Brown Paper Drawing
Some photo reference used from faestock
The brown paper one is simply epic.
I bet its a lot easier once you've given up.
No one ever cared about me before. And I just tried to blow it off, you know. But it was still pretty rough. I used to think there was no place in this world for me. But...but I... still found friends. I kept at it and didnt give up, and good things happened. When you give up, you dreams and everything else...THERE GONE!

Regarding your moleskins or more a general question..
I see a lot of people coloring them (most likely later on) but i was curious if you knew of any mediums that were big no no's for moleskins...for some reason I want to say they were using possibly watercolor? or acrylic...would that even be possible? I'll ask a few others but I was curious if you had seen anyone around doing something in those regards.
Obviously - awesome work. Will be coming back for more ..so i hope =).
Keep-a posting. And thanks for being here! x27 kudos. ^^

Some of your life drawings remind me of my own in a strange way. Maybe its because people who arent looking directly at you fidget less, hu?
I like that painting, its very cold, but energetic. I thick you should try the same approach a couple times. If you liked the results that is.
When the moleskin paper gets wet it tends to lose a bit of its smoothness and starts to feel somewhat fuzzy to touch. I don't think you could go in with multiple washes of water... the paper would get fuzzy and probably tear through eventually. The A4 size moleskins have slightly thinner paper than the regular "large" size. The size that I most see them in stores is half the size of A4... I forget what designation that is... but its paper is a little thicker and more card-like.
Acrylic and guache seems to do 'okay' on it, but it's not the ideal surface. I usually use pens, graphite, or markers. If you use guache or acrylic just don't use a lot of water.
I hope that helped,
Nonobot, thanks for the comment. Yeah, I seem to be able to relax more drawing in public if the person is at an angle that they're unlikely to look up at me, etc. hehe.
I'm actually working on painting similar to that style right now we'll see how it turns out. I'll post it up when it's further along.
nice style keep it up! i love your drawings from life.
I like the pictures here! Keep on posting and drawing!
