Sometimes it’s nice to do a simple piece and leave it in sketch form. Maybe one day I’ll go back and line & colour this. I really like character development, to give an unspoken personality and story.
Usually if i’m drawing for myself i start out with a blank page. I tend just to start making shapes on the page with no idea what I’m doing. Then suddenly something will appear in those shapes, a face normally, be that a human, monster, animal etc. From the head the rest just clicks into place. When I was younger I use to get board after just drawing the head, now I’m better at realising a whole figure =)
