This year has been the year of doctor's for me. Thankfully I'm doing good and last weekend I was at the eye doctor's office and I took my sketchbook with me(always keepin' it handy). I started sketching and the words "observation is Creation" came to mind and it made me remember that if I don't know what objects or people look like I can't really draw or create them in my work. We need to study and sketch observationally! LOOK at stuff and draw it. LOOK at people and draw them. keeping up my sketchbook helps me create new shapes and build on my well of resources when it comes to drawing my boards. Its like homework for us, especially if you're a designer of any sort - you need to observe even more because you're creating characters and development that should be caricatured from reality. Key word "caricatured"! The more you've observed the easier time you'll have when you have to create. If I don't have my sketchbook with me Ill draw on the iphone. Here are some of those observed digital faces drawn with my finger.
