The page on the bottom (yay scrap paper) shows overthinking. Then I started listening to the Glen Keane podcast and he's talking about emotionally connecting to his drawing.
After that I did the page on top. I like that much better. It's important not to take the drawing out of context. it's not an analytical drawing on its own, but a dog (in this case) that i have to bring to life. That's the approach that really speaks to me.
Plus, I'm growing a little more confident with my lines.
