    I would love to be able to draw but, alas, I'm rubbish. I think is a very clever gift to have and great pics posted :thumb

    I liked it and really it is amazing and the creature deserves reward for this and really appreciable work. Just keep doing making more real art pieces.

    Sappers at Work - the Tate Modern. Not a big one for modern art but I like this.

    I got an Art 'O' level but I think I just scraped it. Would love to be able to draw/paint properly but don't have the talent. Some of the Hitler pictures are really good. His other interests were not so good though.

    I'm guessing this doesn't really count but I didn't know where else to put it, I told my brother I'd help him sort his room out when I was back from Uni and I only just got around to it, he originally wanted just 10 logos sprayed black at the top of his white wall but I thought it'd look a bit shit and plain. Came up with the idea of having 6 logos sprayed on bits of wood and repainting his side wall. Each piece of wood is connected to the wall with magnets so he can switch the order around if he wishes.

    Good stuff Speaks, I agree it definitely looks better than it would on the wall itself

    Does anyone else get really frustrated when they're doing a drawing? I'm pretty good at drawing myself but I still get frustrated when I'm not happy with my work.

    I was doing a portrait drawing earlier, and it was going all well until I noticed I've done the mouth proportion a little wrong so I tried to fix it. Again, again, eventually it got to a point where I went oh I give up and chucked the sketchbook away

    I get paid to a version of this for a living (graphic design), it's great and not really a job at all. I also find life drawing to be one of the single most relaxing things i can do, and have a mild obsession with shadows and movement in life drawing.

    You should practice the techniques they teach you in life drawing and fine art. Generally you get about 3-5mins for a pose and the concentration is more on the lines and the form than on detail. Over the session the time increases and you try different techniques to warm up until eventually you get a longer sitting 20-30mins.

    Also most people hold a pencil wrong when they're drawing, to get the best lines you should hold the pencil near the top and keep a looser wrist, this allows you to make more definitive sweep lines, and capture shape, movement and form far more effectively.

    I've dragged this thread up from the dead because I've just popped this up on my wall. i bought it from a local art gallery. It's a rather eclectic depiction of my latest home town Pontypridd from a local artist.

    What's your favourite wall hanging sports fans?
