page 59: Fountain

I wanna know a little bit of everything. This was an attempt to study how water moves in a fountain. It was actually very interesting and relaxing.

My mother loves chickens, so there's a lot of interesting rooster artifacts around the house. I drew this porcelain Portuguese rooster first, then used it as inspiration to create my own Mayan twist on the design.

It's good to use inspiration from the real world. If you're not having any ideas, or a bad sketch day, draw from life first. Just a quick, bad drawing. Then use the experience to make something better and better!!!

Sometimes, line-work just looks better. Not that the inked version's bad, but the line felt like it had so much more life to it. One should always be open to experimentation, but it's okay to hold on to something every once in a while, especially if it's a good thing and it doesn't limit you as a person/artist.

Recently I've been trying to incorporate more shapes and organic curves (cartoon style) into my observations. These are some examples, pages 45, 47, and 49.

curious monk

I added this old man sketch because it is what actually inspired the style for the younger character. I hope to render and color him fully later on, I just have some other things in mind first. As for the youngster, I really enjoy a style of simple shapes that incorporate line design. I wanted this monk like character, being young and all, to be in a scene that shows some of his curiosity and has the mood of mystery. This drawing surely wouldn't have been the same on white paper. The mid-tone was actually helpful in visualizing the scenario.

page 32-37

Sometimes doodles can turn into projects. The characters on page 32-33 (top), are minions for a comic I have in mind (currently titled: "Action Nancy"). In the middle, this doodle served as my Noah character for an animation project (see proj. at "my Art" blog). On the bottom image I'm just doodling for fun.
