    Hey guys. Here’s a sketchbook related question…

    Do you guys draw fully completed drawings in your sketchbooks (w/pen, ink, markers, colours) or rough sketches (hands/ eyes, lips, poses etc)?

    I do what ever comes to mind. Sometimes its just a quick doodle or i’ll sometimes start something not like it and leave it.

    I hear ya. I usually aim for completed drawings BUT a third of my pages ends up being doodles, notes and chicken scratches. Since I hate wasting good paper, settle on buying 60 lbs (89g) sketchbook paper instead of my ideal 100lbs (160g).

    My sketchbook is almost entirely layouts and process for my works in progress. I very very rarely get time to just sit and doodle, and when I have that time I’m rarely around a sketchbook so those sketches end up on post-its or whatever scraps are about.

    So… my sketchbook is an ugly mess, but interesting if you were ever curious what my comics spawned from.
