Aztec Warrior portfolio piece

What up!

So awhile back I was working on a character that was a sort of homage to my Mexican heritage.

first 2 posts:;postID=4165121269973109140;postID=4543085605260905629

I since have worked on this character for awhile, working on a portfolio piece for my eventual new site.

Im not sure about what name to give (yet) but I wanted to hammer out an illustration, a sort of splash page of the character entirely in an action here's the black and white version of the piece.

I might give it some time before I move onto colors, maybe make adjustments here and there...but this is what she looks like for now, hope you guys like it.


*update 5/11/12*

This is a color rough for this particular step is to refine the light and dark values before I 100% settle on this.

Caricature Practice cont.

*Update* Here are my color samples since my last post. It's been a minute since I colored caricatures using wood-less color pencils but these came out pretty good all-in-all. I picked out the three best ones from the bunch and decided to color only those. With the work I put into all the recent caricature stuff, I feel Im getting a better hold of it and can use it as another skill set. Maybe digital coloring next? Well see...hope you dig it!

Here are some familiar faces (well hopefully familiar :D )...long story short, these are practice drawings for a job as a caricature artist at Navy Pier. Took some time to do, but Im definitely getting the hang of it...after these are the final samples which will (...again HOPEFULLY) go on the booth as my samples....enjoy yall!
