Black Ops 2

I thought I wanted to do something with color this weekend, and then I realized that it's already Sunday, and I just don't feel like colors anymore. But why didn't I do it on Saturday? I can answer that easily, but I have decided to draw the culprit instead :)
(Pencil on Moleskine sketchbook 5.5 x 3.5")

This is the front cover of the very popular video game from the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2. It has stolen most of my time away from my sketchbooks, even since Black Ops 1 more than 2 years ago(apart from my day job of course). Yeah yeah I know, I am such a child. ^__^

Thank you all for taking your time to visit, and for your comments on my last post. I miss my family no doubt, and hopefully me and my wife will be able to visit them this year before Fall. It'd be so much fun!!

  1. Excellent drawing - very well done. Love the values and the way the outline of the head sort of fades into the background - the backlighting. Well done.

  3. Video games are a whole lot safer for you than a lot of the other alternative hobbies out there!
