doing 2 of those thumbnails everyday, hope to make it an habit.
40m~1h studies from masters.
working pretty small on them, this pic is probably going to show bigger than what i was working on.
i hope there is no problem posting this. i can show the originals if needed.

@Grumpysaur thank you! i will indeed keep them coming.
Tomorow i will be going with some artists to my college morgue, to take some anatomical pictures, or even draw in there. Hope it will be fun.
Here is some more of those color thumbnails
The ones in the middle have been a struggle, dunno, probably i was in a bad day, hard scenes, etc. Trying to keep em simple.

Few sketches and stuff,
I kinda like this little painting, but i dont even know how to start rendering the town down there. would like to do something simple.
this medusa one is something i would like to take to a finished level, my dad wants to have something i've painted printed on his wall, i spent a ton of time on it already, but i am not quite exited about it anymore...
Happy new year!

Sargent portrait study, 20~30 minutes
Anyone knows a way to paint a city without going crazy? keeping it simple and such
Finally took the time to finish this, ended up pretty happy with it.
Few color comps, trying to get the same scene to have diferent moods, without adding character and etc.

Your art is all real good and would be the kind of art that would inspire me to keep drawing.Your first post is just so awesome.I don't know if it's just because I like that style or what but it really appeals to me.
I have started a Facebook page and it would be great if you could join & become one of the admins with me. i'm hoping to eventually get a couple of admins to post their art there. let me know if you're intrested

Your sketchbook is so awesome man, im 18 about to turn 19 in a few weeks so you make me kinda nervous haha i feel like im behind. I really dig your stuff though specially the way you draw faces. I really hope to see some more stuff from you.
p.s. I was just wondering but you being brazillian do you happen to speak spanish or just portuguese, I ask because I speak spanish and I know some brazillians that know how to speak spanish. I hope youre not offended
Help me improve!

haha, thank you isaac!
i guess nobody is actually behind. ive seen some amazing dudes that got started pretty late. i wouldnt worry about that too much.
and no, haha, i only speak portuguese and english. but i guess i could maintain a conversation with someone who speaks spanish (:
