I'm slooowly trying to get back into drawing again and finally taking some time to familiarize myself with using the Inkling with Sketchbook Pro. So far, I'm quite pleased with the combination, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the sketches some of you requested will turn out.
For now, I recreated the first exercise from all my introductory classes in art school, and just did some quick (<10 min) sketches. It's been a long time since I've done something like this, and I rather like how the simplicity and familiarity of the subject let my brain sort of switch off so I could focus on getting used to holding a pen again...

I'm happy to have you back.

These look pretty cool. Have you tried putting one weird item with two ordinary ones? Like two apples and a monster stressball, or two books and a ray gun. The exercise works just as well, but the image can be funny or creepy.

*laugh* I love it.

Fair enough. I do like the soft scribbly effect of the pen. That will work well with some of what you draw.
