random initial sketches

Not sure if people will be interested in these at all, but I thought I'd post the initial sketches for some of my pics.

I usually do color sketches. I don't actually do lineart sketches very often. But in this case, I included an equal number of both. I think it's pretty obvious why I don't usually bother with line sketches though, since they tend to be atrociously messy. I just don't have the patience to ever clean them up.

Wow...even thumbnail size your starting sketches look good. I just can't seem to start off with a rough blur and turn it into anything...I seem to require a decent set of lines at the start.

I'm the opposite. I find it very difficult to draw nice lines. Most of the time, I lack the patience, and I end up just scribbling. Only very rarely do I manage to do something with clean line art. :p

There's a lot of cool information in the sketchy line drawings, though. It's good to see some (awesome) variation, too, Haku!

Thanks for sharing.

Hmm, lookin' at this makes me want to try color sketches. But then you have to have a rather good concept of body proportions and what not, and I tend to use stock for reference anyways. Hmm...wonder if I could still try color sketching usin' the references?
*ponder ponder*
I think the top three are my favs *nod*. In sketch form at least, cuz I know I loved the middle one on the bottom when it was finished.

I think anything's worth trying at least once. :) I like color sketching because I can be messy with it, and it doesn't matter since I'll be painting over it anyway. Plus it just saves time. I'm too lazy to do lineart when the lines are just going to be destroyed/deleted anyway. :p

Thanks! I enjoy seeing people's sketches too. Especially if it's after I've seen the finished piece. I like comparing. :)
