@Voodoo-Mama: It's actually a sloth and yea, the guy with the mask is my favorite also
Mostly because I was largely involved in creating the character, he wasn't really meant to exist in the concept the agency I'm working for is working on, and now everybody loves the hell out of him, he's more popular than the main characters haha Thanks for your kind words! I will never stop drawing!
@JoseVega: Hey man, yea, believe me, I wanna start shading also haha I've got all these sketches and I can't focus on starting one! I've got my mind all scattered around and it's hard to find some time to work on painting, you know? but I will...eventually
Thnxs for your support, man!
@mjasnowski: Thank you very much! You'll see a lot more from me! I'll make sure that happens!
@MrBrown: Thnxs, bro, I know it will, I just get frustrated sometimes XP But I'll never stop working hard! I can promise you that!
@rumpenstiltzkin: Thanks a lot for dropping by! Yea, I do a lot of pencils cuz I travel a lot, so it's usually 4-5 hours of just sitting around doodling and sketching my brains out :P Wish I could turn them all to digital tho hehehe and thnxs for the support! It would definitely be awesome
@stace: Reading your post has definitely made my day, I'm so glad to see you visiting my sketchbook and your kind words really boost my desire to keep working hard and getting better.
I started doing some of the posemaniacs.com exercises but haven't really got the time to do some more. I've been searching for a live drawing group here in my city, but I've had 0 luck so far, so I'll try to start one myself, I've got a couple of friends who have modeled before so maybe I can start there
I only know how to use Maya atm, I'll start seeing Zbrush soon, but everything is Maya so far, I'm getting in love with 3D lately and I've been eager to do some character work in 3D, but, arrgh, time is such a b*tch! hahaha
K, so here are a couple of sketches I've been working on lately, mostly for some challenges here on the hub:
I really try very hard to get into the Anatomicae challenges, not only because I wanna set up and example as the moderator, but because I've really been learning a lot from the challenges I'm setting up myself! Anyways, here's my take on the human chimera, I went for a shark-human combo...sharks are really weird haha I mean, their skeleton is like, just, bizarre XP
Decided to take on the New Worlds Challenge, I really wanna get myself out of my comfort zone for a while and start working on enviros and more realistic painting. So, I went into Maya, did a 40 min construction of the scene and then took a screenshot...on to Photoshop
Blocked everything up nice and pretty, however I kinda messed up as the throne must not be inside an interior D: So I thought of turning the castle walls into ruins and show some post-apocalyptic scenario in the background...
Here's the current state of my entry for the challenge, it still needs a lot of rendering and I don't think I'll make it in time lol but nevertheless, I really wanna finish this one. Any C&C's are most welcome!
Oh! One last thing! This October, there'll be this event on the city I'm currently living at, called the Illustrators Deathmatch: it's this 3 day conference with big guns in the art world as protagonists (Serge Birault is coming!). Anyway, the 3rd day ends up with, as the name of the event states, a deathmatch between at least 40 illustrators from every corner of Mexico!
Kinda like a cghub challenge, but straight butt naked live and with only 2 hours to spend on the artwork. The 40 or so participants are picked from a range of sent portfolios and stuff...and yea, as you might have guessed it, I sent my portfolio
No news so far, they're posting 6 participants every week but I'm really crossing my fingers I'll eventually appear on the list! Works will be judged by the masters that came to the conferences and the winner will receive a scholarship of some sort, there's still not a lot of info on this but I'll let you guys know what happens next as soon as I get more info.
Wish me luck and thanks for reading!
