whenever i’m sketching to music, i typically scribble down the name of the song that comes on as i draw. so that later, i can show you guys what pushed the drawing in the direction it went. here’s what was on the corner of this one.
since i haven’t scanned anything recently, i thought i’d share some really rough sketches i made on sketchfu. had to draw after the cover of House of Hades was released…
still gonna work on this one a little more… not quite where i want it to be, but i’d forgotten to post the progress on here.

then i doodled a thumbnail.
