Dreams – Elephant downstairs

After a bit of “training” I’ve been able to recall almost all y dreams, and with some effort and time I can translate them to detailed narrations. Sadly I cannot share them all at the moment as most of the are Spanish only. This one is very short as I was unable to sit to write it until the day after. I apologize in advance for my English in development)

The dream

Elephant downstairs

I could not write this dream until the day after. I just remember that under the room where we slept in the place where the living room with the big windows was, dwelled an elephant that always used his roar voice to call our attention over the things we did that damaged his mother. Sometimes he would show his nose from the staircase to sniff out to verify we did good. Not wasting any water, not wasting any paper. Some other times you could see his head from the window, and in rare times you could see a big round eye vigilant of our actions. He was not a bad Elephant and we never felt harassed, after all, if his mother died he would die too, and so do we, because his mother was our mother too.


Sketches 02 February

Here are some sketches from today. I am focusing less on reference drawing and more on creativity explosiveness :p

30 minutes of sketching

I set times for my sketching/coloring/anything sessions. Each full session is worth 1hr of continuous work. The following drawings were done in half a session today and, as you can see, there are not a lot of them.

Not much to upload as lately I’ve been working on my physical sketchbook but, working with the tablet has given me a lot of control with my pencils. :]

July the 2nd: sketches and a Mine

A short review of FZD school student’s galleries reveals that I lack in several areas. To get over that, sketching is not enough.
[Una revisión rápida de las galerías de estudiantes de la escuela de Diseño FZD revela que fallo en muchísimas áreas, Para superar eso bocetar no es suficiente.]

Today’s session focused on getting things done trough a concept/project using the perspective and sketch skills I’ve been developing. The material done on paper and pencils cannot be displayed as I have no proper way to capture the data. but I’ll share some of the digital sketches, these focused on the place where the project took place.
[La sesión de hoy se centró en aprender a través de un proyecto/concepto, usando lo aprendido al bocetar y al hacer perspectivas y análisis de composiciónes. El material que se realizó en papel y lápiz no es posible capturarlo de forma apropiada, por lo tanto no lo podré mostrar.]

Sketch dump June #02

First, references

Sketches using reference. There is a little of everything, gesture quick driven drawings, Structural drawings aimed to find the geometry of the form. Color studies, get as close as the picture without sampling from the image. As always in life there are some good results and lots of bad ones.

Second, no reference

In a proper work piece, I believe there should always be some reference, be it form inspiration purposes or for understanding. Reference it’s not only about copying. In this case I leave out any reference and try to draw following a set of ideas. The results are very poor in content, I’m afraid.

April sketches session 1

Quality over quantity… but then I remembered that Colorathis is not about results but the process. All reference sketches done so far in April
[ Calidad sobre cantidad… luego recordé que Colorathis es sobre el proceso no los resultados. Así pues subo todos los sketches de referencia hechos hasta ahora en Abril]
