:oThis is the first time I have tried to sketch something, I've never really tried but always wanted too:D. My confidence is good at the moment so I thought I would give it a go.....it's not perfect I know:rolleyes: but I'm sort of happy for a first try:):):)

That looks really nice. Especially for a first try. I've never tried to sketch on the program. Anyway, you can deffinatly tell it was a rose which I think is what you were going for. Good job. :)

It is beautiful. You reminded me of my first flower. A guy walked by and told me the cat looked nice! :):):):):)

Bumble, This is a wonderful sketch of a rose, just beautiful!:)

Looks awfully darn good to me. :)

Well, BIG SMILES. A rose seems a courageous undertaking having not sketched. Remarkable outcome I think.

It's funny not knowing how other people work. I look at the precision, beauty and accomplished technique in your paintings and somehow I just assumed sketching was a foundation for your work. It's so cool of you to say "This is the FIRST TIME I've sketched something." There is a great lesson in there somewhere for anyone coming into their art, no matter their level of experience. And it also shows our assumptions don't mean very much.

I think the rose is really very good - almost hard to get it's your first sketch - seems too darn good. :):):)

This is a cool post for a number of reasons beyond the fine sketch itself. ;)

I'm a sucker for sketch's and this is beautiful. A sketch is a little less forgiving as a finished product than a painting is but you worked your magic on this! Wonderful!:D

Seriously, this is your first sketch?? Wow! :)

Sketching's addictive, by the way; you may very well get hooked -- be careful :D

Oh, Bumble...this is just gorgeous and with it being your first sketch is something even more remarkable! You've used the cross-hatching for shading and I find that so well done. I love pencil sketches...I guess it's what I done most in my traditional artwork as well as using color pencils. I've "attempted" pencil in AR but just didn't quite get that feel that I was looking for as in traditional penciling. Now seeing this, has inspired me to give it another try!

Thank you lee:):):)
Mannafig....Thank you :):):D
Thank you Eileen....I had the paper set on smooth canvas and the pencil on 50% pressure, precise Off. I think it was set on Hard and Dark in the presets.

Good going. Interesting to see you down this path also.

Nice work Bumble. I have never had the courage to tackle drawing a rose. Didn't want it to come out looking bad, yours looks quite good. Guess I might have to give it a go.
