Cool down sketch of @prideofgypsies

Posting these for zeesaysrelax and their polite criticism that I painted Starfire like a “white girl”. I don’t know what to tell you. These are the light, dark and midtones I used for her skin. None of them look like a “white girl” to me and they all look golden, orange and yellow. None of them are tones I’d have picked if I was painting someone who is “white.” I also dropped photos of Starfire into photoshop and color picked from those so I’d get colors appropriate to how others have colored her. I mean come on, even the artist in the first image painted her lighter than I did. The second image is what I used for reference. 

But what do I know? I guess I need to go retake my color theory class from art school.

Okay. I mean, I took an existing image of her and color dropped in Photoshop so get colors that have been used for her skin and hair but whatever. Also, it’s a redesign so, if you don’t like it, that’s fine, but you should drawn her how you think she should look then.

I redesigned Starfire. I like her character but her outfit never seemed practical to me. For an alien, warrior, princess, it seemed off. No disrespect to the artists who’ve drawn and designed her before, I just wanted to do my take on her. 

Even if she is invulnerable, I feel that wearing armor would still make her look intimidating and bad ass. I also wanted to include a look she’d have worn as the princess of Tamaran. 

Enjoy!

Well here it is. The whole lineup of the animals in the Cri Cri song, Caminito de la escuela. I’m happy with it and glad I’ll be able to make this into a print for my mom. 

I hope you enjoy it and I can’t wait to put it together into a little book.

Hi! I’m selling my San Junipero art! 

The original pencil drawings: Each is 9 x 12, pencil on drawing paper. Each will be wrapped in plastic with a backer board and each can be signed if preferred (and it’s mentioned). I’d love for both to be bought together but if I have inquiries, I will sell separately. Each drawing is $30 a piece, plus $4 for shipping. If both are purchased together, the $4 shipping cost stays the same. 

The color prints are $10 each plus $4 for shipping. Limited amount of each of them. They are 8.5 x 11. 

To purchase, send me an email at terryblas@gmail.com 

I prefer paypal and venmo.

Inktober Day 3. Squeeky clean and ready for school! “Y hasta un tiburon!”

Inktober Day 2. Who didn’t write little love notes on their notebooks? “De cuaderno el pavo real.”

Every school needs a bad boy, right? No falta el león.

Last year Inktober almost killed me. I had an insanely large workload (when don’t I?) but I wanted to draw 31 Latinos and I ended up doing semi-realistic portraits in pencil and ink.

I told myself that if I did it this year it had to be something that would be fast and fun and something I could turn into prints or a book or something when it was complete. For a long time I have been wanting to make prints and a book of a song my mom sang to me a lot when I was little.

It’s called “Caminito de la escuela” and it’s by Cri Cri. It’s a Mexican song for children. It roughly translates to “Road to School” or “Path to School,” and it lists off animals on their way to school to start their day. I loved it as a kid, because I loved anything with animals. I’ve always wanted to draw them. There’s some fun characters in there, the three above are a mouse with glasses, a dog with an eraser in it’s mouth and a giraffe with a shawl. These are all listed with those accessories in the song, but I want to put my little spin on them, for instance, I made my giraffe a little gay boy. 

I’ll not only be drawing and inking the animal characters from the song but I’m going to color them too. I know I said I wanted to make it a bit lighter on myself but the inking won’t be as intense as last year and I’m limiting myself to three colors. Gray, pink and teal.

In the song there are only a handful of animals. Definitely not 31. So I’ve decided I’ll not only be drawing the animals from the song but the Cri Cri cricket and additional animals on their way to school that I just think would be fun. I’m trying to think about what kinds of cliques and groups are in schools and incorporate that as well.

My plan is to make a wide print of the procession from the song and hopefully a book too. Standees obviously. That goes without saying. I envision a long, wide print as a Christmas gift for my mom.

I’m excited to do this and to use it as motivation for finishing this project! Stay tuned and follow my instagram @terryblas to see the posts as well as here. And if you want to hear the song and see a little animation:

Had the opportunity to see a production of Fun Home at the Portland Center Stage. They invited artists out to sketch during the performance. I finished this piece when I got home.  The show was wonderful.
