Practice practice

 

I always try to start the day with a few poses, especially if I am going to be drawing for a while, just to warm up. It is a fast exercise, the poses are tiny and I just try and make them dynamic. As you can see, I don’t always succeed but I can see an improvement from week to week in that area. The purpose of making them small is not to feel tempted to add much detail and to produce a lot of them fast.

Do you have an exercise that you recommend as warm up before getting serious?

Siempre intento empezar las sesiones de dibujo con una tanda rápida de poses. Las hago en pequeñito para evitar la tentación de perderme en los detalles e intento que sean lo más dinámicas posible. A veces es frustrante porque no consigues plasmar el movimiento que tienes en la cabeza pero poco a poco se va mejorando en eso.

¿Hay algún ejercicio que usas para calentar motores antes de meterte de lleno en la tarea del día?

That’s all, folks! The last two workshops with the people from the Egmont Creative Center were in September and November. It was sad in a way, cause the whole experience has been super fun and very intense and it is a shame that it is over. We have had these art monsters teaching us about the industry and comic art, it’s been mindblowing and I can see by looking at the drawings from before and after that I have grown and learnt and improved a great deal.

Now that I remember the long Christmas nights preparing portfolio pieces I am convinced that it was all 100% worth it.

I have nothing spectacular to show from the last two workshops as we mostly worked on polishing everything else we had already been through until the summer. We also did some inking and planned the visual narrative for the final assignment, from which you can see bits below.

Meditation Meditation 2

I wrote a gag about how Donald tries to do some yoga for self-improvement. Just go figure how that goes. On the left you can see the main idea for the cover. For some reason, drawing Donald with that huge guru turban is something I’ve been wanting to do.

Now that the final assignment is due a final evaluation is coming where they will tell us if the progression through the year has been good enough to get to the level they are looking for in new artists and if not, what is left to improveo to get there. I am excited about that meeting in either way.

Just a quickie to wish you all a belated Happy Valentines!

I started it really late in the day but I wanted to do it anyway to thank you all who are still with me despite the fact that I am so inconstant in here. In the weeks to come I am going to be showing and telling you about what I have been up to in the last months of silence.

Long time no see! I have so much to tell you all, like where have I been, what have I been doing, how’s life and how did the Disney comic course wrapped. But for now, my yearly Ororo with love. ❤

After all year drawing ducks you really should have seen this one coming. :o)
