sketches aren't supposed to be good or bad. They are just getting the idea of something down. Too many people put pressure on sketches being amazing or perfect the first time. A sketch is not a drawing and a drawing is not a sketch. They are different things. A sketch can turn INTO a drawing, yes, but for me, that is very rare. Usually I will do many many sketches, revise the composition and draw it over and over until I get a sketch I like. Most of the first ones turn out to something I don't like though. That's the point of sketching, to work out your idea, not make a perfect image. :p Sometimes it takes 5-10 sketches to get the right idea.

yeah i mean if i were to sketch to get the general idea they tend to be messy as shit and as a whole i dont care. It's just hard to get the feeling for how a drawing will look if you can't sketch it right. and even in the rough stage if i can, it's the detailed sketch that's hard [my sketches are insanely detailed to make linearting easier] but erm,  I can't draw the details and i knw this is down to my antomy and the thing is i know when something looks wrong but now how to make it look right >.< god damn it! So if i did like 10 mion sketches I'd never complete any artwork because the sketch would just look like shit and the imagry for the picture wouldn't be clear at all.

I do more sketches than finished work... especially 'cause I need ages to sketch something and I never have time to finish what I sketch !!!! :lol:
But I also do alot of pose or design studies, and sometimes I post them. =) If they're not too much failed...

all my drawings are based on sketches, often I just leave the outline as the sketch itself. I sketch a lot although I don't post most of it.

I make lots and lots of sketches and then put them in sketchdumps ^^ I need to work on doing more finished pieces, really. But I like seeing sketches from other artist. LiLaiRa's dumps are my favorite part of her gallery.

I'm the same, I really need to work on finishing works and focusing on that instead of tons of sketches that go unused.

I never like my finished work nearly as much as sketches (there's science behind this) and love seeing process work by others.

I feel the same. ;-; Sketches look better to me in my work too. Seeing process work is the best!
