Maybe I should post sketches again. I either finish a drawing or throw it into a folder on my hard drive marked "Never Gonna Finish", but I think most of stuff looks better as sketches. Maybe not correct or symmetrical, but better.

September hasn't been a productive time for me. I dedicated days to sketching but ended up with nothing really clicked. I kind of brute-forced the drawing above into existence. Once I started to add colour it became apparent that the bow was a mistake, but there is something about it that made me keep it.

Due to work deadlines and family obligations I haven't been able to draw any of my own stuff for a month. It's taken me two and a half days of mindless doodling to get kind of comfortable with drawing again; just in time to have all my time consumed by another episode I have to storyboard.
