On 18″X24″ paper drawn with color pencil, graphite pencil, ink and marker.  Setup time before color was about 1.5 hours.  Coloring and detail ranged from 2-4 hours depending on the difficulty.  All in all I’m proud my client was happy with the results. Thanks for the challenge! 🙂

Grid Method: Cowboy Sketch

It all started with some modeling practice.  Cowboy modeling practice to be exact partner.  I wanted to incorporate this image in my 5.5″X8.5″ sketchbook.  So I used grid method to piece together this puzzle.  Altered the image to better accommodate my sketchbook and added lines using Photoshop.  Aside from the eyes looking like demon eyes I think the grid method was a success.

Keeping Busy With YouTube

Lately I’ve been working nonstop on a few projects:

I changed my main website’s domain name to http://oscarzart.com instead of the long http://artistoscarzamora.com. This has allowed me to build around the name OscarzArt.

Which lead to the start of a YouTube channel:

Working with green screen, editing software and public speaking are my weaknesses by getting familiar with my weaknesses I can make them my strengths.  Drawing, Photoshop and video quality are more in my comfort zone which gives me the opportunity to keep improving and to have fun.

Feel free to let me know what you think.  I’m learning what to do by doing it, if its wrong then it’s wrong I’ll learn from the mistake and make it less wrong.  Its an experience worth trying.

AAANNNDDD…We’re Back

Welcome to a new year folks!  2018 promises so many good and bad things!  Looking forward to every moment. Woo!  Sorry for the lack of keeping in touch.  Between switching positions at work, moving, birthdays and vacations.  I still kept up with drawing:

Doodles

15 minute breaks at work, over thoughtfulness and the inability to sit still are the results of the above drawings.  Some of these were fun to think about:

Drawing on napkins, scratch paper and sometimes toilet paper were the materials used at work.  Don’t get me wrong.  I work my butt off at work, which is why I have this need to draw when I’m on my breaks. To escape. To recharge. To win.  Doing this has kept me insane, which is what I prefer.  Recently I have been getting more in depth with some drawings:

 

Staying on course.  Adding a new little fun in each piece.  Dogs that like saying “dawg”.  Horses that chew bubblegum.  Blue eyes like the sky.  Bear harness for when they fall out of trees.

Thanks for your patience with my long break.  2018 here we come! 😀
