I Changed My Mind...

I discarded the rough design in the post before. I don't know, the new concept I like way better than the previous one. The previous one was kind of... boring? The new one deploys a nice sort of battle or wrangle. That is, I guess, what I was looking for actually. Anyway, the finished piece will follow in a bit...

By the by, what is your favorite memory? (via Colossal)

By the by (2), an often asked question is what does your work place look like? Well, at this very moment I'm working at our kitchen table. There is not much of a reason for that. I'm just enjoying the feeling or vibe of not going to the office today...

  1. You have great character design sketches on here... and I love how all the digital sketches look so dynamic.looking at your work, made me try to sketch with tablet. something I have been avoiding for a long time. as i prefer the old fashioned pencil.

    thanks :) and keep up the good work.

  2. Fantastic! this sketch is really a funny one. Very best!!

  3. Cheers for the kind feedback, Rubens! BTW, still like working with pencils better, but I'm so much faster with the tablet.

    Javier, many thanks!! How's going?

  4. there is so much energy in your works, and though the designs you do are super incredible, i'm always looking at what they expressing and telling in the frame.
    that's genius:) super work.

  5. I always enjoy reading your blog! I save your posts for last as i like looking at the drawings thoroughly.

  6. Abhishek! Uuuuh, big thanks for that! :)))

    Claudio, thanks, too!

    Caerphilly, thanks for your kind feedback, I really appreciate that!

  7. This blog is just getting better and better with each new post!

    I learn to know new artists thanks you.

    You're one of my greatest sources of inspiration and motivation to continue to draw.

    You're more than an artist you are a true teacher in every aspect!

    Paperwalker turns 5this should not just pass, it should be celebrated!


  8. Neat. I do agree this one is much more dynamic than the other one (though the old one was cool, too). How long does it usually take you to come up and draw out these concepts?

  9. Anonymous, thanks a bunch for the compliments!! Wow! And right, the blog turns 5 this December. I guess I should do a little giveaway party here. Some Motorbirds T-shirts maybe...

    Andy, thanks! A concept like this, at this rough stage, takes me about 20 minutes or so. It depends on the details etc.

  10. By the way (2) is always great working on the kitchen table, my office is quite near, just the room beside my kitchen, but working on the same table I to eat with my family has another feeling.
