I've been wanting to start taking my practice sketches in a more creative direction. I usually practice from photos, but I want to start using the photo as a starting point and adding in a more fantastical element. Here's a first attempt. Below is the original photo, as usual from Jimmy Palmiotti's super fun blog. The cell phone turns into a prop gun so easily!

Practice sketch: 2 women jogging

Today I finally forced myself to steal 45 minutes when I should have been working and do a practice sketch! I guess I haven't done any personal work all summer, but in the meanwhile my technique has been evolving a great deal in my professional work. It's ironic--though typically self-defeating--that I stopped doing personal stuff just as I started developing the tools to do something more interesting with it.
