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
Thank you very much for reading and please remember to like my Facebook Page: Gabriela Handal Arte
