Sketching Ideas – The Call

05.09.2017_Sketch_ShaimaIslam

I’ve been getting some ideas down for my next drawing. A few of you have asked me here and on Tumblr, on sketches & how I go about using them in my creative process for a finished piece…I know there are many artists out there (some among my personal favourites) who do amazing pre-painting sketches & drawings; I however don’t always do them. It depends on how much of the idea I have established in my head and how confident I feel about transferring that to paper. If I’m doing client work that’s of course out of the question, as you definitely need to do sketches and drawings before even thinking of starting the final product. Even for this next piece I’ll be doing, I know what I want in my head but I needed to get a feel for the placement and mood of the subject(s) for me to get started. Keeping to a ‘sketch’ however, is often out of the question for personal projects. It’s most often a starting point.
