I haven't picked up a pencil and drawn properly since I was about 16, and the other day I suddenly had this burning desire to start again. I just started drawing away with a cheap pencil and it was pretty bad, but reading random articles online has woken up a few of the old skills. I've been drawing random stuff for a couple of weeks now, my main goal is just trying to extrapolate real, three dimensional structure from things, and to get proportions right. Most things I do are horribly two-dimensional. Want to get a tablet at some point and really go wild but for now, I guess draw, draw draw
Any tips/links on the following would be appreciated:
* Taking good camera shots of sketches
* What kind of pencils / tools I should need!
Here's a better thumbnail and then my first three sketches
