PinK



















I love girls with style. It´s hard to define women´s facial muscles without give them a hard "macho" look. Specially when painting. This drawing I made to show some friends drawing techniques on PS, but I finished it on Painter as usual.

Thank you everybody for the happy hollidays votes! I´ll try to reach you all by Blogger!

This was made using Flash pos-produced in PS. Hope you enjoy!

Marcelo de Moura & Asterix

This mounth "Asterix and the Vikings" had its premiere here in Brazil. I had the opportunity of working together with the brazilian team responsable to animate and to do the clean-ups of approximately 15 min of movie footage.

That´s a caricature of Marcelo, the producer-coordinator, with the film characters I made to a local magazine called "Recreio".

Bright Eyes - Medusa






















I´ve heard that some guys got petrifyied just by looking at her. Wow, what a woman!

TroLL


















I´ve been working alot these days, but I´m always finding some time to draw my things. This Troll I made to a friend, Bruno, who is adicted to Warcraft. I love this Blizzard style of doing creatures. Hope you enjoy!

No Match for Kojiro - IF












Sasaki Kojiro was a great bushi, or samurai, of the Edo period. His skills was unbelieveble when in duels. Maybe the "aido" technique, draw the sword, the one I like most. The oponent didn´t even see the strike coming. Sasaki used to practice in swallows when full flying.

Secret Agent Men


"Live and let DIE". Some not-really-serious characters made on flash.

Mulan of my Dreams



After the male-female incident in Atila´s war, Mulan didn´t get to manage herself in any job on her village. So, she decided to get into the porn showbiz! Good for us!
I was so tired of drawing all those stinky-muscled men... people was starting to doubt my masculinity. Hehehehehe!
This style was inspired by the very fine works of the artists CHEEKS and AYANIMEYA. Thanks!

Neanderthal Tiffany´s Showman


















I strongly advise not to make any jokes on his jewery or makeup thing. He´s not very receptive to critics... the last guy become soup. Better not talk with him at all.

Illegal Boxer














Heart Breaker - the illegal boxer. He´s that kind of person that nobody likes to see mad. Inspired by the Brad Pitt´s character from "Snatch".

Sacredfice


















I just couldn´t think any greater sacrifice than His.

Gueixa


















Following the "inspired by movies" tendence I´m on at this moment, another illo based on a cinema character. Actually she doesn´t look at her at all, but I was thinking in Tomoe from the japanese movie "Twilight Samurai". Gueixa, the perfect women to have on our side. They doesn´t make any of those anymore. :(

Favorite Scene











I´m using Flash alot this week. Ok, that´s my favorite scene from the movie. I didn´t get any references to draw this (maybe I should). The idea is to quick draw the hole thing at once.

Wolverine Sliced















It´s really cool to work with monocromatics in Flash ´cause we can easily switch the tonal control and adjust depth on shapes. This Wolvie I made like that.

Superman II














Hello! I´ve watched the new feature movie "Superman Returns" and had suddenly this feeling of make some super´s illustrations. Despite of that "new look" on the uniform, I liked Brandon Routh as Clark Kent/Supes. My only critic is that they made things too similar with the first 77´s movie, but still being an good movie. This is my version of Superman for comics/animation. Maybe I post another illo with the movie mood. Cya!

Mulata Requebrando! (illo fri)



















Past week I saw a samba show here in São Paulo. When I saw that "dance" would be this week´s theme for illo friday I didn´t think twice. That´s it! A mulata shaking her body in a carnival day. Such a pretty view, believe me.

I would like also to thanks everybody for the nice comments on my blog. Unfortunally I´m not abble to aswer wich one of you properly, for matters of time. Don´t you think I don´t care. I really love to visit everybody blogs and check the progress. THANK YOU ALL!

Square SW



















Just a silly illo about jedis and sith lords. I´m remembering how to draw in Flash. Sometimes I miss the simplicity of vector works.

Apenas um desenho bobo sobre Jedis e Lordes Sith. Estou relembrando o Flash. As vezes eu sinto falta da simplicidade de se trabalhar com vetor.

Superman Returns (to my blog)






















Okay, I admit: I´m a big Supes fan! Can´t wait so see the special fx in the new movie. It Seens that will be a great one this time, I mean, just look at Lex.

Certo, eu confesso: sou um grande fã do Super. Não posso esperar para ver os efeitos especiais no novo filme. Parece que será um filmasso, só pelo Lex.

Something went wrong in the Lab (illo fri)


- Hey Doc! The teleport was ok? What?
- So-sorry

- E aí Doutor! O teleporte deu certo? O quê?
- De-desculpe-me.

FACETAS






















Some quick sketches I did in Painter to increase velocity while drawing. I took 5~15 minutes each figure.

Alguns rascunhos rápido que fiz no Painter para aumentar minha velocidade de desenho. Eu levei de 5 a 15 minutos em cada figura.

Illustration Friday - Spring






















A weird outworld spring. I didn´t want to create a traditional "spring" figure, so I had this sci-fi idea wich is closer to the work I´m developing now.

Uma estranha primavera de outro mundo. Eu não queria criar uma figura de uma "primavera" tradicional, então tive essa idéia de ficção científica que é mais próxima do trabalho que estou desenvolvendo agora.

Head Cop


















Okay, okay! I know. I promisse to start posting the comic soon. By now just another (yeah, one more) scketch from my little "graphic novel" (I wish). That´s the guy who leads that two commando droids I´ve posted.

Tá bom, tá bom. Eu sei. Prometo que começarei a postar o gibi logo. Por ora apenas outro (é, mais um) rascunho da minha pequena "graphic novel" (quem me dera). Esse é o cara que lidera aqueles dois tiras andróides que postei.

Made on Painter - 50'

Punk Chain Master


Ouch! This must hurt. I really enjoyed to design this character.

Ai! Isso deve doer. Eu gostei muito de fazer o design desse personagem.

Fight Scene


Another illustration from "Plugged". I´m trying to figure out the look of the hero, vilains and scenarios. Costume design is also a thing I want to focus. Just a few more style studies and I begin to draw the comic.

Outra ilustração de "Plu66ed". Estou tentando descobrir como será o visual do herói, vilões e cenários. Figurino é uma outra coisa em que quero me focar. Apenas mais alguns estudos de estilo e eu começo a desenhar a HQ.

Zer0´s Girl


First concept for Zer0´s girl. She´s one of the main characters of the story and the romantic pair of the male main character Zer0. Above all, she´ll be responsable for the quest they´ll run throught. Names for her are welcome!

Primeiro conceito para a garota do Zer0. Ela é uma das personagens centrais da história e o par romântico do personagem principal Zer0. Sobretudo, ela será responsável pela jornada que eles irão percorrer. Nomes para ela são bem-vindos!

Cops from Plu66ed


Another inspirational for my comic book "Plu66ed". That´s the special force of the police, droids. I´m anxious to starting drawing, but I´ve been so busy...

Outro desenho inspiracional da minha história em quadrinhos "Plu66ed". Essa é a força tarefa da polícia, andróides (a ROTA do futuro). Estou ansioso para começar a desenhar, mas ando tão ocupado...

Evil Me (duh)


A dark version of myself as an evil samurai. I made it just for fun, to put on my msn icon display. Weird, huh?

Uma versão sombria de mim mesmo como um samurai do mal. Fiz só por brincadeira, para colocar no meu display do msn. Esquisito né?

March 2, 2006

Zer0


That's my first study for one of the main caracters. Yes, he´s an android. I gave him a little latin spice look: dark skin, brow hair and eyes. Lady´s oppinions would be welcome.

Esse é meu primeiro estudo para os personagens principais. Sim, ele é um andróide. Eu dei um visual com tempero latino: pele escura, cabelos e olhos morenos. A opnião das mulheres é bem vinda.

Blues, the bounty hunter


Another inspirational artwork from my upcoming crazy comic book. The provisory name for my futuristic cyberpunk history is Plu66ed.

Outro desenho de inspiração da minha história em quadrinhos. O nome provisório é Plu66ed.

Psyco Cyber Masked Punk (!)





















A concept from a twisted idea I had. I´m on the development of an personal (web) comic book and that is the very first image I´ve created for it. If things go right, news soon.

Um conceito de uma idéia maluca que tive. Estou desenvolvendo uma história em quadrinhos (para web) e essa é a primeira imagem que criei para ela. Se tudo der certo, novidades em breve.

Alice in Wonderland


Finally I´ve finished this painting. The most detailed one I made in Painter so far. This picture showed to me how import is to plan the illustration before start painting (what I didn´t) to avoid waste of time, specially issues with color and composition. Again I´ve tried to achieve the same feeling of my hand-drawings and my vector-based illustrations: straight lines. Hope you like it!

Finalmente eu terminei essa pintura. A mais detalhada que fiz no Painter até agora. Essa figura me mostrou como é importante planejar a ilustração antes de sair pintando (o que eu não fiz) para evitar perda de tempo, especialmente com problemas de cor e composição. Novamente, eu tentei atingir o mesmo sentimento dos meus desenhos feitos à mão e no vetor: as linhas retas. Espero que gostem!

MEANWHILE... on the net


Gandalf----------------------Yellow Bastard
Hi! I´m just finishing a pretty new piece to post here in the blog so that you all can see and give me some thoughts. But I believe that still gonna need a couple days more to be done. Meanwhile, I received a very nice tip from my friend Farrell: a site named Art.com where you can draw in a flash based canvas and save all the process of the painting. I just made 2 tests with it, take a look.
Ah! You can slide a time bar to see it faster ´till the end.

Olá! Estou quase acabando uma nova pintura para postar aqui no blog para que vocês possam ver e me dizer o que acharam. Apesar de achar que ainda vai levar mais alguns dias para terminar. Enquanto isso, eu recebi uma dica muito bacana de meu amigo Farrell: um site chamado Art.com onde você pode desenhar numa tela estilo flash e salvar todo o processo da pintura. Eu fiz apenas 2 testes com ela, dê uma olhada.
Ah! Você pode rolar a barra de tempo para ir mais rápido ao final.

Old Rought - and Apologies


Hi all! Thank you very much for the very nice feedback!
First of all: I´m so sorry for not beeing updating the blog as often as I promissed. My work is just keeping me very busy... when I get home, I´m too tired to draw. But I won´t give up. Right now I´m doing a lot of new stuffs that I can´t show you yet (freelance material, not yet used by the client). So, not to disappoint everybody, I´m posting a very old draw from an animated project I made for an Internet Provider here in Brazil. It´s from 3 years ago.

Olá Pessoal! Muitíssimo obrigado pelos comentários bacanas!
Primeiramente: Desculpem-me por não estar atualizando o blog periodicamente como havia prometido. Meu trabalho tem me deixado muito ocupado... quando chego em casa, estou muito cansado para desenhar. Mas eu não desistirei! Agora mesmo estou fazendo um monte de coisas novas que não posso mostrar ainda (por ser ainda material não divulgado de clientes). Então, para não desapontar todo mundo, estou postando um desenho muito antigo de um projeto que fiz para uma provedora de internet aqui no Brasil. É de três anos atrás.
