Sketching and finding inspiration

Hello everyone and welcome back!

Today I want to share with you this sketch I’ve done yesterday and some thoughts. I was looking for inspiration since three days and I’m sure all of you know how frustrating can be when you want to draw something but you don’t know what! In this case, what I do is … draw. I put the pencil on the paper and look what comes and normally I don’t like what I’ve done, but it helps. After this I’m ready to draw something better, so I search for a beautiful foto and I draw the subject. I often find beautiful inspiring pics on deviantart, note that I always use royalty free fotos and link to the author (even if I only take inspiration from this photo, I think it is a sort of respect to the author).


By the way, this art of sketching is very usefull not only to find the inspiration, but also to exercise and improve your skills (sketching and drawing, but also for better anatomy knowledge) and at least to have some references for an artwork when you need them.

If you are interested in seeing the whole sketching process, look at the video on my youtube channel

Thanks to the beautiful model Chumberstock for  the inspiration 🙂

Let me know if you like my sketch with a comment … and even if you don’t like it, good critics are always welcome!

Thanks for reading!
