im trying out something here. well this is going to be my step by step in how i work. its pretty simple really, i just got me a digi cam so mine as well use them right... well to start off. was thinking of posting my tools of the trade... :)

tah dahhh!...well to buy a tool box is cheaper than to get one of those "Art Boxes." i got this in Home Depot for less than 20 i think and compare to Michaels its alot expenisve

my watercolor set. bought it about two years ago but still its in its plastic, never use them. been awhile since i did some water color. maybe i'll post some old watercolor pieces i have. now this is a ten year old water color set.... yes really ten years old. i still have them

yeah i know the first batch of post nobody really cares :) thats ok i know theres one out there thats interested... :ugh:

this is more like my thing. well first my pens.... at the moment i was kinda cleaning them... its a b---ch to clean this kind of pens ones the ink gets dry
i only use one or two pens from here. i use the cheap ones Pilot and Micron pens



EDIT: anybody know Robert Crumb around here... these pens are his favorite... *i don't know why, i had to add that just came to me* rented this DVD documentary about R. Crumb, pretty interesting. you guys should check it out.

A tool box is actually a good idea. I need somewhere to put all my pencils and brushes.

lol I'm gonna kick pkbots ass...or not :/ lol
I'd like to know how you decide whether or not to have big areas black I tend to go over the top I reckon when I try and ink stuffs... it just a case of getting used to it until your judgement gets better or is there some trick to it?

im not really good at shades and shadows i guess i know the basics a little bit and when filling out large black areas i just go along with it no tricks really. well you have to know where the light source first... for instance above the light source is to the uppe leftside and little light on the right. for the leg and arm i left no shading cus if i where to color it that area would be i guess a foggy shade or kinda dusty....

Thats what I needed to know lol I guess it's best to imagine yourself colouring it then huh? :)

Whoa.... a toolbox full of art tools... Good improvising, just wondering, what if you brought the wrong tool box to draw?

Anyways... nice tutorial
