Just a quick character sketch I did, whilst experimenting a bit with a simpler, less rigid style (ignore the really dodgy hands - hands I’m pretty sure I just drew attention to).
Not to say that I want to completely stop doing stuff like this,
but this image did take me about a year to finish (working on it on and off, of course). And I haven’t really been doing that many illustrations for myself lately, so maybe finding a less exhausting style of illustration might help with that. I’m also trying to find a bit more humour and lightness in my artwork, and it’s a bit hard to do that with the more ornate style. We’ll see how it goes.
