Update (SUNDAY, August 24, 2008): One can draw pretty good here :) Currently, I'm preparing a couple of new sample drawings (some birdish critters - it's a good practice for me for the upcoming StarDucks project) for lectures I'll hold both at the IPES Institute for Advanced Studies and the Animation Campus Academy in Montevideo. I plan to post the finished pieces a little later.

Finally, I had my first mate tea. Very tasty.

Alpine Switchbird

I've switched continents and hemispheres for the next couple of weeks. I'll post more, soon...

BTW: Tea is a brisk business here. They drink mate almost anywhere and all day long.

Duck Armour

Alright, as Jake posted a dragon and Oliver put a duck on his blog I couldn't resist but to follow in hot pursuit...

MS Seapunk

I showed Mrs Potts once before, but did I show her neighbour's yacht? (Both designs are for a children's production led by writer and composer Henry Muldrow)

Usually, I start drawing small sketches of the character / vehicle / bg I'm aiming at. Then I continue with sketches in the final scale.
