My nephew, Juan Diego, is 4 years old and LOVES to draw. He has an obsession with super-heroes and cartoons. A few days ago my brother showed me his version of Robin (or Tobin?) I decided to color it as a warm up exercise this morning. I think he (JD) is very good for his age, look at the details in the uniform. The proportions are not too bad at all. I hope he doesn’t loose his passion and keep drawing. I will encourage him a lot.
I met Bobby Chiu around 4 months ago (July 2008). He not only is an amazing artist, but also a very nice person willing to help you and teach you how to improve your art. This week he surprised me with a small (but very important for me) note about my art, my improvement and my hard work. You probable came from Bobby’s blog, but if don't, you can check it on the link below. Just don’t forget to come back. ;)
Well, she’s my mom. This has been the hardest I’ve ever done. I don’t know how many sketches I made. I tried different approaches, but I wasn’t happy with it. Finally a little help form a great artist, who showed me a little thumbnail with his thought was enough to start painting, and after a couple of tries this one came out. I’m very happy with the result.
This was the sketch that helped me a lot. Thanks man!
I’m really impressed with the improvement I have had in just a few months. I started digita painting this year. Looking at my very first post here, that was one of my fists paintings, makes me feel very good...and there is still a lot more to improve...
It is not always about painting. Sculpting has been something that I find very fascinating. And ones again thanks to the Internet, I found out the name of some materials and the procedure of sculpting, and then it is just learning from the mistakes. Here are my first little sculptures that where made especially for my friends.
This is one of my favorite Venezuelan groups “Serenata Guayanesa”. They play traditional Venezuelan music especially for kids. I grow up listen to them and I still do it. One day I’ll put some color on it.
Oscar D'León is a Venezuelan musician who became internationally famous for his Salsa Music. In Spanish, he is known as El Sonero del Mundo ("the Improviser of the World"). His most famous song is perhaps "Llorarás," which he recorded in 1975 with his group La Dimensión Latina. Wikipedia.
I had always thought that my dad was easy to caricaturize. I guess I didn’t have a good picture to use, but it was a little hard to do. In the end it came out a nice caricature (I think?) any way my dad is very happy with it. I'm posting a few pictures I used as a reference.
Aunque me da pena decirlo, me entere de Gustavo Dudamel no hace más de 6 meses, y desde entonces quede impresionado con lo que es capaz de hacer. Creo que ya he visto todos los videos que hay de él en youtube (incluyendo las entrevistas 60minutes) Siempre me enorgullece ver que un venezolano es reconocido como uno de los mejores del mundo. Su energía al dirigir me inspiro para dibujarlo, aquí esta el resultado...
Decidí empezar haciendo caricaturas de artistas Venezolanos (sobre todo de músicos) y quien mejor para empezar que con el Maestro Simón Díaz. Sin duda alguna uno de los músicos más importantes de Venezuela y Latinoamérica. Así lo demuestran sus más de 200 composiciones y sus más de 70 discos. Y quien no conoce a Simón Díaz y su Caballo Viejo?... Para mí, el músico más importante de Venezuela y uno de mis favoritos.
Bueno este es mi primer post. En estos últimos meses he aprendido y mejorado mucho mi “arte” gracias a los blogs de otros artistas, así que decidí crear el mio con la idea de compartir lo que hago, ayudar de alguna manera y por supuesto para seguir aprendiendo. Espero que disfruten de mis dibujos tanto como yo disfruto haciéndolos.

Hello! Well, here I am with my first post. During the last months, I’ve learned and improved my “art” a lot just by reading blogs from great artists. I decided to create my own, so I can share what I do, help others, and definitely learn and learn more.
I hope you enjoy my illustrations as much as I enjoyed doing them.
As you can notice English is not my first language; however ,feel free to write me in English, Spanish or even French.
