Seminario Ilustracion







Wah... Just handed in the work from this class, seminario de ilustracion. We had to do all these portraits with various styles, all 10x7cm in size, and with various styles or techniques. So, we had to choose 4 musicians, two of each sex and one young and one old each. I picked Willie Nelson, Jack White, Dolly Parton and Brody Dalle. The styles we had to try and practise were these:
Lines Only
Shadows
Van Gogh
Childish / Left hand
German expressionism
Dubuffet
Textures
Falso grabado / like prints, but with guache and ink
Bodypaint and tattoo
Caricature (very simple shapes)
and the last 4 (8 in my case) with whatever technique each one preferred. Mine being stencils, one with dots, one with crosshatching, one with watercolours and one with pastels.

so, that`s it! Almost time for vacations... can't wait!

Budapest


Just finished a workshop in school about making an illustration for a competition held by Vueling (the airline). They had 5 cities to be illustrated for their in-flight magazine, and I was appointed with Budapest. The prize is pretty juicy... A flight for two to any destination of Vueling... So, I hope I'll win!

Connection

Had to make a drawing of what the world of today is to me (for semiotics class). I decided I wanted to portray the connection between places far away from each other, caused by technology.
It hit me the other day when I was talking to my grandma in Iceland through Skype, and had recently designed a poster for my mom who is also in Iceland, that now a days when you move to a different country, you don't really go away. It's like having one foot in one country and the other foot in another one. If I would've moved to Spain 20 years ago I wouldn't have been able to read the icelandic newspaper, keep up with every single person I know there, see photos from every single party, talk to them and see them while I do so, or at least if I'd wanted to read the icelandic newspaper I'd had to wait a few days for it to arrive in the mail. But bottom line; the world is growing smaller and smaller, it doesn't matter how far away you are, you're never really that far away.

La asombrosa historia de Mr. Snow

An illustration made for the poster of my friend Antonio's next show, "The amazing story of Mr.Snow". This was made in photoshop from scratch. The I drew the letters by hand, and the snow, and the old man (Mr.Snow). As for Antonio's face I had a webcam photo as a reference, and the city in the background is from stock.

The Jones Family

Here we have my final assignment from Caracterización de personajes (character design, I guess). We were supposed to make a family with a mom, dad, grandma, a chinese adopted 5 or 6 years old girl, and a 10 years old prankster kid. Also, the family was supposed to be nice, so no spookyness or derrangement or anything... shame

Muscles

That's how I study for an art history exam..
I was watching videos from David Finch about drawing the dynamic figure, and after that I did this sketch. The muscles are probably not anatomically correct, since I'm not used to drawing such exaggerated muscles, and I didn't draw with any reference, just from memory of what I saw in Finch's videos.

Alice Cooper paper doll


Illustrations for a group project in a "pop-music" class we're taking. We decided to do Glam Metal, and make paper dolls with three famous people from Glam Metal (Alice Cooper, Nikki Sixx and Dee Snider). We gave each of them two outfits; one regular glam outfit, and one superhero outfit (as we found a common theme of many glam songs to be about somehow saving young people from the oppression of teachers and parents, to be themselves and do what they want.. Mostly inspired by Twisted Sister's videos for We're Not Gonna Take It, and I Wanna Rock)
I'll be uploading my illustration of Dee Snider soon, gotta finish his superhero outfit.

RunningMan

Well, I did this running cycle for an animation class, but we weren't tought how to use any programs in class, so I had to experiment on my own. Toon Boom Studio 4.5 was my weapon of choice, and with tutorials in youtube I was able to pull something off.
