Wow, everyone here are so talented and I love the expressions that you all have in your sketches.

Last year I discovered paint shop and spent more time then I should of doodling. It was very relaxing. I'd start off just hand drawing a sketch on paper then scanning it and then painting it through paint shop pro. I haven't done much drawing in a while, ever since we've changed over to our new pc and I still haven't downloaded paint shop on it. Now if only I knew how to doodle in expression like you all do, that's fabulous.

Here are some of my attempts.

A Japanese Chin on paper

And then finished with paint shop

Here's a dobie head, I couldn't find the sketch I did it on.

Here's a sketch of a horse

Finished on paint

This one I didn't sketch out first. I tried drawing it directly off paint. It wasn't easy; my hand/mouse coordination ain't too great.

Just so all of you real artists can feel better about yourselves, I'm posting my lame attempt at sketching Sawyer. He rolled over half way through and I had to improvise on a lot of this.

that is not a bit lame!!!!! You made me tickled pink that you posted your sketch! If you ever want me to show you some tricks of the trade just let me know! I would love to share. The most important is everytime you try you get a bit better..that is the BEST part of being an artist you don't go backwards. I know those months that i sketched everyday were the fastest improvement i have ever made and i had fun too. Since i was at work i used one of those 10 color pens..the fat one that you could slide down different sections for different colors. I still like a couple of those too..
They never hold still long enough Zoom! sometimes i will work on one for months catching them anytime i can when they resume the same position. That is what made my Mary portrait so important to me for i did it from life..it took 6 months of touching up a little now and then..anytime she was looking at me the exact same way and i could look up on the wall and see what needed fixing.

Please? I found a set of sketching pencils when I was cleaning everything out of my room. I used to draw quite a bit, and you're right about the improvement. I'd love to get back into it!
