This was originally drawn in September 28, 2018. I also painted it beforehand on October 1st, 2018 (seen here, quite embarrassing looking at it now).
I didn’t quite like the way I painted it the last time. So on April 29, 2019 after practicing with color and painting I decided to give it another try. At that point I stumbled upon the works of Takato Yamamoto. I fell in love with his work and use of simple colors to create amazing pieces. That’s when I decided to try and paint Booette in a simple color scheme with a minimal amount of colors. Although the styles are no where near the same and I was still learning about how colors interact with each other, I really liked the way it turned out. I wanted to add more color to it, but I stopped my self as best I could. Now that I feel more confident with color I wonder how it would turn out?
Hasta la proxima,
I tried doing another piece using photographs as the “paint”. My brother actually suggested I made one with Gengar when he showed me that photo I mentioned before (when I made Lynn Minmey). Also here is the artist and the picture I mentioned name is kotetsu_of (link will take you to the artists instagram).
I’ve always been a fan of this Pokemon and it’s previous evolutions.
With that said here is the finished piece:

Hasta la proxima,
Modern Warfare 2 was the game that first introduced me to the new generation of first person shooter games (the first would probably be 007 Golden Eye). I really enjoyed the both the story and the gameplay, not to mention all the memorable characters especifically Ghost. I don’t know, there is just something about him tha makes him so cool and a favourite among alot of fans. I don’t know what it is about him that makes him this way. Maybe it’s just his mask, or maybe it’s his cool english accent, heck it could just be because he would have our backs throughout most of the game. Although I believe it has alot to do with the scene where we both fight our way through hordes of enemies only to be killed and burned together (kind of like those bloodbrothers you see in novels or movies). Whatever the reason, Ghost is cool and let’s just leave it at that.
If and when I do another drawing from Modern Warfare, I am thinking about drawing Roach so I hope you look forward to that.
For this video I recommend listening to: “Betrayal – Ghosts Fate”
Hope you enjoy it,
