Berto Gonzales

My second take on Berto Gonzales a great NCN Artist

Da Gurl From Hewlett on the N32 Bus

I sometimes feel sorry for people, and can only imagine what it must be like to have a total stranger staring at them, pencil ad sketch pad in hand with a slightly moronic smile on their face. This gurl was giving me a great frontal view, then when she spotted me, gave me her profile, and started pouting which was even better. Finally she rolled her eyes in her head and changed seats.... but not before I got her!

Al Lopez again!

I did this revised pencil sketch of Al Lopez ad then decided to do some experimenting with digital painting which is all the "rage" on the NCN forum these days. The digital is on the left the pencil on the right.

Al Lopex, whose site you can visit by clicking his name on the right side of this page, draws THE most gorgeous woman caricatures, and seems to have a knack for getting beautiful women to pose for him. I'll never forget at a convention in Vegas where we all the NCN artists were in the large convention room drawing each other.... I looked up from my paper and there was Al, the only guy in the room who has this tall, leggy, drop dead gorgeous showgirl posing for one of his caricatures. Must be great to be Latin!
