Alexa Ray Joel; is the daughter of Billy Joel, the Rockstar, I saw her face in a magazine and well I knew, I just had to draw her. It did take me some time to get really do a decent caricature of her; thanks to the amazing advice one can get to the forum, I was able to pull this off. :)
This one blew my mind! It's by a wonderful artist and friend Angel Contreas; he won 10th place for Caricature artist of the year at the annual ISCA convention. The likeness in this sketch is amazing! He hasn't posted this on the forum, however, that is where he drew it from. Kudos Angel, and thank you!
Here we have two more sketches from the ISCA Firing Squad. Here we have Guido Salimbeni; and yet another version of David Op de Beeck. I'm really happy with these sketches and the overall feeling they have.
Here is a recent painting that I recently finished; ahhhh... It took about a week to plan and get supplies and well complete. My initial idea was to paint the chandelier realistically but then one thing led to another and before I knew it....I tried some new techniques with this I added glitter to the paint to make the little dots/crystals sparkle...and I added some ink and fabric on the side for some reason I'm not sure why but I enjoyed the results...none the less here it is.
In the top left we have Klass Op de Beek; to the right we have Big Tom Brennan; and to the bottom we have Issac Klunk.
Here is one of Jud Livley...I really like where this one went with the whole creepy factor.
to the top is a korean, her name is Spring Lee and at the bottom is Lindsey.
This is What I did at the annual Caricature Convention in Sandusky, OH
I'm really happy with what I produced at the CON I didnt expect to do what I did. Alot of people were turned off to my style but there were some who found it different. I do agree it is a bit different, but I was trying somthing different; I hope that I can do well next year it is a real challenge to see people this way but I think it was good excercise.
Well Here it is, my very first post; I am very excited to have a place to showcase my art. The first thing I want to post is a few sketches I have been working on lately I have so much to share!!! These first few weeks expect a lot of posts from me; and then of course expect me to get lazy and forget I have a blog, however I will make a comeback and flush this thing full of stuff after I decide it's time to... Enjoy this first one its a sketch of my baby sister Nicole isn't she adorable!!!! .
