Apart from honing one's skills, sketching allows for a freedom of expression in experimenting with shadow and form, line weight, and color to produce work that can creatively rival the finished art. Exposed and unbridled, the international cast of artists included in the second volume of Sketching Times are masters of the craft of illustration that can create a world of feeling or depth with a
few simple strokes. Captivating in their simplicity, they remind us of the importance of essence in determining a work's impact. Inspiration for comic artists, animators, and game designers alike, this book covers a wide range of subject matter from human characters and caricatures, to animals, fantastical creatures, robots, and more.
