Train Girl, Photoshop ILLUSTRATION

This one is a thing that happen to me all the time on my faculty times. I did this 5 days ago. It was a sketch from 2 or 3 years ago. It was a small pleasure… sleeping on the train with the hot sun by the sea on my face, going home.

I decided to finish some drawings that I started in the past. And because is anime related I thought it was nice to use colors from my beloved Studio Ghibli movies! I use the hair and cloth colors from the character Chihiro from Spirited Away! Then, yesterday I found out that  Michiyo Yasuda died. She was responsible for that same colors! I feel sad, and this is kind of my tribute to her!

RIP Michiyo Yasuda

 

 

man me, pencil on paper PORTRAIT

I decide to study my face and make a man me.

I like doing portraits, but, most of the time it’s just copying some image or photograph. It’s difficult to make life portraits of someone because the person has to be still for so long. So I decided to play with anatomy, fantasize a little and make a man me. With the help of a mirror and some photos I basically just put a stronger jaw, more eyebrows, facial hair (not too much because my hair is very thin), larger neck, more dark circles and deeper wrinkles, I transformed me into a man. I didn’t want just a teen because in reality, most of the time, boys still look kinda girly so… this is the result.
