There was a discussion earlier this week on twitter that was actually pretty interesting.
It was more aimed at the hobby side of things – that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to other people. It stemmed from advice we’d give to new beginners to the hobby. And it was something I agreed with; while others thought that we should compare, because that’s how we improve.
It was a great discussion and what came out of it was that there are very few people that share things they’re unhappy with.
So, I’m relating that to drawing and thought I would share some of the sketches this week that haven’t made the cut and been turned into final drawings.
I’ll probably look back on some of these sketches at some point and think ‘This one wasn’t that bad, maybe I should use it.’ but for now they’re going to go on the ‘scrap heap’ never to see the light of day again!!
I just wanted to show that while a lot of the images we make are really great, but for every one image that does make it there is a heap more that don’t. So, don’t judge yourself too harshly when something doesn’t work out the way you originally planned and don’t be too self critical; because we all make mistakes and we all have things that we aren’t proud of – it’s just we don’t tend to show the things we think are terrible all too often!
