Daily Spitpaint

Well... I think I'm finally doing things worth showing. These are 30 minute illustrations from several given topics at the Daily Spitpaint facebook group.
I surpassed the 30 minute deadline more than a couple of times and I'm not proud of that, but I'm learning A LOT through this quick paintings.

I try to take the most advantage of doing them, and so I focus on a weakness of mine at a time (mostly light values and colour this last ones). Great exercise. At the beginning the time constraint is a paint but it forces you to stay focused on the base and the big elements first and avoid innecessary detail.

guardian temple
broken heart

old barbarian
tobots in the mist
scary canyon
wish it was truly scary xP

This also gives me the oportunity to test diferent stylistic approaches and try to find my own. And It's fuuuuuuun :D

The summoning + Door of Dreams (AKA: had fun, don't ask me what it means)

Had a great time doing this one. Focused on composition, values and volume/perspective, and a little storytelling. Only a little.

Hope you like it!

African masks + Toppi = inspiration

 So... last friday we went with some friends to an african ambiented bar. I happened to carry my new acordeon-like minimoleskine and the pen pack and got inspired. I did the left side of the first scan there and the rest as I found the time.

Had a lot of fun emulating the style of the master Toppi and trying new things (specially in the last one).

Also I did no pencil sketch, it was all mental planning and improvisation. A great exercise!
