Red Sun

Some sketches made with Japan in mind. The landscape I draw from reference of a photo I've took in the real place near my house. Just some warm ups to keep the muscles of the hand alive.

Dancing Jap Girl


Last weekend I went to a Disco (dance club) in Nagoya. That's my impression of the thing...

Hand-drew, then scanned and photoshop painted. Its just a sketch with a lot of effects, the lines are quite loose. Hope you liked it!

Indie Gri (Ingrid)

Ingrid is one of that very rare type of friend that you must be glad if you find one of that kind in your entire life. As me, she is trying to understant the world by walking alone across it, living new experiences and discovering alot more of herself. She is fully emotive, passioned, girly-latin-lover person and there`s not a better place to someone like that to be as Paris.

Yesterday I read her blog, all the posts, a kind of diary of her adventures. Just like mine! And I think I discovered a new friend within an old one. Funny how things change when you know secrets about people. But Ingrid isn`t ashamed of telling her fellings, her fears, her desires... and she do it so well that inspired me to make a little draw of her. Hope you liked Gui! Love!

Sketching at Work!

Don't tell my boss, but I just can't hold the will of sketching in any piece of paper. Bills, Letters, anything with a blank part would do. As the computer saves a work or load the e-mails, my eyes turn to the block at the side of my keyboard, and I draw without compromise, no rush, just for fun.

When somebody crosses the run and says: "hey, that look like Terminator" So, I make some elements to transform my drawing onto that.

Usually I draw something that I found interesting that day. If I see a pretty girl at the street, it's a good theme for another drawing. And so on...

Musashi - the path of the warrior


















Altought not recognized as a true bushi by some japanese experts, Musashi is a icon of the samurai culture. He started from nothing, as a hungry little boy in a small village called Miyamoto, and became one of the greatest warriors in Japan. Famous by using both swords during a embate, Musashi has won over 60 deadly duels during his live. I see his personal path as a analogyof my own live, walking through wildness, facing every kind of difficulties, meeting important friends and always chasing the dream of become "strong". It`s easy to imagine the decisions of take as duels, the ways of life as unknow paths throghout montains and forests...

This is a simple study over the character, I was trying to get the thing again in Painter. Has being over 4 months since I last used it. The drawing is a little loose for my style, but I`m posting anyway. Later I intent to do a better homenage to one of my favorite historical figure: Miyamoto Musashi.

The Tale of the Monk and the Scorpion


That's a not-approved illo I made for the gospel magazine I'm actually working on. Discarded because of the monk's drawing... well, the original tale tells about a monk that saves an scorpion from drowning in a river. As the monk take the scorpion out of the water, he receive lots of bites from the poison insect. When his pupils ask him why he saved that tricky little devil he says "The scorpion was acting accordantly with its own nature. So did I.".

Hope you like!

Standing

... trying not to sleep at work... zzzzz

Days here are so hot and quiet... sometimes all I want is take a nap after lunch. Hum, maybe in Spain (in the future).

Can you draw using only straight lines? I bet you can!

Anger Hunger

"Ugly face to me is hunger" is what Mama used to say when I made ugly faces to her (or something like that). Inspired by the 300 movie faces... so cool!

In Japan "300" has just being release, last place in the world premiere I believe. Now, I didn't like that thing with the spartan queen... wtf was that? C'mon, there wasn't any better histories to tell to make the film longer?

New Portrait

I hate to post pictures on my profile, but I can't find a cool pic either... so I decided to play a little with PS and mix photo+drawing. I always thought this drawing puppets looks kinda funny. The original file I took from here. That's my new avatar (by now).

Indian (in a bad mood)


My illustration teacher used to say that I like to "lick" the painting 'till it gets no brush strokes, just smooth gradients. That's true, its hard for me to know when to stop painting. So, I did this drawing and decided to stop in the middle of the process. Hope you like it!

note: I'm trying to get the thing with PS, since I not using Painter by now.

Spidey 3


Yeah, I've watched the new feature film from our friend Spidey, twice, and I like it! So, I couldn't hold my pencils on lunch time and that's the result: Venon vs Parker sketch. In my humble opinion, this movie is even better than the other two. Great special FX, dramatization, gorgeous girls everywhere... and kick-ass villains.

The Duelist

Maybe some of you may remember I said that I was going to move on to another place. So, here I am. Japan!

Just like our friends samurais, I´m trying to increase my skills here. It´s have beeing difficult to adapt to the new rythm, food, and everything. But all had been worthwhile until now and I believe I did the right thing by coming to the manga-anime-game country.

I´m trying to learn japanese so I can do an curse in arts area. Wish me luck and keep visiting me sometimes. Thank you all!

Keep posting!

There´s not much to say about Heroc. He´s a guy that just like to be in trouble... maybe ´cause he actually IS trouble.

This was lost in my drawings folder... I just finished some details to post and that´s it: FIRST POST OF THE YEAR!
