This is the same sketch as yesterday’s ‘KenKen’ but developed further. I had been admiring Rosin Cure’s use of white space in her sketches and was practicing including more white space in mine. However, in yesterday’s sketch it gave the look of daylight or bright light rather than white space in a late night setting. In addition, I just did not like the look of the soluble purple line. So today I took a lot of colored pencil and some marker to it thinking I could strengthen a look of late night relaxation. I also cropped it hoping to develop a warmer tone. In the end I gave up my goal of using white space and instead strengthened the notion of a relaxing late night game, I think.
My deliberate practice goal for the coming week will be using white space, line and a very limited set of colors, much like Rosin Cure. The purpose will be to sketch strong images that clearly communicate a message.
