    Universal Inhabitant's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone!

    I'm a newbie artist and started getting "serious" about learning/practicing art a little over a year ago. During that time of getting "serious" about it I had done very little work.
    I was on and off (mostly off) and now I am looking to start anew. I am self teaching throughout the whole process. So I plan to add new stuff to my work load once I become at ease with
    the current work load and so on and so forth until I am unable to add anything else. I should hopefully post something new on a regular basis if all goes well.

    Hopefully this will be a good new start!

    I am going to start off by drawing at least one page of stuff a day that needs to consist of at least 1 drawing of a still life and/or a photo image. I mainly want to do digital art, but from what I hear it's best to start off with traditional media at first.
    So here's a charcoal drawing of a cardboard box cushion thingy to start it off.

    Wanted to see how much I could do within a certain timespan. At first I set it to 5 minutes but only got half the contour done so I bumped it up another 5 minutes to draw the car.

    From your sketches it's clear that you have a good eye for detailing.

    I recommend drawing through your objects, and really nailing those forms and how they exist in 3D space.
    A good habit is to draw the construction lines and break down the objects into their basic geometries, and with your detailing, they will really come to life.

    I also dig your pencil-work

    Trying to mess around with my scanners settings to find what works best. It doesn't seem to pick up very faint marks on the paper.

    I think I got the scanner to pick up more of the lighter values so that's good. Some quick sketches and a crab.
