Writing Group Sketches Galore
The way writing group works is thirty or so people listen to someone read part of a story or novel and then offer critique. I tend to sketch while I listen, jotting my critiques at the top of the page so I don't forget them. Each session is about two and a half hours long with various people reading, so I end up filling lots of pages with doodles. Here are some of the pages from last night. The first two pages and the last page show a little of my thought process when working on a character design.
I wanted to post this when I got home, but we hadn't eaten dinner yet and were hungry... and then it was midnight.
I'm hoping to bring my graphic novel to the writing group for critique, but it's going to be a challenge. The entire critique hinges on the authors reading their story aloud, and well, I'm not sure how to 'read' a graphic novel to people :)
