For anyone interested in cafe sketching

Hey everyone,

On mondays, wednesdays, and even thursdays, I get out of class around the same time (3:45pm). Around this time if I'm feeling up to it I usually head over to the TSU to draw people in a more lively setting. If anyone is interested in joining me in some sketch sessions you can e-mail me at mravelo87@gmail.com or message me here so we can trade contact info.

I already have one of my friends joining me on occasion. We're planning on bringing a camera next time to take photos of several poses so if anyone needs some this would be a great opportunity too. Our plan is to trade sketchbooks, ideas, and suggestions while sketching at least for an hour or so.

Anyways, if anyone is interested, just let me know. See everyone in class.

I'm done!

Hey everyone,

My project 3... as it should be finalized. Hope you enjoy.


Dedicated to the memory of Master Kordulus

Hey everyone,

Here is a watercolor painting I just finished (excited to post it because its finished!) Included are photographs of the painting at different stages of completion. I've always seen artists post step-by-step shots... this would be a first for me, so I did it. Took me several days - I never tally up the hours... another first I should do.  In a few of the pictures you can see the yellow masking I used, I try not to use it though unless its really necessary. I hate the stuff because it smells so bad and edges don't always come out as clean as I want them to.

Anyways, hope you enjoy, I know I did.
Heres hoping its a good grade :)

Pixar here I come!

Hey everyone,

Here is my 3D eyeball for the week. I really think I've got a future job at Dreamworks.

Boys and girls... The chocolate factory...

Hey everyone,

I visited the Fullerton Arboretum yesterday for my watercolor painting class. We had to take photographs for reference because we're going to be painting a large landscape in a couple of weeks. I'm excited but I can't be too concerned since I've got a floral painting that needs to be finished first! Anyway, I took a great deal of shots (it was my only class for the day and I didn't want to waste a trip, plus it was a nice day) and I think I've narrowed them down to my top 5 picks. See one you like? Let me know!

Also one more thing, there was an overcast during all these shots so I feel they all have this coldness to them. I was thinking of editing them to give them a more warm look but I'm not too sure, what do you think? All that green and blue seems so unbalanced.


Burning the midnight oil
