My name is Alex Benites, I live in Ontario CA. I am 22 years old and I have been drawing since I was about 5 years old. I always have been fascinated by art, but mostly animated drawings. I love drawing/sketches of animated characters and I usually draw my own characters. "Why do I do the art I do?"...The only answer I have for that is when a vision appears in my mind I simply just draw it on a piece of paper There has been many times where I just sit down and something pops in my mind, or I feel I want to create a character or something. It's always been in my blood to draw since the first time I drew my first drawing. I guess I'm hoping that one day my drawings and creations will be noticed.

All drawings where done with the basic paint program in my computer. Most people that have seen them have asked and think that I used Photoshop.... but I just simply used the mouse and basic paint program.

Angel is the first drawing that I actually completed and liked. I started off drawing Angel, and then I added the scenery and the woman.
Black Angel.... I drew the elder angel reaching out for the fallen or as I called it Black Angel. I felt I should of called it fallen angel...I guess I have something with angels?
Last one I just drew up a boy being held because he feels alone but actually he is. I guess that's how I was feeling at the time. I guess I can share this story another time.

I create all characters.... if you would like to see more please do let me know, and I will be glad to show you more!

Note from Webmaster: These images were sent to me in a bitmap form due to the fact they were designed in a standard paint program. I compressed them to jpeg which did not do them justice. I have added a link to a view in original state. I urge you to visit this page (even if they are very large files) to really see what this artist can do with a standard paint program.Study in Graphite
