Jorge's Portrait

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.
