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!!!
