Sketches of ladies again

I did two of these from imagination, probably during a work meeting in which I should have been paying attention and being very proactive. Oh well :P

I made this for a friend's charity event. Trying to be as neutral as possible: not realistic, not super stylized, no much edge. I don't know if I like it, but it is done! Time to move on :)

Sci Fi cliches are having a ball

A character for a side project I am working on with a friend from work :)

A face sketch with hat

So you start doing a silly sketch and then you keep going and going. It never reaches the technical or narrative heights of an illustration but it is there in any case, staring at you :(

Mad hat tho! I think I would be a good fashion designer :)

Quick sketch at the MFA

I went to the museum, saw a face I liked and tried to put it down on the iPad as fast as possible.

Return of the nude

The school semester started and with it, the figure drawing sessions. This yet another one made in the iPad. Fun times!

Edit: I had a third opportunity to see the model in the pose. I don't know if the extra time made things better, but here we have the results:

Slimy Bike

Another of those sketches I do in those situations in which I should be paying attention to something important.

Violet The Ghost Lady

An iPad sketch that I was making as a trade for someone I work with. This is as far as the limited, inconsiderate composition I started with will let me go with the amount of detail  I am willing to invest on it. With more planning, time and narrative... in any case, it was fun to do! And I got a pretty awesome drawing in trade that I should post soon if allowed :)

Mermaid out

iPad sketching is actually fun! Not as good as the Clintq plus photoshop, but I can draw in the couch :P

More centaur sketch

I like to draw weird things, I know. I guess it could be worse!

Georges Island beach painting.

I love Boston. We visited Georges Island and took the opportunity to do a sketch of the Boston skyline far in the distance.

Harpy sketch

Besides my regular game design job, I've been working in a commission that is consuming most of my time. I have little time for sketches and almost no chance for ambition. This simple drawings is all I can show for now, until disclosure agreements and stuff of that sort are cleared with either my company or my colleagues, I suppose. Still, fun times for sure :)

Quick Sketch at the MFA

I did this quick sketch of an awesome Jefferson's bust that  I found at the MFA. Fun times!

Man in red

When you have a short model session, you have to get the basic information in as few brushstrokes as possible, I think. I am still learning how to do that.

Sketching at the De Cordova Museum

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I went to the De Cordova Museum in Lincoln MA. It is a wonderful contemporary art museum that also rocks a great sculpture park with amazing pieces, some of them  hidden in the woods. I did not sketch any sculpture this time, but I was interested in a rock fence thing they had there. I should do more plain air sketching!

Long Legs

Here we have another sketch from a nude model session. This time with acrylics! I need to sketch with colors more often.

More Figure Drawing

This from a 3 hour long session, in two pages. Trying out a new scanner too!

Silene's Portrait

This is me trying to come up with a version of Go Nagai's character Silene. The first two are kinda terrible but the bottom one is getting closer.

Centaur sketch (nudity)

Sketches! I need to study horse anatomy :P

More sketches from now on (nudity)

I've decided to put more sketches in this blog, given that both of my jobs leave me with little time to do the big personal pieces. Most are figures that I draw in modeling sessions, or else just some random ideas. Nothing too fancy, but hopefully interesting to see nonetheless.

I want to embrace the mistake! It is the only way to improve, I think :)
