Sketching sketches that sell

I'm more likely to do the typical fantasy illustrators "sketch" on a loose sheet of bristol board then in my sketchbook. For one, it's bigger and I like breathing room, and two, it's ready to sell when I'm done. As much as I'm kept busy with publishing commisions, I sometimes need to supplement my income with art sales through E-Bay (seller Fanvisions) or the awesome Heritage Auction galleries ( And when I do sell art, what sells best? You guessed it. Theres no question that the bare breasted fantasy female fetches better prices then anything else, and, while I can't be sure of the motivations of all the other fantasy artists who walked this road, while I do it because its lots of fun, I wouldn't if it didn't sell. More of these later, I promise ;)
