Personal Quote: Murphy was an Optimist
It has been a hard last couple of months. Pressure is building up, I needed to vent stress or risking some serious health problems. I took the notebook on friday, I did some sketching and drawing, and the result was so-so.

Now on Saturday, inspiration got to me. As Picasso used to say, "I wake up early in the morning and start doing things, so in case the inspiration comes, I'm already working". That was what happened. I just finished one drawing, and without putting down the notebook, I began sketching the next. No pause, no "I'll go to pee and let this rest for a while". It hit me between the eyes. The same character I had just drawn, fighting a huge cyborg, the size difference almost ludicrous. She would be facing him, showing us her back, flexed, strained because of the enormous force of the cyborg. I saw the picture clearly in my mind, so I went for it.

I went for the clean line approach. Few line weight variations, no crosshatch and no ink blotches. Just the line. After that, I scanned the picture (you never know what might happen) and I began shading, using markers. I must say I had never done something serious in markers. Ever. In my opinion, markers were those things kids used to mess up all their drawings, and what really skilled designers used, with a combination of dark magic and arcane arts completely out of my reach, to produce awesome works. My dabble with markers was something in the lines of "oh, markers? yeah, those things that will pierce your paper and bleed out of the lines". All in all, I'm really satisfied on how this picture came out.

I've been sleeping less and less in order to draw, but even when I'm more tired, I feel better animically. Drawing really helps de-stress me.
  • Listening to: Paradise Lost - Draconian Times
  • Reading: The Strain
  • Watching: Pingu
  • Playing: No time to play. At all.
  • Eating: It's a wonder how can I do that anymore.
  • Drinking: Horrible filtered tap water.

Love your drawings! Do you do them just because? Or is it for something inparticular?
Blaquesmith Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, mostly because I need to vent my stress. I seldom have time to draw anymore, but last Saturday I was too stressed out, so I began doing this. Yeah, it's been a couple of days that I've been up late after work and after putting my daughter to bed, drawing, but it was worth it.

I usually take inspiration in my RPG characters (in this case, the girl is my character in an Eclipse Phase game, but the cyborg was done in the spot).

I wish I could work full time as an artist, but I don't even have the time to put a book together, and the last comic book page I drew was almost a year ago. Right now, the only time I have for myself is my night hours. After going to sleep at 2:30 for three days in a row, though, I'll say this is not an optimal solution.
