A lot of my work starts with me sketching out the basics of a scene, character or game element. I go through several (and sometimes many!) variations until I have created a feeling of what is happening in the scene or different things a character is going through. I explore the way a scene moves at different times of day and how a character reacts with other characters. These things all help me to form a complete picture and story in my head so I can then create the final scene or game character.
