    Lovely sketches! I like your linework very much, it give a very nice feeling. :o)

    Just a quick question: when you sketch outdoors, do you eyeball everything and draw it straight
    on paper, or do you make some guidelines - mental or not - to establish the right perspective?
    I´m guessing the more you´ve done things, the quicker and better judge of the visual relationships
    you become, but it´s always been a fearsome subject this one, so thought to ask. :o)
    The key is to start doing. The rest falls into place eventually.

    Thanks! I don't generally need to draw perspective guidelines when I am looking at an object because judging the angle (or measuring it with a pencil) is much faster, and time is frequently an issue when drawing outside. Even if you are drawing a building and it is not going to move, it is likely that someone will come and park a truck in front of you. When sketching outside some accuracy must be sacrificed for speed.

    The more you practice the more you improve in judging visual relationships, but even after many years of sketching I find that I sometimes have to check angles or distances using the pencil as a measuring tool, or to draw the negative space as well as the positive. I usually sketch the object or person lightly with a pencil to ensure that I am not too far off before I begin to make permanent lines in ink.

    That´s some really helpful information, thanks for clarifying! It makes sense, entirely.
    I´ll try the pencil method and angle relationships´ observation a bit more, and hopefully it´ll
    become a healthy habit from here on. It´s so much easier to see those angles in references, but
    it´s probably exactly what you mentioned, that in real life things actually move and you get eventually
    some kind of obstacles in your visual plane. Thank you very much for the insight! :o)

    Hey vineris!
    Finally stopping by, love the line quality here, very sharp, and the (for the most part) small set of values. See you in the forums!

    Thanks a bunch! I haven't been around much lately since my laptop browser seems to choke on images, but hopefully I can get that fixed soon.

    Here are some life sketches from February and March.

    February sketch-out at the conservatory. They had a Chinese New Year exhibit with foo dog statues and bonsai and other things I didn't have the time to sketch.

    March sketch-out at the Royal Alberta Museum. They have a collection of stuffed animals that are more interesting to draw from than photos.

    And I'm working on a personal project, doing some chapter illustrations based on the book "The Girl Who Soared Above Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two". I love the Fairyland series and it has such rich visual imagery that I thought it would be fun to do an illustration for each chapter. These are the first two chapters:

    I've just finished inking the third and am working on the underdrawing for the fourth. I need to finish the thumbnails for the rest of the chapters soon because I don't think the library will let me renew the book again...

    Hey Vineris,

    As always, love the pen stuff. Especially nice to see such a great variety of line weight and style. Keep going on those illustrations for the chapter book, cool idea!
