Character Design

Character sketch

Been busy with a nasty cold…wanted to post here to show a little progress.

I usually start out with a rough idea in my head about the traits of the character I have in mind…I may have no name in mind for such a character, I may only have a name in mind for a character, I may have nothing of the kind…it’s when I hit the board that I really get going, because I rarely have a preconceived idea of what I want a character to look like.

I’m not going to lie…my second favorite part of any book is this part (sketching, brainstorming, etc.). The only thing better is seeing it finished. It’s nice to see pages completed as they come along, but the real creative meat and potatoes is this point of the quest.
