    I agree with iambanana. I really like how you construct your figures. You make constructing a figure look so easy. I should practice this approach more. Very inspiring how you keep pushing yourself. Thanks for sharing.

    Great stuff, andres. To further what Dug was saying, I'd say the biggest thing is work on perspective in your drawings. Certain things seem to not line up correctly in space and relation to other parts in your drawings and it would really benefit you to study as much perspective as you can in conjunction with your anatomy. Keep it up!

    I really like the brush strokes on these pieces, though they do get a bit blurry sometimes, but it gives a good effect nonetheless. Is it a custom brush? if so could you please let me know how you made it? (or if its downloaded a link .

    Tbh the only thing I can crit about is how the strokes get a bit blurry, otherwise theres some real great stuff here.

    Replies in your corresponding sb's

    This is another tribute to another very influential person in my life..I'm glad I found about Darren Yeow (magicman in these forums) when I was 18..his insights helped me to do lots of growing up, to have faith in myself and to try to have a life of meaning rather than a life by default.

    Check out his stuff at http://stylus-monkey.com/! you won't regret it!

    So here's the artwork and yes he's about to eat a spider lol XD

    you are starting to get it dude. i would suggest pulling back from digital for a sec and start learning how to ink your lines so that you have better lines to work from. THat way you can paint inside of selections and masks. your edges will be easier to control that way.

    Hiya...been a while since I could visit. Diggin the portraits on the last page. Love the wonky expression on yer self portrait.

    Thanks for another "process" animation on the figure on the last page too.

    Lovin' the scary concept above! The tarantula feels just right and you took on a difficult pose with all that foreshortening in the figure. There are some issues there with muscles and proportion though...especially across the back, chest and shoulder girdle...and the lighting kind seems to come from all over...but as I say that's a difficult pose

    No nitz on the spider which is well rendered and lit and...I like the way you use blur/low detail to give it energy and motion.

    I checked out Darren's site...really cool artwork there. I'll bookmark it and give it a serious look asap...thanks!

    Buen trabajo Andres... desde que estas practicando esos estudios de anatomía ciertamente se nota el cambio, las poses y el trabajo en general esta adquiriendo un aspecto mucho más sólido y realista. Un saludo, y buena suerte para el 2012!

    As some of you know, my hand and wrist had been hurting for the past 6 months or so. As the condition didn't seem to disappear simply with resting and taking my time I decided to seek medical professional advice.

    I went to at least 4 or 5 different doctors because I wasn't 100% convinced with any single one of their diagnosis. I was told that I had from Quervain's, to Carpal Tunnel, and even Osteoarthritis (which was the most mindless diagnosis of them all, I must object)

    Finally I came across a more reliable doctor that did numerous tests before actually concluding something, and that's how I discovered that I have a tendinitis of the Hypothenar eminence and Dupuytren's contracture on my thumb. Even though both of my conditions are not highly developed, rehabilitation is indeed going to be slow and I'd be forced to cut off most if not all of my drawing for an undefined period.

    At a previous point in my life I was struggling with overcoming my situation and trying to fulfill my ambitions of getting proper education, studying abroad, getting better at drawing, dropping out of my shitty university and make a living out of my greatest passion, in essence I was trying to take my potential to its maximum, be successful (success: accomplishing most of your life's checklist without trading dreams for mediocrity, while at the same time keeping a balance of mind, body, spirit and relationships) and hopefully be as happy as I could be. Nowadays though, at the age of 20 I'm just fighting permanent damage of my hand. And this is how my career as a commercial artist finished before it even started.

    My intention is far from portraying myself as a victim (they say "one reaps what one sows" and I believe that's true), I wanted to share my experience so hopefully you get something positive for your own personal journeys, and appreciate what you already have and sometimes take for granted. So here goes my advice for you guys:

    Protect your dreams and work passionately to accomplish them without stepping back because you never know when you will run out of a specific resource (e.g. health). Who knows it might well be the case that health is a privilege granted only to those brave enough to make out of their lives something that goes beyond the mediocre status quo. Take nothing for granted not even your own passion for art or for something else.

    I wish I could confidently say that I did my best, that I did all I could but deep inside of me I know that I didn't and that I cowardly steeped back way too many times. Harsh but true. I believe being honest gives me the right to walk out of here at least with a tiny bit of honor.

    I want to thank everyone that took the time to stop by my sketchbook. I wholeheartedly wish you the best in all your endeavors.

    //Andrés

    Hi! I'm sorry to hear about your struggles with your hand and wrist. I don't think you portrayed yourself as a victim at all...and sharing what you're going through and your advice about chasing wholeheartedly after your dreams will help a lot of people here.

    If I read your post correctly it is possible you may have a full recovery in time. I hope that happens for you.

    At 20, even if it takes years of rehabilitation, you are still young enough that you could return to your passion for creating art in time. Many people, myself included, got a very late start at it...but still am finding enjoyment, fulfillment, passion and even some income from it.

    As for stepping back at times...we all do...so I hope you'll never feel regret about that!

    I hope what ever happens you'll have a fulfilling, happy life!

    Hey Andres that really is a shame but I am glad that you have at last found out what is wrong. I to had to give up a career due to health problems and as you say health is something we often take for granted, especially when young.

    I hope you are able to make a good recovery and find a way to keep your dreams and passions alive. Take good care.

    Just because u cant sprint doesnt mean you cant finish the race. Art is about more than sheer out-put. MAybe this isnt a problem. Maybe you can view this as an opportunity to help you achieve a higher creative end.

    Just be optimisistic in the face of adversity. There isnt a single successful person who didnt face atleast some great challenge.

    Ouch, man. That sucks. But don't be too hard on yourself. You're a stellar draftsman already, and 20 is really, really young. Don't write your dreams off just yet. You have plenty of time to come back from this and return to kicking ass. Time is working for you on this, not against you.

    Frazetta had a stroke and lost the use of his painting hand... so he taught himself to paint with his other hand. You can't keep a legend down, and you're on your way to becoming one. Take a break, but don't give up.

    sorry to hear that man.
    You're 20 brother, you're just getting started.

    As shitty as this seems, maybe it can evolve into something unexpectedly awesome for you artistically. That might sound like bullshit but keep pushing your craft in other ways that doesn't hurt your hand more and I bet you'll surprise all of us. You still have a brain and the study of art, content of your ideas, and the content of your character can do tons for your artistic growth to continue right now. That might sound like some bs, but fuck man, I hope you can find some solid perspective that will help you continue to push on alongside the rest of us here.
