If you can draw yourself as a star wars character, the real question isn't why would you, but why wouldn't you.
The great thing about drawing is that even when you are screwing around instead of doing work you can always just call it practice. "Oh, this my little pony/ghengis khan bubble bath fanart? Just honing my craft."
Not a bad deal.
A little warm-up sketch to get loose. I am trying my best to put up quick little things like this a few times a month. These don't really have to be pretty finished pieces, just a sort of art stream of conciousness. It would be really sweet if Sketchbook Pro could just auto upload to squarespace, but maybe I should just stop being lazy and upload everything I draw in there onto this blog. Baby steps though.
I'm really enjoying these synthetic brushes in SB pro. Each stroke feels unique, something that is very much lacking with other digital brushes. And no cleanup required. What's not to like?
