Concept to Illustration by ChristmasSocks Concept to Illustration by ChristmasSocks
I do these little pre-sketches for most of my illustrations. Most of them are for compositional purposes so don't contain any design detail. Thought you might find them interesting ^^

Link to the finished illustrations in order:

It's good to see you don't just get these awesome compositions right on and that you have to make studies first. because seeing art as yours, it seems so easy, but creating a good piece is in fact quite hard.

great sketches, very interesting to see your process

It's always interesting to see what lies beyond an artist's finished work :) Quick composition sketches are always fun to do!

Its really cool of you to post this. Its kinda reminding us newbies that even the pros do some little sketching before making a super cool work of art.
as for me, it gives me a sense of hope XD
those pictures are really great, from the beginning till the end!

Awesome sketches! It's good to see artists as talented as you make sketchy peliminary drawings too. I think they're a greats way to plan out a perfect drawing.
