    How many sketchbooks have you filled up?

    Im just wondering how many you guys have filled up. Puddnhead has filled up over 60 I think. I think I heard lung say he's filled up 18 (could be wrong though). Even though I'm ashamed to say it, I have only completed one. I've had many where, I doodle in, but never complete. So for the record one, Im working on two.

    So how many?Oh and btw, how many years have you been drawing/painting in them?

    I wonder how many Jason, Android, Prom, and el coro have filled up?

    whew... lord only knows ...
    kinda stopped keeping track once I started using marker paper, print paper, and napkins ...

    certainly over 30, ... but I do have a stack of stray papers that came in at about 20 lbs.

    wonder how many trees I've defiled...

    filling 18? thats believable. hmm myself i have filled 2 1/2. 1st one has 70 pages 2nd has 100 and the one im working on now has 200ish. eee that seems very little imo but for a while i took a break from my sketchbook and was drawing on looseleaf. mmm i have been drawing for 8 months in sketchbooks and seriously for probably 4 months. it shows too, i look back at my first sketchings from before and they were a lot of ideas that couldnt be put out without correct anatomy. well enough jabbering...

    btw what does it mean when ppl say a5 and a4 size sketchbooks? i was always lost on that one. also, when you guys use soft pencils like 6b and so on in your sketchbook, doesnt it get smudge around? thanks.

    Hi Lioness,

    A4 and A5 are european standards. In fact they are named DIN A4 (DIN=Deutsche Industrienorm = German industrial norm).
    A4 = 29,7 cm x 21 cm = 11,7 in x 8,3 in
    A5 (half the size) = 21 cm x 14,85 cm = 8,3 in x 5,8 in

    All sizes are based on the square meter (A0 = 118,8 cm x 84 cm) and some mathematics I can´t translate .

    Fipse

    And for the soft pencils take simple hairspray to fix it

    <Insert witty remark here>

    Ummm, never ever use hairspray: it smells awful and you never get the protection of a real fixative spray.

    How many sketchbooks have I filled up? Zero. Looks as if I am the abnormal one here. I didn't use sketchbooks. I find myself using canvas instead.

    I'd say since I hit grade 9, I've filled almost 20. I'm in grade 12 now, long long way to go =)
