Well, the only way to get better at something is to practice, no?

sketches aren't supposed to be good or bad. They are just getting the idea of something down. Too many people put pressure on sketches being amazing or perfect the first time. A sketch is not a drawing and a drawing is not a sketch. They are different things. A sketch can turn INTO a drawing, yes, but for me, that is very rare. Usually I will do many many sketches, revise the composition and draw it over and over until I get a sketch I like. Most of the first ones turn out to something I don't like though. That's the point of sketching, to work out your idea, not make a perfect image. :p Sometimes it takes 5-10 sketches to get the right idea.

I do more sketches than finished work... especially 'cause I need ages to sketch something and I never have time to finish what I sketch !!!! :lol:
But I also do alot of pose or design studies, and sometimes I post them. =) If they're not too much failed...

all my drawings are based on sketches, often I just leave the outline as the sketch itself. I sketch a lot although I don't post most of it.

I make lots and lots of sketches and then put them in sketchdumps ^^ I need to work on doing more finished pieces, really. But I like seeing sketches from other artist. LiLaiRa's dumps are my favorite part of her gallery.

I'm the same, I really need to work on finishing works and focusing on that instead of tons of sketches that go unused.

I never like my finished work nearly as much as sketches (there's science behind this) and love seeing process work by others.

I feel the same. ;-; Sketches look better to me in my work too. Seeing process work is the best!
