I didn't blog Monday because I couldn't think of anything to blog about. So, I sketched, and it was productive. I realized two things: I'm rusty, and I need to improve my illustration style. I don't draw badly, but the anatomy looks horrible after so long not drawing much. The second realization is a little trickier. I know the only way to improve my style is to draw anything and everything I can, and it will come of its own accord. You can try to teach style, but it's best to come into it naturally. My style has always been strong, but I don't like it as much as I used to. Style does change over the years, but the more you explore different styles, the more you can adopt your own.
While sketching I also listened to a lot of upbeat music, including these three songs that always make me want to draw characters in motion.
