    Versatility

    I've called this sketchbook thread "Versatility" because that's my ultimate goal: to be able to draw anything and everything no matter what medium. My background is traditional art, particularly line work in pencil and ink, and I see great challenges in digital drawing and painting so that's what medium I would like to develop.

    I hope to share each and every step of my creative journey with this wonderful and inspiring community.

    I welcome all comments and critiques. Newest work is always on the last page and I try to update regularly.

    Cheers, Dave

    haha, very nice still life study there, i see you said you have a trad. background, i can also see that your using hatching as shading, not that its a bad thing,. its a technique, but you could increase the brush size and paint in the values. but great work, keep doing it and the more the better,

    Thanks anime-master-96. Hatching is very much my preferred style and I hope that I'll learn new techniques as I progress!

    I've changed OP again. Here's the landscape and fan study.

    Nice study, I'd recommend using a bigger brush when possible, it'll lend a more fluid look to the image.

    Thanks Punkhead will bear it in mind. I'm doing a bit of anatomy to wrap up for today, and who better to draw than Arnie?!

    Thanks The fan ones took considerable time because I was aiming for accuracy, whereas the others were relatively quick, maybe 30-45 mins each.

    Been a bit distracted the last week or so (some DIY had to be done), but I got back into PS yesterday to try out some new techniques. Very steep learning curve but I'm enjoying it.
