2010 Drawings

My original purpose of 3×5 was to practice my drawing and post my progress. Here are some of my most recent drawings.

I used to draw in pencil and then ink my drawings in later; now I tend to go straight to ink. I’m still drawing from photographs, though, and I have spoken to some artists and illustrators who believe this is sort of just transcribing imagery, and that one should be able to draw from sight.

I don’t know if there is a convention or best practice for this, though. Do you draw? What technique do you use for drawing? Where do you find inspiration? Do you draw from sight, and if so, how did you acquire this skill? Where do you go to sight draw? Let me know in the comments section below. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
