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! 🙂


Bachelor Party Card Game

Sorry for not posting anything in a while. I had to keep the project I’ve been working on for the past couple months a secret. I think it’s close enough to August 11th (bachelor party date). The friend of 10+ years I made this for loves video games, card games and board games to the max. He has a lot of the consoles and many many games and has basically become an avid collector. The one game he has yet to obtain is the one I created. LETS PLAY!

Let's Play Card Game

10 characters were made: Mario, Spyro, Kirby, Splatoon, Dig Dug, Pikachu, Cactuar, Bomberman, Donkey Kong and Link. The aim was to make a variety using different games. Ones I know he enjoys. I used construction paper, recycled paper, glue, color pencil and ink to create each piece. All of which were referenced from a photo on my phone. Lets play shall we!?

Thanks for stopping by :). I hope this game makes sense and isn’t too boring. Tell me what you think?

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.
