Roughs and WIP’s

Just more stuff I’ve been working on. So much of the early thumb-nailing and roughs are pencil on paper, and I have such a mediocre phone camera, and such laziness when it comes to actually using my very capable scanner, that I end up never digitally consolidating these sketches unless they’re going to be developed.

My Pinterest has been enthusiastically throwing increasingly more fantastical rocky landscapes at me, and I’ve been pinning them all and working my […]
