Pencil Sketches

It has been requested that I share some of my original pencil sketches here. These are from my Alice in Wonderland Characters series. The top one shows my original sketch of Alice holding the baby that has just changed into a pig. The next the Mad Hatter, and bottom the Duchess. The bottom two were literally thumbnail sketches (quite small). I find it interesting how much a drawing changes from it's beginning sketch to it's finalized illustration. Many times I fall in love with the original sketch and almost morn it because I seldom look at it again once I am finished with a drawing. Then, years later, I will have a sudden uncontrollable urge to find the sketch and look at it (prove to myself it still exists). I have become knee deep in sketches over the years so it is a matter of figuring out which container, sketch book, year I was working on it. I hope you find these drawings interesting when compared to the final drawings (previously posted), I hope you enjoy them and thank you for letting me share them with you. :)
