    Mofongo's Artistic Mind Trip

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been lurking around for a while and finally, inspired by you all, decided to put together my sketchbook ... woohoo! These pieces were mostly done in pen & pencil during my lunch breaks. I would love to hear your comments and suggestions!

    Hey I just read your comment on my sketchbook and thank so much for the compliment on the coloring……
    By the way apart from the really cool cows the hell boy one at the end rocks also….
    As for the other comment about people not knowing which is 100 percent me …I would say every thing on that sketchbook is 100 percent me…..weather it be hand or digital drawing its all me ………I was talking about this with another person on this site…you give any old guy Photoshop or painter and they wont even scratch the surface of what a real artist or concept mat artist can do….same thing with a peace of paper….you know as well as I do that today digital and hand is almost the same the line each day is becoming less and less……with that being said I am in no way saying that I am good enough to be a professional concept artist so don’t take it the wrong way but if people get confused to bad for them….you know I like what I do hand and digital …and if other people get confused well what can you right…. Either way man thanks for the compliment and keep rocking

    CHEERS!

    Iceman - Thanks for the compliments! I hear ya on the hand and digital front, its all art anyway you twist it. I have a lot of respect for mat artists, I dont think they get enough recognition. Pen & Pencils are my comfort zone and Im slowly getting more into digital, so you might see some of the same here!

    Amon - Finally... Yes!! You were a big motivator.

    JARhead - Thanks man. I dont usually draw animals, but I had a decent ref

    I'll try to post as often as I can. Stay tuned...

    More pencils and charcoals - DiCaprio, baby studies and a sketch of Southford Falls, one of my favorite places to escape to the water is so soothing and hypnotic! (damn, I sound like a friggin hippie )

    I'm impressed, especially if the pictures in the first post were really done during lunch breaks.

    Nice PS sketchies... and babies -- sooo hard to really 'capture' baby faces! But it looks like you're really good at eyes, so you're well on your way

    My crit -- Off to a great start on that Leo portrait, but watch out for straight eye-lines and mouth/nose lines... seems like his right eye is a bit high and his mouth is slipping a tad to the right...

    The shading on Leo looks really nice, btw..

    Draw on!

    Wendigo - Thanks! I didnt time myself, but the trees, Angelica, Sorcerer, octupus and hand studies I did in one sitting each (as I munched, roughly 1hr). The rest I completed in two or more sittings. Hellboy has been the fastest portrait I've done thus far... ~30 min. I just grabbed a fat 6B pencil and started shading.

    Amon - I really enjoy drawing eyes. And babies.. yes, very hard to draw. Kids in general are hard because they dont follow the 8-head rule, and have an innocence (for the most part ) thats hard to portray. For Leo, it was tricky with the slight tilt of his head. I grabbed the ref from Titanic, Kate is supposed to be on his right shoulder, the top of her head touching his cheek. I didnt notice the mouth being off-centered. I knew there was something a bit off. Thanks for the pointers!

    Very cool work. Good hands and a nice feel to the lines.. not too harsh, but not wishy washy either

    artofoli - Thanks for stopping by! I feel like I need to loosen up on the lines. I still see some them looking too hairy which Im trying to avoid. Gotta keep practicing...

    Here's a piece that started out as a skull, but had to make it more interesting so in came the flesh-eating goop Needs some darkening.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and DA!
    I love the shading you've done so far on DiCaprio.
    My crit: On some of your poses, the feet are quite tiny, so watch out for that. Remember that the average adult is seven feet high, I think you're drawing some of the legs (calves, feet) too small and skinny compared to the rest of the body.
    Keep up the studies and your little doodles! :3

    Hey, thanks for stopping by and dropping some CC guys!

    megadubitably - tru dat! I didnt pay much attention to the lower legs/feet in those studies, so not very good studies after all, but at least I got my "feet wet" with pose maniacs *lame, I know* Will keep this in mind for the next batch!

    sealegs - had tons of fun with that skull I wanted to keep drawing more goop, but had to refrain myself to keep it from looking too tacky. But stay tuned for more goop in the near future...

    A coupla things Ive done in the past 2 days --

    1> Charcoal recreation of an old sketch that had gotten stained. Cant remember where I got the ref.

    2> Doodles on sticky notes. This is what I do sometimes at work while on the phone troubleshooting IT issues (squeezing in drawings whenever I can) started collecting them. Background has some stuff from lunch.

    Good mix of images so far. Good to see you doing life drawing and working from references. Just keep at it and you'll improve in no time.

    Look forward to seeing your next updates.

    Sevans - Thanks man. Yea, I think I need to do more drawings from life to pick up speed and loosen my linework

    Amon - Thanks! Will do some more charcoal stuff, love the darks. And yes, I strongly support doodlers at work, especially through those loooong boring meetings. Just dont get caught LOL

    Here's a piece I first did in pencil and brought it into PS to start coloring. I'll probably develop the colors further, but if anyone has any crits or suggestions, hit me up.

    Good face on the last update, the only thing I would say is that the face is looking more towards the camera, where as the skull from the ear back seems a little more side on. If you have time try selecting everything from halfway between the eye and the ear to the right of the page and use the transform tool to reduce the width, then shift it over a little to the left. hopefully this should show you what I'm talking about

    Thanks for the tip Seaport! I am such a newb with digital painting, I never wouldve thought to try this. Really liking that tool! I also touched the top of her head which was looking a bit high for the angle. Here are the results, plus Indians!

    Thanks Yacob, variety keeps me going, plus experimenting is always fun!

    So I finally scanned some stuff I've been working on these past few days :
    1) With all the hype behind Harry Potter, I had to draw some owls (ref used).
    2) 3) Been looking through some anatomy books, started working on skulls and upper body.
    4) More stickies
    5) Listening to Eric B inspired some graf and old skool art
    6) Was having a bad day, had to fend off some demons

    WOW your stuff is pretty cool! lots of awesome sketchys...a lot of them look like they would make cool tatoos!

    I love posemaniacs to! they are SOOO helpful for learning anatomy (and I'm saying this after only hearing about them a couple days ago... I can already tell my anatomy has improved though)

    So yeah keep it up! I would love to see some finished colored stuff from you ^_^

    Thanks Shiro! The Jamul piece in the first post was actually a tat design for a friend The skulls were a bit of a problem when he went to have it inked, but overall came out nice. Coloring is a weak point of mine, as you can probably tell I'll keep at it...
