I dont keep track of the number of pages I go through. But I go through probably close to a page a day. Sometimes 2 pages and sometimes only one little sketch when Im super tired.
I just finished my first sketchbook, took me months. I didnt even draw everyday at the beginning of the sketchbook, but halfway through decided to start drawing everyday and now Im almost through my second sketchbook. its taken me months still though! idk how people can fill a sketchbook in one month! thats like 300 drawings or more like wtf!?
I vary so much it's not even funny. I used to doodle every day, without fail, getting 20-30+ pics done a week, with five or six coloured drawings. Recently I don't even like my drawing style, especially when drawing human/humanoid characters. I've gone for months without even doodling in the past couple of years. Right now I've managed to draw about seven pictures in two weeks that I feel proud enough to upload the lineart of. Just dreading colouring them, because it's not one of my strong points, lol. I don't take too long with my drawings, but I have nobody to appreciate them really, so motivation is my drawback.
Thanks, that's good advice It would be nice if people liked my art more, but I don't have many creative buddies to pick out the good and bad points of my work, so it's very hard to improve, which gets me down. I'm my own harshest critic, lol. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. Just got to keep working at it, I suppose
it depends on how i feel collectively during the week. honestly some weeks if i'm feeling happy i'll doodle a lot, but if i'm inspired i'll work on the same thing for quite a while. if i'm sad i'll try to express it and i'll draw more, but if i'm blocked i won't draw at all. it really depends.
1-3 now that school's in session, before that Idek maybe like 5-15, I don't always fill the entire page, sometimes one bigger sketch predominates the page (es sometimes too) or 1-2 smaller ones because that page was beginning to urk me. I have 2 sketchbooks (1 has so few pages left I'ma miss it sobs), one is reallybig and one is reallysmall, but both were doodled in pretty equally
I tend to sketch reallysmall a lot, most of my sketches are pretty tiny so a bunch fit on a page. I really really need to start getting bigger though, so I may learn more things and junk because a lot of detail is lost when you translate it into reallytiny sketches as I. The huge ones I've done I have learned a ton form. Ahaha multiple books yess~~~Multiple books are a pain though when you think somethings in one and its in another and you can't find the the other D:< Although I find it helpful because one is much smaller, so I can carry it around and sketch unsuspecting people less conspicuously >
A decent portion of my small sketchbook are tiny sketches of unsuspecting bystanders lol
I would recommend getting a smaller one as well, I have one about that size too and yeah C O N S P I C U O U S A R T I S T I S S K E T C H I N G Y O O O O O U~~~~ usually results in the unwitting subjects moving or leaving (heruarughh) The smaller variant fits easily on the table, in your lap and blends casually in while you may easily disguise your glancings up and sketching as spacing out and writing, inconspicuously! The best part when I sketch people though is when you can tell someone is looking over your shoulder and then tries REALLY HARD not to get in your line of sight
Oh my deer That's honestly my worst nightmare, someone getting frustrated and angry that I was practicing anatomy by using them as a reference or their dog or cat or komodo dragon on a leash or something. That's why I take as many measures as possible to avoid such an issue by using a smaller sketchbook and activating my acting skills.
I'm limiting myself to about 10 pages a week right now. I usually do about 3-4 in my IWB of studies, character refs, etc. and then a bunch in my sketchbook. The IWB is like a jacked-up sketchbook that you have to fill with lots of information about your art and style. It's exhausting, but I'm worried that I'm going through too much too fast. I need at least 150 by the end of senior year and my two sketchbooks are about 250 pages or so, but I wasn't planning on buying another one. I might be just worrying too much, but I'm just rolling ahead without much solidity.
I talked to Mr. Black and he said go wild. But I'm just terrified that I won't be enough. That, despite all the work and it only being three weeks in, I won't leave my mark. I talked to him and he said there's no way I'll get below a five, but I can't see myself meeting my goals when I'm against all this: blogs.ibo.org/gallery/
There are so many kids out there who get fives but are way better than me, and they all have style and a solid theme and I'm just overwhelmed by everything. It's insane.
Me too, but most of my digital pieces start out as pen or pencil in my sketchbooks. Then I usually resketch them digitally to understand my idea better or play with composition, then I start teh final... which I go back and forth between digital and traditional... Most of my final works are digital. : p
