Sketchies are small postcard size stream-of-consciousness sketches that I make in order to shut down my inner critic (that is just after waking up or before going to bed, and sometimes during the day for switching off). They're very much like freewriting exercises - mindfully-mindless experiments without limiting myself to a certain topic, technique or style. See this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qq-TFRH128
About Set #7: Lately I've been playing around with combinations of greyscale and lines; one of these Sketchies - the swirl - is included here, another one is up on the website as the August freebie (the link is further down). For contrast I chose a doodle-tangle-style drawing for the second Sketchie. I was very tempted to add some shading here, too, like for my greyscale doodles, but then I thought there are quite a few ways of doing that, and so I rather leave the shading up to your preferences and imagination. :)
What you can do with Sketchies
The Loose Leaves Collection is the current bonus pack when you subscribe to 3 months of Sketchies. For links to the current one-month subscription (that is without the bonus collection), the Loose Leaves on their own, coloured examples, freebies and more about Sketchies please read on World of Magnifica http://worldofmagnifica.eu/sketchies/
Right away, you get the current Set #7 and the Loose Leaves collection as JPG image files, suitable for printing and digital colouring. Like with photos, you can adjust the brightness of the greyscale sketchies according to your taste, which would not be easy to do if they were PDF format.
For the next 3 months, as soon as the following set is published (on the 1st, 11th and 21st of each month) you'll receive an email with the download link.
Altogether you get 24 Sketchies with this subscription.
Image size: Each Sketchy is 4" x 5.5" (about 10cm x 14cm) when printed at 100% and 300dpi resolution.
PS: I'd love to see what you do with these designs! If you are on facebook, you're very welcome to guest-post on the World of Magnifica page https://www.facebook.com/worldofmagnifica/ so I can share your work as inspiration for others!
