Old Man's Sketchbook (some females included) So, finally, I decide to post a sketchbook... I have drawn all my life, but circumstances (money, mostly) led me to work in commercials doing 3d. It's a good living where i am (Colombia, South America).. but it's so..unglamorous I mean you can only make 30 or 40 product shots of laundry detergent before it gets bleh-ish.
Finding CA made me sit down and draw again, and I'm thankful to all the people here for helping me keep my sanity. I'll do my best to update if people like it enough.
please crit my a** off

Here's a few more.. I'm giddy like a schoolgirl about FINALLY showing this stuff to people who won't just say " ooh, great work" but will tear up the errors and shortcomings...
More stuff from past books, some touched up in painter...
Glad you are back doing something you find rewarding :::: I am the old guy in these here parts!
Keep drawing :::: it keeps you from being to sane!
Normal people scare me!!!!!!!!LOL
Was about time to get this thing rolling don't you think "old man" let's hope this continue so we which are far away can continue enjoy your art.
Welcome to the forums. Some real nice ideas here. The sketchbook section, as I've found, is probably the fastest way to improve and also keep a log of your improvement. Keep posting.
Got to come home for lunch so i scanned a couple of new things
Thanks everyone for the kind words, but follow on Craig's lead and CRIT, dammit!!
Hey "Old Man".
Finally I got one of the drawings that I LOVE !!! (girl on bar with red heart) so I have it now as back on screeen.
Good to have this on line... I will make some publicity from my side to see what happend.
Are you still interested in acrilics and canvas ?
Interested, yeah.. but i WISH i had time for that stuff nowadays... maybe soon...
Sorry i'm not scanning today, i'm beat, promise fat update tomorrow
a wagonload of stuff, culled from my sketchbook by my girlfriend.. hehe
on an idea by bengal-
3 more.. first day of vacations and i stayed up all night cuz i COULD!!!
i've been browsing the threads, all the sketchbooks.. and i came across the "comfort zone" concept... daaam.. so i'll try and do life drawings, sp, locations and all the other stuff i tend to avoid, so watch for those in the coming days...
and PLEASE crit me, i beg you *sob*
sorry for not updatin' today..promise tomorrow you'll get new stuff
update.. a few doodles.. insane vision's thread has made me reconsider quite a few things... work work work.

I'm a little worried about the lack of replies or posts.. I'm kinda thinking ppl feel they're losing their time seeing this stuff... anyways I'm sticking to my guns

Are you kidding? I LOVE this thread! Keep gunnin' away.I'm a little worried about the lack of replies or posts.. I'm kinda thinking ppl feel they're losing their time seeing this stuff
The last time I posted (a week ago or so) my message never actually appeared -- I'm assuming there was a browser/net error. I should have retyped it.
Anyhow, awesome stuff. That vulvic beastly is hilariously good. There's a bit many folds going on but hey, it's its own organism with it's own independent anatomy, right?

If you start to cry I will slap you silly with a glove full of coins so you will have a REAL reason...
If I have not posted is because I am in the lands of the old Inca Empire and the internet have not cast there web to this shores...
So... keep going... you may consider to dig under the rocks and uneath the old tarot...
Keep going my good friend.
PS... IS TRUE... I AM IN INCA'S LANDS

Yeah great thread dude. Keep it up. Putting me to shame with the updates. I especially like your mechanical stuff - the boy with mech legs is cool. Your people could use a) more sense of weight and balance - lots of them are falling over and b) more... reality, for want of a better word. Some of them are excellent like multi-armed the robot girl (especially as they're without refs), but a lot of them have the kind of stylized look that comes from drawing from tricks instead of knowledge. I'm speaking from experience - I'm trying to fight the same tendancy myself right now. The solution is LIFE DRAWING! (You're going to hear that a lot on these boards). If you're not doing that already I can highly recommend it - both models and just people on the bus are very helpful.
Keep it up!
been vacationing...gonna force mself to at least doodle a little on painter later tonight..
thanks Monkeyboy, really goos points you brought up, and i agree fully
well, till later;
aaand this.. ok i go beddy bye now...soon, the sketches for a comission comic, brief: wall decor for a coffeehouse in BEIJING!!!!
sketches for a comission thingie...
like that the design of that last one..
she looks a bit squeezed though..
keep it up
You're a real champ with marker shading.
I like the chic in the mech thing. At first glance though, and most of the second glance, I missed the right arm till I sorted it out from all the detail going on all around it.
What's the context with the sequential commission stuff?
It's a dream assignment, Craig.. Some Colombian investors (I'm colombian btw ), decided to set up the competition to starbucks in china, beijing, specifically.
So this designer friend of mine gets back from beijing, and she's all worked up about the huge columns in the place they bought... the feng shui experts told her it wouldnt work... three HUGE black marble columns. So she decides a comic would be perfect to offset the blackness and whatnot.
So i get hired to do a 15 page comic, my story, no text, black and white, for a VERY decent amount of money, and with time to spare. And it will be seen halfway around the world!!!
Something bad must be going to happen...
here's two more, still in sketch stage, mind you
