    yo ive been wondering for a long time does were you sketch make a diffrence on how it comes later cuz like when i sketch i usually chill at my art table with a dim lamp and a bottle of water necxt to me with my markers at hand but like when im at the regular table it really blows and i get all sloppy or i make stupid mistakes... my boys told me that its a certain "mood" or "enviorment" that you have to be in... like what type of enviorments are you guys in??? just thought it might help me a little now that im focusing more on my art then anything else...

    this may sound gay but its straight up thought......:D

    you guys are crazy. environment makes all the difference. When you can chill out and get in your zone you always draw way better...at least for most of the artists I know (including myself). I mean since you most likely aren't Keith Haring and aren't sketching on the run, get down with whatever place makes you comfortable (assuming that comfort helps drawing)

    hey, dont listen to artsol, he posted some shit a couple weeks ago and its the weakest shit ive seen on this board. but as far as i think, if enviroment matters to you, you need to get over it. when youre bombin on the street, youre lookin for police, youre lookin for people, and you got to be ready to run. dont rely on "the perfect enviroment"

    Yeah, alot of the time, I have to be in a good groove in order to be able to sketch out an all-out good piece. The conditions have to be right usually.

    my shit comes to me spontaneously too. i just have to grab a pen and paper and get it down. but most of it comes when i'm about to fall asleep, prolly cause i'm all relaxed. it keeps me up all night.
