Thank you! But I think the colours used for those lamas are too dark, especially the one in the middle, they look really cute in real!

Re: Sketchbook Thread

A quick drawing in the sketchbook today. I haven't drawn in a very long time. (I've been busy painting.) But you all have been inspiring me, so today I picked up the pencils. And it felt mighty good! This has been on my to-try list for quite some time. My son has hypoplastic left heart, which means he was born with no left ventricle. His heart looks nothing like this, but the anatomy of the heart has been a fascination since he was born 25 years ago.

Re: Sketchbook Thread

Hello, I like your sketch and I think that probably to get a little darker in the deep shadows and a little lighter on the high lights would be good, also a bit more color variations could make it look more vivid, as in the photo. I am delighted with the very good drawing! :-)

Hello, I want to share my sketch of today after many many years without doing anything with CP, and then I never did much. Today I got some Derwent Coloursoft, added to some Derwent Drawing CP and some inktense. I feel I needed to do some quick sketch and I feel fine within the circumstances and really eager to keep trying. This time I used a picture of a model and draw on a Mina Gray inexpensive board-paper. I will appreciate comments! Thanks in advance.

Thanks! I really enjoyed doing him. I want to do a larger one, with a background. #todolist

Re: Sketchbook Thread

I cut this guy out and put him on a background I did with watercolor pencils. He became a baby shower gift for an ocean themed nursery. (Excuse my reflection in the glass. )

Re: Sketchbook Thread

Happy Easter!
Please help on a scetch stage. Should there be semi-circles, or semi-elipses?

PS: anyone knows, are images from colourpalettes are copywrited or not?

Re: Sketchbook Thread

The top of your mug needs to be more elliptical. I don't know about the copyright.

Re: Sketchbook Thread

As to using a photo without permission, my understanding is you can create practice pieces/art/etc., but you cannot even give those pieces away. Forget about selling them. You will have them hanging on your wall or hiding in your closet for life. Though I do sometimes display them on this site (is this ok?).

Back to sketches. I've done a lot of pencil sketches, but my color efforts felt like I using colored nails with underwhelming results. Happened upon this forum one day and realized it was the cheap pencils I had used. So I borrowed my gf's prismacolor pencils and produced this sketch in a 6x8 sketchbook. From a Heinz-Maier high speed water drop photo. I may be too entrenched in oil painting right now, but now I know I have another tool to play with.

I am a retired drafter. Whenever I would see someone make mistakes in drawing round objects in isometric or perspective view, I would quick draw that little cube with ellipses as a visual aid.

Re: Sketchbook Thread

When it comes to using the photography of other photographers (pictures you haven't taken yourself), you should treat it the same way you would copying someone else's art. For learning purposes only. Not for sale, for publication, or advertisement.

It's always best to either take your own reference photos, get reference photos from websites set up for artists to use, or to ask permission first.

By the way, anything you post online anywhere (yes, even here) is considered publishing it. So any images you post here could be seen as an infringement of copyright if the photographer happened to find it.

That's one reason I always seek permission from the photographer first. Most of the time, they're more than willing to give permission.

Here's two I'm quite pleased with. Any advice gratefully received.





Can't believe you are new in drawing and painting. Those are so beautiful
