Sincere question here, do any of you have difficulty seeing or understanding details in the sketchier pictures?
Yes. It also makes response a little difficult because it's very unclear what's a mistake and what's a temporary artifact of the sketching progress.
I recently got addicted to sketches and wound up making a unilateral decision to ink everything I did just to get me out of the habit. Been really paying off as far as arting goes, check my recent gallery.
By and large it worked because this community has common interest in understanding how other human beings think in conjunction with a shared amusement at watching other humans inflict suffering on themselves for entirely delusional reasons.
