This is a great quote by Nisandeh Neta,"In order to become good in anything, the only talent you need is motivation." This is so true, if you put motivation and persistence in everything you do you will get great results!!! Oh, and also do a lot of it, make it a habit to do more and it will become second hand nature.
So keep at it! :)

This is my attempt to put as many heads together on one page of people as possible in a short amount of time. Always plenty of people to draw and exaggerate ideas from walking within the city. Try to come out with some fun creative shapes within the face and head when you are just sitting down waiting for a someone or when you just want to get away from your PC.
"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." Albert Einstein
Yeah! What he says! Go out there and just create with what you know. :)

Just some funny sketches. The guy on top was for fun, he was suppose to be some really distinguished fellow. The last dude on the bottom, was a memory sketch of a dude I saw coming out of the train station on my way to get some late night munchies at the 24 hour Walgreens. So I tried to draw from memory and his head shape was so unique I had to caricature it. The more I start observing the world, the more I realize there is a lot of things to draw out there if you just stop to look and observe, it all adds up. With that said, Robert Collier says it best and I quote, "Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out."
So go out there, find inspiration where you can find it, open your eyes, sometimes it can be right in front you. More you do the better you will get! Keep drawing and remember always have fun with it, its just a drawing :P

What's up everyone? I hope is all going well for everyone this week. So, I am watching the old seasons of the show Sopranos and I felt compelled to draw a gangster mafia type looking dude. A dude wearing a suit with stripes and everything :P It was fun to draw something out of the ordinary.
With that said, I thought this would fit a great quote from a wise guy, get it a wise guy...ok, that was a lame joke; but hey what can I say I have been watching wise guys whacking out other wise guys all this weekend on the Sopranos. This is a great quote, its by Francis Bacon; "a wise man will make more opportunities than he finds."

Sorry for the lack of posts, its been finally picking up here for me on preparing my short film for AM. It's always hard to juggle so many things at the same time but I believe it will be worth it at the end when it is all said and done; for I believe that every problem that presents itself gives me an opportunity to solve them and therefore earns me a step closer into achieving my dreams and goals in entering this art/animation industry. So for anyone out there that feels life is throwing you problems, remember that those obstacles are just one of those things you see when you take your eyes off your goals. In other words, keep your eyes focused on your goals!!! With that said, I will be sure to post up more this coming week :)

I first want to say a huge THANK YOU for all the great email,comments and kind words about my blog. So many amazing artist out there in blog-land that I just had to express my love for all of you! I get inspired so much by all of you in every field of art; its awesome! I decided to get something more illustrative on this blog for this week; and I also felt like it was a great opportunity to do this now because of a great contest that got me motivated to draw some sketches of women. The contest is at Alberto Ruiz's site here:
EYE CANDY FROM STRANGERS
and here is the flyer:
EYE CANDY FROM STRANGERS Flyer Be sure to apply, it open to anyone who loves enjoying drawing women.
I also wanted to end with a motivating quote, I will try to have one every time I post up on my blog from now on in the future. So here I go, I felt this one was a great motivator to not quit on your dreams or goals in life; it is a quote from Alfred De Mussel, "Man is a pupil, pain is his teacher."
