I love seeing other people's sketches for things, so thought I'd share some of mine.
These are the very first, first, first, rough, rough, rough idea sketches for a new project.
I love when its almost like you're doing 'automatic drawing' - you know, like automatic writing (not that I've ever done that) where you just let whatever wants to come out, come out.
How to stage things -
Sometimes you see things in your head one way, then have to fiddle with it a bit to make it better.
Here I first "saw it" as the kitty looking in the cupboard from a 'straight on' back view with him standing on a little wooden stool, then decided a slight angle and a step stool were more interesting.
Here they're doing things to pass the time ~
The main task at hand ~
This is actually the first scene ~
Better not say too much more or I'll give it all away!
These obviously have a long way to go, but getting the first idea and gesture and staging is huge.
After that, the refining and finishing is a lot of work too, but I'm always relived to at least know what I'm going to draw.
