さくらまやの大漁まつり! Maya Sakura's Tairyou Matsuri

This studio work is a drawing of the very young Enka singer Maya Sakura. Enka music is a popular form of Japanese style singing. Right now her most famous song is "Tairyou Matsuri" which is about the celebration after the fishermen have a really big catch. I did the drawings in pen and ink then added the colors digitally using Photoshop Essentials. I made the back ground with vector graphics using the program PaintShopPro and then imported it into Photoshop for the finished product.

Here are some pictures of the little girl....
If you want to see her in action, check out the following link to see her singing her famous song...

Pablo Picasso

This is a drawing I made of the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. I first I made an ink drawing which I then scanned and colored using Photoshop.
I was studying his works for inspiration. I liked his cubist style and textures he created with his paintings...
Due to the medium I was using I didn't really capture the painterly quality that I admire in his works. I was also looking at the works of Andy Warhol at the time and I feel like I was more influenced by his coloring...
