Hello all, my name is Victor Quaresma and I'm an aspiring concept artist and illustrator from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Anyway, this year I decided to devote myself full time to art, so I can build up a professional portfolio and all that jazz. I'm too much of a perfectionist and picky on my own art and that has been a real problem for me, since I still don't have the skills that I think I should have, making me never really get a painting to a finished level (kinda get too frustrated or anxious and drop it eventually).
Since last week, I decided to go on a hardcore mode and study alot more than I was. So far I've been able to keep a good flow and I wanna keep at it. I'll be posting my stuff here so I can get my art maximized by your lovely feedback, get inspired by other artists and be challenged always.
Thanks for checking my sketchbook!! Feel free to critique, suggest changes, leave ideas, etc etc.
Alrighty, so I'll start off with last week's chow (key master), my first chow, and experience here in ca.org, really great! unfortunatly I had lots of problem rendering it so I decided to work on my fundamentals more =)
some sketches and thumbnails
tight final lines for the design I picked, I probably spend too much time degning the masks and tightning up lines, which made me not be able to finish it =(
after that fail, this week has been fundamentals only: with loomis, gestures, color studies and getting back to studying perspective off scott robertson's dvd
1h 20min color study
some 15sec building up to 30min gestures
tons of elipses sketches, 2hrs of doin elipses on all possible ways XD
daily 15 second gestures
more loomis, struggle a bit more with woman's anatomy so it was tougher, took me more time
and some nightly sketches from imagination to apply gestures and some design
