sai doodles. mostly my own projects, with a mako thrown in.
I’ve got one character in my satsuma project who I haven’t managed to draw right yet. I know what I want him to look like, the trouble is getting him to mesh with the style I’m drawing everybody else in.
So I tried to draw him, and messed up, then drew the other characters to see what shapes I was already using, tried him again, messed up again. Thought about some styles I was using for other projects, sketched those.
Sketched him in my most detailed style (I hesitate to call it realistic or naturalistic because it’s still heavily stylized), then sketched him in a very simplified cartoony style. Started trying to hit somewhere in between, paying extra attention to wide eyes, sharp cheekbones, and pointy nose.
More of the same, getting closer on some.

Normally I’d keep drawing until I get it right, but it’s already almost 3am and I don’t want to be totally dead on my feet tomorrow :U
