    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
