Stars

"Last night I looked up at the stars and matched each one with a reason why I love you. I was doing great until I ran out of stars."
(I did this one some time ago, inspired on this quote)

Spring

Crazy weather...



English:
Spring - "I have arrived!!!"
              "Ah ah ah!...
              "I was just kidding..."

Wonder Team


I'm so incredibly lucky to be working with this wonderful people: Sérgio Martins (and his brother Edgar, who is not in the picture; the other guy is a friend) and Carina Morais - Poet Anderson's main artistic team.
I'm learning more in a few months than in all the years combined! Sérgio's been like an animation mentor to me, He inspires me to go beyond the limits. :)

I suspect in the next few years you're gonna hear much more about Sérgio Martins and Edgar Martins in the animation field. ;) Stay tuned!

Wings


Drawn digitally, very loosely, no detailed finishing touches. While listening to some chillout/chillstep music. One of my favorite types when I'm drawing dance stuff... ^_^

Flu

This is me yesterday. :P
And, yes... I'm sick today. Surprisingly better to work than the day before, even though I almost didn't sleep tonight. Go figure!

Translation:
- There are days when we wake up so, so sleepy...

- ... that no matter how much coffee and other stimulants, walks outside, or listen to pretty energetic music...

- ... the whole day is nothing but a struggle between wanting to sleep the whole time and having to work.

- (DING DONG!) According to past times, I have an idea of what this means...

- Flu: I'M BAAAACK!!!!
Me: You're NOT welcome...

A Miracle of Nature

A tribute to the wolves of Yellowstone, for saving the whole ecosystem of that place. :):)
A miracle of Mother Nature's workings. *heart*
This video made me want to do it: How Wolves Change Rivers
(This drawing is made with pencil on paper, A3 size.)
Note: some photo references were used for the wolves

Drawings at CC

Hey y'all! :)
Today I'm sharing two of the originals I drew at Comic Con this year. Both of them were sold on the spot; The owner of the "horse" drawing was so kind to have it scanned for me. *heart* So grateful!
So far I wasn't so lucky with the other one. however. *sniff sniff* I'm glad I was able to take a picture of it, for the record...



Thank you all who stopped by! See you next year. :)

Starlight Drum Cover



Sharing the love!
Here is the song I've been learning lately: "Starlight", by Muse. :D I adore this song and I feel really happy to be playing it by now. It's been one of my goals since I started learning drums 3 or so months ago. I feel I've made a lot of progress in the past 3 weeks. *heart* (don't mind my seriousness, I'm super focused in listening to the song, because I never count tempo. I know I should! -_-;)
I'm very aware of how much I need to improve, however, so I will be focusing on technique in the next few months. I hope to be so much better when I return to share another drum video with you. :)

Split (dance animation)



I have finally finished it! :D This animation is overdue... Sorry to those who were waiting for it!
One day I experimented with giving life to one of my dance drawings and learned a lot in the process. Sometimes I wish I could animate only my dance stuff all day so I could create lots of different things!

Flowolf


When I named this picture spontaneously (as I usually do with naming) I didn't realize right then that Wolf is Flow written backwards. :) Now I love the name even more! *heart*

I have watched the movie Ashes and Snow on Saturday. I consider it one of the most inspiring things I've seen in my life! It reminded me so much of my dance drawings... It suddely hit me, while watching the movie, that my dancers are mostly underwater dancers and I didn't even know it, :)
One thing is for sure: after watching this precious master piece of a film, my art will never be the same anymore.

Finished Not Perfect





A powerful message for any creative! :) Especially for perfectionists, like me, who tend to let things unfinished just because they look far from what we wish them to be. Never too late to change that tendency. ;)

"The World need people who finish things".

Inktober #31 and drums!!

This is my last inktober entry. Yesterday I visited a special place that holds a lot of dear memories for me. I didn't return there in many years. Coincidentally, I had a dream of that place the night before, when I had no plans whatsoever to visit the next morning. :D I only visited because, by chance, I happened to be nearby. Perhaps the dream influenced me to go. Anyhow, I felt like drawing the moment. :)


Im also sharing another moment of yesterday: the recording of my first drum cover. :D A song by Angus and Julia Stone. I started to learn this song a month ago. I know I do a lot of mistakes, sorry! I'm a beginner who started about 2,5 months ago, with less than 1 hour or so per week on the drum set. ;) So, still, I'm very happy to have learnt a song by now! (two, actually)
I'm already training another one, much more challenging for me, but still relatively easy for an experienced drummer. I'm happy and excited with it! Hope I can share it soon than I think, ahah!
