New interviews!

I want to share with you this couple of recent interviews, one is more about my personal view of art and life, and  the other is about my technical view.

I hope you like them!


Well after 3 months of paying tribute to some of my favorite series as a kid, I have come to the end of this "ODE TO MY CHILDHOOD", (at least for now) and I've decided to end this with a big "X-Men" illustration, which I made because I loved this series so much, and I'm talking about the one of the 90's, not the new one, I truly enjoyed that series, from the beginning to the end of its transmission on tv.

And what I wanted it to paint here, was a combination between the most popular heroes and villains of the serie, good and evil characters, along with a composition of cold vs hot colors, that you will probably notice if you follow the line of the fire , also I'm sure if you were fan of this series you will be able to understand the composition of it, who are the characters on the right, and who are the ones on the left.

I truly hope you guys enjoyed this series as much as I did painting it, and I'm aware that there are a lot more great series that I didn't painted, but I've tried to focus on the ones that really marked my childhood, maybe from time to time I will paint some new ones, but for now, I want to create other series that I have in mind and I hope you enjoy them as well.

So I leave you with this last illustration of my "ODE TO MY CHILDHOOD"

Also I want to share with you an article I wrote about this "ODE" with the whole list of illustrations and their original cartoon intros

I hope you enjoy it!

(Goku's Dream)

OK…THIS IS IT! This cartoon was definitely my favorite of them all, so this will be a very large introduction!

You know those movies or cartoons, that really mark your childhood? well, "Dragon Ball" marked mine, from the moment I discovered "DBZ" I followed it till the end, I watched every chapter, every movie, I played every game, I had all the toys, I knew all the names of every character, I was fascinated with it, man! it was an amazing journey for me, I still get goosebumps just by hearing any of their fantastic intro songs.

But this illustration has another backstory, "Dragon Ball" was also one of the first things I draw when I was a kid, I did tons of "DBZ" painting, so now, I wanted to paint a more realistic version of them, but I knew it was a very hard thing to do, because of one thing... their faces, interpret realistically a face I saw for so many years, in an animated version, with such unique features as theirs, is not easy, but after watching the live action movie, I was definitely sure it wasn't , everyone would think on a different face to give those characters, because so many people love them, and it would be tremendously difficult to make everyone happy, and that hair! how do you paint it realistically, without making it look silly? , and that is why this illustration came to me, and not the other way around, and many of you will be able to realize that  this composition is not mine, and I dont have any intention to claim it as mine, in fact, that is the curious thing about this illustration.

I was surfing the internet and suddenly I saw this wonderful poster of "Rainbow 6" (video game) and immediately thought, oh boy!, "Dragon Ball" would look awesome in this composition, and also, it will solve the problem of the faces, because in this way, everyone could imagine them as they would like them to be, so I decided to borrow this composicion and paint the "DBZ" characters in one similar to that one, I never do this, but I couldn't get the idea out of my head, maybe someday I will dare to paint their faces, but for now, this is how I want to represent them and leave the rest to your imagination.

Now, the name of the illustration, talks about what is happening there, if you know the story of "Dragon Ball Z", you would know that neither "Goku" nor "Trunks" or "Vegeta" were present in that part of the story, that's why it is called like that, putting a scene that will only could be possible in Goku's dreams.

I leave you here a link to one of the original openings,  (English)  or  (Spanish).

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" 

I could easily say that this guys are definitely on my "Top 3" favorite cartoons of all time, I loved this guys, and I still do, their toys, movies, games, everything, i just can't get enough of them.

But i also have to say, that, this specific ninja turtles series, had a different purpose that the rest of the "ODE", I painted them like a year ago, as an exercise to see how I would redesign them with a more realistic look, before seeing the new designs of the movie, and this is what came out of that, a little more clean, i tried to stay true to the original design as much as i could.

Although I'm sure this is not going to be the last time i will paint the ninja turtles, but was a good exercise.

let me leave you here a link to the original"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoon intro, so you can get nostalgic too!

Also here is a link to the full idea behind the design of this guys.

    • "FAT HEROES" is a personal project, in which i take the famous super heroes and paint them with a different approach.
      "DC" was the first one, and because so many people liked it, i decided to do a complete series of them.

      In this series my main focus was on the idea, so i tried to keep the painting simple and fun, here you can see characters from the "DC" world like, "Batman""Robin""Superman" and "Flash", as well as characters from"Marvel", such as the "Avengers""Spider Man""Fantastic Four" and the "X Men", also from "Capcom" some"Street Fighter" characters and of course the beloved "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

      Also i've included a tutorial step by step and a speed painting video on how to paint one of them, in this case the  "X Men", done for: "design.tutsplus.com".

    Also Here is a link to the full idea behind the design of this guys.

    I hope you like it!
