Before & After

I thought it would be great to post some of my really old drawings so you'd be able to see the process of what I've been through over the last year as an artist, and hopfully it will help you in one way or another. I can see how much I improved since I started my studies at The Animation Academy, that was about a year ago on last September. The Animation Academy was the first school that I attended, it was a dream of mine for years, I used to dream every night about going to that school and studying with the most amazing artists over there for years and it finally came true last year and I'm so so very much happy about it.

Ok, so the drawing on the left is the very first drawing that I did at The Animation Academy about a year ago, and the one on the right is recent. I've learned and grew as an artist so much ever since I started over at The Academy thanks to Charles Zembillas the main instructor and founder of the school.

The drawing on the left I did about 2-3 years ago, I really didn't have any idea what I was doing lol. The one on the right is recent.

I'd like to thank The Animation Academy and Charles Zembillas for all the help. Thank you for the amazing job that you do with your students!

A lot of the top artists in the industry used to take classes at The Animation Academy. Artists such as:

Steve Silver
John Nevarez
Jose Lopez
Chris Ayers
Andre Medina
Chance Raspberry

And the list goes on and on and on, there are so many more.

Be sure to check out the Academy's website:

Well hope you enjoyed this post. I'll upload some new stuff soon. AG


  1. It's always fun to see how an artist grows through the years and you sure have. As they say we can't get better as artist if we don't DRAW, DRAW, DRAW! Thanks for sharing these progression drawings.

  2. Yeah, it's a lot of fun to see where you started and where you're at with you drawings today. And I totally agree with you, there's no other way, we have to DRAW, DRAW, DRAW, all day and night, we have to make it our obsession if we want to get better (And I really mean it lol) That's at least how it works with me. I draw every day/night for at least 3-8 hours, even though I work full time from the early morning till night I still find the time to draw... lol I just barely sleep at nights, sometimes I don't get any sleep at all just so I can practice, learn, get better, and grow as an artist. That's at least how it works with me lol

    Thanks Pablo for checking on my blog every once in a while, I really really really appreciate it, it's very nice of you


  3. I'm really glad that you're smart enough to see your progress for yourself and publish it also
    I'm really proud at you!

    keep on !
