Jeffery R. Watts doing Quicksketch for 3 hours which is like watching black magic happen. Consolidating the human form to be able to proficiently draw it in 3-5 minutes is quite the feat.
Once I get a car I’m going to do a Saturday carpool from LA to Encinitas if anyone wants to go figure drawing with me. Give me a heads up and I’ll get you started on how we use the pencils. It took me 6 months to get used to them. The pencils if you get a new one and new at sharpening take 30 minutes. I got it down to 10-15 mins after a year of doing this. Pencils require a light touch, if your heavy handed your going to break your pencil.
The pencils are sharpened a certain way to get you used to handling the delicate touch of a paintbrush. So you don’t learn how to draw proficiently but not have the hand dexterity for a paintbrush and have to spend an extra two years training your hand. Helps expedient the process but makes it difficult to new students. Not only are you learning to draw, your training your hands dexterity as well.

I have been working on a mech game with two pretty rad dudes. It’s my first mech game and I am super excited!!
Some helmet doodles I did during tonight’s sketchjam. Been holding one over at my house on Fridays.
Using a some brush pens I picked up from Kinokuniya. First time using brush pens! Also on some cheap paper I picked up from Kino meant for writing on but it takes pen really really nicely. To get the soft gradients I just use a white pencil.
Oh yeah my first time with brush pens. I used white pencil to get the soft gradients! Drawn at the Friday sketchjam I been having at my house lately. It’s great I went crazy one Friday and baked 72 muffins. The baking fever seized me.

I think the biggest moment for me was when I got my own apartment in a really nice place. My own living room. My own kitchen. My own bathroom. My own bedroom and closet. Growing up with lots of siblings I never had any space to call my own. It really pushed the gravity of how far I’ve came and where hard work can get you.
It was nice having such ample space after sleeping in a chair at my moms place in a corner of the living room where my computer was and living out of a duffel bag for a closet that I kept under the table. And then the couch with half a linen closet to put my clothes when I moved to Encinitas.I slept on the floor under a table for a little bit until the room mate before me moved out.
But gotta do what you gotta do to make your dreams come true.
Since I get a lot of questions on this lately on, I’d figure I’d post this here too. Also seems a hot item to talk about right now.
So my timeline!
