Hey voraz, how are you doing?
I think your definately going the right way w/ your sketchbook. The shading is getting better and better.
I still think some of your faces are a bit weak, i think you need to try out some more emotions and facestyles (chubby, skinny, feminine, whatever).
Keep em coming, and i hope to see some more animalstudies, those were great
Hi Zarquino, I really loved that one too and it isn't very usual for that to happen. I offered it to my sister for christmas in 2004.
And no I'm not catalan .
Esboços means sketches in Português, almost the same that in Catalan, very similar like many other words in our languages.
Thanks for stopping by.

You show a great improvement from your original post. Your animal stuff looks great. I love that first elephant you posted. The human stuff still seems to be hit & miss. The referenced, and life drawings of humans are looking better and better, but the non-referenced stuff sometimes turn into a mix between anime and western charcoal art.
I have the same problem of overly simplifying the humans I draw when I'm not looking at something for reference. But I am now conscious of it, and try to incorporate things I've discovered when drawing from a photograph, into stuff I just conceive by myself without any references. There is still a huge difference between the stuff I can draw when looking at a picture and the stuff I can draw on my own. It looks like you may be in the same boat. But the more you practice both drawing techniques the more the line between them seems to blur.
Hi, thanks for dropping by and taking some time to leave a comment.
You are totally right with what you are saying and I perceive that difference.
Anyway I guess i will probably never use the same technique when drawing from life or photo, then when I draw without a reference, mostly because what I like to draw most are comics, where they are more stylised and more simplified and not exactelly realistic.
I will sure try to be as reallistic as possible in some kind of exercises, when i want to make portraits that look alike, or when practising in some ocasions where I really want to get the shapes as realistic as possible.
Glad you also see some improvement, I have been working more frequently in the last year (and some stuff, especially in the first posts, in my sketchbook are really old, some are from more than 10 years ago).
