An occurrence such as this deserves to be celebrated with a hoedown.
I've been having a lot of fun with this Skunk Ape character lately. I'm in the middle of a mini animatic for a quick sequence I want to do with him. I'll post some of that in a bit.
Above and below are a rarity. I usually never post my rough roughs. As you can see, they're very raw...quick and dirty...I treat my roughs very instinctually and try to keep them as spontaneous as I can. I figured they were worth since as I don't post my entire "process" very often.
I love doodling on post its.
I have a confession. I HATE sketch books. I feel an enormous amount of pressure when drawing in a sketch book...I start to worry that I'll taint the entire book with a bad drawing. I'm not afraid of bad drawings, I know we've gotta get them out of our system, but I'd rather scribble freely and jump from post it to post it.
I've tried several times to keep a sketch book...but inevitably, I always abandon it for post its. When I'm doing rough doodles I like to draw small too. It forces you to focus on the predominant details and simplify things.Also, I doodle exclusively in pen. With pencil your tempted to continually sculpt ONE drawing by erasing or doing too much under drawing. With pen, you get one bold shot at it. If it doesn't work the first time, you start fresh.
The more times you draw it. The better it's gonna be.
PS. My next post will be my 100th post!
