  1. Thanks for the explanation, I heard you mention the term a few times and I now know what you mean as it is pretty much an artistic form of note taking or not unlike concept art. I’m betting you have quite a mass of these types of sketches and I like the one above. šŸ™‚

  2. I tried the “call it stupid” idea. It felt like my drawings were forced homework… without the satisfaction of being able to slap them on the teachers desk when I was “done”

    But yes it does keep you from saying “is it good enough”

  3. I’ve hear of the concept of “getting it down on paper any way you can” before but I think you really “drove it home” for me this time.

    I have been using a very simple program that came with my digitizer unit and do stick figures for the poses and flesh them out a bit. I save them using a screen capture program, (as I often can’t get it to save under win-10[sketch can’t handle 10’s restrictive nature.] I then drop the link into a webpage template and add the notes I need to keep my thoughts coherent. I save that to a ‘sketches’ folder and then scan them from time to time for ideas, (that is when I have time to get bored to death).

    Thanks so very much.

    PS. In that outfit, she is looking like “One Hot Fox!”
