Rare Sketchbook Doodle

I don't tend to post sketchbook drawings...mostly because they're usually just shorthand notes for paintings, and not worth looking at. But this one I like. Durring my Dick Tracy days, I did a lot of these little city composition sketches. In fact, there was a while there, where I was doing them on an Etch A Sketch...just for fun. I actually got pretty good at it. Maybe I'll see if I can still do it, and post the results.

Maybe.

I have enough trouble drawing without trying to do it on an etch-a-sketch!

Jason Scheier said...

Carlos Ranna said...

Huahuahauhau! I would love to see a etch a sketch drawing of yours someday! Nice cityscape!

Bobby Chiu said...

Etch A Sketch?? Jeez... love to see that!

thats so awesome how you got that foreground element in there- for me its a surprisingly-challenging thing to do when youre working with a far out city scape shot like that. You did it rather easily with lighting. Well done. Thanks for posting!

Hey there Paul!
Great sketches in these latest posts, I loved the squared leaves one!
Now that you've mentioned the Etch-a-Sketch, I guess I have to tell you about another one of our silly web toys.. check out the etchy.org website ;D
Hope all is well with you and your family in LA!
Stay well my friend!
Hugs,
Ale

Beautifull pencilwork. Reminds a little of the great works of Hugh Ferris, Metropolis of tommorow.You probably know of his work.

I like your work, anyway, I just saw it for the first time...

Great one, and a good thing that you start showing your sketches, I'm sure they are really worth to see them. Show more, please.

Paul, that's lovely. :) It's a great study in shapes and shading and I wish I could do it as effortlessly as you make it seem. I hope you had a lovely time in Italy!

Incidentally the Lord of the Rings Symphony happens in 2 weeks on the 19th to the 21st of December. We're -all- panicking - especially me. The administrative details have been making me lose my -mind-.

Good work.

I find it a little upsetting that you consider these "not worth looking at".
I personally think it's more interesting than the paintings.

I'd love to see some etch a sketch pictures, too.

Tommy Scott said...

I have to say that sketches are some of the most beautiful aspects of finished art. I love seeing how you think from the start!
