Welcome to my Sketchbook.
Im Alfonso, 30 years old from Spain.
Here you will see the good, the bad and the ugly of my artistic journey.
This Is a sketchbook I have filled in the last 2 months.
Almost everything is copied from another images.
Pencil 2h and hb.
The sketchbook was 55 pages but I edited and compressed it to fit on these 5 images.
Still from bed
Copy from reference picture
I had a rolled white paper infront of me as reference. This is so hard.
From a magazine picture
your figures look like they are coming along nicely, keep up the hard work
From The Drawing Script website. 3 to 5 mins each draw.
Inner cube corner. This is a hard one to achive.
Finally something interesting. Having problems placing shadows.
60 seconds gestures from posemaniacs.com
Then worked on them from imagination. I didnt knew I could do that.
From The Drawing Script. 7 Minutes each.
90 secs gestures from Posemaniacs.
Today I found it very hard to get the volumes. I had the feeling proportions werent right.
Maybe I didnt pay enough attention while doing the gesture.
Color studies from pictures. I did filter the references to get rid of details.
7 minutes faces. Ill go with 10 minutes for the next serie.
I realize this is not only about color, I can study surface materials aswell, like the chrome ball or the purple cloth.
I made this list of exercises I could do. Copy, Life or Imagination.
Gestures from posemaniacs.com work the volumes after.
Faces from The Drawing Script
Color studies thumbnails from pictures

Concept environment thumbnails (color + composition)

Concept design character. Cant do it yet.

Follow a tutorial
Now I have to decide how much time to spend on each one. :0
Master Copy: Amour a l'affut, Bouguereau
I had a polystyrene ball as reference.
I got myself a cranium. First time I do a still life.
Too big to scan it. Sorry for quality.
60 seconds gestures (working big)
60 seconds gestures (working small)
1st time I try the "value first" aproach. Really painful so far. Lets se how goes color(ing) tomorrow.
Didnt work that well
I have tried to work on the brush stroke with these gestures.
Quickie, after Frazetta. I love his femmes.
