Commissioned artwork for the cover of the book "La mujer en la sombra" (translated as "The woman in the shadow") for the X International Festival of Fantastic and Horror Cinema of Estepona (Spain). Info about the book here: [link]

Done in Photoshop, don't know how many hours since I was working on other projects at the same time :). Close-ups here: [link]

Edit: Wow, what a surprise to find this was selected as DD :). Thanks so very much to ~ihaque for suggest it and to ^JunkbyJen for feature it!! And thanks to all of you for your support, you always make me want to keep working ;)

No conocía tu trabajo, pero hace unos días ví una de tus ilustraciones desde un escaparate de una librería usada en un puzzle y me puse a buscar por la web. Me declaro como una reciente admiradora de tus obras Love  y confieso que me encantaría llegar a ese nivel algún día.

Your paintings are amazing. This picture has great Edgar Allan Poe style. I read on your profil that he is one of your favorite writhers. I can understand why...^^
