These incredible J.C. Leyendecker sketches show how he studies every part of his illustration. He even makes a study of the water on the floor. Although each individual sketch seems to be a perfect painting on its own, Leyendecker was obvously searching for the best way to depict his idea. A valuable lesson I learn from these sketches is to ask myself : "How can I do better?" I don't want to sit back and relax, because are always ways to improve. Check different possibilities to find the best result. Different color keys, different angles, different shapes etcetera. When you ask yourself honestly : "How can I do better", you eventually will do better.
