My Bio
Commissions: hi@aegis-strife.net

Mario Sánchez Nevado is a Spain based freelance illustrator and art director who currently runs his own studio, Aégis. The studio is focused on bringing digital art to the covers and packaging of music bands and publishing houses all over the world, and his work has been used by clients of the size of Adobe, Goodby Silverstein, Harlequin, Hachette Education, The MDU, Envato or bands like Unexpect, Empathic, Ashent and many more.

After ten years solo work, Aégis is nowadays a consistent digital art studio with constant commercial projects that are published in between of the personal work of Sánchez Nevado. Nevado is also one of the managers of the international artistic collective Hysterical Minds. He has written several on-line workshops for PSD Tuts about digital imaging production and has been a speaker in some major events about digital art in London, Madrid , the Creative Pro Show in Rome and the Behance Portfolio Review in the Create Now gig held by Adobe. His opus has travelled worldwide, from Spain to the U.S. or La Habana (Cuba) in exhibitions like Creatives Rising, that itinerated among others, from the MoMA and Guggenheim museums in New York. His artistic labor has been recognized by the Master Award on the digital art annual Exposé by two consecutive years, and recently, he was featured in Adobe Photoshop's 25th Anniversary TV spot that was premiered on the 2015 Oscar Academy Awards and gathered a Pencil D&AD Award, Three Cannes Festival Lions and an Emmy nomination.

With a solid style, his conceptual art works on bringing an emotional impact to the viewer, creating tales about universal ideas and feelings easy to relate to. His usage of colors is the key of creating atmospheres that are catchy but ambiguous at the same time, meanwhile a critique to society and politics is usually found between the lines, as well as the roles we develop as emotional human beings in an historical era dominated by superficiality. His striking collection is deeply woven with bold narratives that allow the viewer to create their own vision of what they are seeing. Part magical storyteller, and part sober messenger of society's ills, Mario's works begs for a deeper consideration of the world around us.

Manip Academy #10: Blending Fire
There is an easy, fast way to blend fire into any scene. This won't work in some cases but on average is a nice method to make a basic and realistic blending. Here, we will create a body out of fire. This is our base composition: What you need to do is to place your favorite fire photos (preferably on dark/black backgrounds) on Screen blending mode. At first sight there's something missing, and that is the dark areas of the fire, which are muted due to our blending mode. Create a new layer between the fire layers and your subject and use the Brush tool with medium Opacity and Flow and black color (a dark brown/orange might work as well, dep
