Hi there, my name is Carlos "Gokulio" Abdu. I'm a young struggling illustrator trying to make it to the biz, but you heard that many times I bet. I basically ran away from deviantART, not becuase of the artists (though the amount of actual deviancy as supposed to tons of fan art is unbalanced), but the administrative staff. They are incompitent, immature and a bunch of money grubbing jerks. I'd like to find a gallery where I get noticed not much for the characters I draw, but how i draw them and not being pushed to suscribe.
I can't claim to be as good or professional as any of the people over here, nor as experienced, but I hope my time here will help me both as a person and as an artist. Hope to make some new friends and hopefully, you like my work.
Here is a scan of a part of three part series of pictures dedicated to our new president, when he was busy campaigning: Super Obama and Bidenman
And here's like this quickie thing of Street Fighter heads, just trying to test out some styles.
and lastly, here's a commision from a friend of mine who wanted a picture of his niece, cartoon style. I was aiming for something like anime meets Disney, but in the end he was looking for a full body with more realistic looking head.
looks like I'm running into some problems with a good portion of my work on this site. How do you get passed that pesky 500 KB barrier without altering your work? How do you guys post up your images?
