    Yesterday's orc with coloured. I suck with colors. Yep, I may know what's in shadow and what is lit, but everything seems plain and of the same color.

    A new version of the orc...slightly better, but far from what I can do.

    Reject-D: Thanks for your politeness... I must work TONS more on my colors and lighting


    A new version (tatooed)...getting closer to what I want, but still missing the crispness seen in so many beloved artists...

    A couple of hours ago I posted about how cool German WWII caps were, and an ink sketch I had done...but somehow it got lost. Here it is again and the painted version:

    Another quick sketch: some angry...being. Just trying to imagine how the jaw fits when it is open. Not too bad...

    Just 50 pages left to complete Bridgman's book and copy all of its illustrations. It is funny how Frazetta did the same thing some decades ago, you may check it here, with some copies of his own young hand of Bridgman.
    He says in his biography: "...I really didn't understand what he meant by 'anatomy.' So Ralph handed me an anatomy book and when I went home that night I had decided to learn anatomy. I started with page one and copied the entire book–everything, in one night, from the skeleton up. I came back the next day like a dumb kid and said, "Thank you very much, I just learned my anatomy ..." - Frank Frazetta "

    Well, I have been working lately at the academy in improving my value rendering. Just some still life, a soft pencil (a really thick one), and an eraser (an ink eraser - funny). I made a previous one so the teacher could detect my main flaws, which seem to be the clear values. I have no problem rendering darks, but light seems to not exist to me.

    So, I post here the 2nd test, as the first one was too ugly. It took about 6 hours, and well, it has some interesting things, and surely I have learnt a lot.

    In the meanwhile, Bridgman is reduced to 22 pages to go. Nice.

    Well, after happily ending my homework (aka as Bridgeman's book, which should be around 1000 drawings of anatomy), keeping on with my art classes, and drawing a couple of hours a day, what should I do next?

    First, I will try to create a small animation of a song I really love, and which I have been thinking of lately.

    After that I could try to make a portfolio as I have nothing to show yet.

    And then, well...there are many things around. I thought digital art was my choice, but now I am not so sure. Yep, both are compatible, but pencil has something my Wacom still cannot mimic...

    In the meanwhile, a sketch for a portrait of my brother I am doing right now. This little sketch is about 20x30 cms., while the "good one" is quite larger.

    The other picture is just a quick exercise my teacher told me to check my whites...as you can see the reflections are really bad, though he said I should "step to the next level", so now I am drawing a basket as seen through a glass jar. It is a pain in the a%· but makes you think a lot about values and measurements.

    If you want to get into animation I'd suggest getting two books, first is:

    Animation Survival Kit - Richard Williams

    Character Animation Crash Course - Eric Goldberg

    They'd really help with getting you acquainted with the animation principles, although you've got some of the drawing principles already done.

    Keep up the great work

    GEOXEN: Thanks a lot for the advice. I have already read Williams' bible, but still couldn't grab Goldberg's one, which looks wonderful. Well it is now in my "wish list" at Amazon, waiting for Santa (with some several other books). Nice sketchbook of yours! I envy your skills being so young, and being able to co-op at a studio so early.

    Some character tests for that music video I have been some time thinking of...

    Lost patrols

    I am trying those nice Waterbrushes (I guess that's how they are called in english), combined with a japanese caligrapher brush. You can smear the black ink with the water, or apply first the water and then the ink, or whatever you feel like. Really enjoyable... The paper suffers a lot, but that's nice too.

    Both are "Lost patrols..."

    I am painting still a glass jar and a basket behing it in acrylics. My teacher says it is going really slow and I should be more productive. But those acrylics keep on changing the colour as soon as they dry, so I have to retouch everything some times. I guess it helps to create layer after layer to the final effect of it. As soon as I finish it I'll post a photo...

    In the meanwhile here are some sketches...
    This friday is my first group sketching live nude! I cannot wait to start drawing live models...the bad part is that I may be the model, as we aren't hiring models, just drawing lots between us to see whose turn it is. I'll tell you how it goes.

    Well, somehow my previous post got lost. I was talking how bad my nude model sketching session went. The model was fine, the lighting, everything...but I just measured badly, started to crosshatch, smudged, crosshatched again, not knowing which softness of pencil to use... It was a mess. I am quite dissapointed with me right now, as I know I can do it much better. If I can take a picture of my drawing I'll post it, but it's not worthwhile. In the meantime, some colour sketches...

    Some digital colour...

    This friday's nude sketch session was great. The model was a young woman member of the group, with a wonderful pelvis. That's strange how it sounds to say that of a woman, but it was a pleasure to draw that bone.
    The first sketch didn't go too well, but I enjoyed a lot the second one, being more free and just experimenting. I'll try to post them this evening.

    In the meanwhile, two sketches from my book of sketches.

    A couple of weeks have passed since my last post. In that time I had to be the model of one of the nude sessions, and it was a quite nice experience too. Despite of my legs getting asleep after the first hour, it was interesting to see how everyone approached the drawing from the start.
    I'll post today some of the latest pictures I have created, at least the most viewable ones. Some are from my sketchbook, some are acrylic tests, and some are nudes from the friday sessions.

    I haven't been posting lately, but it doesn't mean I have done nothing related to art. I restarted my blog (http://tayete.blogspot.com) and kept on painting at the Academy twice a week for a couple of hours each, and drawing each Friday the "amateur" nudes.
    Yep, Filipino, the system is based on posing a day, and drawing the rest of the days until it is your turn to pose again (about once each three months or so)... Really entertaining, but posing is hard!!!
    Here are my latest pieces (from latest to older):

    Long time, no see...

    Well, I've been a long time without posting, but that doesn't mean I have done nothing. On the other hand, I have been drawing/painting *EVERY DAY* for two months. Hey, that''s what I was looking for.
    I am posting at my blog http://tayete.blogspot.com my slow advances in every medium I can try, but let's show here some of them:

    holy Shiite! those recent life drawings really show improvement man!
    In fact, every new piece is a step higher than your older posts.
    Seems that the long time away from CA has been beneficial since it allowed you to focus on drawing and painting.
    Welcome back man!
