Sketch Crawl in Treviso, Italy, 04-19-14

last saturday I joined this group of artists and went to my very first sketch crawl! 
I mean, I had already made live sketches with some friends now and then, still I had never really tryed to take it seriously ....well I probabily dind't take it seriously enough this time even, I was so excited, and trying to catch every detail, I couldn't focus enough!
furthermore I was always chatting with others, so maybe that was the reason why I couldn't focus, I guess...
in fact down below you can see one among the pages I drawn, it's not so =) my friends and other sketchers did some really beautiful works, some can be seen  here:

by the way I got inspired, going around and seeing many beautiful things, so once at home I took the studies I made and re-made them with some calm : I guess this is cheating again... ^_^

Dorne, watercolors

up here, my sucking first try. as usual, I messed it up so badly that a certain moment I could think no more of any way of going on I left it incomplete, and...

remade it 

better this time...still not the masterpiece, but something I could at least try to fix, and then
a bit of

photoshop magic:

and it finally looks almost like something realized by some human being.
I don't think I'm going for a third try...even though  the second time I had this great idea ( sarcasm...) of scanning pencils before starting coloring, and next time I I wouldn't have to draw it all again, at least...

cartoon portait, first concept

 my very first concept for his cartoon portrait ^^ I liked it, but it was a bit too complicated: too many characters, horizontal composition, no center in this picture, all things diverting attention from what was supposed to be the main character of this cartoon. so, with some help from others ( my friend's brother) I rearranged it. but I think it was a funny idea, so I posted it ^_^ 

cartoon portrait background

here preparatory studies I  made before realizing my friend's cartoon. 
copyed by some photo and I must be grateful to his ego, for he really have many,
furthermore, he likes to take photo while having foolish facial expressions, that really made my life much more simple ^_^
