Being a natively digital artist I had never done much pencil work outside of the occasional drawing class at the local community college. Early on in this year, or perhaps late last year (2007) I had the good fortune of finding myself a part of Mr. Alan Tew's DrawNight tradition and as a result of the positive vibes, pleasant company and plenty of practice I have come to enjoy pencils quite a bit.
Most of the following thumbnails are from DrawNight with the occasional sketch from meetings and breaks. The subjects are usually very similar as I often find myself trying to understand or attempt to solve the same problems. Generally speaking I don't use these thumbnails to create a painting, however they have been indispensable in regards to studies and inspiration. Time varies on these, easy to lose track :)
