    Baby Steps Up the Tall Tower

    -- Update 06/1/2010 --

    I have restarted the sketchbook, about a year later. I'm deleting the original images that introduced the thread... just because they sucked hard ) I'll try to change the first image here (and the thumbnail) periodically. The original text follows.

    I'm starting my sketchbook today. I have been lurking around the site long enough, always procrastinating about making this thread. It's been almost two years! Oh dear...

    But I've finally made up my mind! Together with updated devianart profile, I'm taking the (baby) steps to become an illustrator someday.

    My first post brings two little sketches I did this weekend. It's not much but it means something for me. I'm going to create habit!

    The first one is my sister working in her room. She didn't want to pose and thus I agreed to do a back portrait. Heh. I wonder if the fact that she was tense has been pasted on the picture... Done with pencil!

    Second one is a quick practice on light/darkness, using the simplest figures I could think of. Done with pen!

    DAWGS!

    I had this book on drawing animals lying around, which my sister gifted some time ago. I promised myself to learn some animal anatomy someday... and here I am! I wonder if its that smart to start with animals before humans... but oh well. I need a bit of everything to improve, I think. Also, it's fun to change the subject from time to time to prevent boredom

    Also a quick sketch from my fishing spot in Wow x_x
    When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw.
    She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?"

    Woah, it's been a year... a lot has happened since then!

    The most important point is that I joined ESDIP, an art school in Madrid, Spain. Consequently I moved there... and so far, so good. It's been four months since I started and finally I got myself a borrowed scanner. I'll be filling my sketchbook from now on! It's my New Year's Resolution for 2010

    Here's my last work for "Colour" class, where we're taught how to express ourselves through painting (duh!) It might appear silly to many, but I'm exploring new frontiers with this class. I had never done a full painting before.

    I started this on Christmas day, but didn't get around to finish it.
