NEW STUFF AT LAST PAGE!
The images that were in this first post are going to the next one.
Holy fuckin chaos, you crammed a lot in on these peices of paper. Something about the 3rd to last peice that I really like a lot. Its like there is a story going on in each peice. I find it very intriguing. They all have a very mysterious feel to them. I would almost like to see them larger, with more details, but stay in black and white ink.
Well if it is'nt my fellow TD competitor
I thought you quited the idea of a sketchbook! Well good to see you have a new one
You've got some nice ideas going there, and pretty vivid sketches. Now I'm wondering how a more "finished" sketch would look like. Looking forward to your next update.
the difference is that mine wont be THAT shitty
i'll post my todays sketches later! most likely tdome practice stuff.
EDIT HERE IS THE STUFF OF MY FIRST POST, check it out. I put it here cause I want a little thumbnail for my thread...
the first too pages of this new "stuff".
A quick self portrait not alike at all...
the most recent pages. done in the course of this week. the last page is a bunch of quick concepts for a battle i'm a part of (against ICEMOON).
each of these pages is an a4... the drawings are small, but each of them take about 3-4 minutes to do... so i usally take a good time on each page :p i hope i can show you anything new later on.

nice start... looking forward to seeing more. I know I have a hard time filling up the pages... I have to work on that.
Do you do those as warm-ups? If so, can we see what you warm up to?
glikster thanks for the comment man! and i hope your sandman collection is allright. i still pretty much suck in perspective and anatomy, i try to get better evertime..
here is my finished sandman tribute! it took me like 4-5 hours to do this... including Photoshop time. I'll probably modify with more Photoshop madness later on.
yeah, that's freaky...
but nicely done!
What happened to our Support Group?
It's good to see you doing those hogarth studies. The way I've been taught to draw bodies is to start with a skeleton, rough in the ribcage, pelvis, spine and limbs then add flesh and stir. Try finding the skeletons in those hogarth studies first, then use your ref to help you flesh it out, keeping in mind the 3d forms. Sketching with felt tip pen(?) will make your rough skeletons more obvious so you might want to use pencil or ball point when doing that, that way you can keep your construction lines light.
Oh yeah, and if you don't post soon i'll come along with some plastic tubing and take a leaf out of your book.
Hi, GriNGoLoCo! Wow another ssg #6 member that is doing studies of Hoggarth's books! For now you are doing better than me but I will continue to draw from that book till I finally learn to draw the human body. The last drawing is well drawn but it is really nasty looking if that was your goal you have certainly achieved it!
Great sketches, I gotta make myself doodle like that, the whole fill the page till there's no white left... It really is a discipline, after all this is about sketching! Love your line work, reminds me of Moebius. Check him out:
Btw, just joined SSG#6... so gonna post some work later today, and hopefully we can all get back in the groove.
here are some SEMI-FINISHED stuff i want to show you, these are part of the midterm project of mine at school of my Illustration Class. We got a story from a book and started designing & drawing characters for it. It is a neat experience to say the least. Here are most of them:
Now comes my CHOW # 1 entry... done in about 2 hours, preplanning & thinking another 2 hours... it's a pretty great excercise, so I recommend everybody to go in and participate in CHOW if they have the chance:
I'll also be doing lost of PASTEL stuff, so I'll post some excercises soon. (have to take photographs of most of them! they are big!)
Dude... thanks for stopping by my SB... do you have another one of these, or is this it? If it is, UP-FRIGGIN-DATE!
Blankslatejoe - Thanks & I hope I find the time soon to do so!
Glikster! - Yes this is the one! & I hope I will be post more often
Asoir! Thanks a lot man! Keep up with your practicing, you'll get far man.
To resume, I have changed my major's carreer from animation to design. so that may be the biggest reason why I havent posted anything in a long friggin time. I'm also started to enter the world of "art"... like museams & shit, & i'm currently preparing myself for my first big expo here in my hometown of Quito. I will show you some of that stuff as it comes along.. the expo is in 3 weeks. For the moment, let me show you some of my stuff from the last 3 months. I consider them more personal studies on discovering a style... I think i'm nailing it somewhat for the moment. Hope you like!
Identity Design (this is for a SP mod i have been involved with for the last 2 years or so. This is the main logo).
that last bunch of pen drawings is killing me man. love their warpedness and character.
keep it up

definitley keep posting!
Pretty interesting style. Really like the earlier pages. All the stuff you put in them
Those last updates look good also, the one with ramiro written on the right shoulder reminds me alot of Quino's drawings, not for the artistic side but for the technical side...Dunno if you heard about him.
Anyway, your doing some cool stuff, keep us posted with your new discoveries
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...sp8dejunio.jpg <--- sweet! Been obsessing over inks lately, so I'm gulping this down like a madman. Did you use a brush pen for this one? Also like how you incorporate text in most of your stuff. Good stuff.
tensai - thanks for your comments. it's a real honor to have them, really. i love your city compositions, you're projects are absolutely gorgeous.
glikster - thanks my man for your kind words. kick ass.
Recursive_End - heya man, thanks for your comments. Yes I've heard a lot of Quino, and maybe I can say he has been an inspiration since my earlier highschool days? I just love his storytelling abilities, and his inking and character design style is just, his. Mafalda and his other own stuff just is top notch. And since I read it in the newspapers nearly every day then, i think I like it. And up & discovering I'll go!
Lukavi - wow man, i never expected your reply. It's an honor aswell to hear from you. The text incorporation is more like certain design elements I try to blend in with the illustration. Just for fun & practice.
Well, about the update. Here are some pastel stuff I have been doing. The portraits are oldish stuff, each one of them sizing A3 or bigger on average. These portraits are from the last year.
This one below is a study, referenced from a photo.
Now comes some 2006 stuff.
This is a design illustrationI submitted to a contest, it's quite big (60x99cm) on original scale. I was finalist in the contest (honor mention). The piece is entitled "Ángel de la Guard". Translated it means "Guardian Angel":
Now here comes stuff I did in the last week since posting: Here is an illustration piece I have called "KIDDY PLANE". It's also like 60 x 99 cm in dimensions, and I finished it in about 8 hours straight working. It has pastel & acrylics painted on it: Here is a progress sequence you can check out:
Now here comes a self portrait I did yesterday. I did it with inks & brush (markers) The actual size is 65x50 cm or so. I really like how it turned out. Hope you guys like it aswell:
Gringo a lot of very nice work in that last post. I like your ink work a lot it's very expressive. The color work is also very well done but "Angel de la Guard" just stands out as very different from the rest. It has a very graphic appeal to it.
Solid work keep at it.
Perdona que no tengo tiempo para darte una buena critica. Te la debo.
yeo gringo! remember u beat me in a lil thunderdome long time ago? im callin you out again to see what i can do competitionwise now... you up for it!?

hey man, nice stuff! you've got a really nice style; freaky but it's really expressive. the pastel portraits look great, and I like that one piece with the ship and all the little guys around it. great usage of color btw, looks like you understand color nicely. keep at it man, it's looking great!
sick shit bro. i like the colors
Lotta great stuff here, cool colors especially. This one's my favorite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...kiddyplane.jpg
A lot of your human figures and look a bit off, not as good as certain others demonstrate you're capable of. Some of them are pretty obviously intentionally off, but sometimes I can't tell whether you're being disturbing or lazy
Great work on the whole, though.
Thanks for stopping by my book.
hey thanks for the comment. diggin your style. what kinda pen you use. i need to get some pens. really like the guys from post #39. especially like mula! angel de la guard is really sweet too!
