I think I have narrowed down a theme for this years sketch book! It's a mixture of a few different ideas I've had combining into one. It's going to be a magic market, with trolls, goblins, and gnomes selling enchanted trinkets to the residents of Fablewood. Starting off with some of the primary sketches for a sly goblin vendor.
It started with some figure gestures to get the personality of the character down. Some are more approachable while one is more sinister. Once I get the figure down, I'll start to add details to the costume and explore who this character might be.
