Drawing of the Week

Well I wanted to do a Comic of the week, but I think I'll make it a drawing of the week instead. That way I can do a little bit of everything: illustration, comic, painting etc.

K so for this week I pulled something out of the vault. A couple of years back I attempted to recreate a favorite painting of mine. The Fifer by Edouard Manet (my favorite Impressionist artist).

So I went ahead and added some more to it to make it more closely resemble the original, but not as good :P. So here it is, from left to right. The original, what was done back in the day, and what I finished recently....comments are welcome.

Weekly Comic #1

I wanna make a weekly comic on here, reflecting what the mood is or what my friends and I are talking since we just came off a football Sunday and the home team is's a little tribute...DA BEARS!

p.s. I might come back to a comic here and there if I feel the need to.

Here's a more in depth look at some portraits I did and recently uploaded on my Facebook Art page.
This is the beautiful Eva Mendes...need I say more :) This one came out o.k. but some of the proportions are off and not as accurate as I would like. The technique is good but needs some working as well, but in due time as they say.
This a portrait I did for my uncle (or Tio Lupe as we in the family call him), again the technique was good but the proportions are off, and more so in this one than the previous one :(

I tried to use guidelines for this one but felt that it made me work too stiff and not as loose as I usually would like to, hence the inaccuracies in the face, but as I do them more the more comfortable I will be working on portraits.

Life Drawings and a Speed Painting

So far some of my best stuff as far as life studies go, I feel like I'm getting looser as I progress in my class, getting the gestures out quicker to give myself more time to render. Also I threw in a speed painting I did of Patrick one of the stars of the Chicago BlackHawks in case you don't know the dude :) enjoy!

Mo' stuff!

Another day another week.... :) So here we are again with another update of life drawing classes, still struggling with it somewhat but I keep on "trucking" as they say. The shorter times are obviously harder but once I get into it after an hour or so and we get more time...that's when it finally comes I guess I cant complain as long as I finish strong...enjoy!

My favorite!...faces come easily to me.

Public sketches and life drawings

Another update for the week.....I 'm trying my best to keep em coming. Me and a buddy of mine decided to go sketch people in public, so we visited an IHOP and Caribou Cafe in his neighborhood. It was a little awkward at first, since this was our first time doing this, but once we got to Caribou Cafe we were comfortable enough and started to loosen up. We even received some compliments from some of the patrons who were there :)

Then these next ones are from a life drawing class I attended later in the week.....

So that's it.....hope to have more to show soon.....Hasta luego!
