Wrong Place, but for a reason

Recommended Posts

I know this is the wrong place for this, cuz there arent gonna be many pictures if any, but the place it "should" be has a different brand of people that i dont want to poll, i want to poll the people who actually participate in the paper chase thread.

 

How long does it usually take you to sketch, not complete color, but to the point of an outline that you are ready to color and you know that the design of the piece. I only inquire because everybody is always sayin "oh, that was a quick sketch" but as an example, i am a quick sketcher, it does not take a long time, so i could not use that excuse because that is how i do for all my sketches. To come up with an outline, it usually takes me anywhere from 5-30 minutes, which is relativly quick.

 

I was only wondering all of this because i wanna know what base people have for believing that "it was just a quick sketch" is a valid excuse, if a person does great sketches in a short amount of time, that means every sketch will be quick. I hope all this makes sense.

when im sketching a quick outline to paint with no color it takes usually 10-20 minutes. but if im do like a book piece that looks really good and i want all the letters perfect it sometimes takes me a few days. only like an hour a day tho.

id feel like a loser if i spent anymore than an hour and a half on a sketch(no offense to any of you who put real work into your sketches...i just have low self-esteem:( ).....but i dont really get all into sketches..and do CRAZY backgrounds and CRAZZY colour schemes.....and the only time it does take me longer than 45-hour is because im lazy..and will stop halfway through a sketch to watch tv..or better yet..sit on here:idea:

i dont wanna sound like an asshole but why do u write or draw if ur not gonna be devoted to it? if ur not gonna put time and/or effort into it then dont even bother doin it cuz if its not worth the effort then it cant make u happy.

word to that

but above all the ppl who control thire style dont need alot of time to sketch things they know wut they are doing and have it all planned

to us toys it might take longer cuz we erase alot of shit and somtimes a line wont come out stright and shit

to me it takes more then an hour to finish a sketch with pencil + 45 min just to color it + another hour to add background

Time

 

First starting out it used to take me hours doing outlines, it was a learning process developing original letters and connects. In the early 80's creativity was a must, we didn't have the internet to see what other people are doing . That was geez, 24 years ago. Nowadays I'll bang out a outline in 5 -10 minutes with a ball point pen.

 

I recommend using a ball point pen, I haven't used a pencil since the early 90's. It makes you think more and helps you develop a sense of letter movement.....

 

 

Peace

Uh, I don't agree. Just because you don't spend 4 hours on a sketch, doesn't mean you aren't devoted. Some people would rather spend their time on a wall, and others don't have hours of time to kill.

i agree with you, i mean, i usually get the idea in my head, and then crush it out on paper, and just spend time workin on it makin it how i want, but other times i can put one letter down and work on gettin the rest to work for days at a time, just erasing and puttin shit down. its just how it happends sometimes

Hmmm...

 

To do my sketches ranges from a hour to four. It takes longer trying to draw up the concept idea of a structural piece rather than the fun time of coloring and effecting the sketch. Then again it takes me longer than others to sketch due to fact im still learning.
