Default Selling custom sketches! Take a look!!

My brother is a pretty good artist. He is a 16 year old sophmore in high school, and he wants to sell sketches to pay for his EMT course this summer.

He has sold a few on here before, to a few very satisfied board members. I will post some examples below.

He draws them on sketch book paper, and they measure 9 x 12. This seems to be the size people perfer.

He will add color if you'd like, he likes to limit it to logos, not full color pictures, just because the color pencil doesnt mix well with the graphite and it could smear. He will do any picture you want him to, any player. Baseball, football, basketball, hockey, pop culture, anytbody.

Basically you say what you want and he will draw it. His work is amazing. For any references, please ask hanes1111, cnewby, babyfaceposey and 66_Fiat.

We think $32 per sketch is fair for all the work that goes into them. Due to a member who did not pay after he custom ordered one (who is now banned) we have to take the payment up front. It usually only takes a couple days, depending on how many he has to do. Pics will be sent after it is done, and if there is something you dont like about it he will redo it or we can give a refund.

If you are interested, please post in the thread and PM Me. DEALS WILL BE GIVEN IF YOU ORDER MULTIPLE SKETCHES.

Thanks for the look guys.

EDIT: HERE IS THE LIST OF DRAWINGS IN ORDER THEY ARE BEING COMPLETED WITH THE ESTIMATED DATE OF COMPLETION. ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE PM ME! Thanks guys!

I am thinking about having this one done (with the auto left out):



Especially because I am moving to Dallas soon and my goal will be to get it signed. I'll PM you when I have the PP scrounged up.

FYI- As a guy who makes his bones by knowing good art when he sees it... you need to tell your bro to forget the EMT classes and pay to get into a life drawing class. At 16 he should not have this much raw talent. With the right teacher he should pick up enough pointers to take him to the next level. Great use of negative space/ decent line work/ needs to work on drawing realistic eyes(they look the same in each pic)/ dont be afraid to study cross-hatching....all in all a very solid showing. But what do I know? I just make my aliving doing this.

Thank you for the kind words! I will email him this comment! His art teacher works with him a lot, but truth be told he draws better than her haha! Any feedback is appreciated and im sure he will take your advice!

Does he charge extra for an action shot with two people in the picture? I am interested in getting the image from the 2012 Topps Paul Posluszny card which includes Big Ben. Also can you PM a price to do two pictures? Interested in this and a Dr J.

Thanks

This kid(doing the drawings) is going to be AMAZING!!!! His sketches are great now but watch him over the next couple of years if he works at it he can make some major money doing these things.

But the eyes also could be his signature. I think doing a caricature there needs to be some defining point left on what your doing. After all all art is an expression. The eyes are huge but with bit of his own flavor or emotions I think its what the artist wants.. I have a very rare Jerry Garica photo I would love to have this do to please pm your email. And to be truthful I don't want it like the photo I want his own expression in the eyes/photo on what he sees and feels. Or his first interpretation on what he takes from it.
