Long time no see! I have so much to tell you all, like where have I been, what have I been doing, how’s life and how did the Disney comic course wrapped. But for now, my yearly Ororo with love. ‚̧

Ororo 2014

After all year drawing ducks you really should have seen this one coming. :o)

My roommate has been trying to get me to play Journey for a while now and the other day I just couldn’t resist it any longer. I had to say yes. I had to play it. And all I could think about during those two hours was “I really feel like painting now.”
There’s something really inspiring to that game, call it the colour palette, the lighting, the feeling of grandeur and ruin…
So I made a fan art/speed painting thing. Enjoy it ūüôā

Mi compa√Īera de piso ha insistido durante el verano en que juegue al Journey y el otro d√≠a acab√© sucumbiendo. El juego ya de por si me llamaba, pero al jugarlo fue una experiencia completamente inspiradora. En las casi dos horas de vagar por el desierto solo pod√≠a pensar en las ganas que me estaban entrando de pintar.
As√≠ que aqu√≠ os dejo un peque√Īo ejercicio de speed painting que he hecho en homenaje al juego. Disfrutadlo ūüôā

Oh, hello! Do you remember me? I used to write a blog and all but then I graduated and considered myself on vacation and became extremely lazy.

One thing that stopped happening around here was the superheroe battle between Santi and me. It was all my fault. There has been a good side to the pause in a way and it is that I have been asked several times through the past months about the battle, that  has to be a good sign.

Santi’s been nagging me to post my goddamn hero so, here she is. Santi threw Professor Xavier into the ring and I don’t think he was imagining I’d hit back with Power Girl. The key element in here is¬†deception. First Professor Xavier gets deceived, them smashed and thus, disappointed.

Santi suggested one of the Phoenix five, but that’s just not the way I roll.

 

¬°Hola! ¬ŅOs acord√°is de mi? Sol√≠a escribir en este blog, pero entonces me licenci√© y me entr√≥ una pereza extrema.

Una de las cosas que dejaron de hacerse fue la batalla de superh√©roes con Santi. Es mi culpa. Ha habido un lado bueno en la pausa y es que muchos me hab√©is preguntado por c√≥mo iba la batalla y si hab√≠amos parado o segu√≠amos, eso tiene que ser buena se√Īal.

Y ahora, se√Īoras y caballeros, despu√©s de cincuenta millones de pullitas por parte de Santi, aqu√≠ ten√©is a Power Girl, lista para luchar contra Xavier. La clave en esta batalla es el subterfugio. El profesor primero es mezquinamente distra√≠do, entonces aplastado y, en consecuencia, quiz√°s algo decepcionado.

Power Girl

I had the best of times in London at the Comic Con and I came back bursting with motivation. I met nice people there, had lots of fun and came back home empty handed cause folks, we sold everything! The Sherlock fanbook keeps selling like crazy and the Doctor Who fanbook couldn’t have had a brighter start. I really hope that everyone who brought one of them home has enjoyed them.

In between sales and walks to the toilet I had some time to doodle some Doctor Who fanarts and I even got to sell one of them! I was dwelling between sheer happiness and sincere amazement. Here are some of the doodles, including the one I sold, River Song’s one.

 

Me lo he pasado en grande en la Comic Con de Londres y he vuelto con las pilas cargadas y con mucha motivaci√≥n. Conoc√≠ a gente interesante, me divert√≠ much√≠simo y, lo mejor de todo, volv√≠ a casa con la maleta vac√≠a porque, si se√Īores, ¬°lo vendimos todo! El fanbook de Sherlock sigue arrasando y el de Doctor Who ha empezado con muy buen pie. Espero que todos los que se llevaran una copia a casa lo hayan disfrutado.

Entre venta y venta y descontando los paseillos al ba√Īo me dio tiempo de dibujar un poquitillo de nada. Hice, sobre todo, fan arts de Doctor Who y al final consegu√≠ incluso vender uno de ellos, este asunto todav√≠a me tiene en √©xtasis. Aqu√≠ ten√©is algunos de los dibujillos que hice, inclu√≠do el que vend√≠, el de River Song.

Hey guys,

I’m about to take off, I’m travelling to London to spend the weekend at the MCM London Comic Con selling Sherlock and Doctor Who fanbooks which are made from collaborations from many different artists, all together passionate about both fandoms. The Sherlock fanbook is a reprint but the Doctor Who one has just been printed and I must say it is beautiful! There are so many talented artists in it, there’s even a double page traditional oil painting.

¡Me escapo el fin de semana en la MCM de Londres! Principalmente voy a vender fanbooks de Sherlock y Doctor Who junto a Alina, la jefaza que se carga al lomo la tarea de editar estas antologías colaborativas. De la de Sherlock ya os hablé pero tengo que decir que la de Doctor Who ha quedado increíble. Hay trabajos preciosos, con estilos muy variados y con mucho talento de todos los rincones del mundo.

I already talked about my collaboration to the Sherlock fanbook, but here’s a preview of the illustration I did for the DW one:

We are super excited to be there for the weekend. If you are around come say hello to the “Life in a Glasscase” stand.

Esta semana el workshop de Disney ha interrumpido la constancia de la batalla de superh√©roes. Mientras recupero tiempo y encuentro un rato para garabatear algo contra el Profesor X y, de paso, os cuento qu√© tal fue el workshop, os dejo aqu√≠ el portafolio tal y como lo ense√Ī√© en la revisi√≥n que me meti√≥ en el curso de Disney. Casi todo son cosas que ya habr√©is visto si me segu√≠s con cierta regularidad pero incluso en ese caso encontrar√©is alguna sorpresilla.

The superheroes battle has been discontinued this week due to the Disney workshop. While I find time to catch up and draw someone to fight against Professor X and, why not, talk to you a bit about the workshop itself, I’m leaving here for your eyes only my portofolio as it was in January for the review for the Disney course. If you’re a more or less constant follower you’ll have seen almost everything by this time but even if that is the case there are some things won’t have seen yet.

Earlier this week Santi went all pulp choosing the Man-Thing against my Swamp Thing. Perfect excuse for finally making the Delirium fanart I’ve been wanting to do for ages. Cause, imagine poor Man-Thing and his highly empatic neuronal net against the burst of incoherent feelings that is Delirium. Teehee.
On top of that, I think we were getting short of girls, cause even if you call the Swamp Thing and Man-Thing things, they’re still male based things.

For this post and specific piece I took lots of inspiration (face and neck position and hair) from an illustration by Joshua Middleton. I deeply admire this guy beyond reason and I fell in love with the delicacy of his Delirium commission from Wondercon the minute I saw it.

I twisted the expression a bit and completely changed the pose.

Delirium of The Endless

So, up to Santi finding something that can defeat her. I know who I’d go for, but only for laughs, but we’ll see what he does.

Also, from now on you can find the list of all the previous rounds in the Battle Time! tag at the top right side of the main page, next to About.

No, todavía no nos hemos aburrido de dibujar superhéroes. Esta semana Santi sacó a Aquaman contra la Antorcha Humana y hoy contraataco con, ni más ni menos que La Cosa del Pantano. Para quienes no lo sepan la Cosa del pantano es más bien una conciencia incorpórea que puede trasplantarse a cualquier ser vivo vegetal. Eso hace que los ataques físicos sirvan de poco contra ello y hace que mole mucho. 

Sigo insistiendo en el speed-painting. Hay partes de Swampy que me dan esperanzas de cara al futuro.

¬°Cuidado Aquaman, que vamos a por ti!

Nope, we’re not yet bored of the superhero game. Earlier this week Santi pulled Aquaman against the Human Torch and today I’m getting back at him with the Swamp Thing. The Swamp Thing, sweet little creature, is more of a bodyless consciousness that can trasplant itself into any vegetal lifeform. He is therefore super cool and almost invulnerable to physical attacks.

I keep insisting in painting. I think I might be starting to figure out how to do it. Some pieces of Swampy give me hope for the future.

Watch your back, Aquaman!

Hello folks!

So friend and kickass artist Santi and I teamed up for a collaborative just-for-fun superhero drawing battle. The rules are simple:

1. We have 3-4 (or more xD) days to draw the superhero that we think would win the last superhero the other drew.

2. All works: all publishers, all universes.

3. The game goes on until we’re bored or there are no more superheroes left that we can recall of. No repeating!

Santi started last week with Jubilee. And I say… “Human Torch! I choose you!” (Cause this is pretty much like pokemon xD)

Human Torch Lalala peq

For reasons that are impossible for me to articulate it got into my head that this was the best moment to start trying speed painting even if my brain kept on telling me “You don’t actually know how to paint”. Well… guess I had to start some time, right? Just ignore the flames… I was like… “this was going to be speed painting! I’m over this.”

Tell us what you think. Who would win this battle, Jubilee or Johnny?

Previous battle entries:
#1. Jubilee

It’s that time of the year again! ¬†Yes, the time when I do a fast sketch of Ororo Munroe (Storm) and get very happy because I see I got better comparing it to the one I drew last year.

So, first, last year’s Ororo:

Now, 2013’s Ororo.

2013 Ororo 2

 

I’m ashamed of her left arm, it’s awful, honestly. I clearly need to draw a few hundred hands and arms this year!
