    Edo Blanco's Sketchbook (open to criticism and feedback!)

    Hi! I'm Edgar Blanco, Spanish boi that started drawing "quite late".
    I've been drawing for almost 3 years now, having started with 19 and being now 22, and my goal is to become a concept artist/character designer.
    Right now I'm mainly focused on improving my anatomy and perspective, (I dont mean that I mastered the other fundamentals already, but first thing first?)
    That's why maybe you dont see those things here hahahaha.

    Welcome Edgar! Your work shows potential. If you want to be a character designer, study a lot of real people and animals. (Maybe you're already doing that but just didn't post them yet.) I started my art education around the same age as you so you're not alone .

    Thanks a lot! I did some quick figure drawings today, not the best, I know. I have to work on my lines and gesture(amongst other things), they look really stiff.
    And thanks for the advice! I'll get to draw animals as soon as I get an OK undestanding of the human body hahaha.

    hey Edgar!
    Welcome to the forum! Seems like a good start so far. It's good to have clear goals and knowing which things on focus on. As you go on it will be more easy to give you detailed critiques, right now I'd like to see more first, to get a deeper impression.

    just an overall thing to keep in mind: There are only very verynfew positions where people work as just a Character Artist. As Concept artist you usually need to be more versatile - you can aim to be a Jack of all trades, but Master of one - if characters are the thing you enjoy most. that might more realistic than aiming for the jobs only the truly exceptional or lucky people get. that shoulnd't influence you negativly in your studies, just keep your mind open for all kinds of topics.

    Hi Julia! First of all, you art is gorgeous and I would love to see a MTG Card illustrated by you, If you havent done it yet!.
    Thanks a lot for the advice. I'm also interested in illustration but I dont see myself capable of doing something worth showing right now hahaha.

    I'm also struggling with investing time in my stuff, I kinda get tired of them really quickly and I like to work really fast and produce a lot(not that I do that hahaha).
    Seeing your art I can tell that you really invest hours on each piece and I would like to know If you could give me any advices on patience and on that fear of polishing a sketch.

    Thanks a lot!

    No, I haven't done any MTG yet. Still have to work some more to reach that goal. But thank you for you encouragement!
    Regarding the advice you're asking for... I'm afraid patience works like a muscle. It's something you have to train to get used to. Bit by bit spending more time on pieces that might be worth it. Don't need to do it in one sitting, you can even work on a bunch of things. Just return and return and return to a piece. If you think it's done the first time, think further ahead and push your boundaries. Doing studies of things that have a level of finish you enjoy could be helpful as well. But as you see, no real secrets. just sitting down and at times fighting down your inner demons while painting.

    I'm glad that patience works like a muscle because that means I can train it and it's not something you are just born with it or not hahahahha. Thanks again for the good advice.

    Keep the good work, Los dibujos gestuales estan quedando muy bien, te recomiendo un libro que te ayudara a mejorar tu figura humana: Figure Drawing: Design and Invention de Michael Hampton.
