Honestly anon, i didn’t even know how to respond to this message because it’s pretty much the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about my art. Thank you! and rest assured i’m not about to stop any time soon.
Wow, I’m absolutely blown away by the reaction my Bic illustration has gotten, thank you all!
If anyone is interested, here is a slower hi-rez version on youtube, where there’s a bit more time to see each of the individual scans come together.

hey, i can relate to this so much.
I started a new sketchbook this week, and completely screwed up the first page. While i was annoyed with myself, the fact is i was also a bit relieved. As much as i hate doing bad drawings, the pressure was off, this was not going to be a ‘perfect’ sketchbook. I was free to do whatever the hell i wanted without the pressure of screwing up the book, because i already had.
I’m a perfectionist too, and i know it’s difficult to accept even one bad sketch. But the thing is, bad drawings are just as important a part of the learning process as the good ones. The more i draw, the more bad drawings i do. But it’s through accepting that, and taking the lessons of those bad drawings that i improve.
If you draw every day, then even if only 10-20% of your drawings work out, that’s still a lot of good drawings in a year!
hey, here’s the process video i put together for my bic marker illustration, check it out!
Lots of practice!
Thanks. The truth is, i realized that the most important part was getting the values right, keeping my darks dark and lights light. As long as i followed that, i could get away with pretty much anything else in terms of colour choice.
