A few years from now, I am out on my own, with this forum and nothing else but my self , friends, and life experiences as a guide. I am majoring in art. I need to be good at it. I need to be good at figure, and from life drawings.

I figured that I would go to college and draw people at random, quick sketches in the hall ways. Like gesture drawings.

Do you think I would seriously creep you out, or bother other people if I drew them in the setting to get practice ?

It woulden't freak me out if you asked me first. So, ask them first, and see where it goes.

I personally wouldn't get creeped out but if they don't ignore you and notice you drawing them, they might just come up and ask you wtf are you doing.

When people continue to obsessively post photographs of themselves in compromising situations all over the Internet, it seems almost hypocritical for them to also be bothered by a quick sketch out in public. Heck, they should be paying you to do so.

I wouldn't mind "posing" either. Just don't ask me to strip, I'd rather not be arrested for indecent exposure.

I think the biggest question is how often do people sketch on campus?

Some people find it flattering. Some find it curious. Others find it rude, and possibly offensive.

Sometimes asking permission can make the situation more akward. It also causes people to start posing. Sometimes you don't want a pose, you might want a casual image of real people interacting. A snapshot of life. The downside is if you don't ask, then your subject may dissapear before your finished...

Asking is usually the best thing to do, but don't be afraid to just start sketching.

You wouldn't happen to live in New Mexico or West Texas would you? I bet I could cure you of your fear of highway driving...

If not that, make you fear it for the rest of your natural life.

Back on topic... Just ask first.

If I knew why you were doing it I'd be fine with it. And I'd say, "Feel free to get my Cock'n'Balls in the drawing! :)"

This is something I learned in photography, so I'm not sure how well it would apply to you. If we wanted to take a photo of someone, or they happened to be in the picture, we'd snap the picture first, then ask for their permission to do whatever with it. If they said no, we just didn't use that photo for anything.

If you wanted to draw someone in a candid situation, I would say be a little more selective about your subject. It's usually pretty easy to spot the people who wouldn't mind based on appearances and actions (I know! Never judge a book by it's cover.)

I'd rather say that it would be rather offensive to sketch someone without a prior permission. Even if they don't say it at least it is bad manners if you ask me. But then again, there are a lot of people and they would all behave differently.
