Carmelo Anthony

nba trade carmelo anthony married lala sister death drawing art caricature new york sketch
Elite NBA player Carmelo Anthony. He has one of the smoothest jumpers in the game right now. A lot of trade talk evolving around him so we will see. More importantly he just lost his sister. The grieving process is a difficult one for us all and I pray that God comforts him as he goes through his. I can't imagine what I'd do if I lost my sister. Deepest thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.


Well I didn't like my first sketch of Melo at all. So I decided to tweak things a bit to give me a stronger likeness. As an artist there are gonna be times where you just don't get it right. This was one of them. Below you'll see a stronger sketch of Melo. Here's a list of improvements I made:
  • Headband wasn't big enough (too much of his forehead was showing)
  • Are under his chin and to his neck was too thin. Made it look like he was in highschool. I added more "fat" to this area
  • I tilted his smile up more towards the right side of his face
  • I also enlarged his nose and tilted it upwards to the right

Don Cheadle

Don Cheadle Actor Movie Art caricature drawing color sketch model naked brooklyn topless
Caricature of a one of my favorite movie actors. Very rarely does he appear in a film that is not worth watching.

Below is my first attempt at a vector style caricature. Something I've always wanted to experiment with. From the looks of it I will be exploring this style a bit more in the near future.

Martin (Marty Mar) Lawrence

Caricature of my favorite actor/comedian Martin Lawrence. I'm wondering what took me so long to draw him. I can't count how many times I've watched his movies and DVDs of his shows. It never gets old or dull! Of course my preference is the young, skinny Martin instead of the heavier, older Martin. Only because he was more animated and care free with his comedy back then. Whereas now he's been through some life circumstances that have matured him and his style a bit. It's all good, I understand the process and respect it. One day maybe I'll actually get to meet this brotha! To catch this expression I had to pause the DVD I was watching. I must admit even I laugh every time I look at this picture...LOL.

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. " -Philippians 2:3-4

Gilbert Arenas to Orlando Magic!

NBA Trade Gun Charge Art Caricature Drawing Sketch Breaking Agent Zero
Well it's been all over sports news today. Shooting guard Gilbert Arenas gets traded to the Orlando Magic (as well as some other pieces). Orlando looks like they understand how loaded the Celtics, Heat, Spurs and Lakers are. VERRRRY interesting to see how Arenas fits into Orlando's system. I'm hoping he can bounce back like Michael Vick did. New team, new focus, new attitude, new Agent right? Well lets hope so for all parties involved.

"For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless. LORD Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you." -Psalms 84: 11-12

Derrick "DRose" Rose

NBA Player Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose Sketch Drawing Caricature Art Twitter
Sketch of NBA Chicago Bulls PG Derrick Rose. I've always been a fan of Derrick Rose all the way back to his Memphis days. However, it isn't until recently that I have become a believer that he is definitely one of the best PG in the game right now. Ever since he added a jumper to his arsenal his game took a quantum leap. I watched him last night make big plays and make the biggest shot of the game against the LA Lakers. The Bulls are definitely gonna be an East Coast problem this year. Not to mention this cat is as humble as they come. How could you not be a fan?!

to be esteemed is better than silver or gold." - Proverbs 22:1

Deron "DWill" Williams

NBA Player Deron Williams Sketch Art DrawingDrawing of arguably the NBA's best PG in the game right now. I have been on the fence for a couple years now between him and Chris "CP3" Paul, but I think this year I have made the decision that this guy is just too good. I enjoy watching the Utah Jazz this year like never before. Hopefully they can give the Lakers more of a Westcoast run for their money than they did last year in the playoffs.

or be envious of those who do wrong;

like green plants they will soon die away." - Psalms 37:1-2
