Ever wonder where all of those highly imaginative and fantastical characters, creatures, vehicles, and landscapes are derived from? Those that are prominently featured in genres of fantasy and science fiction, video games, television & movies, book covers, graphic novels and comics all began with an idea and a simple pencil sketch! Sketching has been used by generations of artists as a way of quickly capturing the ideas they visualize and imagine. It is the first step in the process of planning out final concepts, compositions and images. Sketches and drawings have been, and are still today, the foundation of all great fantasy and science fiction art.
