Well I took a creative break to recharge my batteries and did not draw a thing for several days. Let me tell you, it felt weird! My mind kept saying, "you REALLY should be doing some practicing today, you shouldn't be wasting time." But then I realized that rest is just as important as work. I felt much more inspired when I got back to it. Beforehand I was sort of forcing myself, and of course, the end result was uninspired.
Here are some character sketches in charcoal. I like this little boy a lot. I feel like he's someone I'd like to know. Can't wait to finish this in color!
