Rescuing old work ... / Rescatando trabajos viejos ...

This is a sketch I feel particularly proud of. Don’t look for excellence in it, you won’t find it. It’s one of my favorite sketches for a very simple reason: It’s the first drawing I felt was good enough… I had been drawing people but this is the first time that I started to get at least a little satisfied with the result. It took me half an hour and I have to thank the guy sitting next to me who has pretty much motionless during those 30 minutes.


The next sketch is a 2 in 1 piece. It doesn’t really make much sense but it helped me realize, at the time, how hard it was to draw a guy hitting another guy’s head.


They were both done two years ago if I recall correctly. 2B Pencil.

Este boceto no es una maravilla. Creo que hace falta solamente una rápida mirada para descubrir errores típicos de principiante. Aún así, es uno de mis favoritos. Lo hice solamente observando a la persona que estaba sentada a mi lado. Cuando lo terminé me sentí bastante más satisfecho que con anteriores intentos. Es el resultado de media hora de trabajo, más o menos.



El siguiente boceto es bastante simplón. Me sirvió para descubrir lo difícil que era dibujar a un tipo aporreando la cabeza de otro tipo.


Ambos bocetos son aproximadamente de hace dos años. Lápiz 2B.
