    Kamber Parrk's Sketchbook Volume 2, Book III (at p. 21)

    Volume 2, Book III starts an Alternating Daily: 20 to 60 minutes of (mostly) life with a watercolor moleskine, fast contour ink drawing in Uniball 207 AND 30 to 60 minutes on newsprint with HB charcoal pencil, mostly from quality photo ref.


    Volume 2, Book II continues the same deal. But, 20 to 60 minutes for "public life," 30 to 60 for refs and masters so I can focus on more refinement, but still have fun with the public stuff. And, my cartoon stuff will fill in for the Daily on days it takes up all my art time.

    Volume 2 will be primarily figure studies continuing with HB Generals charcoal pencil and rough newsprint done inside of an hour.


    Book IV is primarily in hard, HB, Generals charcoal pencil. Time limit is longer-- 40 minutes to no more than an hour. Rotation: 2 sheets of heads; 2 sheets of figures; 1 sheet of hands; and 1 sheet of composition.

    Book III (at page 7) is primarily in black Prismacolor 935 pencil. Ballpoint will still figure from time to time. Same Canson SB, but my time limit will be 15 to 30 minutes. (Up from the 10 to 20 of the first two books).

    Book II (at page 4) is in black Bic Round Stick ballpoint and black HB Conte crayon on an 8.5 X 11 inch Canson hardbound sketchbook. Book I was in Bic Round Stic on a dime-store "college ruled" 8 X 10.5 inch notebook

    The Goal? 365 sketches by the anniversary of the date of inception! Every 100 images will equal a new "Book."

    All criticism respected and eventually responded to!

    As to resizing - You could always preview the image in windows explorer and screencap/edit in paint if you're totally without any image-altering software. Imageshack.us will resize your image for you, so you could just do that and save to your pc before uploading to CA.

    I'd suggest using a material with varied width of line too, like a pencil. Keep at it and keep drawing from life!

    Viral Marketer,

    Figured that I could use the Micosoft "picture manager" to do the job.

    Sticking with pen for this forum, using other mediums in other fora!

    Will see if I can go back and edit the original post. . .

    Hey!

    Nice starts. Your perspective and composition ain't bad for sure. If you want to check out some Loomis stuff for studies n' such, here is a great site, with scans of Loomis's book. If you're anything like me, y'can't just go out n' buy the books.

    either way, keep posting and keep drawing!

    hey there,

    it's good to see you do these rougher sketches but be careful with you lines , don't just scribble but try to think about what needs to be more important (make the line of that a bit darker) and what needs to be in the back. also try using lines that go with the form that you are drawing

    keep it up

    Hey polydrawer,

    Mea culpa! Those last two were pretty dang scratchy.

    Trying to spend only 10 to 20 minutes maximum on these-- I get really sloppy as my artificial dead-line approaches.

    Nice start! You seem to have a good understanding of perspective
    Don't worry about time limits for now. Take your time, speed will come later.

    I'd also really recommend that you get an actual sketchbook (or at least some blank paper) I seen some artists who get so comfortable drawing on lined paper that when they try to draw on blank paper they have a hard time. The lines are sort of a security blanket for them. Not a good habit to get into.

    Hey Burdie, thanks fer the visit!

    As a would be cartoonist, I've spent a fair amount of time studying D'Amelio's "Perspective Drawing Handbook." My adventures into "Triangle and T-Square Perspective" have left some residual knowledge that helps me visualize horizons and vanishing points by instinct for free-hand formats that would otherwise require a drawing board the size of a car hood.

    The lined pages can help me. But, they're not that much of a crutch. Using crappy materials helps me exorcise the "preciousness" out of my work-- I don't expect much-- just 10 to 20 minutes of quick dirty focus each day!

    If I were using "The Notebook of Hemingway," I might just be paralyzed by the desire to do something "pretty" rather than something "effective!" LOL!

    Hey aarondru77,

    After you click "Manage Attachments" the Attachment Manager can be used to browse your hard drive to locate, then upload image files directly from your computer. (Thanks, Jason Manley!)

    It won't let you post until you fill in several boxes of identidy material.

    Before posting, I've been using my Micro Soft photo manager program to size my work to around 800 X 600 pixels.

    [I'll try to, eventually(!), friend you back! I've been pretty dense so far on getting around to learning/using the more social aspects of these boards-- think I still have my person settings on "maximum anti-social-psycho-mode."]

    Anyway:

    TV top statuary.

    Haha! I love how you draw everything and anything you see... I think it's wonderful. As a growing artist myself, I am gonna try this out. Are you using Pen or Pencil?

    Hey Mr. A!

    Welcome aboard.

    I'm using a medium Bic Roundstic ball point.

    A lot of what I'm doing here is fast preliminary studies of things that might make interesting paintings or can be incorporated into the "environments" of my cartooning-- it's more art-like "note taking" than anything-- give it a try--it's fun to work free, quick and loose!

    (And that's a good excuse for the horrible images in this post! LOL!)
