Blog Doodles/Sketches

drawing half

unfinished eyesAs I’m looking through my sketch folder, these eyes remind me of something my wife pointed out. She commented that I tend to only sketch half of what I am drawing. one hand, one leg/foot (not always on the same side of the body) sometimes only half the face. The rest is only shape and suggestion; no details. She asked why. I told her that sometimes the sketch is only to get a thought on paper. If you do a full character then you’re basically getting the thought down twice. Instead of spending time doing one particular aspect twice I move onto another part of the character. This sort of explains why I only draw half. Bun in all honesty it’s just something I tend to do.
