It was easy to find the time to paint or draw in school. There was a deadline, and if I didn't meet it, I got a bad grade.


I'd wait until the kids went to sleep and drink coffee, and burn the midnight oil.
I work in a shower door plant, so sleep deprivation is risky.

I'm running the saw again, and I still have all of my fingers, so everything seems to be working out ok.

There are plenty of canvases that I have started, so maybe it's time to brew some coffee.

Your work looks really great! I love your drawings. If you want, can you give me some advise for my drawings to make them look better...?
tommyhawk13 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011
Well thanks!
The best advise I could possibly give is keep drawing, and work from general to specific.

Those drawings in my gallery are fairly large, and they're done with vine charcoal. You can be off in proportion in a large drawing, and it won't be as noticable as a smaller one.
The vine charcoal goes on really easy, and you can sharpen it to a point with sandpaper.

I start with a quick & messy gesture drawing, concentrating on the movement of the figure first, then iron out proportions. I block in the shadows, then refine the contours, and add the details last.
