Astrobólido #1

I finished a commissioned portrait today, I hadn't done a commissioned portrait in a really long time and I've been hesitant to accept this kind of commission, just because I'd much prefer if my own work was sold. BUT WHATEVER!


This guy wanted me to draw him specifically with a jacket and aviator glasses, I thought it was curious and I asked him if he could tell me more about this "character". Turns out it's some kind of alter ego that is very close to where he is in life right now, so that's why this piece is like a comic book panel and that's why it's called "Astrobólido #1", like the first one of a comic book series =D

Here is a progress shot and the finished result =D

This entry is about some of my most recent drawings, one finished and two that are in progress. The two that are in progress are commissions.

1. This is the most recent one, I finished this today, it's 3B pencil over paper and it's a mouth that I found in tumblr that I really liked and decided I'd draw it.

2. This is one of the commissions, it's a representation of Medusa and the future owner asked me to use Laetitia Casta as a reference, with emerald tree boas in her head and body of an anaconda. This one's 2B pencil over paper and this is the most recent progress shot.

3. This is the second commission and it's a skeleton tearing through skin. This one's also 2B over paper and this is the most recent progress shot and the anatomical chart that I'm using as guide for the head.
