  • Illustrating Resources

    I'm not a good illustrator - quite frankly, I suck at it!

    I'm looking for some resources to help with my drawing/illustrating skills.

    I'm not referring to the Adobe software program, rather, I'm looking for resources to help improve my drawing by hand skills.

    Create many still lifes and go "wild".

    pencil, charcoal, whatever your heart desires.

    Within the last year I think I have done around 20-30 still lifes....they are so great.

    //end sarcasm,lol

    There really arn't any "usefull" books in my opinion.

    Through all my drawing class's for prequiets for illustration I never set a hand on a book... besides for life drawing- cause that can somewhat become "technical".

    Drawing is all about spatial relationships... and to better understand those spatial relationships it takes practice... not a book.

          Are they something you are trying to right click?
          That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

          Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

          Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
          I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
