Hello to everyone! Well, I've been drawing for some time now but just now decided to get my job into such a great community like this one to receive criticism and to become a better artist! Or at least try to be an artist first... XD
I'm 19, live in Mexico and studying something between animation and programming... which at times get me quite mad, anyways. I'm just hoping to get to know many other artists, learn from them as well as to learn how to keep an online sketchbook up to date and avaialble for me an others to see how much I improve.
Now, I'll be showing of first what I've done the past couple of weeks. It's not too much of a study work since I have not too much idea on how to start. That's another reason why I'm here! I would love to hear some nice ideas on which kind of stuff is better to work on when trying to become a professional illustrator or designer.
That said, here you go! Thumb first

good start! lots of interesting stuff in here.
If you want to be a pro designer it's good to have a bit of everything.
Someone would prefer to hire one person who could do environments, props, and characters instead of three different people.
Illustration you want composition, mood, subject, Pretty much everything.
Long story short, nothing will go astray .
with any type of art the fundamentals are most important, so when in doubt do some of those.
Thanks to everyone for the nice welcome! I'm eager to keep working on stuff to show here. Right now I have only digital, but in a few days I'll start with what would be a real sketchbook thing Thanks again!
Here are some other things I've done these past days. The last one being an idea I want to push far beyond just a sketch, in that case I'll be showing how it goes. Any critics on it would be awesome!
Exelente ! Todo esta muy bueno, i loved the one of the bird n the dragon, la que no me gusto es la de la tea pot, you could work more on the reflection rendering! : ) keep up the good work, keep it coming
Oh man, these are so cool. Love the old man faces and the watery aircraft base one. Also the bird and lizard creature combination is fantastic. Really like that one, and the gold tones in your still life are incredibly rich and intense. I don't know much about digital art, but it looks like you really know what you're doing with brushstrokes and colour etc. Amazing work all round. I'll be subscribing to this thread for definite.
You mentioned developing the last image. Is that the one with the glass and fish floating round it? If so, cool idea and I'm looking forward to seeing the progress and how it turns out.
Thanks again to everyone for the encouragement!
Rem92, thanks for making a note on my reflections issue! haha, never thought about it really... since it confuses me quite much I usually ignore some reflections, reducing them just to specular. I'll try to do a more profound study with such topic, thank you!
Here I have what could be a "getting up to date" thing from my sketchbook's drawings the last month. This with the only purpose of registering where I am now and where I'm heading. I'll be posting the new stuff tomorrow !!
Holy, that last post goes on for a quarter mile! lots of fun stuff in there.
Hell of a dump, man, and the sketches and finished pictures look quite equally badass. Love the sheer immensity of the different sketches that you're deciding to use - everything from teapots to boat scenes to furries. Not often that you you see that sort of breadth, and it's a great idea top pursue that kind of versatility.
3 posts in, and this is already a great little sketchbook - great work, Darkthur!
I got some more stuff to upload here! And still working on more, thanks again for all your comments people!!
You're doing work! Dig the looseness of your lines. Lot's of energy.
Furry! ahaha. Me gusta el giffin en el ultimo post. Y los bosquejos. The gestures remind me of vilpu a little, is that where you're referencing it from?
My favorite has to be the large one of Lucario.
ToxicCalico - Hey thanks! I'm glad you liked that lucario guy. Hmm, vilppu, no not really... have not read anything from him yet. Perhaps just a coincidence ? XD
And the last ones for tonight! :
Some sketches of the past two days.
Someone mentioned here something about Vilppu, so I decided to check him out and wow! I like how he thinks about drawing, here are some of the ideas I acquired form him. I'll be working more with his stuff though, so expect more of that matter.
I also worked with some écorché ideas trying to get the torso anatomy into my mind. The photos there are copyright of their respective owners!
Just a quick question, where do you go to school?
i guess i am shocked , your pencil works are so nice , other things are also good in your sketch book .
Hello people! I've been somewhat busy these past few days working with some school projects, so few sketching has been done... I have some of them though, here you go!
Oh, another WIP of my weird glass illustration :p As well as some studies from classic arts. Please let me know what you think on both!!
ToxicCalico - I'm currently studying at Tecnológico de Monterrey here in Mexico City. I'm into animation and digital art, but it's a little bit too technical and less artsy than what I could enjoy... anyways I try to learn that by my own
Your loose lines that you use to convey form are very inspiring, I think you'd benefit from drawing movement with them as well, it seems like a very fitting technique to use with it.
The glass study is looking good as well, also the guy with the dog head earlier in the sketches makes me laugh ;p
Well, not too much in this post, just this color practice I did yesterday at night. I think I'll work with some other stuffs like this one ^^
Ohh yes! I just finished rendering a 3D model I did for my modeling class. Hehe, just though it would be nice to show it here.
whoaaaaaat that urn looks sooo good. I think I have one just like it. I love the refractions too, how the color recedes from the light, damn. is that Photoshop or painter?
That motorcycle looks bad-ass It seems like it took a hella long time to finish o_O
Great work as always!
some more before I begin working with some faces
ToxicCalico - Ohh yes that moto took a little while! like one month and a half maybe... I used painter for the pot picture, I enjoy working there more than in photoshop
Great work as usual. Also love the urn. The depth and richness of the colour and light are fantastic.
A slight niggle re how the shoulder joints look in that last set of shaded torso studies. Lovely work generally, but something looks strange about how you joined the shoulders to the bodies. Not sure if it's an issue with the bone structure or muscle shape, as I'm no expert. I just thought I'd point it out.
This book is filled with Awesomeness! Of course im more partial to the animals, especially the birds, but you have plenty of good stuff all around. Very cool sketchbook, ty for the advice, and keep posting =)
