    _ Sean's Sketchbook <Clever phrase>

    Hey everyone. Dispite whatever my registration date may read, I am a new member to the site. I made an account a long time ago, but then never got to actually do anything with it.

    Anyway, I used to be on top of my game way back in the day, and dispite the 6 dozen times I have tried to kick-start it back, I just haven't been able to. Parent's spending months in ICU or my paycheck just never adding up. Yunno, life and all it's glorious glory. Anyway, I have a new job now and amazingly being number one in sales in my department, I still find ample time to doodle. SO I have started drawing again and would like some feedback. I have seen two old acquantinces come here and grow to heights I would have never dreamed, so I hope I can learn a fraction of what they have. (Holler to my peeps Justin Oaksford and GraySapphire/Green Topaz!)

    Anyway, on to the REASON why people make sketchbook threads.

    yeah, I have picked up some bad habits, so I hope I can continue to find the time to draw and hopefully find where I do things wrong and correct them. As it is, my full-time job allows for some kill-time and this week I will be picking up a second job. So I will try my best to keep at it.

    And thanks for the welcome!

    Hey man. It cool to hear youre getting back into art. You have a nice start to your sketchbook. Favila made a true statement. It is definatley is the easiest way to improve. Another fantasic way is to start studing books that teach you how to draw. I never did this at first and I totally regret it because I had to take huge steps backward to reinforce my foundation skills. One awesome collection of books that will launch you straight into improving would be the Loomis collection. You can download them for free here........ http://24.247.130.240:8882/

    There is also a collection of books created by a fella called Bridgeman. Iam still looking for a free verison of those because Iam a bit of cheap skate. I know you can buy them online.

    Have fun duude
    C&C welcome

    Hey, thanks for dropping by on my sketchbook.

    You've got a great grasp on hatching. What did you use for those first drawings? It kinda looks like ball-point pen.

    Yeah, everything so far is ball-point. I did them at work, and without drawing too much attention to myself (pun not intended) I just use what they have there. Printer paper and ball-point pen.

    Ball point pen is a great medium! I use it all the time in my sketch books (dun have any of it on here though).

    Your cross hatching is great and I love the abstract shape-things you've done, especially the one with color. Just keep on practicing! Practice practice practice x3

    ok, i found a relatively older sketch in one of many journals and decided it was delicious fodder for prisma practice.

    i love me prisma colored pencils!

    the second is actually the first drawing i did of the guy who's shown up a couple times so far. i just lost this paper until i found it at work in one of my binders. cant decide if i like his hair forward or back.

    Thanks for commenting in my book man. I did the same thing as you, hung up the pencil for 3years or so and man I was rusty as hell when I tried again. Just keep swinging, you'll pick it up again. Working the second job is killer, I was doing that for a while and I know drawing ends up pretty low on the list doesn't it.

    If you're buddies with justin oaksford, I'm sure you'll have seen the attention to anatomy. Gotta do it man, but it doesn't have to be boring. A lot of dudes here use porn refs for their studies and it works great for them.

    On second thought that could get distracting....
