Sketch-Jam?


PaizoCon

1 to 50 of 77 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>
Andoran Contributor

So, I know that N'wah and Lilith are both coming to PaizoCon, and I'd love to meet you both face-to-face, along with any other artistically-inclined Paizonians. Does anyone feel like getting together at a nice bar or coffee house and doodling for an hour?


Yay! Sketch Jam! I actually put this on the fan event schedule, right after Iron Illustrator and before the banquet on Saturday evening. Given that the area is rife with coffee bars, finding a location for such a thing shouldn't be too hard.

So yes, I am completely okay with this idea. :D

Being the Seattlite here, I suppose I should do my duty and find an appropriate coffee bar. I shall not rest until I have tried every coffee offered within a 10 block radius of the hotel!

So let it be written, so let it be done! :D


I wouldn't mind watching myself getting p-wned at a sketch jam in a coffee house. : ) Just as long as I don't have to resort to using napkins as a medium I may be able to last one round.

They aren't really competitive. What usually happens is that someone tosses out a subject idea, and then everyone gets twenty or thirty minutes to draw, and then we share. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's usually a lot of fun, because you get to see how other artists think and work.

Best coffee within walking distance of the hotel would be at Whole Foods....IMHO.

Well, this just sounds like all kinds of fun. Count my meagre rendering skills in for the ride!

Yay! May I join?!?! I picture this: a coffee table with 6-8 people sitting all quiet head down into a sketchpad...no talking at all :P


Now I'm even more sad I won't be there :(

Oh well. Maybe next year.

I'd get in on this (mainly to mooch cute artist fangirls from you talented people), but only if you promise not to mock my "art." :p

Hey! there is already a guy stalking the fangirls!.... Well, I guess two guys is as good as one... you are welcome to join! :D

Oh, I completely plan on embarassing myself. I just want to be around creative people.

But he's allowed to stalk the fangirls, Hugo. Sean's an integral part of what we obsess about :)

So then, how are YOU going to look in the Seoni outift? It's part of the Paizo fangirl kit.

I was thinking un putting on a Seelah outfit...already got it... but I think I can do a Seoni... My manboobs are nice enough...

I would so totally try to pull off a Seltyiel if I had the costume. Sadly all the 'male' costumes seem to require a lot of expensive materials :(

Keep your hands to yourself, froggy.

I am totally down with this. Though I don't drink much coffee. 'Sides, excessive caffeine gives me the jitters, so everything I drew after a cuppa would look like I scribbled it on horseback.

I'd ogle fangirls too, but I think my girlfriend would hurt me. So I guess I'll just ogle Hugo in his Seoni costume or something. :P

Damn, I'm gonna need to bring a sketch-pad and some pens that can withstand my artistic death-grip.

Side note: just went over to Eva Wildermann's page, and she said she'll be doing character sketches at PaizoCon. If I can get in on that, that'll be, like, heart-attack-inducingly awesome. :D

yeah, I would hate for you to get on a caffeen jag and trip over any more grounding wires. That looked painful man!

Taldor

if y'all have no qualms (with my 'artistic' skills, I'm looking at the nausea definition here ;)) about having a mere doodler in your midst, it sounds like a blast (and I know I'll be needing a hefty caffeine dose at some point).

All and sundry are welcome, so long as you're interesting in drawing and not just chatting (there's a whole convention for that). There's no experience-minimum, and I've learned just as much from people less experienced than myself as I have from more experienced people.

You know, I've actually discovered that fine-point Sharpies are just about my favorite pen for general inking. They stand up to abuse, don't run much, are waterproof, and they're dirt cheap :D

My only problem with Sharpies is that they tend to bleed a lot on the paper I usually end up using. I wonder if you used marker paper the problem would be less. *ponders* Worth testing out, I have a pad of said paper at home.

Okay, that's not just me. I use india ink pens now since that's about all that I've found that works well with the watercolor paper.

India ink pens are great, but someday I will plunk down the quatloos for a refillable brush pen. So pretty...

darn it, I really need to get a job so I can afford my art habit. :)

I just can't use expensive pens. Even if I don't actually end up breaking them in my oversized, gorilla-like paws, I fear that I will, and hence never use them even when I do buy them.

A shame, too, because I really, really love the lines you get from a rapidograph

Here's the sad part: I had a set of those once, a long time ago. It ended poorly. Hint to all potential buyers of presents for young artists: unless they show some kind of spooky prodigy-level talents, do not buy the kids the good pens yet. Buy them paper, sure, or a nifty art table or a supply box, but pens? Pens is can be expensive, and they're easily lost/broken/stolen by sentient space-weasels.

Yeah, I'll probably be rollin' Sharpie action for doodlin'. And at work, Sharpies is be free, yo. :D


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Inking? wussat?...


I feel you guys on the ham-hands, and totally agree with N'wah about buying the "good stuff". Save the good stuff for when you can appreciate it, kinda like getting a junker car in high school and driving that into the dirt. Make you appreciate the stuff you get after so much more. Bristol board vs. a generic brand, sable brushes vs. a brush that falls apart after three uses, real Higgins india ink vs the watery crap that fades after one day...And so on. :P

I don't generally travel with my "nice" art utensils - those stay firmly at home, on the desk. I have my +5 Vorpal Pencil Bag of Doom, filled to the brim and able to peg a player between the eyes at 15 feet. ^_^

I remember my car from high school. We were the same age! A 1972 Ford LTD. The hood went on for 6 miles, if I remeber correctly. Bits occasionally fell off at random. I still kinda miss it.

My '83 Toyota Camry liked to vibrate itself out of third gear, and the windshield wipers were shorted into a permanent "on" position. I had to take the fuse in and out to operate it. The muffler had rusted off and it sounded like a tank and my brakes failed me at one point.

And yet, I miss that thing. :P


I think a fine project for your Sketch-Jam 09 would be to design a Dark & Stormy Knight logo for the Jack Cult. *beg, beg, whine, whine...* Golems need luv too...

1973 Renault Le Car ... ran like a go cart. But it was front wheel drive and had the best suspension of any car I have ever driven.

If y'all see me at the Con, you'll probably wonder how I ever got into that thing.
</continuing thread-jack>

As far as mediums go, I've always been more partial to pencil than ink. Maybe tied to being able to erase the pencil ...

An idea:

It would be great if we all get a letter-size sheet and make a small sketch and pass it around to the other artists at the coffee/bar/taver/dungeon where we sit and do this sketch jam, so that we all end up with a nice sheet filled with several artist sketches and maybe add a "wish you well" comment or "I hate your guts" if that fits more properly :D

Kinda like a memento to take back home with us? :D

By the way. Those who love sharpies but don't like the ink going to other pages, the japanese made the undersheet for that reason. They're cheap, usually, and if you happen to like japanese TV, you can find it with images, if not, just random stuff for your Shi+ajiki.

EDIT: Deleted the URL, code hates me.

Ah, those are called pencil boards here in the US.

I had an awesome idea for a Sketch Jam...

Howzabout we all create a special PaizoCon II Paper Mini Set at the Jam? Each of us draws up one original critter or character (or we roll for it). Ideas for the mini set:

A fearsome minotaur, a beer stein in hand.
An ocularly challenged wizard holding tomes of planetary lore.
A bard rockin' on a gitar

For starters...or we can draw our Pathfinderized selves. :P

I love the minis idea. Or the "Pathfinderized Us" thing. Or I just love the idea of drawing with you guys. :D

Before I forget: when exactly will this thing be going down? I know Immora's scouting locations, so "where" isn't set yet, but I have pretty much no idea when anything's happening at (or around, or after) PaizoCon.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I suppose we can make arrangements at the Con, but I hope we can arrange it when we can all attend...I signed up to be Joshua's bit... GM for PFS Scenarios...

Andoran Contributor

I love the idea of a PaizoCon minis sheet, and I also love the idea of passing around a little letter-sized sheet to write little scribbles on. I look forward to telling both Hugo and Liz how much I hate them in an anonymous form :D

I suppose I should get off my lazy butt and start scouting out locations around the hotel that can handle upwards of a dozen people. This is turning out to be a lot more popular than I thought.

So are you talking about drawing our Pathfinder Society characters, or us (like Gavin, Liz, Ashton, etc) in Pathfinder incarnations? Ether way... win!
