Thank you Heather, I've wrote this down and will practice it before bed tonight Thank you. Looking forward to the update too
Thank you Teju … I will look into tracing techniques too … because I haven't yet got my head around how to actually transfer something with tracing paper lol … same as trying to scale up a thumbnail into a sketch when working traditionally, I can only work that out by using the computer.
just read Ness's reply below, I forgot about the lightbox! I will get that out and play around with it too. I think I'm in the stage of trying to find my process, at the moment it's all very messy and a bit confusing at times.
Thank you about the lightbox, I always forget I have that.
I want to start lightly so I can build up the sketch better, and help with finding my lines … sometimes I find the line I want, but it's hard to make it darker as I've already made all the lines too dark, but I do like the fact that maybe I need to sketch dark to get my lines down or just be ok with getting my sausage out from time to time lol and taking some tone away with the kneaded eraser I'm going to play with what everyone has said here and see what feels right
Thank you Rob … I practice drawing 3D shapes before bed, so can daisy chain this new light touch approach onto that … as long as I write it down, which I have Thank you.
