Just for laffs: a shot of the marker monster mash-up in progress:
And a qwik-sketch demo from my animal drawing class. I use a purple Tombow brushpen 'cuz they are very visible. I'm drawing on a giant 24" x 36" newsprint pad--it's this new oversized pad they sell, and they've got an oversized masonite drawing board to go with it. It's the coolest thing, great for demo'ing in front of the class--except the damn clips aren't worth a crap (just like all masonite drawing boards nowadays...). And my arms are so short, I can't fit the thing under one arm--even using the handhold hole (pictured above).
