It Begins...

Okay folks... My first day as an actual caricature artist starts this Saturday... Supposedly by the end of training we are supposed to be able to draw a salable drawing. I don't think I'm quite there yet. So I decided to go out to the public armed with a marker, a pack of color sticks, and a sign that read "ask me to draw you". These are the results.

It's gonna be a LONG road towards salable...

Wild Things

Trying some new stuff, going for stylized figures. These were really fun to do, i think I'm going to do a lot more, but start playing with different body types too.

These are quick gestures of some animals from the zoo. If you can tell what they are, I did them right.

Straight to the Curves

This sketch blog, to me, is meant to be an evolutionary experience. The growth of my ability to draw living sketches. So the stuff I post won't necessarily always be my best work, but more of when I learn something new from a sketch, it will go here.

Trying out new colors...

This was quick and dirty, but i like the direction and how i pushed the curve

Again, playing with new colors, and not being able to erase, working on line economy, still sketchy though...

Working new concepts into my montages, imagining the bodies underneath the clothed people i draw. Sounds creepy huh? Trust me, not to get my rocks off...

I feel like I'm starting to understand force and overlap a bit more, need to speed up my drawing time though, these are 5 min sketches.

Aside from the drawing on the right, I really felt I made a jump in getting likeliness and character out of the people I drew.

Working on drawing fully bodies with clothing folds. Never really tried a study like this before.

I was playing with a brush pen over poorly drawn sketches. I think I improved on them.

Hello World

So just because its the "trendy" thing to do these days, I'm starting my own art blog. I'll post some random and not so random art pieces from time to time. And since this is my first post and I really don't have much to work to "show off", here is just the stuff I did this past winter. Enjoy.
