holy mother of art! Jeez, man, I missed the new thread.. shame on me.. soy un cara de caca for not checkin' up on ya I visited Hurricane, Pencilator and a few others this weekend over in sweden. We had a croquis-session, and it was awesome! Very good followup after prague. Can't wait to hang out with ya again!
Keep those sketches coming!
Bro... awesome about sumz it up! Great, great work, man. It's great to see you back as well. You'll have to tell us all about your many adventures. I'm thinking of doing an overseas stint with some friends next year so you'll have to let me know where to hit up the hostels and stuff. But yea, this stuff is sooo great. It's too much to take in! I love the environment pen drawings as well. You're makin' some fat strides. Make sure and tell us what you learned from the WS! I wanna know what the pointers you got were! Great work! Great work! Now in honor of your Mexican heritage I'm going to go have a Chimichanga. Buenos Noches!
I would just like to chime in with the HOLY SHIT. Cause seriously, that's all I kept thinking as I scrolled through all that. Absolutely phenominal stuff, man. You're a monster with the pen! I love all your ink and brushpen drawings. Crazy great stuff!!

You have a most excellent sketchbook, it's everthing that a sketchbook could and should be. Not just studies, but a journal of experiences, as well. The sketch at the airport showing the seats and the plane just blew me away. Too cool. I recognized all the Firenze sites even before the statue of David! Those were great to see. Please post more.
Beautiful visual verbiage of your trip <> wonderful experiences shared <> very inspirational indeed
Back from Europe with a vengeance! Lovely to see the heaps of sketches that you made during your trip, like memories in pen & pencil.
hey maxetormer, looked into this sketchbook for the first time. wow, you seem to be one dedicated sketch-artist, so many sketches, in public also. nice stuff. keep'em comig, such dedication is motivating.

dCepT: Dude!! Grasias por darte una vuelta por aqui! thanks for the post
I would have loved to go hand hang out on Sweden!! be sure that ill
find a way to cross the ocean again (not in the near future but
some day, ill manage to do it ) I miss ya guys, I had such a GREAT
time and the inspiration I got form all of you is fueling my hand like
Jens: He he funny you said that cause I do plan to frame those
portaits you made, be sure of that, thanks so much for beeing so
cool with me, and for the pen and inks tips, good to har you diged the
landscapes, those are my favorites as well
Pencilator: Hi there you crazy sweden blond, Im so glad you liked the
update (I was very nervous about it cuase inks couse me lots and
lots of headaches so theres a lot of not very sucessfull experiments here )
but theres lots of fun experiments so I guess its allright :
ZebzFree: Ryan!! bro, its good to have you around! thanks for all the
ecouragment, really, you comments are always wellcome, Im glad to
hear you diged the eviros, I liked too as well, as far as your request for
tales and tips from the workshop, one of the main things was that
el El coro and Jens told me to slow down and really draw what I see,
and El Coro, told me that using inks forces you to be more acurrate,
cuase you cant erase one bit you really need to think alot before you
act, so right now and after the workshop I started to REALLY use
inks every single minute, and Im goona be working with them for at least a year,
I mean ill do some other stuff but doing my daily ink-observation
excersices is a must for me now, plus I find ink to be very liberating
for the same reason some find it to be limiting, you see if you cant
fixe it then you can move one to the next study wiht out any regrets
and that for me is like nirvana he he, as far as the trip it self, I would
urge you to do it, it quite an experience man! you should go for sure,
of course I have more things to tell but I need to sleep as well, so
ill keep on updating and writing as usual, in an almost daily basis
You too keep it up, ill drop by you thread tomorrow for sure!
fukifino: OH! man those last oil portraits on your SKB are amazing man,
my jaw droped to the foor seriously! thaks for the post man, it good
to have around, thanks for the warm wellcome, REALLY!
seth1: he he he, hold those urges now seriusly
THANKS for the ecouragment it means the a lot to me!!!
madplanet: DUUUDE thanks for giving me such a cool complement
really Im so happy to har you recognized the eviroments, that is so
cool, thanks for the ecouragment, and I completly agree with
you I use my SKB as a diary of sorts, a visual one
mentler: Michel!! thanks for droping by I means the world to me
that you tooked the time to drop by my new SKB, thanks for the
ecouragment, ill start been activly posting at SOFA soon as well
SirSushi:Yes Sir! you can bet I drawed my ass off every day he he
Im glad to read you liked the sketchs
adraude: yeah I post lots of unsucessfull images becase that way maybe
one of the persons waching might have the solution for that image so
I belive is worth showing them to learn more form the comments of others,
and I did not posted all the stuff I did, I leaved like some pages out becuase
I was really tired of scaning Im glad you finded my SKB inspirational,
It means a whole lot to me, so THANKS for that!
Ok Im really tired and I should go to sleep early, il just say that Im
Really happy that all of you gave me such a warm wellcome on my
new daily journey to improve in the realms of life and arts so
thanks for this REALLY!!! CA RULES!

You have a really cool gestural line (don't know if thats the correct expression).
Muy bueno. Praga parece haber sido algo genial, me hubiese gustado poder haber ido. A lo mejor con suerte pueda ir al proximo (aunq lo dudo, pero voy a tratar!). Un saludo, y espero ver mas!
Those inks are working really well for you!
Your sketches of buildings/environments are awesome, such as the fountain, Notre Dame, inside the cathedral, etc.
And I think it's great that you are sketching so many different people from life.
Keep doing that!
