Digital Drawing

I spend all weekend learning how to use my Wacom Tablet properly, I've had this tablet for quite a while now but I never really pay attention to it as I should have. I remember along time ago when this Bamboo Tablets came out that I really wanted one so bad, but work and life got me so busy that my time was short to learn how to use this wonderful tablet. One day I saw them again at the store and just got one, but the poor tablet has been sitting there doing nothing.

So the other day I started looking at the possibilities with it and I was like really impress with others people work that they have done with this tablet. So I really sat down and got my hand on it, this is all new to me. When I was very young the only things that I had to draw or color with were a pencil, color pencils and paper. I was fascinated with coloring so soon I was enrolled in a Art Academy, this was only the beginning way back then. Anyway drawing on a tablet and the computer is a different story, but I manage by starting with some sketches. I have learn so much and I totally love it, is whole different ball game but my knowledge on Photoshop is advance and it was not hard for me to understand what I need it to do. What is hard to do is getting use to the Wacom Pencil and Tablet, I've find my self for some reason putting allot of pressure on my hand and makes allot of tension. I'm also out of practice, I haven't draw in a long time so bare with me. I really enjoy this so much and I want to get better at it, is been a long time since I haven't done work like this and sculpting has been another big thing now for me. I just need to get use to it, so here is my work for the weekend.

Night Fury Dragon - Toohless

I'ts Friday and ready for a cool weekend. The day today is beautiful, just want to go out there and do outdoors things. 

I thought at first I'll little by little post the videos that are done containing my sculptures, but then I thought is better if I just go with the flow. Yesterday I recorded a video about a small dragon from the movie How to Train your Dragon, Toothless the most awesome dragon in the movie in my opinion. I've create this little dragon with Black Polymer Clay and for the eyes the color green and detailing with acrylics. It was fun just working with black clay alone.

I'm also giving a hint on my next big project I'm doing so take a look...

Alien Sculpting Project

For the first time in a  long time I feel like I really want to create, draw and paint again. Somehow living all my childhood painting and drawing kind of bring me back to think that Art is what really matters in my heart. Even though I have always been involved with it somehow for many years this is something I really enjoy doing as much as other things I learn through out my life.

Past January I did my first Alien with Sculpey, this was very fun to do. I've always like Sci-Fi creatures, like in movies and video games. So I gave it shot, all out of my head so I've set up my video camera, and documented what I did. You will see part one where I did a small armature with foil and tape and then Sculpey. The second video is more about the painting.

A New Beginning

Hello, this will be a blog about my Art. Right now I'm in the process on gathering information and preparing this blog for a new outlook in my life as an Artist. Lately I've been inspired on getting back to my roots on drawing and sculpting but I will tell you more about it soon. I've been in the need of doing a blog that will only show my work of Art. So sit back with your coffee and enjoy what you will read and see here.
