Here are two self portraits, done in about 1,5 year interval
They were both done in around 45mn:



I enjoy going back in old works and comparing, makes me feel good about myself (sometimes...)
I have files with drawings as old as around 2002, where I decided i wanted to get serious about drawing (around 13-14 years old).
They are terrible.

I recently got a membership to Atlanta's zoo and have been going there to sketch. There a class at SCAD that has a weekly field trip there, so I just kind of joined the group without being in the class. Here are some of my sketches done there.

Sorry about the crappy quality, but I just have a camera at home, no scanner. They were all done with a ballpoint pen (the cheaper the better). I must admit it can be really hard to draw moving animals, but it's definitely fun.

Book Illustration process

So, here are some process shots for some of the illustrations I made for my Book Illustration class.

I must say, I am pretty dissatisfied with the final result. The black and white point wasn't bad, but the colors weren't so good... Part of the reason is because I used a process I wasn't satisfied with, which is adding the colors after doing the complete black and white drawing. It's not easy to deal with the different layer modes to get exactly the color you want. I don't think I'll be using that again...

I'd love to get into more traditional art, but I'm afraid to struggle to much with the medium and having a hard time achieving the result I want. It would be because of lack of practice with it, but as it is I'm never practicing with it, and will never get better at using traditional paints. I guess I just need to work the courage to really start.
