CHARACTER STUDIES 2 by stalk CHARACTER STUDIES 2 by stalk
Another shot of visual development and general sketchiness while trying to get my thoughts on a character out on paper.

I actually have many sketchbooks and pieces of scrap that look like this with something of interest finished to some degree and surrounded by shorthand scribbles. I look at how pretty and ordered other artist's sketchbooks are and I feel like maybe my mind is too chaotic to follow that way of working. Anytime I start sketching it looks like this and in no way is it pretty or organized. Is there such a thing as sketchbook envy? :lol:

If it is any comfort to you, I love the messy sketchbook feel. I think it shows alot of emotion and the way an artist thinks.
And if your sketchbook pages are all like this then you just went up another notch in my respect-o-metre xD

You're right, there is so much rawness in sketchbooks and sometimes that work looks totally different from more finished pieces. You can really see where the ideas birth from without the spit and polish.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I do love some spit and polish myself, colorists usually do, but the rawness has a certain power to it. It still feels free, with so many possibilities.

Nice work, man! The level of detail in this is just incredible. As to neatness of sketchbooks, well you're far ahead of me on that score. :) Excellent work! Very well done!
