... and I'm very demanding

Rizzoli & Isles s03e02: the blue boys undercover as a couple. Gotta love every single Jane/Korsak interaction, it's usually a total laugh!

Second try with Inkling ...

I noticed that there are some stroke displacements here and there, e.g. Frost's nose is the most obvious one. However, it's kind of cool to see your whole lines retraced when you actually ain't doing anything, right? :)
Ah, this is from R&I S03E14 Over/Under. I just wish I got to see the softball game, it was about the only part of the episode I throughly enjoyed .

First test with Inkling

And it works better than I expected, but not quite, i.e. some pen strokes are slightly misplaced and the resulting sketch is not quite the same in paper (e.g. the eyes are a bit weird on screen). I'm betting one has to keep the notebook as flat and still as possible, too

This is (sort of) my Skyrim character, BTW

What doesn't kill you ...

Jane: You know people laugh at you behind your back!
Maura: Really? Well, they call you a bitch behind yours!

Welcome to the wonderful world of I can't get a scanner right now, so you're stuck with crappy smartphone pics for the time being.

Museum D'Orsay

If you're reading this, it means the world didn't end yesterday, so I'm still in my one-drawing a day schedule, although I can't promise anything during Xmas :)

Dolorous Edd

"We will defend the wall to the last man!" said Cotter Pyke.
"Probably me." Said Dolorous Edd, in a resigned voice.

Is is me or does this fella get the best quotes in the Guard?

El Dragon Verde

Yet another entry of my theme pubs spree. This one (The Green Dragon) is from Sevilla (Spain), and one of the owners did sculpt most of the stuff. Too bad they did not have any fancy drink but beer and the usual, I was sort of expecting some Lothlorien mead or whatever. Watercolors on a Stillman&Birn Alpha notebook

Dibujo Paris

Dibujo Paris is a superb group of artists that meet periodically in Paris to draw together. Last sunday I was lucky to join them (thanks, Alejandra!!) and get a chance to do 15 minutes portraits of the wonderful models who posed for us during the afternoon. Here is what I got.

Fighting for the greater good

I just found this old sketch inside a book, from the time I started playing with watercolors. Lucy Lawless as Xena, the Warrior Princess. Some episodes were really awful, but there were also some amazing ones (season 5 fully excluded, mind ya)
