horse anatomy study

A few weeks ago i realized after listening to this interview of Terryl Whitlatch, one of my favourite creature artists alongside Brynn Metheney, anatomy really is key in concept art. Its funny how ones mind attempts to find easy ways out of doing something, just to realize you have to take a few steps back to learn what you should have tried to learn years prior. Thats exactly what ive "moved back" to do.

starting with horse anatomy.

animal studies to broaden my visual library, done in ballpoint pen while also attempting to understand the form without too much detail.

a few days ago i made a schedule to practice animal anatomy, or drawing animals in general in attempts to broaden my visual library. the materials being used were simply a ballpoint pen. also as an incentive to use the rubber less and focus more on the marks i make.

here were this weeks results :) (apologies for the sub-par quality, still need to get a scanner....)

this blog has been empty for about, 3 years?

i actually had trouble remembering what the name of this blog is for the simply reason to reboot it.

as this is the first post since then i think the best would be me reintroducing myself from this 3 year gap that I have made, my name is Sandro Girardi. I've been drawing for a while now but I never quite knew what I wanted, since my childhood I've been drawing. I would draw in front of my T.V, using little Warhammer figurines as models basically. I would draw monsters, mech's, characters. or try at least, not all resulted in anything.

I'm 22 now, spent  few years in a fantastic academy filled with people with an incredible thirst for learning, this sparking a thirst which lay dormant within myself. once this thirst began I instantly thought of my blog I had left behind so many years ago. as I stated earlier, my aim was to reboot this and transform it into an excuse to document my learning. its an excuse for me to see i am improving and for others to see that it is possible.

now, having said this, ill start off slow, once a week. updating with what i have done throughout the week.
