So I was going through some photos and realized I had a picture of a drawing I did a couple of years ago. It was my final project for my grade 10 art class, done as a grid drawing off of an 8x10 picture i printed off of the computer.

Unfortunately after this photo was taken, I had it framed and hanging up on my wall where it fell one day. The frame smashed and the glass scratched the drawing all up and I've never gotten around to fixing it, nor do I know if I'll even be able to.

Full size here > http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v36/My_Idiosyncrasy/livejournal/guitardrawing.jpg because I think it got resized and messed up the quality.

That's a very gorgeous picture. I'm sorry that the frame broke.  Sad What's drawing from a grid?

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

That is amazing! If I'd been able to draw in 10th grade I would've done portraits of all my guitars.

You take a picture and block it off in squares (in say 1 cm squares, or 1/2 inch i suppose if you're american...) and then you lightly mark what your drawing on into the same amount of bigger squares and draw it square by square, so you end up with an exact but enlarged copy of the original picture. It helps with perspective and stuff and gets you out of the side of your head that sees everything in symbols (like what a guitar should look like compared to what you actually see before you) because you're only drawing what's inside each block, one block at a time, instead of the whole picture all at once.

Ooh. Sounds fun, I might try that one day  Wink I think it would look so cool to do that but have it "checker"- some squares in regular black and white, and some squares in the colors you'd actually make the items in the picture, like a checker board.  Smiley
