    Therapeutic Dumping Ground

    Hello, hello, hello!

    My name is Benji, I live on the east coast in the U.S., and I've decided to try and get back into this whole "art" thing. I was on here quite a while ago, but I remember neither my username, nor the email with which I registered. So, I figured it was time to make a new account and a new thread, which will (hopefully) keep me accountable and pushing myself to draw and paint more. My goal is to work off the rust, so to speak, as I work getting used to my supplies again. Anyone have a suggestion on a relatively inexpensive tablet, so I can do some digital painting again?

    In the meantime, this week I have some sketches based off of Bridgeman's book Bridgeman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life, and some stuff from life and photographs. It's been very nice to have something to follow as I get back into the swing of things, although some of the sketches turned out much lighter than anticipated when I scanned them. I have an old, old painting back in the works, but it was too big for our tiny little scanner. Hopefully I'll have a photograph next week.

    Cheers.

    Cool sketches! I like the use of crayons, if I'm right -- could be a thick pencil. Welcome back to CA.org.

    @SitPent, Thanks for the encouragement!

    @Vulgar', It was actually rather thick pencil! I do have some crayons somewhere, and I'll probably try them again sometime soon!

    Anyways...... Another week, another set of sketches! There are also some older ones in here from July that I had completely forgotten.

    Three weeks down, so many more to go! I actually got photoshop working on my laptop again, so I can finally resize the images to be a little less........... massive.

    Hopefully I'll be able to find some time to do some digital painting during the upcoming long weekend.

    Cheers!

    Happy Labor Day to my fellow Americans! To everyone else, happy Monday.

    Another week, and another set of sketches. I wish I had more time to devote to drawing, now that I've shaken off a bit of the rust.
