I normally sketch by hand, scan the image and then work on it digitally. This is mostly because if I try to sketch digitally, I get caught up in the details and loose the overall composition. It’s also because everything looks more ”finished” on a computer screen – I spend ages working on the first idea, instead of discarding it and exploring other possibilities. That being said, I think this is the first time I GET THE DIGITAL SKETCH RIGHT. In fact, it was way better than any of the pencil ones.
I compensated my making the final image traditional. But I liked the initial sketch so much, I think I might revisit it sometime :)
