Ah yes the end of another year, and new and better year to come! Happy New year to everyone! whether it is 2010 already or not where you are from, I hope you guys have a blast and wish a prosperous and joyful one to you and your love ones.
And to that a post by moi! I done did up the thunder god Thor. I have been into drawing marvel super heroes lately. I guess because I have always dreamed of being a comic penciller. Perhaps one day.....ahhhhh. anyhoo, here it is! more posting in the coming week. so come on back to the ville when you can folks! be safe and remember......
how is everyone doing? hope the weekend was good to all of you :)
so here's another post of a random thing idea that turned into this. ever had one of those? anywhoo, i had fun doing this poor schmuck up. The "hotness" is inspired by the host of the travel channel's man vs. food adam richman. boy is always taking a heat challenge that must be killer on his insides! HA!
Greatest time at the expo, let me tell ya. I met a lot of my heroes there and got a lot of good advise and pointers! thank you goes out to Jose Lopez and Sean "cheeks" Galloway for the words of support and encouragement. attended some awesome panels and demos. if you didn't go this year, go next. great success for CTN. it was even cool recognizing other bloggers out there. i was like oh is that so and so? lol but yeah i'm gonna work harder than before to bring my work up to the next level.
so i'm gearing up for the CTN Expo this weekend, to be inspired, dissected and prodded..yes prodded. I will bring my portfolio and hopefully get something out of it. so excited :) anywhoo, i'm sick as a dog here and been baring the pain to move forward and do some art. this time around i did a piece of Captain America. I felt like going to my roots and do some comic stuff.
Is anybody going to the Expo? It'll be good times i say!
how's everyone doing? well i myself just got back from a awesome awesome trip to yosemite national park. we visited everything from mariposa grove where the giant sequoias are all the way up to glacier point to see half dome. let me tell ya when you take a trail all the way up on top of a mountain...you really put life into perspective. i'll try and upload a few pictures here and there when i post.
which comes to my next thing......NEW SKETCHYS!!!!! clap clap clap!!! i did these suckers in my room when we were rained in one day. all were halloween themed or just spooky ooky horror stuff which i personally love drawing :) so...to that note....ON TO THE SKETCHYS!!
how is everyone doing? well here's a little painting sketch of a fuzzy mook type thingy. Did two versions one with lighting study and one with none. just wanted to post them both.
anywhoo, i will be going on the analog side and do some drawings..which i think i do best...and maybe tackle painting over them in photoshop...which i can't do really well yet. so, any critiques, comments,...heck even concerns, spit it out to me and i will be all ears. :)
how is everyone doing? first off i would like to thank the people out there who decided to follow my little ole blog and checks out my stuff from time to time. it means a lot to me. just want to say thank you :)
so here's an update finally. still been on my quest with the digital paint. this particular one was a value study. i'm trying to keep in mind to keep it at least three values. i'm not sure i did it here heh.
anywhoo, went to the little art show at Disney Animation studio yesterday evening, where lorelay bove had some painting she had done while on vacation. very nice stuff by a very nice young woman. actually saw glen keane there and was geeking out like a fanboy lol.
after the show my brother and i decided to wing it and go to melrose ave to see what was going on over there. saw jay leno interviewing infront of a bar/restaurant called the village idiot, where he was interviewing random people on the street. very cool indeed. after flipping out watching jay we headed across the street to the vinyl toy store munkey king to see what was going on there...low and behold there was a launch party happening there for the artist dave pressler. good vibe, good music and good artwork. ya can't get any better than that eh.
oh wait, then i got news by email from victoria ying that i have won a raffle from her blog and that i get to choose two outta three prints of a series of retro paintings! so yes life is good :)
how's everyone doin? yes an update, and today i'm posting a painting that i've been doing for a while now..yes yes..my ongoing learning process of painting on photoshop. i call this "ROBOFFITI" hope you enjoy..back to painting, and more updates! promise :)
how's everyone doing...here's some sketches i did for the other blog sketch themes. this month was pirates, so here's my take. i've been painting some stuff too..but i'm still working on them. anywhoo hope everyone is well
how's everyone doing? sorry for not posting for awhile...here's a couple of sketches of german type peoples in my moleskine booky. anywhoo, i'm working on more stuff over here, so hopefully more current posting. oh and i joined a sketchblog called sketch themes headed by my new pal Trent Correy. check out the blogs..really cool stuff. anywhoo, here's the stuff
finally showing something with some substance. here's a character lineup i did, that was initially for the project i'm sharing with my two friends ivan and bobby. I added some guy characters to the mix to have a balance and i think overall i'm pretty please on how this turned out...finally. so yeah hoorah for me and all that good ish. more to come guv'nas
haven't been updating lately on my blogs, my apologies. i've been working on a project with my pals ivan and bobby. i may show some stuff soon. i also have been doing some personal stuff that i will show sure enough. i hope everyone is doing well

oh and this is a painting i did on my ipod touch. it's a cool app called brushes. it's a very cool app and you could do little quick paintings on the go. i highly recommend it!
So I'm waiting for this book to come out next week and i wanted to get some info on it, and found this guy who does reviews for art books. Since he lives in Singapore he got a copy early...grrrr. anywhoo, he gives his two pesos about the book and took some video of him flipping through it. it looks good and i can't wait to get my mittens on that sucker. Here's the link to his blog BLARG!
Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful women out there! I Hope you guys made your moms smile today. anywhoo, here's a painting in photoshop i did of a psycho billy. my ode and my love for the pyscho billy culture.
here's a spontaneous painting I did that started out to just be a face, and just ended up doing a couple o pieces. one is for my love of graffiti, and the other is the same character painting but him holding a radio, on also known as a "ghetto blaster"
well it's been a tough week for my family and myself. I don't really want to get into details. but let's just say it's been tough. anywhoo, i thought i'd post something i've been working on. initially it was gonna be a self portrait among other portraits I'm going to do of the people i know. But yeah, it just led to this. heh
here's a little sketch i did of a character when i was staring at my drawing pad today. i thought it looked funny and it'd be cool to share. sorry for the image, i had to scan two parts being that my scanner is hella small. hope you likes! more art to come i'm working on some stuff right now
what?! another post! yes yes. this one is another random picture of a surfer...one of the drawings where i wanted more emotion from the character. this was a drawing that i was just going with the flow with. hope you likes!
here are some more randomness. first one is a sketch i did of a old man that i saw at the park. i've been walking lately and enjoying nature and always come across some elderly chaps flying R.C airplanes. it made me smile to see these pleasant old men reliving their childhood. so i drew one of them. first run of many.
so i've been inspired by the great movie with awesome catch phrases, nacho libre. i love the whole wild costumes and colorful decoration of mexican wrestling. these particular sketches that i did does not reflect as such lol. next time i will. hope you likes
so here's somemore stuff outta the good old sketchbook. i place many of them together in photoshop to cut the uploading time. but yeah if you notice the one with the butchers. i was gonna develop the characters from the old nursery rhyme of the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker" somemore stuff on the way
