from ym makeup class. we were doing evening makeup.. i kinda messed up on the eye shadow cuz i should have used a darker color for the shadow than i did. but it still came out good. i chose green cuz she was wearing a green undershirt that day.

and her nose, i just like her nose. not little but it's cute. she's always got mascara on too. big lashes. and she's got her new sexy bangs in there as well.

look at it for a while.. seriously. look at it.

he reminds me of the Rock. just cuz of his body type and his hair.

anyways. a cop, i wanted to do like a modern avatar type thing but like in the present world.

he would be an earth bender, strong stiff movements, almost shotokan karate type moves.

face! hyaaa!

justt kiddin. not my lover, a good freind! man i love this girl. anyways.

quick caricature of her, i couldn't make up my mind on what to emphasize, so it came out weird.

I was in such a caricaturing mood a few weeks back. i had to draww my brother. i made him bug eyed on purpose, but nwo he lookes stoned. i added the pimples, if i had used a red color for that it ould look like the rosatia he's got on his face.
the messy facial hair is there too, along ith his signature hair style.

i think i managed to get his noses shape right. this as a quick study. basically me trying to warm my hand up.

heavy eyebrows, puffy frontal bone, weird nose ridge and bridge, (i should have made the ball of the nose bigger), the mustache, the goatee (no soul patch though). and the long hair.

mental note... i no longer have long hair, cuz i cut it for work.

i as too lazy to draw the rest.

i can't get his nose right, but colse enough I guess.

this is tommy my best amigo, practicaly my brother. he was in a rut when i drew this. so i drew him with the tablet that i gave him, af if you look closely, there's the lil' insignia for the animaters studios logo he made up. (rossy if it came out sucky tommy).

fuck skuuul.

face thingy.

iI look at this now, and I think to my self.
"This is what Frankenstein would look like if he was not a dead zombie thing."

long oblong face, with a very tall m shaped forehead. big lips, puffy frontal bones, and a strong flat nose that cast a shadow over his eyes making them seem deep. small ears were placed because i didnt want to bring any emphasis to the side of the head. his main facial features are the focus here.

eye battle!

weirdo and jose... from the fantom bombers crew.. these to fellas are loosely based on both toma-lopolis and me self. eye taring contest, to the hyper extreme. i tried messing withe lines of actions to set up a particular mood. I don't know if it workied in this case, hopefully one can tell who's got the upper hand by just reading the body language.

face faces facades.

the one on the far left was inspired by a draing by marlo meekins, (hope i got her name right) um. just studying a drawign she did to learn where she placed emphasis on the persons face for that prticular caricature. the rest (the other two) come from the top of the noggin. my noggin at least. i used a pen i think., let me check......... yep, pen.

not much of a pen study

Originally uploaded by joecastpumba
but still fun stuff. i used a penthat i got from school. rolls right of the wrist. um. i just like the face.. so sharp. really defined features. looks evil.. cuz he's got no pupils... get it? no pupils or students...cuz he's a teacher..j/k.. that's such a crap joke.. but i'm full of them.

weirdo attemps

Originally uploaded by joecastpumba

Man... Mid Terms are coming up for my Makeup Artist class. I personaly can't wait for it., although i do have to bring in a model for that day. I don't know who to ask, i'm thinking between that cute gal from work that lives near me, or the really cute girl from the class next to me, whom I think might fancy me in some sort of way. Can't wait nonetheless for monday, but on with the show. On with studying, and doing homework, and everything else.

halleluja!... for halloween, cuz I ork that day (which I don't mind at all) but i wanted to go as a hitman. but i'll save it for next year. or better yet, I'll plan to go as a bad ass cowboy (inspired by 3:10 to yuma) and kick some ass.
