This is the first image after painting traditionally for my show. Tough changing medias. I will be working on some new material for a portfolio. This image is partly from a challenge on FB group. Also back to learning mode over on Conceptart.org, Pencilkings.com and some twitchtv.com with Bobby Chiu. So let’s see what I come up with. Been checking out some of work from Todd Lockwood, Michael Whelan, Frank Frazetta. Love their work.

I have solo show coming up soon in March of Black and White Flowers (new) images. Reason I know they are new is because I haven’t painted them yet. I will probably finish up with this challenge this week. But please check out the other artist at the other 2 challenges that are going on
Day 20 in the Challenge. Day Late and a dollar short I finally over the whatever I had… so I wanted to do something for Dr. Kings Birthday. Really quick drawing about 3 hours. Photoshop CS6 and Wacom intuos Pro
I guess this is sort of a new look for me. It’s digital but not my realistic look. You can find these images in the challenges below and on sale at Fine Art America.
1. Daily Drawing Challenge on Facebook
No snow for the next couple of days, time to run errands. This image High Hair Day is from the Facebook Challenge. My cartooning is not going very well, really hard to get motivated to do cartoons. I start thinking this is what I will be but end up creating a reality or near reality. This was done on the Wacom Intuos Pro and Photoshop CS6
I remember in high school some high hair days.
Missed a couple of days of the challenges. So this is day 12 of the challenge. I thought I would pick up a pencil and do this one. I haven’t drawn with a pencil in a while. Each type of media i use(digital, graphite, and acrylics) really is totally different to handle. Although it takes me longer to produce an image in digital I think I live digital the best
The image is of Gordie Howe OC is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. From 1946 to 1980, Howe played twenty-six seasons in the National Hockey League and six seasons in the World Hockey Association; … Wikipedia
3. Daily Drawing Challenge on Facebook
Some new friend asked me to do this portrait of Rowan Sebastian Atkinson, CBE is an English actor, comedian, and screenwriter best known for his work on the sitcoms Mr. Bean and Blackadder. Wikipedia
So thought I would share it. I think this one is half way between cartoon and reality. the coat pattern not the same as the original but it will do. This took about 5 hours to do. This will be in the 30 day challenge day 8. Digital Painting, Wacom Intuos Pro and Photoshop CS6.
Last day of reality back to comics or I should say stylized drawing tomorrow. This is a Black and White digital drawing of Miles Davis Miles Dewey Davis III was an American jazz musician, trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, together with his …=Wikipedia
This is posted on the 30 day Challenge and several other challenges.
I did add smoke from the cigarette to this version different than the Facebook version.
Also this one can be found on Fine Art America as a poster in various sizes
This is a black and white digital drawing and then value study of James Cagney for the Day 5 of 30 challenge.with Leslie http://www.lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/… Again with the realism. I did this in about 7 hours including the drawing. Photoshop CS6 and the Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. I created the background with a gradient brush.
This is a digital drawing and value painting – reproduction of an Antonio Torres Fuster (Tarragona, 1874-1945) a spanish artist, I crave doing realism. This isn’t finished usually takes me a couple of days to get all the details just wanted to get something done for the challenge http://www.lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/
original is the color one
Day four of the 30 day challenge with http://www.lesliesaeta.blogspot.com. I am always too tense with my paintings and it has carried over to digital painting. If most of you have seen my earlier work you know most of my work is realism. These cartoons hopefully will help me loosen up but it’s pretty hard.
I got a new Wacom Intuos Pro for Christmas and the feel is so much different than the Wacom bamboo. I am trying to get use to it and am using a second monitor. My line quality right now is suffering but I think this thirty day challenge should remedy that. Still using Photoshop CS6.
