First, thank you all for watching, faving, and commenting!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the awesome you guys throw at me! And because of that I always try to make sure I up my game and keep producing work you guys enjoy! 

For a while I have been feeling flat when it comes to my comic art. And because of that I have been studying and practicing various art techniques. I have made an effort to get better at light and shadow, I have started learning more about color and painting, which has always been a direction I have wanted to take my art. 

I have also been teaching workshops and classes again which is something I love to do. So, I am working on various tutorials and step by steps which you will be able to find on my blog here (more to come soon, promise!!): www.njvalenteart.com/blog/

Along with the tutorials, I am working on other ways of giving back to all you awesome folks out there that have supported my work. I have been playing around with the idea of a Patreon page, where you guys will be able to back me and receive tons of cool tutorials and WIPs, to help us all learn together. If there is anything in particular you would be interested in seeing please let me know, I am totally up for suggestions and ways of staying in touch with you all. 

Once again thank you!! I hope you all enjoy what I have coming as we move along together. I look forward to hearing from you all, until then, keep on drawing!

Check out my blog for a step by step tutorial on charcoal portraits. If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear them. And if you are interested in your own portrait, or as a gift, just send me a message or email me at nicholas.valente(at)gmail.com. Starting at $50 for a 12 x16, and I do work from photos.

Charcoal portrait by NJValente
Charcoal portrait
I have been spending a lot of time lately exploring other areas of art and expanding my business outside of just comics. I have been really enjoying the experience and have to say, I am excited about art again. 

This is a charcoal portrait commission I did for a family friend. I really enjoy portraiture and look forward to exploring it more. If anyone is interested in a charcoal portrait, its $50 for 12x16, this will only be for a limited time due to the demand. 

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy!!

I've been trying to use my black and white shapes more compositionally, and I'm happy with the results so far.

I'm thinking about opening an online store. Would anyone be interested in some original art and prints?
