    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.

    I think this is a priceless advice!
    I do agrree that you have to carefully make lines, even if you do it fast- be more careful and accurate))))
    make contrasts

    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!

    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!)

    Nice studies so far! I would also suggest switching to blank paper, even though you say nice paper would make you want to draw something more "pretty".. I'm sure there are crappy blank paper pads out there.. you could always try printer paper, that's a devil to draw on. Or letter paper! XD
    Apart from that, keep up the practice, maybe go for more detail in some places!

    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.

    Hi there Aila!

    Nope! Gonna stick with the lined notebook and torture all my viewers! (At least until this notebook runs out. . .)

    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.
