Snippet Sunday

Lots of sketching this week. Copying some ideas outright (the horse below, frex), following a tutorial (the mouth), outright doodling, drawing with Sprout (sea creatures); all in all, working with different techniques... Speaking of techniques, when I mentioned gesture drawing last week, I meant "scribbled line gesture drawing" as seen here and in this video.  I can understand why some artists say not to rely on it (encourages messy lines), but I think I'll try it a bit more as a way to get over my brain's perfectionist tendencies.

A sample of what I did:

And I did some blind contour sketches of J, hilariously bad ones.  I'm going to try this exercise at least two or three times this coming week and am posting this week's effort so I'll be able to judge my progress.  I actually like the aborted one that is serving as a new icon.
