    give up.

    Or stare at the canvas until I get distracted by video games.

    I draw a skeleton/stickman with the desired pose and make it about right in proportions.
    I start fleshing it out, giving him the rough shape
    Fix any outrageous proportion issues and give a more refined look.
    Start to add in some details like clothing folds and accessories
    Remove the skeleton
    Draw the hair of the character (I love drawing females because I can go crazy with the hairstyles)
    Refine and remove the sketchyness
    Reinforce the lines
    Shade
    Reinforcing the sides shadow's casted to.

    That's about how I do it when I'm not going doodling. When I doodle it's like drawing a segment at a time like so:
    1
    2
    (this guy's for a story I casually write)

    And then when I go digital
    Draw line
    Ctrl Z
    Repeat until that ONE first line looks good.
    Repeat process for other lines.
    Colouring. I take a colour and start to apply it.
    It never looks good.
    Get frustrated, Rage and quit the software.

    I'll take WIP's the next time I draw

    1) Open SAI
    2) Make the loosest sketch that is even possible
    3) BEGIN INKING, LOOKING UP REFERENCES ON THE FLY
    4) Frequently readjust pose
    5) Finish inking, add color
    6) Frequently opacity lock + colorswitch to make sure everything looks the best to me
    7) Finish, upload
    8) Lament lack of pageviews

    I have a recently-finished work, when I've got time later I'll splice all the different WIP layers into a step-by-step

    Is this thread limited to drawing or can I show step-by-steps on sculpture too?
