540416_2525544116525_180809189_n My name is Donovan Ybanez and traditionally I am a portrait and figure artist. My work has been on display in New York, Washington D.C., and Oklahoma.

I believe there is nothing more beautiful than the human form. A person once told me if you can draw the human form, you can draw anything. I believe that to be so true. We see beauty in every day life, from the crystal clarity of a baby’s eyes, the beautiful curves of a woman’s body, or the granite sculptured form of athleticism. There is nothing like it.

Currently I am exploring work for virtual worlds using 3D design concepts, while continuing my art practice of traditional painting.
