    Well Tom I think you have risen to the challenge really well. It looks good and I really like the 4th panel down where you have the group of people looking to the right. Not easy at all to deal with a different culture and language but a great opportunity to pick up new skills. Onwards and ever upwards my friend.

    (p.s. thanks for your comment in my Sketchbook, very helpful.)

    Very nice Tom makes me wonder what the whole story behind it is. Good lighting and mood. Nice to see all those thumbnails as well are you thinking of painting this one as it would make a nice portfolio piece.

    blazingdimensions - haha in no way have I achieved mastery, but I'm slowly learning each day through practice. My mule-like determination is good for somethings!

    ezekrialase - thanks


    Something else I drew today from one of those thumbnails and a character from imagination: working on visualising form in different positions - Some sketches from life from the orchestra done whilst playing.

    EDIT: Just saw that you commented Marian, and yes thanks for asking - I will apply for Fall TAD in two months time and I am trying to prepare some finished pieces, or at least the sketches for the paintings for my portfolio.

    Yeah Tom we must have been posting at the same time! I really do think these last two look good, lots of story telling and mood. I'm sure they will go down well for your TAD application.

    Also well done on the musician drawings, I remember trying to draw some around Christmas and I was surprised by just how much a seated musician's move. Good job all round.

    very much inspired by your mini comic strip on the chambira. it's amazing how much this trip has influenced your work. it shows through your recent pieces that storytelling is becoming more prominent. i know you've been wanting crits but i seriously do not know what to crit on as of this moment haha. but i thank you very much for what useful words you've provided at my sketchbook and it's always greatly appreciated

    for now, just keep on going and definitely looking forward to your portfolio pieces :]

    Marian - thanks again, yeah they move like mad people! I noticed the same thing

    qlotzan- left a comment in your sb amigo

    teapo - no worries, when you get the time drop any crit dont hesitate! I know what you mean about this trip changing my sb, I've gone from still observation to motion/imagination/storytelling, and to be honest I'm loving the change! I feel like I'm finally making "pieces" rather than just observing life around me in a clinical manner

    Every time I come back to this sketchbook there's more goodies, and more varied style. With a lot of peoples work you see the same general feel through a lot of it but here one page apart can hold something completely different.


    Comics well done, they're all about leading the viewer through the pages which the layout does with the text and such well.

    kidult - no worries, and thanks

    D Art - no es tan mal, puedo decir lo que quiero decir y para mí viajar no es una problema

    JFierce - thanks for your kind words. Yeah the variation is intentional usually. I dont like to feel as if I'm stagnating, so I constantly search for new books to read, new influences and new artists' techniques to learn from. Fortunately, this site is an incredible resource to remain inspired.

    Tarsier - I'm glad you like them, I'll definitely keep posting.

    Shadow Stalker - thanks, appreciate the encouragement



    This post is everything (almost) that I've drawn in the last week...

    I've been to a museum, a zoo, the park, read the Vilppu drawing manual from cover to cover and done all the exercises suggested. Its a 12 week course and this is only 10 days work, but I feel its already made a huge difference. I'll definitely be going through the whole course again in within the next year:

    Just for Information: I would highly recommend doing the studies that I did below of the skull (pig's in this case). Although of course it can be done with almost any subject. You try to visualise the feel of the tip of your pencil on your subject then just trace a line around it. The final effect is a sort of wire-mesh, much like the ones generated by computers. The result isn't overly complex, but its interesting and really hones your perception of planes and surfaces.

    Very nice pencils man. The last sketch batch is really interesting, lots of ideas and key points to consider. It deserves long time looking at them, and I can say I learned some things, apart from the pleasure Thanks!

    ha, ha Tom that's crazy cool that you did the whole Vilpu manual in 10 days! Great to see you constantly pushing yourself like this. I love the pig skull wireframe it looks like a good exercise, shall have to add it to my list!

    Also love the Mayan sketches and the energy in the horses. Marshall Vandruff has done a free animal anatomy webinar that you might enjoy, if you haven't already seen it http://www.visualarium.com/animal-an...ebinar-replay/

    Almost a year passed since my last visit here.
    Is that possible? I was sure that you disappeared in a mist
    a long time ago, just as some of our good old friends. But it
    was a pleasant surprise to hear about you and to see that you
    were been working hard for the last months. Unbelievable progress,
    I just cannot believe what miracles you are doing with your
    traditional drawings. I especially admire the ones like these are;

    Ricardo Robles - thanks for the kind words, and yeah those studies took a lot of work, but it was amazingly useful for my own development

    sin eater - haha I hate to say it, but studies really are the foundation and you can never stop putting them down

    Sweron - I'll be honest i'm not really that interested in digital works at the moment. I like to be able to feel the pencil/brush and the surface its on. Saying that, I'm sure there will be some digital updates once I'm back in the UK!

    Divine - ha yeah *whip cracks*

    NickyBeats - thanks, I'll definitely keep posting my pencils and pens. One of the best things about this trip to SA is that I am limited to traditional mediums, which has really quickened my improvement in almost every area. Highly recommend a "digital diet"!

    Marian - thanks so much for the link, I watched the whole thing one morning when my gf was asleep (headphones are a godsend sometimes) and it really backed up some of my new mode of thinking when I draw, learnt from Vilppu.

    LtPlissken - I'm glad you like them, I'm quite proud of them myself, and there will be some more pieces to come like that when I get the time to upload (not looking soon unfortunately)

    udonhead - I'm flattered thanks.


    Right... consider this a farewell piece from me. I found the ONLY proper art shop in Ecuador today, on my last day in Quito (after being here 3 months) and it was such a blessing. I got my hands on two much needed new sketchbooks (which are double the size of my current moleskine thankfully) some ink, two nibs and some various bits and pieces.

    Now I'm off to Peru with my girlfriend, Athene (the ever patient one who often sits with me and waits as I say "Oh could we just stop a second to sketch this.... ?!"), and then afterwards on to Bolivia. I won't be able to post for a couple of months now in all likelihood, but if I get the time in an internet cafe I'll try and throw up the best pieces.

    Goodbye for now, and see you all at the start of June!

    Very cool stuff man! Love that giant post with all those sketchbook pages on post 1556!

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Glad you enjoyed the video Tom, my apologies to Athene for us artist's insatiable thirst for knowledge, which is never ending!

    This last one is very nice loose and expressive sketch. These will be so much better than photos in years to come when you look back. I wish you and Athene safe passage and good health. I look forward to June to see what you have been up to.

    That octopus creature is something.. you also have a cool selection of note-taking studies. Nice loose-shaded environments as well. Sorry, I don't recall if it's wash, or chalk, or graphite. Sometimes I have 20 tabs open on this thing, and I have to skim through sketchbooks. I'm a busy man.
    Peace!!
