    Leighblack's sketchbook

    Hi,This is Leighblack.

    I've been reading MindCandyMan's thread for quite a long time now.It's really inspiring.

    I was going to start a sketchbook ages ago,just been procrastinating.Mostly because of fear and laziness.

    This year I finally pick up the pencils and some books and start copying some drawings.
    The books that I'm using :
    1.Gene Franks's The Art of Pencil Drawing
    2.Mark & Mary Willenbrink's Drawing for the Absolute Beginner

    Hope to make some friends here and also some supports would be nice : )

    The line drawing itself is pretty good, however I'd suggest adding darker tones to your drawings. What type of pencils are you using (HB, 2B,etc)?
    I know you want to click here. Just do it, don't be afraid!

    Thanks for the suggestion.I use H,HB,F,B,2B and 3B.
    The actual drawing has darker color,maybe I need to learn how to use the scanner in a batter way.
