Here’s a quick 1-hour study I did yesterday of a vintage photo. I usually don’t post sketches and studies, but I’ve realized lately that all of the work which goes into honing an artistic skill is largely lost and not publicly understood. Yet, this constant practice is just as important to who I am as an artist as my finished pieces. I practice my craft every day, whether it’s a quick study, some loose concept sketches, or working towards a finished piece.
I always feel such pressure on Instagram to only post things that are polished and finished, and I’m hoping that posting sketches/studies more often will lessen this perfectionism in me.
Swipe to see a close up, as well as the original photograph I studied. This was done digitally on the procreate app. 🥀#digitalsketchbook #procreateapp #portraitstudy #vtartist #vermontartist
