Part of my first project for Advanced Illustration this semester. We were told to illustrate 6 portraits of persons (living or dead) who we would want to have as "Facebook Friends."

My favorite of all the illustrations I did was of the United States' 26th president - Theodore Roosevelt. This guy was pretty much the most hardcore, kick-ass president ever. I'm reading a biography about him by Douglas Brinkley (fittingly titled The Wilderness Warrior), and let me tell you, Teddy was full of vigor and wit!

This was painted with Copic sketch markers on marker paper in a matter of 3 hours. I was SO HIGHafterwards...

This is the analysis of Communism, made in a form of religious Iconostasis. It is one of my own artistic work, which i did for myself as the main focal point of my artistic interest and poetics, it is the analysis of the political systems, world history and leaders, and the resulting consequences of their actions towards their subjects, the people and civilization, which are ultimately bad and evil. The central point for completely understanding my work is the character of the politician, which is an archetype of evil. It is made by watercolors, ink and acrylic on paper, 66x84 cm (drawing itself, the paper is somewhat larger). It is glued to a cardboard, framed and put behind protective glass.

My own drawing and composition.
Pencils: b5, b3, b2, b, h, h3, h4, h9
Format: A4
10 h

Okay, what is it and why I drew it? Please read this, please :)

It is the most powerful cavalry in the world. Spartans at Thermopylae resisted very large army and this is Wow.
However, our Polish hussars overcame the armies of up to ten times greater than the composition of the Polish army. For example:
1605 - Battle of Kircholm
1610 - Battle of Kłuszyn
1621 - Battle of Chocim and much more....

Three times Hussars saved Europe from disaster. For 125 years they were undefeated in any battle. Spears of the Hussar had a length of more than 6 meters.

At the battle they used a hussars saber (by many historians believe that weapons was the most powerful melee weapons in the world)
History says that one of the hussars in the battle of Kłuszyn killed six Russians in one charge.

For his service in the army they not getting any money, they fought only for the glory and honor. Hussars wealth was compared with the wealth of the French kings from this period.
And the only ones in the world Poland with the hussars conquered Moscow in 1610.

Hussars said about himself that if the sky has fallen, they hold the sky on their blades of spears.
I'm very proud of this part of our history. ;'p

Soldier, Continental Army, 1779

During the War of the American Revolution, the Continental Army was an integrated army, with men of both European and African descent serving side by side in the same units. According to a Hessian eyewitness, "No regiment is to be seen in which there are not negroes in abundance: and among them are able-bodied, strong, and brave fellows."

The integrated part played by the African American soldiers in the Continental Army was one which, sadly, would not be repeated until after the Second World War.

From the epic Halo game series I give you, Master Chief Petty Officer John-117 - In Pencil no less :)

Along with this epic video game series, this was an epic drawing, you never really understand how much detail is involved in these characters until you try to draw them, my hat goes off to the original artists who create these fantastic characters from scratch - they have enormous imaginations and have incredible attention to detail.

Anyway, loved drawing this one - on Bristol Board Smooth A3 Size paper, usual mix of mechanical and traditional pencils - with one exception.... I normally use a Faber Castell 8B for the very dark areas and 'black-outs', this time I have used Steadler Mars Lumograph 8B which gives that very dark black without any of the shine from the Faber Castell - it is not as easy to blend or fade, but is great for making black - really black :) The only other unusual tool used was 'Tipp-Ex' for the stars! Time - about 20 hours.
