Hi, Dan.

I followed your link over here from John K's blog.

Just curious - how large is the paper you're using? I can't tell if this is a great, big sketch book or one of those pocket note pads. (I'm using regular, old 8.5" x 11" copy paper, BTW).

This looks like a good start for the line-of-action lesson. Have you done more? Congrats on continuing to post your work. If you'll notice, I'm REALLY lagging the pack!

Keep it up! I'll pop in again...

I put this comment on craig d's blog, but I'll repeat it here because I think it explains some of the drawing habits I've been trying to develop:

Hey. I use 8.5 x 11 paper like you do. I like your drawings, and am especially impressed with your attention to detail. You might want to focus on drawing your lines at the correct angles; I try to do this by looking at the original subject most of the time and only looking down at my drawing to fix proportions and details. I noticed that you and a lot of other students seem to draw a lot smaller than I do, and I wonder if I should try drawing smaller too. I'm also wondering how long it takes other people to draw the drawings from the book. It usually takes me about a half hour because of my focus on accuracy, but I noticed a curious improvement in some drawings that I finish in less time because I am rushing. Anyway, don't worry about being behind in the lessons. Let me know if this advice was helpful to you, because it was certainly helpful to me when I heard the same advice.

Nice stuff! Id suggest you should compare your drawings with Preston's by overlapping them in a program. I think its real important to spot those little mistakes.
