New Blog Thing GUYS!!

I guess being sorry doesn't work around here anymore, so I'm Moving on to this new Blog =D

I'm trying to be more active on the comunity, but beig at home with my family sometimes makes me very lazy, that's why I'm taking a new path to solve this lazy thing...

As I had some unsolved problems with this blog's templates (It doesn't friggin' WORK!!) I decided to give a new face to my presentation here on the internet by creating a new one, I'll put a link on the main bar so you don't get lost, and also a link to this one on the new blog so I don't lose the posts I made here =B

Also I take the oportunity to Thank you guys, I've been receiving a lot of views even though I haven't posted a living thing for the longest time, and also tell you that I would like to have a little more of feedback from you by making some commisions or contests =D

Well, here you have the link to the new Blog

After EONS (almost), of no posting anything, but ANYTHING! at all
I'm back, so you can punch me in the face anytime you want for abandoning you =)
BUT!, before you do me a facial surgery with your fists, I want to invite you all
(that means all the people that might be near Barcelona or IN Barcelona) to my first

This is a collab-expo with my classmates and also very good friends of mine, Diana Francitorra, David Fernández and Hakima El Kaddouri, all of them very professionals and also very talented.

You'll see lots of very good illustrations and you'll also be able to buy some reproductions 
we made, but in case u don't find an specific one just ask us if you go and see the expo!! =D

The name of the expo is "Leaving the Locker", we named it like that, since we all are leaving
this common life we had of putting everything we had inside the lockers at school, and also the schedules, classes and everything that meant that routine of going to school.

We're now a step from our title of illustrators, even though we have done something in the professional  world already, we want to celebrate all the artistic knowledge and skills we've gathered on school and show it to the world! xD

So I hope to see you there, even though I barely know anyone who sees this blog xD

Here you have our Poster, every face is a self-portrait, I put them together on Ps and the rest was also made digitally.

We'll open this Friday July 12th at 18:00 in El Guinardó, Cartagena St. 318. BCN
You can take the Metro service, Line 5, it's the dark-blue one and arrive to Sant Pau / Dos de Maig, so you'll be closer xD

Here I also leave you my fellas' Blogs, so you can check them out too =)

You can also check out the store where we're doing this, they sell amazing handmade stuff:


Well guys, may this post be the first of many on this month.
I really hope to keep up the rhythm this time and start posting everything I've been working on this time =)

All said, you now can proceed with the face-punching

See you soon!!!! =D

Petshopmania - Shops around the World

Finally Guys!!

After several months working along with a very talented crew,Petshopmania, the game were my classmate Marina Vidal and myself made all the illustrations, has been released!!! =D

It's a very addictive and challenging game, I must say that I enjoyed looking and being part of the process of creating a game, was a wonderful experience throughout these months, were not only I saw and realize how much work this takes to be done, even being a small game, but I could also see, along with my classmate, that as illustrators, this kind of challenges makes us better, at least that's what I can tell from the firsts ideas and sketches we had.

As the game goes through pet shops around the world, I was requested to make the backgrounds for each of them, while my classmate was asked to make the animals that were inside.

And here I introduce you all the pet shops backgrounds I made for the game =)

African Pet Shop

Chinese Pet Shop

Poles Pet Shop

Indian Pet Shop

Martian Pet Shop

Sea Pet Shop

Throughout the development we were also asked to make other ilustrations for the game, for example, I made the background for the main menu, but I also used the animals Marina made previously; the slide menu were you choose the worlds were something that I made too using backgrounds and animals made previously; also the inside of every shop was drawn by me, and the shop were you can buy coins and stuff was made by Marina.

Obviously this was a team work, the developers and designers made a fantastic job giving life  to this nice game, so I basically give all my thanks to them who did and still doing a great work =D

If you think I'm fooling you, try Petshopmania yourself, and you'll see that I'm no joking, for the apple users the game will come out in less than a week I guess, I'll post the link here as soon as  possible =D 

And here you have the page of Marina Vidal Illustrations, so you can see some of her work too =)

Well guys, see you soon and 
expect some Sketch Corner for the end of the week!

Byeee!! =D

Tryng to Move On (WIP + Finished)

Hello again!

I wanted to bring this to you, so you can see how I looked the past 2 weeks
while I was moving on xD

First of all, I don't have as many photos as the others WIP, but I
believe that these three are enough for what I want to explain...

Do you know that expression that sometimes mistakes give opportunities to great
discoveries, well, this big brown stain on my drawing is the proof of it, but let's go step by step, shall we?

First I Traced a previous Sketch on a watercolor paper and stained with a sponge the whole paper with brown, then (I most say this was the first time I actually made something seriously on gouache) I started painting, that dark brown "teddybear" was the first thing I did, I regret it as soon as I did it, but the it became a wonderful funny add to the final painting...

I made a very watery gouache, since this was my first time, but the figure of the teddybear, gave me Literally headache, no joke, was a total pain in the eyes... 

 Here, as you can see, disappeared, my teacher had the most fantastic Idea, cover it till' we could decide properly how to fix it, So I continued painting, adding lights and shadows to the composition.

When I got almost everything done, my teacher came again and said: "I would just tear that brown thing"

Magic Words were those, thus 'that' we did, then everything made sense, it was the right color,
the right place, the right amount and of course, the right time...

Now you can see why...

After that I just added some graphite on some places.

Hope you like this as much as I did!! =D

P.D.: The original from this one probably will be posted on the "Salón del Cómic" at Barcelona
on my school Stand, "Escola Llotja", so if you want to see it on live, go and check out some other great Illustrations from my classmates =)

See you!!!

Sketch Corner 16

Hi Guys!

I'm so sorry for the delay, I've been moving on the past 2 weeks and my internet
connection right now sucks, so, today I'll bring you not 6, or 7 pages, but 100!! pages =D
I'm just kidding haha...   Please don't kill me D=  
Here you have 8 pages =)


Here are some random sketches, trying to use more the blue pencil...

More Sketches for TED by Tony DiTerlizzi

Another Sketch for TED xD

This was a class stuff, the thing is there had to be a repetition and then 
a sudden change you could see from very far...

Some random sketches and the Mite from Ni No Kuni xD

Getting bored in the train back home, so I made this Bully-face guy
and that weird looking Alien[?]

Testing some poses inspired by some epic songs I use to hear xD

And finally this masked guy and some sketches on the right for the
Under the Dome's class-project I'm working on =)

I gotta say I wont be uploading weekly as I use to, due to my problem with the internet xD
but don't worry, I'll be working on new stuff, and as soon as I get a better connection
I hope that I can upload things more often...

So, see you next time!!

Fast-Painting 2

Hi Guys!

Since I've been doing some of this fast-painting, I guess I can make a some kind of 
series if this gets enough love =D

These were made with Corel Painter 11 in less than 3 hours, finally I got the
chance to test better the program and see how it's like.

These are based on Under the Dome novel by Stephen King, if you had read it, you might know
what's going on xD

Sketch Corner 15

Hello guys!!
Hope you're having a nice weekend so far.
Here I brought you some sketches full of rage and others full of peace, you can see
with this I had a quite stressful moment when I was doing this pages, but then, as sudden as it came, it left, here I leave you with the transition =D


A picture is worth a thousand words, I couldn't do anything right 
during that week, and basically this is the rage I must contain inside me and manage
to express and filter through my drawings, but this time I just had too much (you
had to see the people in the train staring at me while I was drawing this, their faces were
just so funny xD).

 As you can see, the things here were cooling down, First I made the one on
the right, it's more controlled than the other, and then the total peaceful on the left 
is represented by this delicate girl en the left, I just left the sketch that way, 
as peaceful as it could be.

Always after I let go all the rage in one drawing like in the first one, my drawings
tend to get a little resent[?], I don't know if that's the word for it, but basically
these are some random sketches after the rage storm.

Some other sketches from Tony DiTerlizzi's book Ted, getting new ideas, but
these are not quite the ones I'm using right now.

 These drawing was first an idea from the book Under the Dome by Stephen King
 (Highly recommended), I'm probably going to do this from another perspective, but 
I'm currently using this idea on another drawing I expect to finish soon.

Well guess that's all for this week, I wanted to clarify that I'm usually a very calm person,
this rage you see in the first one is something I never express in real life, it's something, as
I said, manage to filter through my drawings, in fact, some of my best drawings come when
I'm a little bit angry xD

Hope you liked this weekend's issue of Sketch Corner, 
be calm guys!! haha

See you next Weekend!!


A while ago I made a fast-painting, 
it was a pretty nice thing to try, but I must say, doing it on traditional media
is quite a journey, you just don't put whatever you want wherever you want.

 I made this first one with a Watercolor base and then used Gouache to create the more thick and opaque parts, almost all the strokes were made with an sponge to get that texture, at the end I just didn't use much water so I could make drier strokes.

Then we have this one, I made it on Painter, first time I used this program, I couldn't get 
the same feeling as in the traditional, but as a first touch this was pretty nice, I made it on  half hour more  or less, I can't wait to get a new computer to test more this program, even though it's more complicated than Photoshop you get other interesting results =D

In case I get the chance, I'll bring you more speed paintings and stuff made with Painter.

Hope you liked it

See You!!

Sketch Corner 14

Well guys
This week I got you 5 pages of sketches, either for work or school (busy times jeje)

Here some ideas for the Red Riding hood custom story I posted last week,
the one in the top right is actually one of the sketches I used.
the character on the right bottom corner is just a random sketch =)

The sketch in the left is an Idea I wanted to use for 
the cover of the custom story (I just couldn't). And the happy fellow on the top
right is a face I had to repeat 3 times, but adding later different stuff, so they could
be different people, I'll show you the final as soon as my teacher gives it back to me.

Some Ideas for the Artistic drawing class, we have to create 5 characters that can be related on the way we want, for example, I chose to make little creatures that can be found on a backyard (A Stick-man, a Leaf-woman, a Coal-men, an Acorn-men and a  Key-man ), basically we have to keep the same style, but from what I can gather, this exercise is a gift =D

Another class stuff, from an illustrated book we have to recreate
a new illustration with our own style and work as if it's going to be published, so
we have to pay attention to the size. I chose "Ted" from Tony DiTerlizzi, and is about
an imaginary friend named Ted, these are previous sketches to see how he will be.

Finally, but no less important, some drawings for a game that's coming out soon.
Is a game for kids on iPad of a Pet shop, these are Ideas for the Mars shop pets.
A little cute Alien, A worried Chewie, Marvin from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Awsome movie, gotta read the books), and the next two are random pets...

Well people hope u like this and I see you next weekend =D

Ni No Kuni IS HERE!! =D

Well, Here is IT! =D
So far an awsome game, you feel surrounded by the magic of  the Studio Ghibli, and
all the details they gave to the whole world of Ni No Kuni is just crazy.
Even the Wizard's Companion Book is so well detailed in every way, you can imagine you can actually live the same adventures as Oliver does.
Very recommended for the Studio Ghibli's fans. A Masterpeace so far!! =D

 This is a photo of the Wizard's Edition I got last saturday, a must buy just for the amount of effort and love they put to this project.

And to celebrate it, a quick drawing I made from one of the characters, a Mite Familiar prepared for the fight! =D

Hope u liked this post, see you! =D
