Hello to all
Great site you got here. Ive been lurking for ages and now have decided to start posting. You know how it goes.
Now for a quick intro:
My name' Octavio I'm 16 , born and raised in Cuba, live in Fl and ah... yea thats about it. Love to draw but that goes without saying.
Feel free to crit. but be gentle im still young and have lots to learn.
on to the pics this first set are just a bunch of loose pretty much unnfinished images . Practice , stuff to keep the pencil moving

Allright hes an update. I gotta say that first post was an overwhelming success. This one has more finished(kinda) pieces and hopefully ill get some responsesthis time.
Forgive the horrible scans and smudges cause its mostly not my fault the smudges were cause by some of my friends who were looking through my sketchbook and messed it up and the scans well ..i cant figure out how to scan correctly but thats the scanners fault not mine its never my fault not while i have others to blame.
I feel that this piece needs some explanation its for the weekly sketch challenge over at the tentonstudio.com forum the character is terror inc and well it take way too long to explain why hes got wolverines arm. google him.
well this is a landmark piece for me cause i used ref and i drew a woman who actually looks like one and not just an ugly tranny. Shes one of the better looking trannies shes farther along the hormone treatment
some random stuff and some hellboy ripoffs
well my excuse for this masterpiece of American illustration is that i was bored.... really really really bored
sooooooooo yea uhu thats it sorry for making ya read so much(like u read anything )
Nice start to your SB here. Looks like you're trying to start some character studies, so if you haven't already, I would recommend downloading loomis here and study that like crazy. Try to draw from life as much as possible too, it'll help you to think 3 dimensionally. Keep at it, hope to see more from you.
Hi ya, the size of the pics is all right I'd say but if you really want to resize them it's really easy to do that in a painting software such as Photoshop or painter or in a Picture viewer like ACDSee. If you haven't got any of these you can do it even in the Microsoft paint utility which goes free with your Windows. If you're using a Mac there's a paint utility on your system for sure.
And also follow AvatarJimmy's advice and have a look at some loomis anatomy. And draw like crazy...
AvatarJimmy: thanks. yea i know of loomis i have all his books on my pc just gotta get around to readin em.Ive been doin more life drawing recently thanks for the advice.
codeman:thanks yea i fixed the image sizes found some progrem online for it

Saludos amigo cubano! no te preocupes por que la gente no postee en tus Sketchbooks, simplemente tu haz lo que tengas que hacer, y con el tiempo irán llegando tus comentarios. Para tener 16 años estás dibujando excelente, si yo hubiera dibujado así a esa edad, estaría hoy hecho una máquian, trabajando para Massive Black jajaj que modesto no? bueno sigue dibujando y dibujando más!
Heres a new update its been a while since my last one . Ive just been kinda busy since school started.
Pixel: thanks for the advice much appreciated
Gringo: gracias por comentar
trying to draw more faces and stuff from ref. Can you guess who it is?
the ref for this i got from some pictures in pixeldragoon's sketchbook
that "angel" figure was actually a bodybuilder but because of the lighting it felt very angelic and serene so i added the halo
doodles while listening to the radio. bababooey bababooey!!
another one of those drawings that i love the whole feel but im afraid to finish cause i might ruin it
just a face i kinda like
some prelim stuff for a piece i wanna do
more stuff for that same piece
and thats all for now
