The Daily Sketch Thread
Hey everyone! Some of you 'old-timers' will remember a little thread
that we had going where anyone could post their artwork/drawing/sketches.
In the end, it evolved into a fantastic channel for members to post sketches
for feedback, instruction and critique for daily sketches.

So the challenge to you is to sketch at least one thing per day.
If it comes out to your liking, then scan it and share it.
You'll find that the challenge and support will encourage you to
grow as an artist within 'traditional' mediums, and that in turn will
cascade into your CG work and improve your skills in the digital realm as well.

Alright! So whaddaya waitin' for? Grab a pad and a pencil and post 'em! :crazy:

OK, I'll start - today's sketch is a pen and ink rendering of a
bat-creature with some sort of jester hat on. :wtf:

I threw out the original pencil sketch, so this is the vellum trace.
I like to use Sakura fine line pens, .01 or .005 for really fine work.

Thats awesome! So what do you do for your free time? lol

Gordon Robb 6th Dec 2007 12:03 PM

Awesome work Woods, looks like this thread is off to a good start.

I probably wont post every sketch/day, but heres some heads and a lil sketched I liked...

nemo 6th Dec 2007 01:37 PM

What a great idea. If that's a "sketch" Woody, I can't wait to see what a full-blown drawing looks like! Neat stuff so far.

Woody 6th Dec 2007 02:57 PM


NICE Sletchvalk! Those are great.

Gordon Robb 6th Dec 2007 03:51 PM

OK, good news and bad news.

Found my intuos pen :)

Lost my inspiration :(

Over the weekend for sure.

Woody 6th Dec 2007 04:08 PM

ROFL! I totally understand Gordon - been a long week here too buddy. ;)

A lil sketch for today...

Woody 9th Dec 2007 08:26 PM

Love the loose feel of the linework in your sketches Slechtvalk.
I'll try and be sure to post something tomorrow - haven't had time this weekend for anything artistic. :mad:

OK, first dip of toe back in the sketch pool.

Recognise her anyone?

Woody 10th Dec 2007 06:54 PM

I do recognize her, but I'm blanking on a name. :wtf:

Thanks woody,
Gordon Robb... Great sketch, I have no idea who it is :confused:.

Here is my sketch #1 for today:

Gordon Robb 13th Dec 2007 11:53 AM

Cheers guys, sorry forgot to come back to this. It's meant to be America Ferrera, in her not so Ugly Betty guise..

I like everything I see in this thread, makes me wish I had more time to sit down with a pencil and paper:)

Gordon Robb 13th Dec 2007 05:48 PM


Woody 13th Dec 2007 05:52 PM

Oh, it's gettin' better. I'll be sure to post the completed piece for you guys. ;)

Poor doggie..... :( ;)

Woody 13th Dec 2007 08:04 PM

He was a sweet pup. Never understood why people cry at the end though...

Just found this thread; not a lot of participation yet.

Get off ur asses already!

[edit]Err, so what's the format? Woody leads with a theme and we follow?[/edit]

Gordon Robb 23rd Dec 2007 05:05 AM

It's been a free-for-all so far. Just post what you're sketching is all.

Yup the theme is your daily sketches, as motivation to step away from the computer
or 3D for a minute and work on the drawing skills.

As promised, here's how my custom letter style
experiment came out, all vector objects! :D
