Behind The Scenes part 1

As a first look at the how-to-draw-a-monster part of this blog, here are the preliminary sketches for a couple of the images. They were both done pretty quickly in Sketchbook Pro (under an hour for each drawing), and luckily captured exactly what it was I was after.

The concept and the characterisation is really all I care about with these monster pictures. Rendering is easy and just a matter of time, but without that first spark of character the painting has no life, and no purpose. The sketches tell me right away if the image has what I'm looking for.
