After 2 year and about 2 months, I filled my sketchbook. This is my 2nd one that I’ve filled If you visited my blog before you have seen a few post of portrait sketches I’ve done using photo reference. The sketchbook I used is a canson sketchbook with 100 pages, 9×12 inches. I wish I could show you all my sketches so you can see the progress I’ve made with each sketch. Just show the importance of practicing to get better. Here are a few sketches that I’ve posted on this blog before along with some news one. For the last five to eight pages I decided to see if I could sketch a portrait just using ink.
Russia, Russia, Russia! We have all heard it on tv, radio, read it online, newspapers. The media and the democrats obsession to tie President Trump with collusion with Russia. Even now there is still no evidence that Trump had any collusion with Russia. Still the media and democrats will not drop the matter and hoping evidence will appear out of thin air. I will not bore you with details cause am sure this make news across globe to where there freedom of the press.
Why the obsession with Russia? Why are Americans so desperate in making Russia the “Bad Guy”, the enemy, and why now? Yes! these are the two toughest kids on the block and have been close to all out war with each other. Maybe our obsession with Russia lays within our culture and society. We are influenced that Russia is the bad guy, the number one enemy that the United states needs to defeat. This influence doesn’t come from education, nor is taught in home, but by the entertainment industry. Hollywood notion to depict Russia as the ultimate enemy for the United states and to the rest of the free world. Movies that are created to entertain us with action and scenarios of war, are only to stereotype the Russia government and people. The world fear the Russians and it only the United States who can defeat them. The movie clips below are a few examples of movies where it the United States vs Russians.
