Fast Sketching Techniques by David Rankin
I am currently reading Fast Sketching Techniques by David Rankin. My interest was peaked after reading about the book in some Everyday Matters Group postings. The three basic techniques David Rankin uses are: Black Linework, using a Blending Tool for grays, and establishing whites for points of interest. I like his technique because the sketches look, strong, bold and solid (his do anyway!). I practiced this technique while watching TV.
