Here’s a sketch of my husband sketching. That’s his own sketch at the corner of mine. I use whatever implement is closest at hand for sketching, and yesterday I found this jumbo pencil/crayon hybrid in my colored pencil box. I don’t remember how it got there, but it just glided over the paper. It’s not greasy or smudgy, either:
Since last year, I’ve been sketching my dog nearly every day. Most of these “Daily Dogs” are done while he’s sleeping, but sometimes he is a professional model who strikes the perfect pose.
Illustrators, artists, designers, what are your sketch habits, if any? Does your sketching style differ greatly from your finished work? What are your favorite tools and supplies? I’m curious.
Somehow, my notes for this week’s Illustration Friday word went from “Things that are red” to this. RAAAGE is a thing that is red, no?
I will probably make this available as a poster before I include it in my portfolio, because it looks so different from most of the work there. I like where it’s going, though.
