A few days ago I was struggling with ideas for new illustrations. I couldn’t come up with a good composition for a piece and had to take a break. I pulled out some toned paper and just started drawing. I haven’t drawn a troll in a while, not even in my sketchbook. I let my hand guide the drawing instead of over thinking of what I was doing. Over thinking tends to be a killer and creates doubt before pencil even hits paper. This drawing really helped crush the art block I was having. And now I have 4 illustrations in the works all at different stages.
