Last friday, i coincidentally found on Tumblr an image from Masamune Shirow that reminded me of how awesome it was to do line work. despite the digital line works i did lately, i haven’t done a real sketch on paper from more than five years now, and it’s starting to be a regret.yesterday, i decided to do something about it. i bought everything back, from pencils to inking pen and erasers. i am now equipped. a first sloppy test for tonight.
sketch derived of the painted version. sketching does bring a lot of challenges that i had left aside: you just can’t fake or drown anything in brush strokes. you need to “design” each shapes, there’s no alternative. it makes me think, design wise. i guess it’s a good thing.
personal sketch. for some reason, whenever a number comes to my mind, it’s always going to be 78. i have no idea why. it just happens.
