This old lady was caught up on my every-day-bus-travels
This is like a portuguese idol that lives in my hometown.. if you understand portuguese go to youtube and search for " Ermelinda Portugal " you may listen what she has to say.. BEWARE CRIMINALS! =)

drew a friend of mine in some subway trip then got home and colored it in photoshop a few months ago..
I've see you around in the forums and think your work is definitely tight. I noticed the name and that you didn't have an avatar. If you need some advice on that I'd be happy to lend you a hand. Keep up the good work man! =)

Alot of cool and interesting work here. The one obvious thing I can see with your colour digital work is the overuse of black. I love pen and ink, but when your trying a more realistic image you need more true life colours. Pure blacks and whites are basically non existant in real life. Snow is never pure white, it reflects, night skys are never pure black, usually dark dark blue etc.
Using more 'colours' in your digital pieces will really add alot more life to them.

Hey man I like your work. Your life drawings are really good, you do a great job in capturing personality. I like the looseness, and fluidity of your pen drawings too. That band logo is awesome it reminds me of something you'd on a Circle Jerks flier in the 80's or a Discharge album cover, very cool! Keep up the good work, you don't see cool logos like that anymore.
i know for sure that the host is my favorite. i love your style
i used to do all those drawings of people on the train, until on day this lady came up to me with a think accent and said "you can't do that here! this is private life!" and i looked at her and said "but we're in public."
anyway, dropped in to say that your sketchbook is awesome and that i'm subbing because i want to see more!
neat stuff you have here amigo. I wanted to point out your tendency thowards flat white lighting, and you should probably look into that. Lighting with a bit of color might spice things up. Anatomicly you need practise, but that stuff comes along with practise. Your SB mission was real nice, so you improved pretty nicely on that one, but you should have read some stuff on self portraits as you were doing it.
Anyhoot, now I sounded very negative, and I did not mean to. Your stuff is quite nice, and your bus drawings are very nice Keep rocking and do more stuff
