To be LOOSE in drawings -
As a designer, you first need to know a sketch is like a process tool to communicate your creative ideas with clients, and is not like a final painting that will be framed. So you should have a license to destroy it, experiment it so clients can understand it clearly. If you screw up, it is just a sheet of paper and not your life. So you need to be LOOSE in attitude, then your drawings will become better automatically. If you are too tight, it means you treat your drawing like a piece of art, that is why. - Mike Lin

[TIP] Add a quick sky color to give rigor and vibrancy to your sketches. It allows your vignette to be "finished" without having to go into much detail with pen or other colors and textures. Just make a photocopy of your original sketch, then add color directly onto paper. It's that simple, and very effective!
