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 motivación. Conocí a gente interesante, me divertí muchísimo y, lo mejor de todo, volví a casa con la maleta vacía porque, si señores, ¡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 baño me dio tiempo de dibujar un poquitillo de nada. Hice, sobre todo, fan arts de Doctor Who y al final conseguí incluso vender uno de ellos, este asunto todavía me tiene en éxtasis. Aquí tenéis algunos de los dibujillos que hice, incluído el que vendí, 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:

Doctor Who Illustration preview.

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

Hello everybody!

I’m back, I’m an architect, I’m well and have rested more than enough over the past month after presenting my final project. So it is about time I get back to work. I’ve put some Disney Egmont course’s material together for your eyes only. You will notice almost everything is quite unfinished. We work at crazy pace so most of the time I just pray for my stuff to be understood. XDD
Explanations for the exercises are provided in each image’s description.

¡Hola a todos!

He vuelto, estoy licenciada, estoy fantásticamente y me he pasado un mes entero descansando después de presentar el proyecto, así que creo que ya iba siendo hora de volver a las andadas. He aquí material vario de los dos primeros talleres intensivos del curso de cómic Disney sólo para vosotros, mis fieles seguidores (y también para los infieles que me ponéis los cuernos, me encantan los cuernos, muy mori). Observaréis que casi todo tiene un acabado bastante penoso. En los workshops trabajamos a matacaballo y casi todo el tiempo simplemente voy rezando para que se entiendan los dibujos y no me tenga que comer el comentario de “Si me lo tienes que explicar de palabra es que no está bien” que pese a ser merecido, fastidia. XDD
Las explicaciones de los ejercicios se encuentran en la descripción de cada imagen.

Coming soon/ Próximamente:

– Doctor Who fanbook collaboration and trip to MCM London comicon ’13

– Continuing the superheroes battle, #8

Hola everybody, you may have noticed that there have not been new superheroes loading for the battle or any activity at all in the blog. Sorry about that, I should really have gotten back to you all way earlier.

First of all, I do hope you all enjoyed the 2002 post, it felt like magic having that material come back to my e-mail out of the blue and after so many years. The whole Asgard bless Oscar for keeping that crap in some obscure cd.

And secondly, I didn’t quit the superheroe battle, Professor X will have a match for the battle that’ll make him and Santi cry like babies. I’m as well, waiting for some Disney workshop’s material to be handed back to me so I can upload it all in here.

But none of these will happen before I’m graduated. It’s only 21 days now until I face the monster and put an end to it all. So wish me luck and please, bear with me. I will be back.

I love you! ❤

¡Hola gente!

Quizás habréis notado la ausencia de nuevas actualizaciones de la batalla de superhéroes o de alguno de los otros posts que prometí. Perdonadme por esto, tendría que haber escrito este post hace tiempo.

Primero de todo, espero que disfrutarais del post de 2002, para mi fue mágico ver todas esas joyitas volver a mi once años después. Óscar, que el Asgard entero te bendiga por guardar porquería adolescente de tus ahijados en obscuros cd’s. 🙂

Segundo, pero no por ello menos importante, no me he retirado de la batalla de supers. El Profesor X se encontrará con un contrincante que hará llorar tanto a él como a Santi como si fueran niñas de parvulario. Estoy también esperando a que me devuelvan material de los workshops de Disney para subirlo todo junto en un post para enseñaros lo que estamos haciendo.

Pero nada de esto sucederá antes de que me licencie. En 21 días me enfrento a mi monstruo particular y todo acabará, esperemos. Así que, por favor, deseadme suerte y sed pacientes conmigo. ¡Volveré!

Os quiero ❤

Esta semana el workshop de Disney ha interrumpido la constancia de la batalla de superhéroes. Mientras recupero tiempo y encuentro un rato para garabatear algo contra el Profesor X y, de paso, os cuento qué tal fue el workshop, os dejo aquí el portafolio tal y como lo enseñé en la revisión que me metió en el curso de Disney. Casi todo son cosas que ya habréis visto si me seguís con cierta regularidad pero incluso en ese caso encontraréis 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.

Todos tenemos un pasado, es un hecho. Buscando en el baúl de los recuerdos un amigo ha encontrado estas joyas milenarias… es casi arqueología, jajajaja. Están fechados en 2002 y creo que eso los hace del material más antiguo mío que existe. Son geniales, aparte de los topicazos, los interrogantes que se plantean en cuanto a dónde va cada cosa y como se sujetan algunas vestimentas. Creo que me voy a estar riendo una semana. ¡Disfrutad!

We all have a past, it’s pure fact. A friend gave me a huge surprise this evening when he emailed me these ancient jewels he dug up from an old cd. Ar-che-o-lo-gy. They being dated 2002 makes them probably the oldest stuff that has been preserved. They’re so cool, if one is ready to ignore some flaws and stop questioning how do the clothes keep their place. Gawd, I might never stop laughing. Enjoy!

Kerish y Sail. Some characters having something to do with chat roleplaying. Good old times.

Sail

Sail, more roleplaying characters stuff.

Sail and Kerish

Again, Sail and Kerish, even more chat roleplaying stuff.

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!

In previous rounds of the Battle:

#1 Jubilee

#2 The Human Torch

#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!
