Back again

CiaoI am back drawing again, after nearly two years of pausing where I was opening my new life in Sardinia. I moved in Sant'Antioco where me and my love opened a Bed and breakfast.This time somehow helped me regain the love for draw.I now draw in pencil much more than I was before and my mind is more clear.I'm sorry if my english is a bit creative too, but anyway this year I will try to blog more here, not that I really know what to write.The 3 new images I've drawn and uploeded here... continue reading

An important keyword

I'm mostly an illustrator and have many pencil drawings in my portfolio. They have very different subjects: from fantasy dragons to common landscapes, but it's curious that often they (despite they variety) used to be found by the same keyword - sketch - and bought then. Just a peice of advice for fellow illustrators: if you have pencil drawings in your portfolio, don't forget to add the keyword "sketch" to all of them, this simple action will bring you many sales. continue reading

Colored pencils (crayons)

Drawing with crayons is a usual child business, isn't it? But I tried them again, not long ago and can say that very interesting effects can be made that way, and it's really worth trying.So there are some tips from me if you are eager to try:1.

Place light tones and leave blank spaces for highlights. For example,... continue reading

What you can do with pencil drawn pictures

Someone said that pencil in artwork is the same as piano in music. It's a base for everything. And for unknown reason I like it best of all. So as the black&white pictures and retro photos.

They're black and white, but it doesn't mean that I don't like color.When I want to add some color to the picture, I prefer to use computer... continue reading
