How about a section for reference photos? I take a digital camera around with me to capture things to use for inspiration later when I don't have time or the materials to sketch it out. Strange angles, shapes, spontaneous moments, that kind of thing. A place for people to share such photo-sketches would be a great addition. At least I think so.

That's a good idea Mothos ... I would also love to see photos of the SketchCrawl day around the globe ... the get togethers and such ...

Definitely these forum colours need to be tweaked. I can't read what I'm typing right now. Though it could be because I'm using Firefox. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

AS for photos, I'll prorbably take me camera with me. It should be well-enough documented.

I see ... yeah it's working for me on Safari ... but more then a couple of you are having trouble, so I'll try and tweak it now ... I might go for a lighter grey for bg color and a black font ...

The grey is readable (in Safari anyhoo) but for ease of legibility, it could be a little lighter.

by the way ... I just noticed that if you are registered you can change the setting for BOARD STYLE ... if you change it to Subsilver it goes back to the default white and blue board palette ...
So anyone who might have a hard time reading the black on grey has the option of switching back to the default look ...
cheers

I'd love a plain old "post your art" section. Maybe we could get a whole art community going here.

This may seem kind of lame, but how about a "sticky" that defines a sketchcrawl and how we may participate.
The simple mechanics of craftsmanship, drawing, carpentry, sculpting, etc., are not art. The art is that burning inside that simply demands to be expressed through one's trade. - Blade

I agree with Blade21292; it seems that a lot of newcomers are disoriented.
