We are now in the world where everyone and every company is trying new things and trying to save money at the same time. I love doing art digitally its just that it’s very time consuming. I prefer to just draw out my artwork, ink it, and then color it with the drawing tablet in Photoshop CS6. To me its a lot faster for me because I’m just so much faster at drawing on paper than I am on a pad. Not to mention doing it completely in the Photoshop program you have to keep clicking back and fourth between brushes. Now doing digital art does have a lot of pros to doing it digital and the main benefit to it is you have unlimited freedom to mistakes.
What I mean by that is that when you make a mistake its easier to correct it because you have multiple layers in Photoshop. Which even when I’m just using it too color my art work I always use multiple layers to help keep it separated so when I go back to fix a mistake its more simple to find and fix it. You also have a lot of tools that you have direct access to when you draw digitally, like the paint brushes and if their is something you don’t like you can change it right away its never permanent. You also have the options to save your art in a lot of different formats if you choose or need to. Like jpeg, psd, etc they offer an very good selection to choose from. Also, they say its good for the environment and it saves on tries and labor as well. But its a preference my preference is drawing it out than coloring it.
But I would recommend to all artist to learn it all, because the more you know the better. There are a lot of opportunities in life for digital artist. Someone may hire yo because you know how to do it all and its cheaper to hire one person and pay them a little more than it is too hire a pencil-er, inkier, and then colorist. So learn as much as you can my friends digital art is very time consuming especially if your new to it but a lot of good stuff comes from the being a digital artist. Above is my very first drawing I did of a very beautiful female back in 2011. And up to this day I still love it I was completely new to it and my Uncle recommended trying to do digital art just to get practice which was a good thing to do. So give digital art a try we are living in the digital world now so its good to stay up to date. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!

This is a drawing I did back in 2011 right after I graduated from high school in the year of 2011. I didn’t use no reference I just drew how I was feeling and used a lot of my imagination as this is my own made up character. Her name is Wild Woman and I will also be posting a regular cartoon drawing of her. But as I’ve mentioned before in earlier post we always improve our drawings over the years and sometimes were able to come up with new ideas for our projects. Never throw away your old art work, keep and and always make a photocopy and try to store it in plastic dividers to keep the drawing in tact. Remember the lead starts to go away after a period of time so its very important to take care of your art and to have copies of your art for back up.
Also, your art can be a reminder and can be a good influence for new upcoming young artist or for anyone trying to become an artist today. Sometimes when we first start were like “man I’m never gonna as good as that artist”. But as you see it takes time and a lot of practice. As an artist I’m determined to help others in improving there art skills and offering tips on what to do to become the best artist you can be. One thing I can say and this is very true, always come up with your own style of Art, never try to copy another artist style. There are many reasons why me and other artist say that but to sum it all up you want someone to see how good of an artist you are and that’s what your trying to portray to the world.

Art has always been my passion and it has always been my hobby. And over the years I’ve gotten better and better with the help of being in art class and doing some research and watching videos on YouTube. I was very young when my mom taught us the basics of how to draw and drawing Runs in my family.
But my career started when with the help of my Uncle who is a successful Entrepreneur and business man help my create my first wordpress blog. I was so thankful because I had no idea on how to create a website and the only way I was learning was from a business class I took in school called NFTE which had us using computer skills like Microsoft PowerPoint. Which was teaching me how to make and design a webpage/Website from sctrach.
Then I learned the basics of using Adobe Photoshop. I started with with Photoshop Elements then I upgraded to the bigger software Photoshop CS6 which the software is beautiful. But I learned to use it in terms of editing photos, doing digital art work, and coloring my own comics that I inked and drew first. So below I have a small gallery showing the work I’ve done. I am working to color all my art and to keep displaying them and I’m about to keep posting some of them hear and on some of my other social media sites. I will also be updating my about me page and will be deleting my contact page and merging it with my about me page. Thank you for reading and for being a subscriber!
Frank Cho, as mentioned in the title is one of my favorite comic book artist next to Budd Root. Frank Cho is an Korean-Amercian Comic book artist and writer. He is well known known for his work his own comic series Liberty Meadows. The thing that inspires me about him is that he didn’t just get to the top and become the well known artist that we know easy. It took time and a lot of hard work for him to get to an artist that can charge about $500 or more on a piece of art at a comic con. Also, the thing that brings out a lot about him to me is that he was born and raised in Beltsville, Maryland. He went to school at Prince Georges Community College and was majoring in Nursing. As we know he is now a famous artist but from what I’ve read it was his parents that wanted him to pursue a career in being a Nurse. He is well known for his work in women and to be honest one of my favorite books by him are Apes and Babes. When it comes to Marvel The Almighty Avengers drawn by him really brought the comic book to life. I love comics that have very good art work and where I can just imagine whats going on kind of like in a movie. Below is a picture of the famous artist and of some of his comic books. This is not my work and all credit goes to Frank Cho, and google images. He is one of my biggest inspirations and my twin brother had the honor of meeting him a comic con in Baltimore. It’s hard sometimes to meet some of these artist because they have a tight schedule and as a cartoonist working for companies like Marvel and others they have deadlines they have to make. I will be making a post and a small blog on the work of a cartoonist. Below you can see some of my favorite comics from Frank Cho and any others that you’d like to know just write it in the comments of feel free to email me and let me know! Thanks for reading!
