    my moleskine highlights

    Figured I may as well get in on this sketchbook thing, though the only one I really keep regularly is my pocket moleskine. All drawings are 9x14cm with pen. These start in early November 05 and I've kept at it pretty regular since then. I tried posting this unabridged but it seems the forums don't like all those images packed into one place

    for the most part they are good and easy to look at. The strange plant, fishhound, and the one to the left of the fishhound are not very clear though

    Thesre are really good. So many people say: "dont use outlines, dont use outlines", but they never say what to do instead. So it's interesting to see some work that doesn't seem to rely on outlines. It reminds me a bit of Alan Lee's Lord of the Rings sketchbook.

    Very good sketches. They are of the kind that makes me want to pull up my own sketchbook and draw faces rapidly and roughly. It is good practice.
    You show a wide selection of angles and faces. Great work!

    interesting approach, its always nice to see a tonal approach to pen sketching.. facial proportions are a little off sometimes but you probably know that...

    thanks all. This book is what I keep in my jacket pocket and sketch in while I'm waiting for food at the diner and stuff like that. I really recomend anybody try doing some pen only sketches if you never have because, though the results may be imperfect (as you can see above), there are alot of things to learn by it.

    that should read "fish head", pardon my scrawl

    I really like your pen sketches; my favorites are the 3rd row, 1st one and the 6th row, 3rd one. Those two just jumped out at me. Sketching in pen is something I do all the time for better or worse and I find it rewarding in many ways, the imperfections sometimes just add to it in a way.

    I like the fish head, after I figured out what it was, cool way to spend the time in the diner.
    I think I'll try it, good to have stumbled upon this thread

    These are great! I love how you describe form in this way. I can certainly see the value of doing pen drawings such as these. A pleasure to look at.

    you're doing what you do pretty well. Your second batch is much better proportion wise than the first, you're improving.

    That description of the moleskine on the site was gold. I want to know who said that quote "Losing my passport was the least of my worries, I was worried about losing my notebook" I love my sketchbook as much anyone else, but really...

    Dave--

    Update your sketchbook. More brilliance is needed.

    That is all.
