    I need to find an hour to watch that video. Tough when the weather is so good and work is so busy.

  • 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.
