I was hoping you guys would pardon another question from me, seeing as I've been asking a lot lately.
In hindsight it is pretty obvious, but this has only become apparent to me now that I'm drawing on larger paper. I draw on a flat table and because of the distortion all my figures take on a triangular shape where they get smaller the further they go away from me on the paper.
I was thinking about getting a tabletop easel to have the paper at a more vertical angle to eliminate the distortion, but I'm not sure if this would be a suitable solution for my problem.
Would I be wasting my time and money on one? I'd be intending to use it just for the drawing stage, but I like to produce as tight a drawing as I can before painting with rulers and geometrical templates if needs be.
My one experience with a studio easel several years ago was unpleasant as it caused me pain in the back and shoulder and I found it very hard to draw accurately.
