Waiting for Nicolas

Almost literally.
Nicolas is our first baby and we're expecting him to be born on 10/10/10; but who knows, maybe a few days before, maybe a few days after. excitement is mounting!

Subway rider

Saw her a few days ago, while riding the subway to the doctor's office to take a peek at Nicolas. She seemed friendly, just slightly menacing.

One exercise I was advised to do by Kyle Balda at Gobelins was to study this sequence of the movie The Sweet Smell of Success.
This is my first study in storyboard from. The scene is somewhat complex from a layout point of view, so that will be my next step.

Weekend Sketches

Of course, this guy again. I am searching for his personality, that's why I explore this character so much; I think I am almost there, but still have to show him interacting with some people.

A "Nueve", fifties style

After a good illustration by Joe Bowler ( Joe, please dont "pull my legs" as I sleep tonight)

some color and some greys

It's embarrassing that I dont know his exact name, but was it Monet or Manet that painted Notre Dame over and over under different light conditions? I should always keep him in mind, since I should always go back to drawings I've done before and study what worked, what didn't and just rework it to death.

Sketches Sept 1/2010

The guy in the subway I saw last night; he wasnt particularly angry, it's just that the framing that this other guy in front of him and the lines of the subway car created were so great; that's what I tried to draw. I didnt want the drawing to come out so clean, but I re-arranged the figures to death so at the end I was using tracing paper to get the image done. The girls are just two smoking/chatting/lunchbreaking chicks I could see from the conf table of my office while I was having lunch.

Sketchbook #2

More from the past 3 days

Sketchbook Scans

Pages from the last 3 days; Bolivar keeps coming up every day; The angry looking girl would be Bolivar's lover; and the rest are people I see either in the subway or from the window of the office while having lunch.
Oh yes, and "Kiler"; the first character I drew when I was about 16.

Character Design

For the short "The Farmer"; this is just the first pass, the farmer is almost there, but the girl should be more innocent and fresh, not looking so right now....

The Viceroy

This is Viceroy Samano, one of the characters from my story. He's a bit too dressed up and I have to simplify the outfit so that I can animate it easily, but for now this is the concept.

New animation

concept drawings for my new animation project.
The working Title is NEIGHBORS and is the story of a conflict between (of course) two neighbors.
I havent done and animatic yet or even timed the action in my head, but I am thinking it will be between 90 and 120 seconds. My country of citizenship (Colombia) celebrates 200 years of independence from Spain in July 20, 2010 so the goal is to finish it by end of April or mid May, hoping to show it there.
Thanks for watching, any comments, and I mean ANY, are very welcome.
