Overcoming obstacles

The headline of this blogpost is the new title of my comic project formerly known as “Reminiscence.” I present to you: The previous title was too generic. And after some Googling I found out it`s also a jewellery brand and a remembrance project in numerous countries and for numerous causes. Another comic also used the exact same title already. Even though it`s on hiatus for a while and has few pages, I still felt uncomfortable…

Let`s face it, sometimes you can`t, or even don`t want to work on your personal projects. The last few weeks have been a struggle to keep working on my comic, illustrations and especially blog posts, due to my day job and some personal stuff. I feel like I had less creative energy. Yet I managed to finish a new blog post and to thumbnail my way through the intro pages of my comic. I want…

I`m back! With another subject for you to chew on. First, look at these two pictures: The left one was drawn a year ago, the other is from a few weeks ago. What is different about these two sketches? To me, the one on the right has much more energy in the lines, and bolder shapes. When analyzing this change, I discovered that my confidence in drawing had grown. I realized that there was some…

Hey everyone! So I missed last update, getting back into things after my holiday proved to be harder than I thought. I could tell you all about my travels or blog about the experience of expanding your world and how it feeds your imagination but that’s something for another time.

We had to make a colour script of a black and white movie. I was assigned Casablanca, I love this movie! Here is what I have so far: I need to revisit it since it didn`t get finished (first few panels took me a…

When I was younger I used to think that a good artist didn`t need to use reference. That a sign of becoming better at drawing was that you needed less and less reference. You`d learn how to draw all kinds of architecture, clothing, anatomy and landscapes from memory and your creativity did the rest and helped you with your ideas to bring in the variation. Boy, was I wrong. Reference will improve your art, whether…

This was the result of the Painting Drama 2 homework this week. We were supposed to make four paintings, each with a different lighting and atmosphere. But I was short in time to work on the course this week. We have a break right now so I hope to do some catch up, but we have a pretty epic assignment as well so we’ll see how that plays out. This is a scene from the…
