Cargo Ship


I decided to try painting the previous drawing as an exercise. It took me a couple of hours and here`s the result. I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I enjoyed doing it!

Adorei os efeitos de côr, do céu e trovoada constratando com o mar. Abraço e continuação de bom trabalho

Really good, dude!
Excellent work on the sea, very impressive!
The blue android is one of my favourite pictures in your blog! Trully impressive.
At the proper size it would fit perfectly as a desktop wallpaper.
Cheers

Hey Ricardo, sorry I didn't show up last class. But I drew the cat position studies and I am already thinking about the crown design. At least I got to paint this week. Every week I have a Gouache color scale to do. And since I got the size of the damn thing wrong, I got to paint everything twice! Ho-Ho It's always lovely...not.
Kisses, I am, however, coming next class.

Hi Everyone.

David: I`ts always an honour to have you watching my blog. Thanks for the kind words!!

Bog: Thanks dude! I`ll post the finished Android Illustration soon. The great advantage of using silhouettes is focusing on the overall shape, design and readability without worrying about minor details. It`s a great exercise. Try it out!!

Gon: Obrigado pelo comentarios amigo!!

Fred: Thanks for the words man. I`ll send you soon the Android piece so you can see it, and perhaps use as a Wallpaper. Cheers!

Bog: Thanks my friend. Already working on it!!

Carol: Don`t worry babe!! I do everything at least ten times until getting it right...

Maritze: Thanks!!! I already linked you back!! Your work is very beautiful!!

Nacho: Thanks my friend!!

Bog: mmmm... you paint a lot faster than me man... Thanks again!

Jorn: Thanks dude!! And thanks to your wife, hahaha.. Good to have you back!!
