^^^superbeautiful, thanks for all your tips. They're very welcomed. Can you recommend me good colour pencils? The ones I have from Faber-Castell are dreadful.

The Book 9 Heads is a great book for learning how to draw different posses and anything else you ever wanted to know.

I'm posting a quick sketch of some designs I made tonight... go ahead and be harsh, I can take it (I think) . No one has ever seen my sketches, so any comments will be appreciated!! I guess I should be using colour and ink, so I'm determined to get some watercolour markers and/or pencil crayons this weekend. So Prismacolours are the best? What about Pantone markers? Or should I use ink and watercolour instead?

I've posted these before, but anyways.



If i can give any advice especially if you're a newb to sketching people - draw thumbnails instead of trying to cover an A4 page, you will always have better control of what you are drawing. You can always scan it in and enlarge it. As you become more experienced, then try drawing larger.

Secondly, don't be too precious with your sketches. You should be able to sketch faster than your brain knows what its doing. Don't worry about making sure every line is correct.

Thirdly, if you can afford it, buy yourself a wacon tablet or equivalent. seriously, its not even the future anymore folks, its the now.

I like illustrationfriday.com and illustrationmundo I think it's called. There are tips and interviews that I have found helpful. It's not all fashion related, but it still helps.

a review for Letraset Pro Markers
from amazon.co.uk

Quote:
I truly enjoy using this promarkers and it's easy to use both for beginners and profesionals. I've actually got this promarkers from winning a contest held by letraset itself. As for myself who has never use markers for my drawings before promarkers are just the best for me to start with. I was quite afraid to use it for the first time that I would make a mistake but when I start using it I've gained confidence in no time! I had so much fun using it that I got quite addicted to it and forgets all my worries. It really gives out professional effects. Now I could fill colours to my drawings and not always the boring black and white. Even if I've not won it I would definitely buy it. Its price is also resonable for such good quality markers. I would highly recommend this for both beginners and professionals.
Any thoughts?

Latest enhancement to tFS ... an illustration tool! Link can be found on the tFS Home Page.

If you look to the left side, you will see uploading and downloading links, so you can also use your own personal designs and photos. Thought it might be of interest to many of you who like to draw and design.
