I thought it would be beneficial to show how I clean up sketches before posting to my Blog. Here I used my Caveman sketch [from my 5x7 sketchbook] as an example in Corel Painter. One can also use Photoshop or a free painting suites such as Krita to accomplish the same.
Just my thoughts on sketchbooks and which ones I like and use for travel / ideas, design and finials. I believe sketching is fundamental to art. It is a good practice to sketch everyday even if it is just doodles. I design better and my imagination flows easier when I draw regularly. With practice one becomes better.
Here I demonstrate how I use vine charcoal to do a value sketch which helps me to visualize a new character. It is a great approach to opening up one's imagination.
I had to do a voice-over since the original audio contained too much noise.
