Here's a quick video on approaching sketching with a Sharpie pen while doing gesture drawing. This is the first one of this particular medium that I was happy to have it filmed by my buddy Carl Aspuria in "real time," as I know many people on my YouTube page were requesting to see the process in a one-to-one format.
• I just want to add, as artists we get set in our ways many times and we often do things that we're pretty comfortable at accomplishing. - Meaning we tend not to stray way from what's easier for us to do successfully. - This video is any example that sometimes it's nice to approach things differently, which you can see in how I'm gripping the pen in this demo. By holding the pen farther back in the initial stages, it gave me the ability to be more direct and chance my habitual drawing application.
