UPDATE: My name is Ramon Hurtado, I'm a 21 year old art student currently in Los Angeles. My sole aim is to work hard in order to master the craft and create paintings that express the beauty of the world around us, like my hero Mariano Fortuny.
Feel free to leave comments and critiques, all feedback is greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: My name is still Ramon Hurtado, now I'm a 19 year old art student applying for illustration (Ent Arts) at Art Center for spring 09, hoping to get some sort of scholarship. I like to think my goals are simple, I want to get really really good at drawing and painting As always, comments and critiques are greatly appreciated!
UPDATE: My name is Ramon Hurtado, I'm an 18 year old freshman in USC's animation program, but my interests have shifted toward painting and illustration. My current inspirations are: J.C. Leyendecker, Hals, Dean Cornwell, Velazquez, Repin, Sargent, Zorn, Sorolla, and Rubens.
I'm desperately trying to get better and every comment helps, so lemme have it!
Hi everybody, i havent had much luck with replies in the SB section, and i just recently started looking at this section and all the great work here, so i decided to post some of my studies for some much needed critiques.
A bit of bkgd, my name's Ramon Hurtado, i'm a high school senior right now and will be attending USC's animation and digital arts program in the fall. My goals are to become proficient in representational drawing, painting and sculpting and to ultimately become a character animator. As of now, favorite artists are Sargent, Goya, Michelangelo, Copley and Rubens.
Anyway, on to the work!
