timepiececlock: (Bite me. -Toph)
I've started a sketch of ATLA fanart, which I'm very excited about. I've drawn about half of it now, on what I call "canvas board" for lack of a better term. It appears to be a piece of stiff paper-board or light cardboard that has something canvas-like stretched across it and glued to the surface. So it's like drawing on canvas weave... but the back is hard, instead of pulled over a frame.

I LOVE THIS STUFF.

I need to get more of it. I sort of inherited this blank piece of board when I got a bunch of my late grandmother's painting supplies three years ago; I've no idea how old it is or if you can even buy it anymore (it's got to be at least 10 or 12 years old.) This stuff is great to draw on. It erases easily, and it's much stiffer than paper or a sketchbook. Plus, when I'm done sketching I can just paint right over the thing instead of trying to transfer it.

This is the first fanart I've done in nearly two years. Should be fun. I've never had the discipline to stick with drawing, but I do have a plentiful supply of pastels (high school) and acrylic paint (college), just waiting to be picked up again.
