sketch dump 01

I'd say 2017 wasn't really my year in terms of drawing, for various reasons. I'm not really proud of that, and I've beaten myself up about it quite a lot. But it is what it is. I will work extra hard this year to compensate and make it count.

Here are a few quick relaxation sketches that I did in between other stuff. These are all (except for the last one) in a way drawings of myself, or inspired by things that happened to me, or made me feel a certain way. As I try to give more personality and emotion to my characters, I found that it was very useful to use myself as a 'source of inspiration' because I know me and I know how I feel, which makes it easier to translate these emotions to my characters and make them more believable and real.
