    NYC's Subway Sketch Group - (feb. 2006 Subway update)

    Inspired by Digi, goldenavatar and myself are starting our own subway sketch group in NYC. As a precursor to the main event (which should be happening the weekend of March 26-27th) I scanned in some pages of my sketchbook that i take with me for those long rides on the subway. Enjoy.

    love em, man. great vitality to em. you took classes w/ george pratt, right? I had the fortune of having him for a few semesters here, totally changed the way I drew.

    a crit, or suggestion I guess, for your sketches- try incorporating the environment of the subjects, I think the feeling of the subway would come across really well this way. just a suggestion, though. hope to see some more!

    Ya dude, i hate backgrounds. My major weakness. I dont really get to the backgrounds cause I usualy don't have a lot of time to get to them. Becasue i use a brush pen and the subways are so damn shaky a lot of time is wasted trying to control the line. I had an awesome caligraphy pen do this kind of stuff but dumbass me broke it.

    This recent bunch has a hint of background in them.

    03-27-2005 - 1st Subway Sketch Meeting

    Well we said we'd do it and we did. Turn out was low. Myself, GoldenAvatar, and Winjer with a friend. We ended up taking the R into Brooklyn and back. Let's hope more people will show up next week.

    I lost track of time and where i was and got a ton of sketches done.

    These first two was Waiting around outside Starbucks, drawing the Falun Gong demonstrators:

    had to go to pencil because the train is to damn shaky for a brush pen. This was actualy a HB Graphite Stick.

    Not known for my being particularly fast, here's what I did last in my sketchbook at the meet. Sadly, I couldn't goto the drawing class at BCC because of the weather. Sorry, but these are links to my DA gallery.
