Looking at my own personal sketchbooks, especially my recent ones, I’ve found they’re very plain. I need a serious upgrade in my recording skills to feel like I’m getting the best out of the projects I do.
How does one improve a sketchbook? Since they’re such a personal object, a form of recording likened to a diary or a journal, how do you upgrade something so individual? I feel like that is going to be a difficult question to answer, but knowing my weaknesses to work on and develop, to finally feel like I’m really growing as an artist, it’ll certainly be worth it.
So, my question is to other artists. How do you start? How do you record your ideas and art? How to do critique yourself to develop further? How do you keep your sketchbooks? Any answers would be appreciated.
