Bird Watching

I've been experiencing with technical pens for the last week and this is my first sketch all done with it, no brush or dip pen. It is unfinished but I do not believe I'll ever finish it so I'm just posting it.

The two guys in the picture are Alan, an english bird expert, and Juarez, the president of Eco Education at a natural park in ItapoĆ”, Santa Catarina.

[WIP] Nei Ruffino - update 2

Done some hatching and crosshatching using a tecnical pen (rotring 0.3). There are some good parts but the overall sketch I'm sure I blew. It looked a lot better on pencils.

[WIP] Nei Ruffino - update 1

Just added a background using a toothbrush ink splater. I'm still geting the hang of it.

I've being trying to get a grasp of how to work with colors for quite a few years but it still seems as black magic to me. This is my latest adventure with watercolors and it shows how much I still need to learn about colors as well as painting.

ps. The scan is really bad because my trusty old scanjet 4c is dying on me so I had to use my new USB scanner for which the sane driver is still alpha quality. As soon as I get a decent scan I'll update it.

Friendship is a priceless gift. It is always given, not taken. It forms the bounds that link us together as people, as a comunity. It may be a local comunity as it may be a global networked comunity but friendship is the gift that bind us, that gives us the pourpose to still try to interact with other human beings.
