Have you ever wanted to make your own amigurumi? Now you can! Learn how to design and create your own crocheted characters with this online course by Marcelo Javier Cortés, or as he’s known on social media, Príncipe del.
This was a commission for a digital art portrait for my younger brother Jorge. He wanted a portrait of himself that expresses his personality. The idea came to him because I had made a self-portrait with my style a few weeks ago for social media use and he loved it.
My younger brother wanted a portrait with my style, I love comic books, pop art and cross-hatching shadowing, so then I mixed all this on one art piece. I always spend time trying to give personality to my drawings and this one was no exception.
I started the sketch as always with pencil and paper, then for the inking and coloring process, I drew it on Adobe Photoshop with a Wacom Intous Pro Tablet. I used a variety of personal brushes for the inking, the coloring and the shadowing.
A lot of people wanted me to draw them portraits about them, their family and friends, and even their pets after I shared this project. It was a pretty fun project to do and it had a lot of response on social media.
