How my sketches typically look like. On the left is the extremely rough (slightly bigger than) thumbnail sketched out quickly in my sketchbook, and shadows blocked out digitally. When I get an idea I try to sketch it out as fast as I can to capture the ‘energy’ of that visual image. It’s kinda like a one-line description of a story visualized in a single image. Unfortunately this also means the sketch will turn out really amorphous, blobby and chicken-scratchey, and possibly something only I can understand XD
The one of the right is a re-worked sketch, drawn digitally over the first rough. This is where I’ll start figuring out (roughly XD) the details in the scene - the subject’s outfit, the objects that directly interacts with her, the background/foreground etc.
just completed a huuuge amount of work from the weekend, all fueled by a single log of Oreo Swiss Roll cake, and plenty of water and video game music (Chrono Chross OST brings back such wonderful memories!) Now back to catching up on commissions and other stuff. Much apologies for not replying to any PMs at the moment - I’m still doing my best to catch up!
