Lunch time line-up


A bit more recent artwork today. These drawings are from my lunch time trips at Sony with the 'Sketchclub' gang, hunting for types and characters who would spark our imaginations up a bit. Sweet memories!

Em quedo amb el payo negre que està d'esquena. Envejo la teva soltura, és d'una força apabullant...salut Marcos!

Number 12 is my favorite!:oD I also like the old man seating on the bench.

Josh Kao said...

these are great, you totally captured the characters of these people!

Jeffrey Lai said...

so cool!
my fav is also the man sitting on the seat! really like how you've captured his posture. sort of has a 'swoosh' to it (i'm not sure how else to describe it haha)

Jason Brubaker said...

Marcos, I've really been enjoying your blog. These are great looking sketches.

Jörn said...

I like the style of your lines together with the coloring. Number 12 looks really realistic and the bench-mans linework seems to be from the 18th century. Thumbs up.

Alexander said...

vaya, yo me quedo con el hombre sentado en el banco..... por llevar la contraria......, no es broma....tienes mucha soltura en los trazos........ enorabuena..

Lo que me encanta es cómo se diferencia lo que es la tela y lo que es carne y hueso. En el famoso 12, se siente como se pega la camiseta al cacho de "lomo" y ya después más abajo se suelta. Lo mismo el del park bench, cómo contrasta la pierna huesuda con la
amplia botamanga del pantalón. Es genial que el dibujo del natural lo mantengas siempre vivo! Te mando un gran saludo.

Hey Andrey! You just took the words out of my mouth!
Number 12 and the Old man on the bench are my favorite, too!!! :)
Great stuff Marcos...

Great work as always, thank you for stopping by. It's such a great honor to see the name of one of the greats in my blog.

Marcos Mateu said...

-Gracies Jose Ramon!

-Moltes gracies Ernest, m'agrada rebre noticies teves!

-Thanks Andrei, I see number 12 is quite popular, I hope all is well in London.

-Thanks Josh, it really was fun going out and sketching real people as most of the day one ends up working only from imagination!

-Your description sounds convincing to me! :) Thanks for your comment Jeffrey.

-Thank you very much Jason.

-Thanks Jörn. One of the good things of this exercise is that obviously there is no style to follow, so, as you said, we could always try something new at any point!

-Muchas gracias Alexander, saludos a Barcelona!

-Thank you very much for your comment and link John!

-Muchisimas gracias Ernesto, ya veo que te miras las cosas a fondo... fancamente interesante tu comentario!

-Thanks Boris, this number 12 guy would like to know the gang appreciates his 'Hulk' looks! :)

-Gracias Salba! saludos y espero que todo vaya bien por Madrid

-Thank you very much for your visit and comment Roy
