    Detail's tough with the quick rough sketch mode. For me, it takes about a half-hour to produce a reasonably good "figure" without any real background: about 15 minutes of drawing and restating/correcting, then about 15 minutes of rendering and tweaking values. (Given an hour and a half of focus, I can start to produce things that start to take on a professional gloss).

    Here, I'm trying to set multiple figures into some sort of composition (usually) and rough in some sort of indication of an "environment" within about 20 minutes-- detail kinda falls by the wayside!

    Part of my evil plan: by overloading my brain with these 10 to 20 minute dailys, I hope to get faster in "life drawing," where, for my source, the poses generally only last 20 or 25 minutes at the longest.
    Ah, I see
    Well I'll be following your SB, it'll be interesting to see how you progress in this way The last leg anatomy study looks good!

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Hey Aila, thanks for stopping back!

    Progress, I think, will be slow! To the extent that most of these will be multiple figures anchored in some sort of environment, I'll probably get a little tighter, a little more detailed, over the next couple months of (near) daily sketches.

    The leg study harkens back to a lot of the more detailed anatomy stuff I was doing over on Michael Mentler's tsofa.com. It's really the type of thing I'm trying to get away from to force myself to think about "making pictures"-- complete works of art, as opposed to just drawing a figure or item that's floating in a vacuum.

    But, anyway, you should check out Mentler's site http://tsofa.com --it's a somewhat different vibe than CA!

    Readers in Starbucks. (My victims left 8 minutes into this, just spent a few more minutes doing some of the usual "rendering-lite.")

    interesting work thanks for posting, i think it would be a healthy thing to study some composition and really work on putting marks on the page exactly where you want them

    Gesture and keeping things loose for longer should help immensely

    keep it coming

    :Edit

    Your argument for Lined paper is pretty bad

    if cost is an issue pick up some newsprint

    also charcoal would be a nice change from the pen try to draw with your whole arm not just your wrist

    Hey Zorcron, thanks for stoppin' by!

    Composition is pretty much catch as catch can! (Lucky if I can half apply the "rule of thirds.")

    That and intentional marks are greatly affected by subjects that just get up and leave! LOL!

    Re gesture: with ballpoint, there's frequently a compromise/choice between looseness and accuracy due to the inability to erase.

    My lined paper: everybody pretty much seems to hate it! This book, however, may well evlove into an ink wash or watercolor book (on better paper) over time.

    [A lot of the rendering acutally is from the shoulder/elbow with a "match strike" type of motion.]
