    WAX CRAYONS!!? Plenty of people know how to work wax crayons in anger but if you read THE RULES you’ll see that only ink is allowed.

    Relax Jamjim, you can borrow my crayons if you like.

    You draw in ink and colour in with what you like :)… up to you.

    No I’m pretty sure the rules of this highly organised and professional competition prohibit crayons. And thank you but I have my own crayons.

    Actually they are my daughter’s disney princess crayons but still. I have them. I have access to crayons.

    Professional competition Lol.

    You should try wax crayons…they are quite liberating ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wax crayons lead to colouring pencils. Colouring pencils lead to acrylics. Acrylics lead to airbrushing and airbrushing leads to photoshop.

    I can spy tattieshop brushes and masks a mile away..

    So can I, it used to be my job. I, however, donโ€™t give a shit what jimjam uses to create his artworks…
    David Hockney uses an iPad to create his works these days, and if itโ€™s good enough for one of the foremost British artists of the 20th century…

    The was archer was sketched at Druids Field Archers. The subject even reckons his unusual grip have been caputured. I was quite pleased with that final drawing.

    Skeletor is a target face as well. At least my A4 drawing will not be shot out ๐Ÿ™‚

    There should be rules for posting things on the internet.

    2 issues…

    1. Why wasn’t I made aware of this prior to the start of October?
    2. Why have I just spent ยฃ40 on pens I don’t need and didn’t want prior to this morning?

    I can’t even draw.

    Loving the drawings, keep them coming, and as another “I can’t draw” where do all you talented people recommend we start? Is it just a case of start drawing or are there tutorials worth following?

    Anyone can draw IMO and never be afraid to try.

    I approach most drawings using the break it down into basic object approach.

    Good example isTerry Longhurst book “I Can Draw”, if you see it anywhere definatly worth grabbing a copy.

    For example:

    Draw a Dinosaur

    Not my image BTW.

    @jimjam, stop sulking and post a drawing already!

    @redthunder, really, some people just cant draw.
    I’d probably manage to make a mess of stegosaurus step 1, and by step 4 – well that’d be game over.
    My drawing skills are such that my primary school teacher screwed up my best efforts and threw them out ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    Could be worse he could have used a pencil.

    Next lesson, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lUL-3TvzxU

    Think i’m getting the bug with this, friday night, the f… ๐Ÿ˜† rock n roll!

    The shadows and perspective and a bit keek.

    I was also openly mocked by my art teacher for my lack of ability –
    it says a lot about him that my biology teacher taught me more about drawing in a couple of lessons on microscope technique than he did in three years of lessons! Any way here’s my first attempt, sorry it’s pencil, but there was one in the cupboard where the paper is kept!

    Agree with redthunder that anyone can draw but like every skill some people have a higher aptitude than others. What is confusing or counter intuitive is the fact that the traditional drawing exercises designed to improve ones skill will produce worse results unless practiced for years.

    Me too. I remember others in my oโ€™level art class doing paintings, that to me looked like Monet himself had done them. My teacher came over, looked at mine and said โ€œis that a symbolic style?โ€, as it looked like a four year old had done it.
    For me drawing is a bit like dancing, some people are clearly very good, but those that arenโ€™t should not be dissuaded from the enjoyment to be had.
    This is a great thread and I would appreciate seeing some of the less accomplished efforts.

    Good or bad is relative and in the eye of the beholder. Some times scribbles are awesome, as evidenced by this thread.

    I agree everyone can draw. Just a matter of people believing in themselves and trying not to be too scared to make a mark.

    This is a good video about loosening up and scribbling away.

    Very Nice redthunder.

    Full disclosure I coloured the eyes green and added the M shape on his chest in photoshop with the dodge tool. I have never drawn Spawn before so I forgot he had that. I also forgot to add lots of other chains and other details. Frustrating process since the first charcoal sketch was better than the final product.

    Jimjam, you getting involved in this again? C’mon post up some of your stuff.

    Ps I’m only against Photoshop for this as I use it all the time(not really for illustration purposes). I’d just prefer to see actual drawing rather than computery stuff. But batter in, I’m not the thread adjudicator! Don’t let me stop ye. You can clearly draw though, you don’t need to Photoshop! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like the horse body and the head face left bottom right corner…but they never came together on tnis occassion.

    KEEP CALM
    Carry on

    Get them back out, there are no shyster art teachers here! ๐Ÿ˜†

    Liking this thread. And (let’s forget for a moment it’s STW) …

    *edit – ok well, it is a challenge and selected prize-winners, but the focus is absolutely the challenge. And ink. Inky ink.

    I missed yesterday. Uninspired by swords. Off out shortly to try and find a shy person to pose while I draw them (a self portrait absolutely not being posted online)… Or not.
