You know what I don't do? Plan. I'm terrible at doing thumbnails, practice sketches, and color keys.
This is funny because in every other aspect of my life I'm a planner. For example, we're going to London and Edinburgh this year and I've already started obsessively planning every aspect of this trip that can possibly have a plan wrung out of it.
My drawings though? Nah.
Enough of that! My sketch from yesterday? Here's a practice color mock-up of it. This is just raw color... no shadows, no highlights, no detail. I decided that I needed to PLAN where my color was going to go and tweak it here and there, getting it to where I want it BEFORE I start in on the final.
I have to wonder if that's why I abandon so many drawings before they're finished... I didn't have a road map going in.
Sometimes, I'm not the brightest.
