Sketchbook #3

Some more sketchbook work a couple from tonight, one is a Rockwell study. I like drawing more than anything. I like the sketching style that has evolved for me over years of practice. I have pretty much ditched all of the non-essential details and just focus on the important parts of the subject. I also usually just suggest the darks with a quick hatch scribbling, another thing that just started looking better after a lot of practice.

And "Thanks" to Ryan Wood, my last visitor(see lone comment on "drawing" post).

beautilful sketches, great shapes on the rockwell study, there is "something" with this character, the second has such a great and impressive look and do you have the phone number of the 3rd? ^^
this is another good demonstration and lesson for me, thanks Dave for sharing this with us again... And great new design of your website!

These are gorgeous. Pencil? Looks like very commital line work. No construction, very few misses. Just bang,bang,bang lines just where you want them. I need to draw more.

Man, I love your sketches! These are fantastic, so simple but I could look at them for hours.

Thanks all(except joe)
I pretty much always draw with pencil. Usually I have just one or two construction lines that need erasing. basically just a quick box to shape the head, I pretty much go from there.
The third is the Rockwell

Great work! I love the drawings, so simple what isn´t easy. Thanks for your comments. I´ll wait for you on http://caruso-art.blogspot.com/
were you will find my personal and editorial works for adults. I think there are more interesting than the children´s works.
Saludos!

Very strongly defined and well chosen lines. Your caricature approach to sketching makes the drawings instantly appealing and fun to study.

Beautiful sketches. I would be curious to see what you could do with scratchboard or wood etched prints.
