I wonder if it bites...

Tuesday, 23 November 2010

I haven't post for a while. So here's my first attempt at the Chow competition of this past week on the site. I didn t have much time and I did really bad on this one, so in the end, i just threw a shameless lens flare right in the middle so no one could stare at it for long :D so here's 'Atomic, the man of the Atom', or, like his wicked enemies call him, here's 'Mr Golden Pants'.

This one is a frustration. I don't like to leave them halfway but I really want to work on a certain style right now, and this one is delaying me a bit. I should be working on something else. I'll leave this one as it is and I'll probably come back to it later. So for now, this is a work in progress.

I'm going fairy tale :S One more step towards one of the things I want to do well.

YEYY!!! - 100th POST!!! - It's almost a year since I started this blog and I'm quite happy to see how much I upgraded my drawing and my painting skills since. Although it is still far away from where I want to get, the progress is happening and that's what I want most. That, and to enjoy the ride :D I have to thank all my friends that help me to progress, specially Ben Ho that always find time to give me some wisdom. ROCK ON!! Anyway, my birthday was last Sunday and me and my girlfriend went to the river and did some canoeing with some friends at night. The moon was there, millions of stars, and it felt like it should always be. So yeah, this one is cheesy all the way :D :D :D

I'm quite happy with this one, mostly because it was made in about 2 hours :D

And here's something I want to start trying more often. Weird but enjoyable.
More thumb tries. Not as good as the previous one I think, but I'm trying to do stuff that I'm not confortable with, so is all good I guess. I do think the one from the top is an improvement from the lower one. Have to keep going.

Not happy at all with this one. Too much time and too much work for a not so good result :S have to do more exercises.

These next pages are from a comic book I was doing some years ago and that never got finished. I was going through the old stuff and decided to colour one page just for the fun of it. I think some of my drawing was better then. I think the colouring is not a good one but I don't really know how to make it better. Any tip is welcome.

Some enviroments sketchs trying some new technique. I wish I could get better at this stuff:S

just a layout sketch. have to do more.

Inspired by a friends work. Amazing what just being around creative people can do for me.

just trying a new aproach. this is just a bad doodle. why do I keep forgeting that without a good drawing as a base there's no such thing as a good painting.

I should try a couple of these per day to see if I can improve this kind of thing because right now they suck. I do them thumbnail size.

The background leaves me frustrated. But I wanted to finish it in one day so, here it is as it is.

Wednesday, 12 May 2010

Another sketch from the last few days that got a bit pretentious and made me finish it off. Like in the previous one I just tried to fill in the background.
I don't think that it is as good as the previous two or three. It just started as a sketch and then I kinda forced myself to finish it. I have to get used to plan more what I'm going to paint.

One more step on the long road. At least I think I'm understanding better what I have to do. Even if I'm unable to do it :)
It would take me day and a half more or less if I had done it in one go. It's still too much time for something like this, but at least I think I'm improving a bit, and I guess I understand better the process. Anyway, it's not that good but I think it's a good effort. If I knew how I would try to work more on a few things that I think are missing, like humidity and texture (I would say).

It seems I revisited my love for old Sci-Fi book covers. I'm still trying to find new ways or methods to develop my drawing from a sketch phase to something a bit better. Although I haven't polished this one, I really like it because it turned out better than what I was expecting. This one goes for my friend Ben Ho who is always encouraging everyone he knows.

I've been trying some new ways of thinking about painting. The mountains are very sketchy but I think it's better than what I used to do. I've tried to approach it the same way I do when I'm copying photos. The soldier is one of the first tries in a method that looks more like colouring. I left the lines just to remind me that I need to have more definition in my paintings. Can't have them looking like this.

More exercises. I have to start trying some environments from my imagination just to see if these are helping.
