Here it is. My messy process. This is a rough sketch of page two in the booklet that I am preparing to send to a publisher by the end of this month! It is amazing how easy the rough sketches arecompared to developing them to finished pencils. It seems like it takes so much longer than it SHOULD, like there are rules about how this process goes or something.
When I do roughs, I am loose and non-committal. Then, when I get down to preparing finished art, I tense up, strive for perfection, and guess what? Perfection never comes. Why do I keep forgetting finished art does not come easily? But come it will, with the application of some serious butt glue. But the roughs are fun, because they are so free.
