    Siroilas Sketchbook

    Hello everyone

    I have this dream of being able to tell stories using the comic book medium. This last year I've just decided to move my skills from an below average level to a good one. I know it's going to take Time and Hard Work. But the game is ON! So please, leave comments, critics, anything that you think it might help me to make this dream come true.

    This sketchbook is mostly an effort from ME to keep MYSELF in check! I want to post at least something every day. I want to work one day for the French/Belgium Bande Dessine market, doing my own books and make a living with it. Too ambitious? Yes I think it is. It's going to take a while? I don't mind if it does. I just want to keep improving and improving and have fun with it meanwhile.

    So, Thank you in advance for any comment you leave, and Welcome to my first digital Sketchbook

    Here's my small efforts for today. I did a couple of 30 sec poses from posemaniacs (I do them on my wacom because I find really hard to draw in it, So I have to do it.) Then I tried some poses of my own, each 2m30. Then there's some drawings I did from photos, and finally I did a painting study from a photo. Please do leave some advice or critic. Thanks.

    Here's my stuff for today. Some 30 sec poses from posemaniacs. Two drawings from photos (I tried to do these as much detail as I can. But my main goal is to understand better values and textures), and a painting I finally finished.

    Hey dude! Rock on! Good to see you here Studies are looking great! Keep those up like you have before cause thats the sure way to learn my friend. That photo study in the first post looks like a big improvement! Keep doing these regularly!
    The digi paint at the end is pretty cool too! Dont forget about atmospheric perspective and soften the edges on the horizon and maybe create a gradient around there where u can see the sky/ sea fades off to so we get more depth. Keep rocking cause I'll be keeping an eye in here!

    Thanks Ben! As you know, and if you don't know I'm telling you now, you are one of the friends that inspire me to keep going and not quit EVER! I hope you'll leave loads of critics here too

    Here's a couple of drawings from photos and a painting I was working on and just got fed up with.

    I'm trying to experiment with a different process. I would like to be able to colour my drawings more than do paintings. But I guess I ll have to get better at drawing first

    Really nice start to your SB. Sketches look really cool and that underwater scene is great, great colors. But the colors in the landscapes is a little monotone.

    @DonovanGonzalez - Thanks! I find them really useful to try to exercise imagination. Please, any critique is welcome

    @jskotte - Thanks! I wish I knew a bit more on how to work on that underwater scene. I think it has potential but I'm way out of my league trying to understand how light and colour works there. Please do keep droping by.

    I had a couple of days without updating, so here's one update. Some time ago I had a couple of characters and an idea for a story. I decided to bring them back and these are two sketches I did just to help me get the feeling back for the story. I'll probably work more on this idea in the next weeks.

    Ugh, man, I truly love those environments. I'm a sucker for a beautiful landscape, and I would be more than happy to go trekking through any area that looked like those.

    I think the top right and the waterfall in the center/bottom left are my favourites. The dreamy sort of morning palette used in the middle right is really great, too.

    @Arbor - Thanks To be honest I'm a bit glad with these environments because I'm not that good at doing them. Actually the very next day I've tried to repeat the process and everything came out really bad. Anyway, I'll keep trying of course. Thanks for your comment.

    These next pages are from a comic book I was doing some years ago and that never got finished. I was going through the old stuff and decided to colour one page just for the fun of it. I think some of my drawing was better then. I think the colouring is not a good one but I don't really know how to make it better. Any tip is welcome.
