Closed for holidays

Ok, this is it until I finish my holidays. I'll try to draw and everything, but no Internet for a while :)
Meanwhile, my newest Pentel&Moleskine watercolors
See ya back in september!!

Asssucaaaar!




I went to work to La Habana some years ago and the experience was ... complicated. Yet, I enjoyed the trip, met amazing people and had a wonderful time as a whole. I had some spare moments to draw, too :)

Brienne of Tarth


I fear I did not draw her as ugly as she is supposed to be, but hey, I like the poor thing!

A chunk of land in ... Singapore


This is Pulau Ubin, a tiny island off the Singapore coast that can be accessed via ferry. Nice, cozy place, with a load of lazy lizards and good coconut milk. Beaches are just okay, though :)

The right tools ...

Some time ago, a friend recommended to use Pentel Aquash in my travelling books. The idea seemed to be logical: I like watercolors and I like to draw when I travel. It was not that easy to get one of these brushes, but I finally got it some days ago ...

... along with a Moleskine for watercolors, something whose existence I totally ignored :)


Yesterday and the day before, I tried a couple of landscapes mixing both and ... voila!

Theon Greyjoy

On with a Song of Fire and Ice


(Male) heir to the house of Greyjoy and a guy I disliked from the very first book

I'd rather have two: Winterfell and Riverun

Wintefell, as I promised, and Riverun, just because I am at THAT point in book 3 :)





These are 5 minutes sketches, but somehow I think I get these fast things better than the rest.

And on with pencil quick sketches: Harrenhal

This is a snap at old, haunted castle of Harrenhal, from Song of Fire and Ice. I finished yesterday A clash of Kings and I've just started A storm of Swords. Next sketch will be Winterfell from before ... what happens in book two (no spoilers here :P)

Asha Greyjoy and my dabblings with colors

I don't know exactly why, but colors and I do not get along :(
This is a second try to draw Asha Greyjoy, from A song of Fire and Ice, in digital colors. In my first one, I used just plain tones and got no volumes. I've tried to improve that in this one, but still, I'm not totally in with the effect ..



Luckily, I still got the hang on quick sketching :)

Insisting on NY

These are a couple of sketches that I did in watercolors after my visit to NYC. I'm not particularly fond of these, but I thought I might share them anyway, now that we are in NYC post day.




Plus this one I copied from the Vertical New York photo book, a cool one if I may tell :)

The city that never sleeps

Some sketches from my NY travel book:

The Metropolitan! Cool place to spend a day ... or more :)




Gughenheim, all included in the City Pass. I fancy myself better Natural Science Museum, but, hey, it is a must





And, of course, Brooklyn Bridge ... on July 4th. Superb fireworks, but long, long waiting and bad mannered neighbours that kept pushing all the time :(

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Here is the first page of a Harry Potter comic I did back when films had not been released, so I pretty much designed every character. This corresponds to my fav book, the third, specifically to Harry's first visit to Honeydukes using the Marauders map. posted earlier a couple of colored pages, though I made a lot more later that did not make it further than pencil (a good idea, since I'm not that good at computer coloring :P). Might post them here, though :) Here are the pencil versions of those pages plus a new one.



Yoruichi Neko-chan

A shot at the cat-version of Yoruichi, which, indeed, looks exactly like my mom's black cat, named after her :)

Asha Greyjoy

On with a Song of Ice and Fire and I've got a new favorite character: Asha Greyjoy. Sure, she's only been there for a chapter at the point I've reached so far, but I strongly dislike her brother, so having her mocking him so much just made my day :D


Ironborn, he knew at a glance; lean and long-legged, with black hair cut short, wind-chafed skin, strong sure hands, a dirk at her belt




"And here's my sweet suckling babe"

(Weird) adventures in Iceland

Believe it or not, this actually happened!





And here's proof of it!





Go, go black sheep (but not into the fence!!)

Green, green Iceland

Three spots for the adventurer and also for freaky fandom :)

This is the place where the High Council used to meet and where continents divide





The black waterfall, one of the most impressive ones in Iceland. It looks like the place where witches lived in the (unremarkable) Stardust movie! :)





And this is Snaefell mountail, where the SnaefellJokull is. Most of you might remember it as the entrance to the centre of earth in Verne's famous book.
