Part of drawing is drawing bad and warming up... working out ideas and sketching. It's so important to sketch a lot and then slow down, and I tend to get caught up in speed, deadlines and drawing fast. These are some quick sketches that I did for a couple recent gigs. They are the first step of a finished piece and have so much life where a the finished product lacks, yet there are so many technical problems and general mistakes. I think it's good to show all sorts of work for critiques and review, so here are some quick sketches.
The celebs are very fairly weak in my eyes, and the dogs were very gestural. The Italian Greyhound shows the progress for the final product, and the colored borzoi was an experiment.
