Usually I try to avoid doing the same sketch twice. This time however I did the same sketch three times. Each time changing it a bit, just enough to make it different enough for me to not feel i was repeating the same trick over and over.
Looking back at these three variations i feel they are different enough from each other. But at the time when I was doing these, I had convinced myself I was just repeating lines.
i still prefer working from a new sketch but by doing the same sketch three times I liked that i could refine a sketch more and more untill it was to my liking completely.
There’s always that one piece where you wished you could have done a connection different, where you missed a highlight or when you were hungover too much to paint something decent.
