Well I have officially burned through another Moleskin sketchbook. And as i was going to post the last page in my latest book i found my first moleskin and thought you might want to see the progress I have made.
The top image is the first page in my first book when i decided to start taking location sketching seriously and realized what it had to offer. This was a little shy of a year ago when i started. The bottom image is literally the last page in my latest sketchbook which I just finished last week.
I can see a world of difference. In the beginning it was all about speed and making the drawing look like the person. Now Im more focused on volume, tone, color and trying to push my designs. Not only has it helped my technical and fundamental drawing but i have increased in speed and it really gives you a chance to explore and be creative.
So if you haven't tried it, I would highly recommend it. And if any of you ever want to get together and sketch let me know. I'm always down!
Off to the stress and fear of starting a new sketchbook! This one is blue by the way and not a moleskin so it might suck.
