Default step by step demonstration for character design

This I would like to more affectionately call a demonstration than a tutorial, as I'm not telling anybody what they should do when they draw, but just explain what I do when I draw, in hopes of helping ^_^.
Anyways, here's the pic for the first step. I have come to deeply believe it is important to be able to sketch out an initail idea fast and simply, THEN refine. I still focus on a single detailed head sometimes in a slump but very rarely do I start a picture this way. That said, on to the pics.




on the last two, let it be noted I don't spend much time on the clothing outlines or folds at all, I draw them both Quickly, again, to capture flow.

Good one. Mostly I just think it's good that it shows that one has to be patient and methodical about one's art.

great job on this nekonei. Very detailed yet simple and easy to understand. It's always good to see how others go about doing there stuff.
The character looks cool too, although his hair is a bit like the dude from a flock of seagulls. lol
Nice job

Do you use a light box to draw? I was wondering how you manage to draw the same image again and again.

I need to applause not only because your sketch is great (as usual ) but because I know how boring it is to scan step by step.
Nice work !!!

Yes, a lightbox is a machine with a milk glass top that shines light through but not directly, so one can trace drawings easily. It's supposed to be easy to make yourself and I've been asking Santa for one since I was eight.

I want to be as good as you Bakanekonei! my people look like action figures left in the microwave too long.
