Less serious work

A painting of unrelated random characters I did this week-end. It´s not for any project at all, I only did it for the pleasure of it. Animals are hard to draw, it´s definitely something I need to work on

I scanned some of my sketchbook pages a couple of weeks ago but forgot to post it. I was sick when I drew them. The outcome was therefore a lot influenced by my physical and mental condition. I was thinking only about having fun and trying other possibilities.

Introduction to photoshop

He had a 2 days course with Adrian Dexter. I´ve been using this program for a longtime, therefore I didn´t have any struggle. But learned a few things anyway, it wasn´t a waste of time at all. Besides, I´m not so used to working from my imagination. The assignment was just to draw a  monster digital painting with this background. What I came up with is not the kind of stuff I usually like. I find most fantasy artwork stupid or ridiculous. I found it funny not taking my interests too seriously for once and surprisingly enjoyable.

Here is the final result of two and a half weeks of animation. Long story short I had a lot fun with it as usual and learned tones!

Gesture Drawing

Every Saturday we do gesture drawing with a few second year students.
The point is to capture the action, the story or the feeling, rather than trying to make an exact copy of reality. Last session turned out pretty good!

We do some gesture drawing as well with our new teacher every morning for the past two days. I can tell it´s going to help us and that my gesture drawing will get better (hopefully).
I decided to post last Saturday session anyway, for it was already a breakthrough for me and I had much fun drawing those.
