    ...Learning to draw (better late than never)...

    Hi !!!
    I'm Tonio from Spain, I have been looking conceptart's sketchbooks for a long time and I have just decided to create a profile and try to upload my sketchbook.
    I've 31 and I though that it was late for me start to draw, but I have ever wanted to learn. I'll upload my sketches as ofthen as I can. I wait comments and suggestions to learn and improve my skills (but I think I don't have any skill at the moment ).

    Thanks a lot to all.

    Hi and congratulations on your sketchbook. I know excactly how you feel about being too old even though i´m a bit younger at 26. But don´t let that discourage you and just keep on going. I´m liking your sketchbook and you´ve already taken another step in the journey of getting better by opening a sketchbook here Looking forward to seeing your progress

    I started to draw my first self-portrait last week (took me about 2 hours), I want to start to paint it as soon as possible but I am afraid about the colour theory, how to make a good flesh color, I will send the progress. (canvas 80x60 cm)

    Life to all the people!!!!!!!!!!

    It's never too late to start, all it takes is determination, hard work and of how much actual time you put in, just never give up, ever!

    Not much advice I can give you for the colur theory as I'm not very fluent in it myself. Try experimenting a little and see what works well. Generally all it takes create a caucasion tone, is some yellow, little red and white. naples yellow, cadmium red, titanium white, with occasional use of burnt umber and sienna, though remember that your not actaully painting the skin but rather the light reflected off, so dont be afraid to use mix in other tones along with the 'flesh' tones. Hope this helps.

    Some new from this weekend, I know that I need to improve everything, and it's so difficult to shade with pencil. I'll try to do it with lines next time.

    Left: some anatomy draws
    Right: anatomy plate that copied from internet (old anatomy books)

    I try to learn drawing by myself but also I go painting classes 4 hours a week, only in my free time (when my work let me do it ).
    This is my 4th oil painting, i will try to upload the last 3 that I painted.
    I took me about mmmm.... 20 hours, (I know, I am very slow.... )

    Critics and suggestions are welcome.


    And the final version !!!!!

    Starting Bridgman's studies

    I have started to study Bridgman. I haven't a lot time to draw so when I do I try to make the most of it.
    I have noticed that the legs are so difficult to draw, and looks like weird .
