before i go...

It's time for Mr.Sorrentino to take a break. I'll be on a much needed short vacation, so I'll be away from the blog for a SHORT period of time. Before I leave I'd like to share with you this little fella! Isn't he cute? Don't you wish you can pinch his cheeks? More of him to come later, more Humberto too and perhaps a sneak peek into the world of the Surfing Samurai...keep your eyes peeled!

Rough Draft

(I added a change in tone to the archway of the bridge, thank you Steve for your observation ;) )
Heres a color rough of a Humberto piece I'm doing in watercolor. Although this isn't a very complete or a full finished illustration, it was still fun. Also this was good photoshop practice for me and I thought it was time to take my concepts and put them in more of an environment. SO heres the first part of the process, I thought I would get opinions first as well, about composition, color, and tone. Let me know what you think!

new! just for fun, sort of

Here's a character study/sketch of a project I'm working on with a friend.
It actually involves surfing and samurais believe it or not! Hopefully the piece isn't too warm,
the scan doesn't do it much justice! keep your eyes peeled! Please check out the new work on my sketch if you will
