10-05-2005, 10:59 AM
yes i know to draw straight lines and os i have to do lot of practices.
I'm using a pen tablet...

I heared that people use thier wohle arm to draw, or so.
When I started training to draw straight lines and round circles I noticed that it's better to draw the lines wehen i use my wohle arm instead of just my hand.

what's the right posture for drawing?

should just my arm mouve or my wohle body?
-I'm not shure. I think it's better if my body is always parallel to the tablet.
Is it better if my arm lays totaly on a table? I think so. Because at the moment my tablet i right at the border of the table. not so good...

just some basics tips for better control of my pencil.

thanks and sr of my mad english ;)

You should draw with your entire arm for longer strokes, but it's not really possible with fine details. But yes, you should find a place to rest your arm, if for no other reason than it is more comfortable and you'll be less likely to injure yourself.
