So, her’e the rough sketch…and rough it is. It’s painfully lacking in interesting details, but then, that’s what sketches are for.
In the past, I would jump in full-sized, with no prior sketch, and waste mucho dollars on paper, doing version after version. I now eliminate problems from having done the sketch…and since the paper I use costs upwards of $5 that’s significant. And less emotionally frustrating, I might add.
So, I’m also hearing the voice of my artist mother as I look at this sketch…..”If you add a couple of details, your picture will tell a story”.
“But, Mom, I don’t want to tell a story! I want to create a mood and an emotion”.
So, I look a this sketch..it has an Asian artwork feel to it.
I will add details to it, and hopefully create a mood, and tell a story. Yes, Mom.
