Wanted, moonsketches for a presentation
      #5719817 - 03/08/13 03:13 AM

Hi moonsketchers

I work on a presentation for a workshop moonsketching at my local astronomy club. I'm looking for examples to show different sketching styles: kind of paper (white, grey, black,...), paint, pastels, pencil, carbon, stippling, digital,... So no need to be a masterpiece.

Who don't mind? Where can I find your sketches? Ofcourse your name will be mentioned in the presentation.

Thanks a lot!

I wish I had some for you Jef. I will recommend some images from Harold Hills book/portfolio of pen and ink lunar drawings using the pointelist method. To me the prospect of all the tiny dots is maddening but some like it . A nice variation on the lunar sketching theme. A prime benefit being that it reproduces well and better than typical halftone illustration.

Hi Jef, good luck with your presentation, and let us know how things went, ok?

Feel free to use my Moon Sketch Tutorial (also available in an Adobe document version) which includes a section about basic materials needed.
You're also welcome to use any of the moon sketches in my CN Gallery.

Jef,

You are welcome to use any of my sketches in my gallery and if you want a higher resolution image let me know and I can e-mail it to you.
If I were you I would use a lot of sketches you have done they are great.

Thanks all for your reaction. I had a great time browsing through your lunardrawings and selected those who I liked most.
Maybe I missed it, but has anybody a completely digital sketch in his gallery?

Jef if you check my gallery you will see that my sketches are digital. Use whichever one you need.
