Class Sketchbook


Self Portrait Comb Ink
Originally uploaded by Tomas.Quinones

After completing the “Intro to Drawing” class at Portland Community College, I scanned most of the pages of my sketchbook kept during this time. Some of the drawings were specific assignments, others experiments, ideas, and observations.

I’m trying to get over this shyness I have in sharing my work with the world and hope to get some constructive feedback about my work so that I may grow into a professional artist.

This particular self-portrait was done with a chunk of a comb and India ink. It took two hours as combs don’t hold ink very well and had to be dipped quite often and only produced very short lines. It produced an interesting effect but the tedium may keep me from trying it again.

See the rest of this sketchbook on my Flickr page.
