Ever since I can remember I have been drawing just about anything. Recently I have been more focused on drawing athletes as well as portraits. I also have taken classes where we drew from live models, which helped to draw the human form in proper proportions.

I feel that my skills in drawing translate to graphic design in that I can sketch many things out first and then refine them on the computer. It also gives me great knowledge in the human figure’s proportions as well as the ability to illustrate if needed.

My favorite form of drawing would probably be portraits. I have drawn quite a few portraits over the years. One was a self portrait that was life sized and it was to be almost like yourself in another form or world. Mine was if I was a MMA fighter. Some portraits of other people include octagon girls Brittney Palmer and Arianny Celeste, Stitch, Robert Duval, “the Honey Badger” Tyrann Mathieu, Chris “the Crippler” Leben, and Urijah “the California Kid” Faber.

I have taken a couple classes that have live model drawing, which helped me with human proportions. That has led me to creating more realistic athlete drawings. Some of my examples are a couple of live model drawings, Cal Ripken Jr. in the on deck circle, Vince “From Hell” Pichell, Warren Moon, and Ryan Kerrigan.

I actually don’t mind drawing still lives. These couple of still lives included fabric and paper to show shadows and highlights, and how this can show texture of an item.

When I want to add color to my drawing, I will ocasionally create illustrations like athletes or comic superheroes. Some of my examples include Robert Griffin III, Adrian Peterson, and Iron Man.
