Crystal Blue Eyes by JCecalaIV
Crystal Blue Eyes
Just messing around. The inspiration for this one was from an artist here on dA. I can't remember who it was by. I have to check my favorites. When I do I will update the artists name.

downhill in my opinion. I am probably going to get flamed for this but.....oh well. This site is turning into a porn site. I know I have seen other artists say this but I feel like I have to get my 2 cents in. Between the pictures that are claimed to be "Artistic Nude", people's feet and the cleavage selfie shots it is getting a little ridiculous. Don't get me wrong I am a guy and I like to look at some "T&A" but enough is enough. I come here to look at art. I even have my Mature Feature set to 'Hidden' so I don't have to see that stuff but it is still making its way in.* DISCLAIMER * Let me be clear, I am by no means talking about cosplay, actual models who hire photographers, use actual locations to shoot their pictures and make their own outfits. * I know stuff like that takes a lot of $$ and time so I do applaud you. * What gets me is I see a whole bunch of artists who work hours, countless hours on their masterpieces for it all to get shown up by a chick who takes selfies with her tits out. The moderators need to filter this SPAM out. I am starting to lose interest in this site. I am contemplating the fact that I might not renew my premium membership in a few months. It is also getting to the point that I am not putting my work up. I have been doing stuff but I am not putting it up here because it will get no views and I feel like it goes to waste.  I am not saying my art needs to get views and it's 'all that' but I just feel like....well....it is just going to sit there. I didn't mean to rant but that's how I feel. If you agree with me great, if you don't, then don't.

Take care and thanks for reading.

First Commission. Big Hearts for Tiny Feet. by JCecalaIV
First Commission. Big Hearts for Tiny Feet.
A co-worker asked me to design something for a charity event. It is called the March of Dimes Walk-A-Thon and this will be going on t-shirts for a specific group of people. This design totally took me out of my element so to speak. I have never ever done lettering. Hopefully they like it. I used HB and 2B .5 mechanical. Thanks for checking it out. I am going to ink this up soon BTW.

Hello artists @ dA. My name is Joe and I am 39 years old. I recently started to draw again. I cannot believe I let all these years pass and I never continued to draw. Growing up I was a big fan of comic books and dabbling into a little graffiti. It is now 21 years later and I realized I missed it. So here I am slowly getting back into the swing of things to show off my skillz (not much but currently working on it).

Here are some of the things I am into and some things about me.
I am a huge fan of the X-Men, specifically Wolverine. He is the ultimate badass in the Marvel Universe. I am also a fan of Marvel comics in general. I like DC comics too but the only one I follow is Batman. The other genre of stuff I am into is Sci-Fi. In other words anything STAR WARS!!! LOL!! The Star Wars franchise is probably the best sci-fi franchise ever created. I am not knocking on "Trekies" but Star Wars is better.
I am also an avid (not as avid as I would like to be) gamer. My console of choice is a PS3. My PSN ID is the same: JCee911. I play a lot of Military FPS type games, IE: Call of Duty series, Medal of Honor. The other games I like to play are RPG games, Final Fanatasy and such. So if you are on the PSN network look me up, we can play a game or two.
The most important thing of all is I am the husband to a beautiful wife and I am the father of 3 beautiful girls. One of them actually loves to draw. If there is anything she inherited from her dad it would be art. If she sticks with this skill she will go far. Here is to hoping she does.


Here are the "tools of the trade" that I use.

Standard Graphite Pencils 9H-7B Faber Castell
Pentel Mechanical Graphite Pencils B, HB, 2B (looking for more grades)
Colored Pencils - Prismacolor Premier, Watercolor and Verithin
Famer Castell PITT Artists Ink Pens and Prismacolor Ink Pens (black 00.5, 0.1, 0.3, 0.5 0.8, 2.0mm)
Copic Neutral Sketch Markers N0, N2, N4, N6, N8
Tortillians/Stumps/Chamois for blending
Kneaded eraser
Dustless eraser (have quite a few of these)
Staedler Stick eraser/Faber Castell pencil eraser
Canson Blackbook (8.5x11, 5.5x8.5)
Canson Bristol board (9x12 dual surface)
Canson sketchbook 9x12
Strathmore sketch and drawing book (9x12)
Strathmore Bristol (11x14)

Well thanks for reading and looking forward to seeing everyones work here on dA.
