    Wow! nice sketchbook, I like playing with watercolor/gouache paint but it's hard and kinda unforgiving.

    @Monkabit, playing is the word, while I keep struggling with gouache at every single subject, with watercolor is like I'm getting worst with the time, at least with fast paintings. Quite frustrating mediums.

    Some random stuff I've done, two of them from life, guess which ones :-)

    I've been drawing with soluble graphite, just to see what happen. Is hard to get something good from it, because other than drawing in the traditional way, you may kill values and linework using water over it.

    The script wasn't really mine, it was for a contest and did the comic with a friend, actually, we both hate it I've enjoyed trying to draw something different anyway.

    Whoa...things have changed since my last time here...

    Anyway, here I am posting some stuff again. I did some abstract painting, not the kind of material you see around here, and not the kind of work I do either, but anyway.

    It's acrylic on rough paper, in case someone wonder about it.

    Great line and crosshatch works there. Some of them do have a really cool feeling. Nice colors too, even if some feels less saturated than others - which tends to make them look sometimes a bit dull. A bit damaged during the scanning process, maybe ?

    Well, now that you say so, the acrylic and gouache ones may have that issue, mixing thin colors with white could cause that problem, and of course they don't look exactly like the originals.

    Thanks for taking a look McDuff!

    Lemon obsession.

    Trying some random color pencils and basic shapes, somehow I end drawing lemons more often than not...

    Most of them are between the study and the sketch, guess I may try to go faster or get more detail instead. I like the pencils, you can try many things with them, here I'm mostly cross hatching.

    Hi Jean, nice post. The colours are quite nice actually - I specially dig the way you played with the shadowy parts - and your lines are making it a whole thing. You maybe found something interesting here.

    Hiya McDuff! I'm actually quite limited here on color selection, I'm using a small "palette" of hard color pencils, but I'm gonna get a set of prismas in about two days.

    I'm trying to preserve the lines of my B&N sketchbooks, but getting the right shading and tones at the same time it's indeed an interesting challenge and some colors can't cover well what you've done with others.

    Also, its hard to get good references/tutorials, seems like an underrated media, and most people good with it are just going for photo realism...

    @Ujjalloh, thanks!

    Practicing some simple objects, I really need to simplify some more, I always end up overdoing things:
