Told by a co-worker that I could learn to draw. Doubted him, but tried anyhow. Watched a couple videos, read a few books, got a few supplies. 2+ years later, still putting pencil to paper.
I specialize in drawing, graphite, pencil drawing, writing.
Dabbling a bit with cartooning. Always drawn to the manga style.
Tobin Heath, US Women's National Team. I find her very photogenic and interesting to draw. The way she is half bitting her lip is what caught my attention and I thought it a good challenge to draw.
I put this together for Arsene's last home match before he left Arsenal last season. Probably my favorite drawing to-date.
Drew inspiration from a couple of other drawings I saw and thoughts to combine them into this.
This drawing is from a Mark Crilley how-to video.
Watched a video of Mark Crilley doing this drawing so I tried to emulate it. Black paper and white pencil is its own form of skill.

Progression 5 of 5. Final Drawing. Overall, satisfied with how this came out. I should have done a better job of the hard lines, especially around the skin. Also, my vision for the background didn't come out quite as planned, but I didn't want it to draw the eye more than the main focus, so I left it lighter and vague. There were a lot of Nike symbols in this piece!
Progression 4 of 5. Nearly done at this point. I liked how the light and shadow played out under her foot. The muscle tone of her legs really popped out with the dark pencil.
Progression 3 of 5. Happy with the way her shirt came out; that main wrinkle through the middle of the shirt was exceptionally challenging.
Progression 2 of 5. Spent a lot of time working the wrinkles/creases in the shirt. Tedious, for sure.
Progression 1 of 5. Found this image and felt it captured the power a beauty of the sport. Also, this piece I did with out any blending or smudging, which is my usual go-to technique.
Final drawing. Progression 5 of 5. This piece had its share of challenges, but I’m happy with how it came out.
Progression 4 of 5. The drawing really started to come together here.
Progression 3 of 5. Added more shading and detail. I noticed I got his mouth wrong and fixed it.
Progression 2 of 5. In this one I added shading to his face and neck and scetched out the hair. His ears were a bit tricky too since they are as distinctive as his eyes.
Progression 1 of 5. Happy with how this one began. Mesut is all in the eyes so those were my initial focus.
Not a terribly good piece, but I had fun drawing it. It is a take on the Spirit of '76, originally painted by Archibald Willard. I did it upon request, but I did not charge anything. I think it would have been better in color.
Just a random dude from my sketch pad.
Finished this today for my profile pic. Black paper and white pencil.
An earlier drawing from a Mark Crilley how-to. https://youtu.be/yPQV7rwUKrM This might be one of those I try again at a later date.
