    Kondors Sketchpad diaries!

    hello everyone, well i found these forums a couple of days ago and i've been amazed at how much and how fast these people with the daily sketchbooks improve, so i thought i'd start my own and get more help with my drawings, so anyway im 16 years old and i've been drawing seriously-ish for the past 2 months or so, anyway heres some pages from the past couple of days or so.

    i was wondering if anyone had any tips on scanning pages whoch are too big to fit in a scanner i tried to piece them together but i dont know how??

    Off to a great start kondor!

    THanks for yr post in the old scrawl-tome!

    Most folks have a scanner that is large enough to accomodate an 8.5 x 11" or metric A4 size sheet of paper. Piecing things together with photoshop isn't really worth the (in my humble opinion) time it takes to do, unless the piece is something that you are going to build up to a finished piece, or need to archive for whatever reason. If it's possible, get a book that is slightly smaller than yr scanner bed, so that all you have to do is plop that b**** down and hit the scan button. presto! Gratis! Other than that, carefully taken digital photos can at least record what an image's overall gist is; though the distortion can be problematic.

    You might check YR school to see if they have a larger scanner in the library.

    Keep posting, ok?!

    Regards,

    The Gugg

    a tip is to do potraits, its fun and it helps, but do it at the same time your watching on and of, of a picture with a skull on it.

    you are hard to get a grip of, post more s we can see what to improve... it seems that you should just keep on drawing and studying life, analyzing shapes and shadows, how they make shapes turn in or out

    keep on drawing and post post post
