What is basic sketching?

A bit like a story. Each one of your characters has a backstory, and is a living, breathing person. Every single time your character changes, you have to go back to the past, and create your version of the character.

As we’re drawing in, you want to think about what you’ve learned from the past sketches, and how the story will be affected by them. If you’ve learned something about the past character, now is also a great time to add to that knowledge. Just think about the things you know about a character and try to make them an addition to that. This is especially important for characters that are a bit unique in your mind.
