I thought it would be nice to share one of the ways I sketch out character ideas.

I first sketch the simple head and body shapes, then I sketch lines for legs and arms to create a pose template. I then use the sketches to create a final character design :D

It's a fun way for me to just create random characters!

I hope you like it!

hello! awesome art you have here :D
can I ask you something? I'm still a noob, so sorry if this is a noobish question XD
what brush/settings do you use to look so much like pencil?
thanks! ^^

awesome! i've always wondered what goes through the heads of people with cartoony styles. I can't draw what i can't see and even then its not exactly accurate but this has expanded my mind! thanks a lot

when you do all those shapes do you have any idea of what you will do ?
I'm trying to do the same but without previous idea it's a bit difficult ^^"

Steps 1 to 3, fairly easy. Step 4, not so much =P

But yes, fun indeed.
