    I totally have Scratchy Line Disease. I'm always starting something new instead of building on some promising start. I was practicing some heads and then I started drawing my table full of junk. When I saw how the table was falling over and all the junk was hanging mid-air, I thought it was very funny and probably much better than a "good drawing." Even if I did want to draw the table falling over, say as part of a scene, I'd have to clean up the scratchy-scratchy business, but since it isn't an illustration or a project I'm not going to do anything with it.

    Plus, really I don't draw that well and I honestly believe if I don't draw really well by now, chances are I don't have the dedication it that takes to make truly great drawings.

    Scratchy lines tend to come from a lack of confidence and practice. The more practice you put in the lines should become more fluid naturally as your confidence builds. Don't be hard on yourself, just keep trying to get better, and in time you will without a doubt. There is no magic secret, it is all about time invested. Get motivated and draw draw draw

    Regarding the sketchy lines, I would recommend practice in a form of drawing parallel lines, circles, ellipses and alike. Drawing is like playing an instrument, you just have to practice on daily bases. Before you know it, your lines will be smooth as silk.

    You are all very encouraging! I drew a picture for this a couple weeks ago, intending to color it in, so I wanted to do that before I did anything else. I have so much unfinished. But it's still unfinished because I'd like to do it over. I messed up some of the colored pencil area and used some white out and acrylic to make it look the way I wanted. I think the areas of light and shade are a little questionable. and I'm sure my values are off as well. I think the composition is okay. And then I scanned it in and gave it a background in photoshop.Name:  BabyToys2014.jpg

    The areas of white over the dog's eye and on his paws are supposed to be colored -- the colored pencil would not cover the white out. I used ink in the darkest areas. The flat white areas on the lion toy were done in phtoshop. It wasn't supposed to be a complicated piece.....

    People In Motion

    My people walking around, waiting for the bus and just wandering aimlessly don't look a bit like the Old Masters. It's the modern world, 2014. They are too fat, too thin, wearing enormous headphones, a long list of fashion don'ts and carrying a yoga mat. These were done sitting at an outdoor cafe, some of them were in one position for five minutes or more, most I only caught several seconds worth of quick glances and several were constructed from memory with only a few quick lines to go by.

    RFalcone/SketchbookMy objective for this drawing was to practice getting my proportions right in a reasonable amount of time and I think in that, it has succeeded. Not perfectly, but I'm happy with the results and moving on from this I feel more confident.

    I must be hitting a wrong button somewhere, because I didn't want to post the picture twice. I find this website somewhat slow.
