First Sketches Before The Drawing
I have to admit, I’m excited. Watching an artist take an idea and change it into a concrete image is fascinating.
Here are the first sketches to iron out details before the artist begins the drawing. First the artist sent an overall preliminary drawing to hone in on details.
We had more back and forth about details, especially the face and hair. Here’s the second sketch.
If you are planning on publishing your narrative fiction, especially historical fiction, working with an artist is a great practice to set the details in your head so you can communicate with the artist.
