    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.

    Twan Thanks! I'll try spending more time on those details. After all, they give the head more personality.

    mpdpsy Cheers! More coming right up!

    Below you'll find my very first and second attempt to inking. The first is a pencil drawing of the great great late Weiringo and all I attempted was not breaking it too much! Second is a page of my own comic in progress...

    great stuff! drawing from life is certainly working out for you!

    some pieces seem a bit flat still, maybe you could have a look at construction of shapes to give them a bit more volume. there's great stuff by Bridgman, Loomis, and Hogarth that'll really make your drawings jump off the page

    awesome inking! Is this understood if it's really you draw the lines or Weiringo .? anyway the illustation is really beautiful.
    the drawing with the explosion is good, you had to make a drop shadow on the flower Keep it up

    @Twan: The pencil is Weiringo's. And yeah! All credit goes to him
    @ArteJuan Cheers!!!
    @NeonDuck Thanks! Actually I have Vonderpoel's book on anatomy picking up dust on my shelf. I'll give it a second chance soon indeed.
    @mpdpsy Thank you! The background is a bit... ehh.. It's about a renegade mutant that teams up with a mutant-killer to get rid of the (guess it) mutants. Storywise is crap, since each page is a different assignment by my comics teacher. He says "ok next page is gonna be fight" and I have to make ends meet so the story is somewhat credible. I'll be posting the fight pages this week.

    Here comes more metro sketching and another anthromorph!

    Hey Ihazar, you have some really nice stuff in here. I especially like the owl drawing you made. And for a first (and second) attempt at inking, yours ended up looking really nice :>

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work

    Armonah Cheers, you can be certain I will be posting more animals and inks soon. I've done quite a few since the ones I posted here - they're still at school.

    Twan Thanks for your input! The limbs are pretty woobly in general, I need to get serious with'em!

    Here's some Vanderpoel studies
