Whallup!

Here's one from a few years ago...OK, a dozen years ago.

I was poking around my files and ran across a folder of old artwork. This image was drawn back in 1996, when Disney animation was still 2D and had just released Hunchback in the theaters, and Pixar's Toy Story was released on VHS.

This was drawn with graphite on ledger paper.

I love the intensity of this one. That's one big dude.

hubcap10 said...

Beatiful! But is that how you feel at work? :)

Jedulous said...

so much story here. I love the simultaneous puch/chair smash/people cowering under him. Really fantastic. This kind of single image makes me want to see a full comic from you some day, Boss.

Adam Gard said...

WOW! Love how his arm is big enough for a couple fellas to cling to...NICE!

I can almost feel that dude's fist connecting with my jaw. *rubs jaw gingerly* This is beautiful! (and even if you don't feel that way at work, I do though a lot less than at my old job.) I like the -shapes-. There's a poetic sort of geometry to it that makes my artistic sensibility go pitter-pat.

This is so great.

Jason Seiler said...

Beautiful piece . . . you're such an inspiration!!!

Tevik Avakyan said...

This is amazing! I can really feel the intensity and emotion of your drawing...please post more!

Scarlet Verdeja said...

may i say that the emotion that you put in your drawings is quite something.

Howard Shum said...

Good energy!

Chris Bivins said...

Really cool image. I cant believe that was in 96! I was only 11 at the time and still drawing from comic books. Its really cool to see older pieces from artist. I can see the growth and progression of your skills since then. Really inspiring.

Nathan Lindsay said...

Its so awesome that while getting hit in the back of the head with an exploding chair, he is effortlessly launching an entire man into the air. So cool Marcelo.

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks everybody!

Hubcap10, yep...on occasion I feel like I'm punched in the jaw by some big guy and launched several feet into the air.

Jed, thanks. I know-I know, I should get off my butt and just do it. I was working on a comic during the time I was commissioned for this project, and it dovetailed nicely into this work.

Shuku, that was the attempt. In order to get the movement in the drawing, I had to push the rhythm.

Tevik, Scarlet, Seth and Howard...thanks. That's what i was aiming for. For me, art is like music, ya gotta pour yer guts into it. Art without emotion becomes more like decoration.

Thanks Chris, it would be terrible to think I haven't gotten better in the last 12 years. Glad you noticed.

David Colman said...

nice mo! But when did you do this portrait of my trip to the bar that year? you caught my likeness..well done

serious note: what type of pencil did you use on the ledger paper.... 2B - 4B-6B? and tissue I am sure

Marcelo Vignali said...

Thanks again Clownninja, Qstom, El Grande, Ferdinan, Lorraine, R.dress, Rob and David.

To answer your question David, I can't remember exactly what I did on this particular drawing since it was drawn a dozen years ago...but I remember what the pencil technique was. I would lay in my values with a 6B pencil and use a tissue to get my soft values. Then, I would tighten up the drawing with an HB pencil, using a 2B pencil for the darker values.

Great power in this one !
WallllluP!
