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. ❤

Ororo 2014

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


It’s that time of the year again!  Yes, the time when I do a fast sketch of Ororo Munroe (Storm) and get very happy because I see I got better comparing it to the one I drew last year.

So, first, last year’s Ororo:

Now, 2013’s Ororo.

2013 Ororo 2


I’m ashamed of her left arm, it’s awful, honestly. I clearly need to draw a few hundred hands and arms this year!

Yes! I made it through the year, and even if I’ve been slacking off for several months and haven’t been around so much I’m proud to say that all the blog statistics increased dramatically. This year I posted twice as many posts as I did post the year before, the blog received almost three times more visits than the previous year, and the number of followers bursted! Thank you all 🙂

And now it’s that time of the year again… Let’s go for some serious Ororo-ing!

2012’s Ororo

Better? Same? Worse?

So it’s been this long, huh? Oops o:)

We’ve been running smooth and lazy for one year now! So it’s time for a check point.

2010’s Ororo vs. 2011’s Ororo. You tell me, better? worse? same?

Come on! There’s candy for the brave! BD

Previous checkpoint (and first post ever of this blog!)


How are you doing?

I’m Viole Rodrigo and I’m weird yet cool. As the subtitle of the blog prays, I’m going, from now on, to try get to make a living as a penciler/illustrator and if I don’t get there, I’ll always have the architecture degree I’m still struggling to get.

I’m a traveler and a student; I also have some ideas of how things should work and I’m willing to share with you all my tips for improving your drawing skills, as well as make you think some. For more personal information about me, there will be an “About the Author” coming soon.

Now I declared my intentions, I’d rather go into the main matter of interest. You might be thinking: “So you want to go pro… Show us your skills!”. There I go:

* The first image is from Oct. 2004, and it was my first day of a 4 years long illustration course I started just for fun. We were asked to draw a superheroe (I chose Ororo Munroe, Storm) before getting started, to help determine our level.

* The second one is from Jan. this year (2010). I remembered that assignment back in 2004, and decided to make a fast sketch, just so I could compare.

So now you’ve seen where I was and where I am, and if you keep tunned, you’ll see where I’ll be going next.

Keep it cool 😉

P.S. As I write this lines I happen to be a spanish student spending one year as a exchange student in southern Sweden spending one month in Manila (Philippines) for a studio trip, that can only be interesting!
