Crowd


This crowd passed by my Cintiq. Next thing I knew they were gone...
(The more it goes, the more I love this tool by the way)

Beautiful stuff Marcos! It may be jealousy of your cintiq talking but I'd almost rather see these done in ink and marker. btw I just picked up a copy of Framed Ink, truly inspiring work, thank you for getting it published.

me too,I just received your book! thank you so much for this great educational tool. I really enjoy the clear structure and ease to browse it. Your drawings are, off course, top notch. The treatment that you are using is very powerful.
It is the only book on layout and composition that i found, that is talking about Lighting as a composition tool with such depth. I remember when Gil zimmerman and Ken Duncan were talking about the importance of the shadow shapes on Sharkslayer....oops, I mean, sharktales; I've always wanted more information by a professional about how much Lighting can support and enhance the composition of a frame.
Thank you again.

Precioso trabajo de retratos, amigo Marcos.

-Thanks Dan!
Actually, one of the good things about Cintiq is that the results don't defer much to the ones achieved with more traditional techniques. In fact the main difference is maneuverabilty and the chance to work much faster.

-Bil, thank you very much for your view on the book and the whole issue of lighting and composition!

-Thanks Andrei!

-Thank you Chris!

-Muchas gracias Jesus.
Igual habras notado que no paseo demasiado por blogs ultimamente y es que por diferentes razones el tiempo no me esta dando para mucho mas. Me 'conecto' de vuelta en cuato pueda!
Un abrazo

They certainly were looking at your Cintiq, judging from the expressions! Actually, I would too. But man, those are beautiful sketches. It's like a Mafia film, with all the characters going past!

Wonderful drawings! I love the confident linework. Also, thanks for teaching the class at LAAFA. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot from the lectures, demos, and exercises. My book just came in from Amazon and it's also fantastic. Anyway, happy holidays!
