    it's so simple, yet saying so much.

    reminds me a bit of that one painting... beat me... plenty grand odalisque by boucher? the pose seems very similar and i know mel ramos once painted a persiflage on it...

    Android These are really good!!
    I like that white pen you use.

    At my school no newsprint,,, unless you are in a beginner class

    At the rate that I go through drawing paper, if I did not use newsprint, I wouldant be able to afford gasoline for my car
    seriously, newsprint is great, it has a natural tone to it and it comes in great big sizes too,

    tell your teacher that I have been figure drawing for 11 years and newsprint it my professional paper of choice.

    android, i have a stupid sounding question:
    what exactly is newsprint paper? any examples where i am most likely to see some in "its natural environment"?

    sorry, that's annoying...

    Newsprint is is Probly the best paper for just about any dry
    medium... But it has acid in it , and it breaks down the paper.
    Hints why they will not lets us use it at school..

    I do not know the exact definition of it, but it is cheap and
    wonderfull to draw on!!!!

    Portfloio Peices can not be on newsprint because it will not last.

    Here is the First Charcoal Peice I ever did,,, I did it on
    "NEWSPRINT" because it was my first time doing charcoal..

    Look here
    I don't think Android would like me postin my stuff in his thread:beer: :beer:

    you bring up a good point about the acid, but hell none of us are going to last forever, paper in general is a very tempoary medium, anything worth keeping I just scan and add the original to a huge pile that is taking up an entire closet in my houre, I personaly have lost alot of respect for original, vs copy , I really dont care what an image is made with printed on or how long it lasts, I am far less patient, I care about how it hits the back of your brain when you see it for the first time, the human mind is my favorite resting place for my art work.,
