Know what you’re draw­ing

Gather ref­er­ence! Build a mood board for what­ever it is you’re de­sign­ing. It can be com­posed of any­thing that in­spires you for this par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter or se­ries. Yet be­fore you even start sketch­ing, write down a one-line de­scrip­tion for each char­ac­ter. This forces you to de­cide on the most im­por­tant aspects of the de­sign you’re about to draw. For this pro­ject I also used key­words for ev­ery fac­tion I was de­sign­ing. Words like rust, steam and rev­o­lu­tion helped me stay in­spired and con­sis­tent as I came up with vari­a­tions on a theme.
