Hi, I'm Ruben Santos.
I recently realized something. I have a whole story in my Bio if you care to check that out, but I've recently come back to drawing, and sometimes we feel sure of what we want to do in life ( for me it was concept art ) but not really... we just think we want that, and it's hard to really be sure, what will fullfill you in life.
Recently I took this comission for a friend, she wanted a drawing made for her boyfriends Birthday and I took it, I felt like this needed to be something special, so I asked her, what did he liked what she liked, etc.
Now, I never took such a big project, I, before I stoped drawing for a Year, never felt capable of such things, so I sticked to what I knew ( the easy way ) and that's why I stopped, no progress...
That changed with this drawing, once I never drew Women that much, I was never able to, never drew poses and full bodies that often as well! but for this drawing it had to be done, and taking that challanged changed me, and I did what I can only say it's one of my best works! ( it's on my wall
I no longer wish to be a concept artist, and I found for sure, what I wish to do with my life, become an Ilustrator.
I wonder, what was the work, or thing that made that change for you... and if you still haven't found that change, let this be inspiration.
Look at it... it doesn't even look like it's mine. ( Work in Progress )
