Exciting times

0 min read
Hello dear artsy friends, I was asked by an American writer to produce 16 pencil illustration (B&W) for her fantasy novell, landscapes all. Needless to say I am very excited about this! :happybounce: At the moment we are in the beginning stages of the project, having four concepts approved and the first drawing almost finished. It is great to return to pencil work (although I miss my colour work right now ;) ). I simply do not have the time next to some other freelance design jobs, a full time day job and a family. Hope I can squeeze in some speedies every once in a while for your and my entertainment. Anyway, as soon as I have a green lig

Norman invasion

0 min read
So, I've conjured up this image of William the Conqueror disembarking his troops on the beaches of England on the 28th of September 1066 AD. Now doing some research into the proper outfitting of the troops under the Duke of Normandy at the time of his invasion. Hoping to find the right heraldry for the banners. At least I know he himself used the golden lions on a scarlet field. In my mind it looks pretty epic, hope I can transfer it to pixels :D Tips are most welcome ;) I'm scouring my book on the Bayeux tapestry. It gives all sorts of clues on the weapons and armour. Awesome! :happybounce:

Hi folks, Be leaving on a short trip to the US for a family visit (7-14 June). A highschool graduation and a wedding. :dance: :happybounce: Means no paintings the coming week and a half. I'll bring my sketchbook so I hope I'll have something to share with you once I get back. Take care, Wouter

Thanks For Watching😎

With your permission I take the opportunity to present myself and make a proposal: I´m Xurxo Avila, a spanish actor, director, writer and producer. I have a horror script that I have not been able to shoot and I was thinking of turning it into a graphic novel for IMAGE COMICS -WE ALL WORK FOR MONEY- with the collaboration of one of my best friends, the USA`s editor and colorist JOSÉ VILLARRUBIA. I have seen your drawings and would you like to draw the story? I really like your style very much, I think it would go very well to the story and I think we could create a unique and fascinating horror story. I hope I didn't bother you with the proposal. The idea is to draw 6 scenes from the script (he told me that it is the usual number when you send it to any American comic book publisher), send them along with the same script and a lot of things that I have more (you can see some of them on my page, in the folder entitled: "CINEMA" : art concepts, posters,...) to the publisher and see if they like it and get us to work. If you want I pass the script to you, you read it, and you tell me. Greetings.
