Cartoon Roughs

Some of the best drawings I do never get to go to print. These drawings are called "Roughs".
They range from very quick thumbnail sketches hastily scribbled to visualise a gag idea. To a
more carefully drawn sketch that will later be traced and inked as the finished cartoon.

Below are some examples, Enjoy.

Roughs are often drawn very fast in the hope that this will help capture a sense of action you
want your finished cartoon to have.

- Roughs take only seconds to draw.
- Doing the final inking over the top of the pencil rough take a lot longer.

However, sometimes a rough is drawn many times and rubbed out many times before I get it
the way I want it.
