Once upon a time, back to the time I’d just moved back to my parents’ house for some time and created this weblog, the contents of this realm used to be almost exclusively craft in the real world, the place of flesh and bones, of paper and ink. Time went by and somewhere in the year of 2009, after a considerable hiatus, the entries switched in a large majority to virtual works. Well, I myself believe it’s time to get back to the good ol’ days.
Not that I’m saying traditional media is intrinsically superior to digital, away with that! Almost all my work, real work like my college graduation project and the assets for Aduge‘s games, is done digitally (except that whole mess of sketches). But the passion that I have for the natural media is such that today I’ve decided to hereby declare the Watchtower a haven for my traditional work, so both I’d have a place to collect my draughtsmanship and a motivation to do more of this exquisite craft.
By the by, more Do and less Talk: this is the latest ink drawing I’ve finished, a tattoo idea for a very esteemed friend. It’s a human skull argent supported by two raven wings proper. The skull was done with micron pens of assorted mesures and the wings with brushes. Main references were the works of Yoji Shinkawa, best know by his excellent work as concept artist for Kojima Productions, and the also brazilian illustrator Kako (not incidentally both have great influence in all of my recent works).
This drawing was later reinterpreted by a tattooist here in Curitiba and since last week inhabits Marco’s left shoulder, the skull the size of a tangerine.
Should to post again soon, prolly with some drawing of the past 2 years that I didn’t manage to post yet. In the mean time expect me to do some new ones too, at least so I hope.
