I didn't usually draw sketches before making a figurine, but I realized that doing sketches let me be more focused on what I should make. Most of the time I used to change over and over the style of my creations for not to have an idea established.  If you have a problem to focus while making something, you can draw your ideas and it's going to help you so much. This drawing was made by my boyfriend and I only drew the cat's faces ᕙ(^▿^-ᕙ)
