Jeremy Clarkson Sketch

Hey everyone,

Jackie Giant Killer - Quick Sketch

Hey everyone,

I've been very busy working on freelance work (thank God) so I haven't had time to work on this. This is a quick sketch I did this morning. I will post another concept piece and video soon. I might include audio but I'm not sure. I saw this as being a concept piece for a book cover or comic cover. Hope you like it.

Alexis Sanchez

Hey everyone,

This is Alexis Sanchez and he is the new player of FC Barcelona. It is just a quick sketch I did this morning, nothing detailed. I just wanted to experiment a bit with color as opposed to the usual grayscale sketch. I will do one of Fabregas if he ever manages to seal the deal.
Hope you like it.

Making of - A day's worth of inspiration

Hey everyone,

Here is the video of part of last night's image. I changed up my approach a bit by giving the background a light yellowish tone. I then let the program work its magic. I created four more pieces to make up the whole in Photoshop. The song is an Acid Jazz track I had on itunes. Hope you like it and find it useful.

A day's worth of inspiration

Hey everyone,

Here is a little something I worked on tonight. I came across a site called Mapping Praxis(.com) where they have interviews with famous designers. As I was listening to the what they were saying and looking at their work, I was inspired to create a little something before going to bed. I haven't had time to work on personal stuff this week so I decided to make time for this. I went back to alchemy and started listening to some Ministry of Sound tracks. I worked the program's magic and this image of this funky-indian chick popped out. I fleshed it out in three or four sessions and put it all together in Photoshop. I experimented with the opposite color scheme by hitting command + i and I loved the result so I decided to include it. I could see this working as a CD cover or something (food for thought). Hope you like it. I will also be attaching some video of how it was made so stay tuned. Later.

Paz Amor Tolerancia - Winner!

Hey everyone,

Thank God my entry was one of the 10 winners of the DESTAPARTE contest held by Coca Cola and Saul E. Mendez. It was so cool to see my design printed on a large Coke bottle. I was so shocked when I saw that I won. There were loads of truly amazing designs. Just goes to show all the talent in this country. I wish that these sort of contests were more frequent. It was a great opportunity for all sorts of artists to express themselves, get exposure, and win cool stuff. Here are a few photos from the event. I was accompanied by my beautiful wife and we had a great time.

Sketcher - Careless Whisper

Hey eyeryone,
It's been a while since I posted one of these. This is a speedpainting inspired by the cover of Wham's song CARELESS WHISPER by Seether. The song belongs to the band. I did this one a while ago. Been trying iMovie 09 to produce my videos. It's not bad. Still getting used to it.
Hope you like it.

Making of - JGK Concept Scene

Hey everyone,

This is the video of how I made one of the concept scenes I made for Jackie Giant Killer. It is also a preview for a workshop I'm going to give soon. Stay tuned.

Jackie Giant Killer - Face Study

Hey everyone,

Here is a piece I did last night. I did it with a mechanical pencil. I do this sometimes just to not lose practice. I'm glad with how this came out because I didn't use reference (although I wanted to). I was inspired to do this by the concept work of Alex Taini for Heavenly Sword. That's a game with a badass female lead character which is what I am trying to do with JGK. Hope you like it.

Jackie Giant Killer - Concept Scenes 02

Hey everyone,

Here are 4 more concept scenes for Jackie Giant Killer. I have loads of fun making these. They take me a little under an hour to create each. The only way I am able to work this fast is by doing a preliminary warm up sketch. That sketch takes as long as it needs to come out right. Sometimes it's hard to find the idea but once one image works, the others just flow out. Stay tuned for the making of videos. Hope you like them.
