Here's a couple of drawings from the past few days. They start out as scribbles and shapes and then I try to turn them into something. This is a Daniel Boone/Davy Crockett type guy, in marker.
Here's a king and a jester. The king started as three circles (like a snowman), the jester was an afterthought.
I like doing this stream-of-consciousness type drawing. It's fun just to draw something without "trying" to draw anything. Many of the drawings you see on this blog are done that way. I don't start with a specific idea, I just let my "little dot go for a walk"
