There’s an adage that 10,000 hours of practice is what’s required to become a master. While that is more of an incentive for persistence than a qualitative truth, there is something to be said for putting maximum hours into something you love. The pages below are a collection of my sketchbook over the course of nine days. A mix of observational drawing from life, television frames, notes on feedback, slow/rapid/contour drawing, and character designs. Practice makes perfect. Practice also fuels the passion. Win-win.
