I did graph it out, so I was basically drafting his sketch. I would call it cheating.
I find it very difficult to sit down and just draw from my own mind most of the time. I can draw other people's characters without hesitation, but it's an exercise in frustration to try to draw an original.
I think this is because I have so many artists that I admire with vastly differing techniques that it has become jumbled for me, making it very challenging to have a style of my own. The ACEO's I've been posting are as close as it gets to freeform. It's still someone else's character, though.
