The Green Book – Sketches from 2001

Sketches from 2001 – A.K.A. The Green Book

Here you will find the archive of my sketches from 2001. There is no significance  about a green sketch book except for the fact that it was on sale at the time I purchased it. No matter, here is where you will find a lot of the sketches from the late 2001 era. A lot of this was made when I was going to M.A.T.C. for a while and I had some classes in between and there was a 1 hour delay between classes. so one hour a day for a year, and I filled an entire sketch book. Most of the sketches within this book was either reference sheets or things that I used to play around with my Sumi-E Ink Pen. As a note this is part 2 of 2 of my green book series and if you would like to go back to the first part you may click here.

Many of the art pieces items were done on an Amiga 500. The maximum color palette of about 32 colors.You could go up to 4096 color in HAM-8 mode but it was problematic. During this time the software used was called “Digi-Paint” made by Electronic Arts. Resources were tight at the time. However, learning how to color during that era has taught people a level of restraint that may have been lost with modern painting programs.
