Since my post about smaller characters I have had some fun with warm up sketches to create several more animal characters with a more rough hand drawn aesthetic. Whilst working on these I have realised I am now enjoying my sketchbook work a lot more.
My sketchbooks have never been something I have been totally happy with, the way they looked and showed the development of my work was very line based with little colour and interest. Since January when I have been making more textures and using more colour and patterns it is a much more attractive sight.
These are the two sketchbook pages for these characters:
I am quite impulsive when I work so I mark things down make notes on whatever is in front of me, in this sense my sketchbooks can be quite random bu tI think this works in my favour as it means I work fast and the pages are more interesting and inspiring to look at.
