Sketching - this has been one of the pastimes I have been doing lately. I really don't intend to put my work in portrait but I also have no plans of putting it in garbage. I just actually keep it in my closet. In fact when my mom cleaned my room last week, she found one piece of my not so regal masterpieces jejeje... She was even surprised I know how to play tricks with pencil.
Sketching has been one of the most convenient way for me to ease out some stress from work. When I feel like I don't wanna talk to anybody what I usually do is to just put out a pen and a paper and start scribbling. I really I wished I am good at this. I have even read about those guys who can sketch fast. And they have found use of themselves huh... some even in the court room as court room artists.
The ability to quickly record impressions through sketching was found varied purposes in today's culture. Courtroom artists are usually sketchers. Sketches drawn to help authorities find or identify wanted people are called composite sketches. Street performers in popular tourist areas often include artists who sketch portraits within minutes.
A sketch method of reproducing photographs is done with a photographic enlarger in a dark room. The negative image is projected on the paper where the sketch is to be done. All the light shades are penciled until the paper is all the same shade.
Really wished new these things more intensely...
