    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.
