This week I have some loose sketches. Some using reference others without. Most of this week I spent a good amount of effort looking into intent with sketches, I will consolidate more of my thoughts in a more flushed-out post in the future. For now, I feel that I am running into a new type of blank page wall. Instead of being stopped at the blank page I get past that to start sketching, but I'm lacking the purpose for what I'm drawing. From what I've discovered there are two forms of intent when sketching characters.
1. Technical Intent
2. Character Intent
Technical intent - the purpose of the practice is to improve a technical skill as an artist.
Character intent - the emotion or action the talent is performing in the sketch.
These sketches are still a bit ambiguous but less so than last week's post.
