Once I was called a very resolved man, after all I graduated on Physics because I wanted to be an artist.

Some other people calls me a vampire, because of my unusual ways. Some calls me Pablo Picasso because of my mustache (don't ask!). And some calls me an artist, mostly for reasons other than I'd call myself an artist.

My favorite tools of art are inking with paintbrushes and watercolors.

Moreover, I play violin and some other instruments (Physics, violin and arts, I do have a thing for difficult stuff!).

Transylvanian
While painting this I reminded of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Lineart with Tigre sable fur brush nº 2 and nº 4, india ink, watercolor. Renaud paper (180g/m2).

It's magic
A spontaneous sprout of a fairy. I had an urge to make some watercolor, so there it is.

The title relates to the music by T-Square, which is recommended.

It's that time of the year again, applying exams, writing a journal and enjoying the cold weather.

As a function of everything I've been doing this last year (since my last journal entry), my life has become kind of a huge training session. Almost all of my time is spent training something, even if I'm relaxing, I'm training relaxing.

To keep it short and spontaneous, I'll talk about stuff where I had a clear development, basically in music and kung-fu. In music, I've joined a band (we play mostly brazillian music), and got a few new instruments, as well as doing a jazz music theory course. One of the new instruments is the clarinet, which I'm learning by myself, and since it's my first wind instrument I'm learning almost from zero. The daily progress is sensible though, I can feel (and hear) the sound improving with every practice (the progress is much more clear for me than it was when I first learned the violin, some ten years ago). With music theory and, more recently ear training, my understanding of music as a whole, and how I listen to music has changed a lot. I'm developing the abilty to understand the underlying harmony in music and play along. This ability is something that I've never had before, and I guess most people don't even think about when they listen to music. I want to dedicate some time on a objective musical project soon.

In kung-fu training my development is more like the violin was so many years ago, since I actually started from zero last year. Since kung-fu has so many techniques (much more than any other martial art as far as I'm aware), its easy to get overwhelmed and learn nothing in the beggining. But now, after a bit more than a year of practice, things are getting better, my movements are less sloppy, I understand more clearly the nature of each technique and what and when to use them. There are some movements that I can do now which I would never think about some years ago, like jumping really high, rolling and kicking. I'm practicing with the nunchaku as well. Of course, there is still a long way to go, and I don't plan to stop training anytime ever.

There are still a lot of other things going on, maybe I'll write about them someday.
Castle2
A bit of a study for medieval middle-eastern castles for a comic book. I recently found out that the castle style that I needed was the byzantine, more like the previous Castle1. This one is more of a crusader style.
