Early concept for the game total war: rome II. After the long siege the city was conquered by Rome and later razed to the ground.
It was an inspiration for the actual battle map and the atmosphere. Didn't have much time for this so done in quick style.

Concept art painting for the game Total War:Rome II. The ship is a roman commanding ship from the late period, joining the battle of Actium.

The design is based on various historical books, reliefs and a bit of my imagination, because we really don't know how the roman ships looked exactly. There aren't many visualizations or paintings of this big ships, which were about 60 meters long with a crew of 600 men. I was really glad to paint such rare thing.


all done in photoshop with wacom intuos. About 2 weeks of work.


P.S:this version is slightly tweaked from the one used on game articles, only recently I got some time to play with the finishing touches and it looks better I think.

First of the series of concepts done for the game Rome 2: Total War. I was trying to make something quicker so decided to stay with this sepia and sketchy style. It was a bit experiment but I liked it at the end.
The scene is a final phase of the siege of carthage, when the Roman legions broke inside the city and fought against the Punic defenders on elephants.

Concept art for the Rome II. Siege battle in the Middle East some two thousand years ago, when the Roman legions are trying to take the Persian city. My most complicated work recently, especially the characters were a pain to do.
All done in Ps + wacom

This is another piece for the Sony Online Entertainment TCG, Legends of Norath, Everquest.

I really enjoy the art for this game, nice to be involved with a game that has the history of a game as old as Everquest.

This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

This is the last piece from Warfare. The Hutts now maintain fleets of warships, shifting their philosophy of economic dominance to a more military one, ever since their Empire was almost destroyed by the Yuuzhan Vong invasions.

Everything in this is completely new and never-before-seen. I was given the honor of designing the various Hutt ships from scratch based on relatively vague descriptions from the novels. You can see 4 classes of warships in here; frigate, destroyer, transport/carrier and battle-cruiser and all of them have the distinctive red sails, which I took inspiration form Jabba's Sail Barge. Admiring his fleet is a Hutt commander and his cronies.

Of the ten pieces I did for Warfare I think this is my favorite one. This scene takes place at the Battle of Kashyyyk during the Second Galactic Civil War where Galactic Alliance forces clash with Confederate forces made up of Bothans, Wookies, Hapans and the Jedi Order. The battle rages around the Anakin Solo, commanded by Jacen Solo (secretly Darth Cadeus), as she bombards the planet surface of Kashyyyk from orbit with her forward long-range turbolasers.

Other things to note in this piece is the never-before-seen Wookie Owool Interceptors making attack runs on the Anakin Solo and the Stealth X fighters flown by Jaina Solo and the Jedis in the foreground. There are also some XJ3/XJ5 X-wings flying about and for those who are wondering about the Mon Calamari Cruiser, yes, it is an MC90 class.

The fortress and shipyard world of Kuat, home of Kuat Drive Yards, the manufacturer of the dreaded Imperial Star Destroyer and its cousins. I believe this is the first ever close-up depiction of what the famous shipyard looks like. It was kinda fun to figure out where the main business of Star Destroyer construction would take place. I also made sure that its protected by a ring of formidable Golan Defense Platforms to thwart any would be invaders.

This is one of my favorite pieces from the Galactic Civil War era. This battle, which took place after the destruction of the first Death Star but before the events of Empire Strikes Back, was an elaborate ambush set by Vader and the Empire to destroy the Alliance leadership along with its fleet. Under overwhelming odds the Rebels would've fled to a designated location where they would regroup, but had they done that they would have found another Imperial fleet waiting for them. The fleet instead dispersed and made random jumps to avoid being completely annihilated. The Alliance almost lost the entire fleet from this battle but enough survived to carry on the fight and eventually make a comeback at the Battle of Endor.

This battle is recounted in the Star War comic "Rebellion: My Brother, My Enemy".

An aerial panoramic view of the famous Battle of Grassy Plains in Ep 1. It was very tedious to paint hordes of Gungans and Battle Droids plus I had to make sense of the troop formations but it all turned out well in the end.

Hi there guys! This is an image done time ago for the "Mythology" APP for IOS.  I hope you like it :)

LET´S WIKIATTACK!

In Greek mythology, the Lernaean Hydra (Greek: Λερναία Ὓδρα) was an ancient serpent-like water monster with reptilian traits. It possessed many heads and for each head cut off it grew two more. It had poisonous breath and blood so virulent that even its tracks were deadly. The Hydra of Lerna was killed by Heracles as the second of his Twelve Labours. Its lair was the lake of Lerna in the Argolid, though archaeology has borne out the myth that the sacred site was older even than the Mycenaean city of Argos since Lerna was the site of the myth of the Danaids. Beneath the waters was an entrance to the Underworld, and the Hydra was its guardian. The Hydra was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna, both of whom were noisome offspring of the earth goddess Gaia.

Eurystheus sent Heracles to slay the Hydra, which Hera had raised just to slay Heracles. Upon reaching the swamp near Lake Lerna, where the Hydra dwelt, Heracles covered his mouth and nose with a cloth to protect himself from the poisonous fumes. He fired flaming arrows into the Hydra's lair, the spring of Amymone, a deep cave that it only came out of to terrorize neighboring villages. He then confronted the Hydra, wielding a harvesting sickle (according to some early vase-paintings), a sword or his famed club. Ruck and Staples have pointed out that the chthonic creature's reaction was botanical: upon cutting off each of its heads he found that two grew back, an expression of the hopelessness of such a struggle for any but the hero. The weakness of the Hydra was that it was invulnerable only if it retained at least one head. Realizing that he could not defeat the Hydra in this way, Heracles called on his nephew Iolaus for help. His nephew then came upon the idea (possibly inspired by Athena) of using a firebrand to scorch the neck stumps after each decapitation. Heracles cut off each head and Iolaus cauterized the open stumps. Seeing that Heracles was winning the struggle, Hera sent a large crab to distract him. He crushed it under his mighty foot. The Hydra's one immortal head was cut off with a golden sword given to him by Athena. Heracles placed the head – still alive and writhing – under a great rock on the sacred way between Lerna and Elaius and dipped his arrows in the Hydra's poisonous blood, and so his second task was complete. The alternative version of this myth is that after cutting off one head he then dipped his sword in it and used its venom to burn each head so it couldn't grow back. Hera, upset that Heracles had slain the beast she raised to kill him, placed it in the dark blue vault of the sky as the constellation Hydra. She then turned the crab into the Constellation Cancer.

Hi there guys! This is a new image I did of the god of thunder. I hope you like it :)

Bamboo/PSCS/7hours/Music: Thor - Therion
www.youtube.com/watch?v=sejA1v…

Let´s wikiattack!

Thor (from Old Norse Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, destruction, fertility, healing, and the protection of mankind. The cognate deity in wider Germanic mythology was known in Old English as Þunor and in Old High German Donar, from a Common Germanic *Þunraz "thunder".

Ultimately stemming from Proto-Indo-European religion, Thor is a prominently mentioned god throughout the recorded history of the Germanic peoples, from the Roman occupation of regions of Germania, to the tribal expansions of the Migration Period, to his extreme popularity during the Viking Age, where, in the face of the process of the Christianization of Scandinavia, emblems of his hammer, Mjöllnir, were worn in defiance and Norse pagans personal names containing the name of the god bear witness to his flourishing popularity. After the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the modern period, Thor continued to be acknowledged in rural folklore throughout Germanic regions. Thor is frequently referenced in place names, the day of the week Thursday ("Thor's day") bears his name, and names stemming from the pagan period containing his own continue to be used today.

In Norse mythology, largely recorded in Iceland from traditional material stemming from Scandinavia, numerous tales and information about Thor is provided. In these sources, Thor bears at least fourteen names, is the husband of the golden-haired goddess Sif. With Sif, Thor fathered the goddess (and possible valkyrie) Þrúðr; with Járnsaxa, he fathered Magni; with a mother whose name is not recorded, he fathered Móði, and he is the stepfather of the god Ullr. The same sources list Thor as the son of the god Odin and the personified earth, Fjörgyn, and by way of Odin, Thor has numerous brothers. Thor has two servants, Þjálfi and Röskva, rides in a chariot led by two goats, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr (that he eats and resurrects), and is ascribed three dwellings (Bilskirnir, Þrúðheimr, and Þrúðvangr). Thor wields the mountain-crushing hammer, Mjöllnir, wears the belt Megingjörð and the iron gloves Járngreipr, and owns the staff Gríðarvölr. Thor's exploits, including his relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr—and their foretold mutual deaths during the events of Ragnarök—are recorded throughout sources for Norse mythology.

Feliz fiestas patrias a todos mis hermanos chilenos, les deseo un muy feliz 18 de septiembre :) Conmemorando esta vez no con un personaje de herencia española, sino con uno de nuestros pueblos originarios. Ojala y en medida que avancemos como pais valoremos de donde venimos para poder comprender hacia donde vamos.


This image is based in one of the heroes of my land: Lautaro. it was done long time ago, when I spent a couple of months in a hospital, recovering of a pancreas failure, it was a dificult time, but painting in the hospital was really fun and distract me a lot from pain :) I hope you like it.

LETS WIKIATTACK

Lautaro (Mapudungun: Lef-Traru "swift hawk") (1534–April 29, 1557) was the young Mapuche military commander in the four-year Arauco War (Araucanian War) in Chile. His people undertook to expel the Spanish colonizers. The army under Lautaro's command inflicted crushing defeats and huge death tolls on Spanish forces despite having far inferior weaponry. As a boy, Lautaro had deliberately allowed himself to be captured by the Spanish in order to learn their secrets, and made no attempt to escape until he felt he had learned enough. In any case, he fled twice, in 1550 and for good in 1552. In 1553 (the year Lautaro turned 19), the Mapuches convened to decide how to respond to the Spanish invasion. The convention decided upon war. The toqui (leader) Caupolicán chose Lautaro as vice toqui because he had served as a page in the Spanish cavalry, and thereby possessed knowledge of how to defeat the mounted conquistadors. Lautaro introduced use of horses to the Mapuche[citation needed] and designed better combat tactics. He organized a large, cohesive army—a military formation unfamiliar to the Mapuche.

After the second rout at Concepción, Lautaro desired to attack Santiago. He found scant support for this plan from his troops, who soon dwindled to only 600, but he carried on. In October 1556 his northward march reached the Mataquito River, where he established a fortified camp at Peteroa. In the Battle of Peteroa he repulsed attacking Spanish forces under the command of Diego Cano, and later held off the larger force commanded by Pedro de Villagra. Being advised that still more Spaniards were approaching, Lautaro retreated towards the Maule River. With the Spaniards in hot pursuit he was forced to retire beyond the Itata River. From there he launched another campaign towards Santiago when Villagra's army passed him by on the way to the save the remaining Spanish settlements in Araucanía. Lautaro had chosen to give Villagra's force the slip and head for the city to attack it.Despite the Mapuches' stealth, the city's leaders learned of the advance and sent a small expedition to thwart it, buying time for word to be sent to Villagra to return to the city from the south. The Spanish forces met in the field, and from a member of the local ethnos, the Picunche, they learned the disposition of Lautaro's camp. At dawn, on April 29, 1557 the conquistadors launched a surprise attack from the hills of Caune, obtaining a decisive victory in the Battle of Mataquito in which Lautaro was killed early in the fighting. After the defeat of his army, his head was cut off and displayed in the plaza of Santiago. He was close to final victory when he was killed in battle at around 23 years of age.

This will be the front cover to "Silbhe's journey" (El viaje de Silbhe), the upcoming novel from spanish writer Miguel Molines, that will hit the shelves very soon.

Lot of fun with this piece as Miguel gave me some freedom to design Silbhe´s outfit so I could experiment with the materials a bit. 
I´ve uploaded the whole illustration and the titles here, for whom may be interested.

Huge Venetian galeasse San Lorenzo. Attacking the turkish fleet in Battle of Lepanto 1571. Was the biggest battle of oarvessels, about 200 galleys on each side . Design of the ship based on old painting and some engravings. I hope its a realistic reconstruction. This was my first picture showing some ship, is about 2 years old.

England, year 1607, the 3 ships are preparing for a voyage that resulted in the founding of the first permanent English settlement in North America. So generally this is a first step towards a colony which became the United States.
The Biggest one was called Susan Constant. My imagination was showing me some cold peacefull mornig in big port, so I paint it like that. I like the seagulls a lot so there are some:)

Just photoshop and intous tablet. For the ships I have a simple 3d model for basic perspective. The whole picture was a kind of slow process but I enjoyed it.

I like it maybe more than my last works, but dont know if its really better. Any commnets are welcome.

A piece I did back in 2012 for Medieval Warfare Magazine.

I'm not steeped in German Medieval history but I believe Worringen was one of many battles fought amongst Germans and men of the "Low Countries" within the Holy Roman Empire. The politics and fragmented nature of the empire seem to land itself quite frequently to internal conflicts between its autonomous rulers. This particular battle is between the Duke of Brabant (left) and the Count of Luxembourg (right) over the possession of the Duchy of Limburg.

More info on the battle here >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_o…

If any of you are interested you can check out the magazine here. Its a very interesting magazine if you're in to medieval history. >> [link]

THis was a doodle of an idea I had. i wanted to make a kind of steampunky robot guy with a spear, like a steampunk dragoon or some such.
I was mostly trying to get my idea onto canvas so i could revisit it later.
So now I am doing a different more complex painting featuring a version of this guy where I addressed a lot of the issues I had with it.
