One of the reasons I have such a large pile of half-finished art pieces is that I have a block in my head that tells me I need to finish every single thing I start. If I do a little doodle, then I need to work on it until it becomes a fully sketched, inked and coloured piece.
I’m doing a lot better at just sketching these days. Well, I’m a lot better at just doodling – thanks to wanting to use up the rest of a sketchbook that was falling apart.
But I really am working on stopping at the sketch phase of things that are more than doodles. Like this one – from an avatar I created using one of those generator apps.
You might have spotted another sketch in that post actually.
And the first version of the Elf Queen fairy.
This one was from a tutorial – but how adorable is he?
I’m also planning on doing the current run of Animal Alphabets as sketch pieces too, so keep an eye out for those.
