Splash

Just keep, keep, keep falling... until...Splash! And a burst of colors.

Test image for a potential invitation card. I did this trying to imitate the style of some graffiti artist I have seen around (Suso33). Awesome style. A combination of pencils, ink and PS.

Bull Fighter


My latest Project for a T-shirt submission. Still in the making. This is version 0.2. Main character done in graphite, addons in PS. Just playing around with some tattoos and some particular piercings. I wanted to add the names of some famous plazas and some more religious imaginery (Bull fighting is quite linked to religious events).

I am not very happy with the final result. It is not not exactly the image that was in my head. I did not try hard enough to get realism in the bull head. Thus the comic style of it...And extra practising is really needed for human anatomy and extra graphite lights and shadow games. Despite all, it is quite fun to make.

Enjoy!

P.S. This image does not pretend to be neither a critic to bull fighting, nor some attempt to glorify it. The objective is to create a cool character.

Digital vs Handmade


Sometime ago I made three drawings as a present to someone. Recently, I was tasked with the mission of improving the contrast of the images. Apparently the illos did not have enough color. All of them, including the one shown above, have pastel colors and, therefore, are not ideal for a white wall. I accepted the challenge (actually not a very difficult one). Since I did not dare messing with the original, I decided to use PS. This is the result and the comparison between both images. Enjoy.
