Illustration for Black Enterprise Magazine 2008 for and article about the election




Here is an older illustration I did back in 08, I have been very busy with current projects which I can't show yet, but will definitely be posting older pieces and works from my sketch book (when i get to sketch) as much as possible. Also, these are the photos from which I used for reference as I did the drawing and painting. Thanks! and stay tuned in!!

Great stuff.

To AnimeMuffin: I use oils mostly, how I use them is basically transparent thin layers of paint for the shadows, and opaque paint for the areas where light is hitting. Thats the simplest way to put it, but i go more in depth in previous blogs. You can go to the previous painting of my post titled "HOMER B!!!" and get a little bit more in depth about it. Experiment and learn as you go!! Thanks for posting, be sure to follow! Thanks Nuno
