Salvador Dali

Here's a studio work I did of world famous Spanish artist Salvador Dali.

I drew from this very famous picture of him. It was nice to work from since it was in black and white, and had strong values. Also, I got to improvise the colors as I liked.I incorporated some elements from his paintings to add to the surreal feeling of his personality.

Happy Halloween!!

One of my favorite holidays is rapidly approaching. Halloween! I especially like this time of year because I get to draw bats, jack-o-lanterns, witches, black cats, skeletons, vampires, ghosts, spiders and all other creepy crawly things. It's even more fun when you can do it with your favorite sea creature!

Contest drawing

This is my most recent contest drawing of Nicolas Cage. I was working with the colored markers again and using artstix and colored pencils. I used a computer to generate the background. The sketching stage could have used a little more work. After the first several sketches I did, I kind of had something I liked but after the finished product was done I could see areas that I would have liked to go back to and change.
