This one took longer than I thought it would – around 45 minutes. Just playing with colour and blending.
Warm up sketches help me to experiment or try new things first thing each morning. They’re not highly detailed or finished art – I usually spend anywhere between 5 minutes and half an hour just focusing on the thing/technique I want to learn more about. When I’m busy, it’s important to me to find time to do this because I lose track of myself, especially when working to prescriptive briefs or doing a lot of copy-artist type work.
Today I’m carrying on with my domestic animals study and trying a new eye shape – around 45 mins
