This piece is coming along, cant wait to see it finished. I love the layering and sense of depth created by your compass. Question for you, Do you sketch out your pieces beforehand or do you just ink as you go along?
i do not sketch in the slightest, which is not always a problem, but can sometimes really hurt the overall composition and depth of my pieces. I just went with this one. I leave the "pre-planning" for school. I really just like to get everything I want out at once, and I am in such a rush to start it. Thumbnails and sketches diminish my inspiration.What about you? Do you sketch?
I have been sketching more often than I used to. When I created pieces with intricate designs I never pre planned. Like you, I drew what came out, living in the moment. But I have come to realize that none of my pieces will ever be finished and I see them all as stepping stones towards what I truly wish to paint,draw, observe, etc. therefore sketches themselves. Do you ever want to go back and fix a piece or repaint it?
