They call him DR. OCTOPUS!!

  I don't remember why or how this idea popped into my head.  I was just drawing, and I though of doctor octopus having a back pack like thingy with REAL octopus tentacle coming out of his back.  Being a scientist, I put him into a yellow hazmat suit, also coinciding with his original colors of yellow and green, adding the green tint to his goggles.
  Overall I really like this picture.  I feel it's a lot of fun, i had a lot of fun drawing it, I like the colors, and most importantly it shows improvement!
  I even threw in my original pencil sketch.  Photoshop however makes better artists out of all of us.  I personally feel it's because it's an easier version of tracing paper.  I feel I could have gotten the above result, but after tracing it and tracing it and tracing it. so in instances like this im grateful it sped up the process and saved some wildlife.  On the other hand, I want to eventually be a traditionalist, learning to do al of it from start to finish on paper.

  As an aspiring artist, I'm always looking on how I can improve my stuff.  Even the pictures i may be proud of like this one.  As i looked back on it, I saw some things I could fix.  I made the adjustments and decided to post the notes about it for anyone who cares to see the things I look for to make the picture better and even discipline myself to notice them when I draw a picture the first time around.

  Enjoy Doctor Octopus!

here's a character I designed a little back, I need to fix her pelvic area, and a couple other tweaks here and there, but i tend not to revisit drawings very often and just move on to other stuff, i plan on fixing it one day, but what will proably end up happening is in a year, ill be that much better to where ill jsut redraw and most likely somewhat redesign her anyways, so whatever, until check it out!

Human Torch no. 2!

I'm going backwards in the story progression, but here's the panel preceding the last one.  enjoy.

Human Torch and Giant Chicken!

  Here's a little exersize i did with my buddy Chris Jimenez ( where we gave eachother a random person, place, and item and we had to create a scene involving the three. 
  This particular exercise was to show a sequence in three panels.  This is the third of those panels I did, but I felt this specific panel tells a good enough story standing on it's own. 
  I was given the Human Torch, a volcano, and a wishbone.  In an epic battle against a giant chicken, the human torch bursts out of the volcano ripping the wishbone right out of that punk-headed poultry.
Haha.  hope you all enjoy it!

Alice in Wonderland

This is a picture I drew for my girlfriends other niece's first birthday.  I like'd it. It's not perfect, but hey neither are YOU!

Saturday, June 01, 2013


Here's just some sketches I did this past week.  Hope y'all enjoy!  still flushing some of them out and hoping at one point that I'll perhaps make some some finals.

Tuesday, May 21, 2013


   Did this for my girlfriends niece's birthday.  I drew the original in prismacolor, then took a picture and completed it in Photoshop.  Hope y'all like it.
   I felt this piece pushed me to draw some things I've never done before... Like drawing a tiger. haha.  Overall I'm pretty pleased with it even though I see some weak points.

    Just a small intimate little picture between Link and Navi his borrowed li'l fairy.
    If the problem you have with is is the coloring, then you're right there with me, because I don't know what I'm doing.  I have no idea how to paint in or outside photoshop.  so I am totally experimenting.  Get over it. 
    Overall I like it, but there are some things I see as I look at it right now that don't sit right with me, but I can't quite put my finger on it.  Well, nevertheless I hope you all enjoy it!

The Man In the Iron Mask

Here's the piece I did for my brother's (Mike Collins) collaborative art book.  ( and/or

My piece was The Man In the Iron Mask.  Here's my picture!  you can see I decided to go with something different than the initial layout.  I hope it worked.

Going counter-clockwise, starting with the man in the iron mask (Philippe);  D'artagnan, Porthos, Aramis, Athos, then to the otherside, Athos' son Raoul, his fiance La Valliere, then a sword fight by D'artagnan, and the King Louis XIV.

Hope y'all enjoy!

More Zombies!

This is a design I did for a friend of mine's nephew.  She wanted to make a shirt for him, and since he loves zombies, she asked me to do this.  Her nephew loves zombies so much to where he frequently asks for "More zombies!"  Hence why the design has the text. 
All in all, I'm pretty happy with it.  it took me about three passes to make it work.  In fact I even posted the preliminary sketch below.  Yes, you saw it, I swapped it.  mainly to draw it right.  i.e.  put the finish lines on top of the mirrored image in order to insure I was drawing it right. Haha.  Well I hope you all enjoy it.  Especially to whom it is for.
I had a lot of fun drawing it, although it took me a while to find a good altogether design, nevertheless, it was a fun experience.

Memory Sketch!

So just yesterday while I was on a date, we were headed to the Cold Stone in the Burbank Town Center and there was this guy, just singing away, bobbing his head up and down, and just performing with his microphone.  The girl I was with and I just got the biggest kick out of it.  He was just in to it!  Haha.
Later as we were leaving, he had switched spots (by like 20 feet, and then to our surprise now he was not only still singing at the top of his lungs, but straight up had a Guitar Hero guitar and was pretending to play it as he held the mike and sang!!  HAHAHAHA.  It was sooo funny.
It was hilarious.  So, needless to say it was an absolute must to memory sketch him.  I feel I caught the energy of him, although I don't think it exactly looks like him in the face.  but eh, that's why I'm doing these things to get better.  Hope you guys enjoy this story as much as I did to experience it.

Sketchbook Pages!

so, because I have no finished picture and I do not want to pay my friend a dollar I have decided to post some sketches from my sketchbook, it is sad to say that out of my whole sketchbook, i only like three pages thus far...  haha! well anyway here are some sketches.  you all should feel lucky.  to make up for not having a finished picture I am posting  count 'em THREE pics!  Most of them are cafe sketches, most however are me just trying to push myself beyond my comfort zone with poses and such. 
so needless to say, my sketchbook is a place of learning for me, so forgive me if the drawings are pretty bad. haha.

Friday, March 15, 2013


Here's one I did a couple weeks ago for one of my sisters-in law  because she told me I couldn't and I would butcher it.  looks like she was right hahahahaha!

Here's Squirtle.  I'm trying to go in order, but I have this foresight that all the third evolutions, at least to start, are gonna give me problems to draw...  and i busted out a sweet sketch last night of Squirtle and thought I'd finish it up.

Here is Ivysaur!  the second in this evolution and second overall.  Gave him a glass eye, and antoher hidden token.  can you find it?

Tuesday, February 12, 2013


So,  before I do charizard, I decided to go back and fit in the three before, then i can continue sequentially.  So here is Bulbasaur.

In these pictures I am gonna try and 'customize' or make each pokemon unique.  i.e. the bandana on the previous two, and if you notice teh skull shape patch right above his forearm. haha :) Hope you all enjoy this one too!

p.s.  if anyone wants prints of ones I've drawn or if you would like to commission me for the same pokemon in a different pose or what not contact me by my email, and ill send you the details. (and you don't have t wait for me to drawn it already once.)

Charmander and Charmeleon!

I've taken it upon myself to start drawing all 150 pokemon, although I didn't start with the first three, here are my first 2, Charmander and Charmeleon!  I've personalized them a little, the main reason is Charmeleon is one of my favorite pokemon.  I have my 'Elite 6"  and he is one of them, and since all my pokemon are named after my favorite cartoon characters and such, he is 'Ridley' after Samus' foe in the Metroid series.

  And since naturally my Charmeleon is one bad mojo, not only does his tail burn blue almost always, but has some sick battle scars and a sweet checkered bandana.  (The reason his tail burns blue is because of a pokedex entry that says when he basically feels the thrill and excitement of battle his tail burns blue.)

Hope you all enjoy
