The same is true for paintings. Whenever I'm asked to do a custom painting I always start with a sketch to make sure the customer and I are on the same page. Once the drawing is approved, I get 'er painted up and no many how many times I go through the process I still love seeing the before and after shot at the end.
For instance, you can go from hand-colored sketch to nice looking piece of art (if I do say so myself):
From an idea in a notebook to a wall-sized triptych that is now the highlight of Lil' Dillon's room.
From a basic scribble to a full-blown stadium.
From outline to outstanding....ya, I just said that.
