Hey kids, Sketches!

Here's some recent sketches! These are also posted in the Dos Illustros sketchblog. As always click on the images for a bigger version:

One of my favorite Marvel characters: classic X-men Nightcrawler quick sketch for Sketch Dailies, all digital (Adobe Ps
, Kyle T. Webster brushes, Wacom Cintiq, Adobe Ai for type- Palooka from Blambot). He was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum, debuting on a new mutant team with Sunfire, Banshee, Storm, Colossus, Thunderbird, and Wolverine on "Giant-Size X-men #1":

Watched "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" movie a week back, solid action and comic movie! Here's a classic Kirby "coming-atcha!" style Cap, done with a Palomino Blackwing on the Moleskine. Cap was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby before Marvel even happened:

BTW, I also finished reading "Marvel Comics: The Untold Story" by Sean Howe. Lots of interesting backstory and drama from the Stan and Jack days until now! Stan is great but IMHO Long Live The King.

I watched a lot of wrestling as a kid both in PR and the US! My favorites were Carlitos Colon, Los Super Medicos, Los Invaders, Abdullah the Butcher, and even had a namesake in Hugo Savinovich. In the US, the Ultimate Warrior was one of the most exciting characters to watch because he was so colorful yet such a mystery, Rest In Peace. Done in Palomino Blackwing on Moleskine:

Struggled in the quick drawings of the session but got a few good ones by the end. These are all 20 min. poses at Crealdé School of Art. Bruynzeel black color pencil on Aquabee Super Deluxe 808 Sketch Book 9"x12".

Warning: if you're offended by artistic nudity, I'd  suggest you not go further and please check out my other work here in the non-figure drawing posts (or clothed ones) and at the Dos Illustros sketchblog instead. If you're not offended then please read on...
