CG Cookie Livestream - Pencil Sketching - 8.26.15

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)
Moderator: Joe Chico

As one of the most requested livestreams is working traditionally with pencil. Today, I will be going over pencil sketching and rendering and what the difference is. Working digitally is great and I believe that working on your traditional skill set will only benefit your digital skills and vice versa. 

Join the Discussion before the stream with the Cookie Community HERE!


The Hour stream begins at 2 PM CST (-5GMT)

How about a course aimed at people who learned to draw and are having a problem making the jump to "paint" type techniques needed for Digital work?
[ like me ]

Also I tried to join cgcookie yesterday and it kept rejecting my user name 
 are there rules to follow, or just a lot of good names already taken?

I got an email from Jonathan Lampel 2 days after joining cg cookie. It asked what I'm most needing to learn. Just want to make sure it's automatically sent by the system our it's a real email that demands a reply.
