Luis Guzman



I haven't painted much in awhile (which really sucks...probably need to take some time management courses or win the @#$% lottery) so in keeping with the Danny Trejo sketch I thought I would give another terrific character actor a shot...great face for caricature Mr. Guzman has!!!

Great all the way through, each of the stages look finished.
I wish I could master photoshop painting as you did :)

May I post your pieces on a russian portrait community, giving you credit of course? I just want to introduce some cool stuff to them.
Thanks.

Vincenzo said...

Thanks Olga!!!

I'm certainly no master of digital painting but I can definitely say that your skills with traditional medium should make Photoshop (or Painter) a breeze for you!!!

...and please feel free to post any of my stuff, in fact I would love to see the work of others on the site or forum...so if you get a chance send me a link :)

I recently purchased a couple of Repin State Academic Institute drawing books from the Gallery Nucleus site that are incredible...Russian artists rule!!!

Hi Vince,
I posted your work there today, but it wouldn't help you, if I sent a link, it is a "classmates" website and you would be required to sign with a password....
Here is a link that need no signing in:

one more :

I hope you find some thing you like there.

Wishing you the best always!!!
