cool backups go are way high for me boooo hoo hoo :[ I mean for printing stuff on decent quality paper and getting nice leather holders it IS gonna be expensive, can't help that, but still.... weeeh

    That's the problem for me, if I get sketchbooks I get ones that aren't that expensive for practice. Because if the sketchbook is too nice you get all anal about what to sketch in it, or making your sketches "perfect"

    Getting something that nice and well put together will end up being an artbook than a sketchbook.

    Just letting people know there are a day left for this Kickstarter.

    Also looks like you'll get quite a few videos if you had funded over a certain level due to their stretch goals.

    I'm quite interested now that it's reached its stretch goals.

    I'm not sure how much to pledge, though. I'm more interested in the videos than the folder, so I dunno how to go about getting those.

    Yeah, I was really confused between if I should go for the £21 or £51 option cos I was under the impression that the £21 was just the folder.

    It is just the folder but the stretch goals give you the downloads. I'd say put in 8 more and get the
