Soltero Figure Drawing Presentation at SD Comic Con, 2011

Soltero was joined by two great artists, Alex Nino and Stephen Silver. The three rooms were filled to capacity with over 300 attendees. A problem at the beginning with no Elmo, but it was resolved.

 There were three volunteers who modeled. Thank you for your help and feel free to contact us.
Alex did an inking demo (inking over a very rough Buscema layout) and Stephen had great tips on drawing, including gesture drawing.

Stay tuned for more.
