YATTAcoffee :-)

Chatting with my buddy Tommaso,
I had some crits about the way I finalize my drawings. He told me to push more and to try to leave my ruff taste.-
He's totally right so from today on, I'll try to do that as much I can. And because I was going to start a little project in my mind I went to Blenz coffe and I tryed to do some sketches.
I can't talk about that for now 'cause it's a secret project but just to make you a little bit of curiosity... I called that sketchy hour Yattacoffe :-)

Insane Turtle-man

TOday's secret ChiuStrem contest was about drawing and Insane Turtle-man in one hour.- than time to upload, time start time to focus.- Pratically I did this gardbage.- Next time I wouldn't make the BG and also I'll do it in Pen.- :-)

But I had fun

Croco Deviant Contest

Hello everyone!
Firstly I have to say thanks to everyone who voted for me at the Travis Louie's Sketchoholic today contest; I had the first position! I was also happy to see a lot of good artists there (my favourite at all: Dalostboyz, Juanpablo Casstromora and Rapson) I had lots of fun (thank you Bobby Chiu!)

After that I finally opened a Deviantart account I am ilPusher and I had a request to take part on a contest.- I'm very busy right now but I mean.. it was so interesting! So.. I did it! I did this sketch first:

I realized that the proportions of this crocodile were to boring.- Then I worked a little bit more and I did this:

I did another sketch for the same contest, I'll try to do it tomorrow (or this weekend).- I also have a secret project that I'm going to tell you soon!

Thanks for watching me!!

Facebook lies! Beautiful girl need also a good timing!

I saw this girl on facebook. She was beautiful. I fell in love with her in like.. 2 seconds!In every photo she was looking georgeus!

I had a date. I went there. I was excited! I did a very ruff drawing of her by memory:

Ok. Good proportions. Good looking girl. Just.. A model! Perfect. But sometimes photos lie.- A good girl needs also a good timing. She had a very cool keyframes (every time she had to take a photo) and very bad and slow inbetweens (real life)

I did those sketches to visualize that.-the first and the last one are the photo she did. Numbers are random of corse.. but she was something like that! ahahhaha!

So the meaning is: take care of facebook!

Sfida a ritmo di danza! A book where I worked for

It's finally on sale the book I drew, inked and colored last summer for Piemme!
I'm so happy that I have the opportunity to work for them.-

never feed a frog with spaghetti, please!

I finally found my sister today, on Skype.

I told her to go on to see the anphibian I did for a contest .

She didn't like it.

She doesn't like that stuff. I don't like when my sister doesn't like my drawings. That's why I did another one. I think that it's better than the other one, not because of the style but because of the pose itself, more interesting and funny.

I did it in about 3 hours and 30 min (15 min for some thumbnails and the sketch, about 20 min to ink it and about 3 hours to color it).- I had a lot of fun. Now it's time to go back to work on my storyboard :-)

Sometimes we draw something but we don't know why.
I'll tell you why I did this:
I miss my guitar and I really want a real girlfriend.
So, what is better than a girl with a guitar for me?-

I'm going to work on this drawing and send it to Santa, maybe I'll find those things under my next Xmas tree :-)

Kiss me (if you can)

Thanks to Bobby Chiu inspiration,
I did this experiment in about 2 hours (15min for the ruff drawing, 30min for the digital ink, the rest for coloring).-
Thanks Bobby Chiu for all of your advices and for this awesome idea to have an assignment every week.- I think, expecially when we lack in inspiration this is a good way to turn our brain on! It was for fun, I really don't care about the contest itself, I love to be part of that community!

I hope you guys find in every of my drawing that I had fun!
