Well, I'm aware about the problems regarding my last post, and that you're waiting for an answer from me, and here it is.

First of all I want to say that it was not my intention to harm anyone. I never denied to be working with references, is something most artists do. Whenever I can I work with my own references, but that's not always possible and I have to search through internet for inspiration. Artists ways are not always easy, and we need inspiration too. I usually work with tons of references, and most of the times I don't even know the actual source. But I'm more than willing to give credit where credit is due, copyright is important. So my apologies in this case, I never intended to harm.

I also want to make clear that although I use references, I never do paint-overs or photomanipulation. I'm a old school artist, and I always paint everything from scratch and spend hours and hours working on it. If the final work is too similar to the source of inspiration, then I apologize. I will try to work better with my references in the future, since this is a problem, and try to never be too similar to any reference.

So, that said, I will do any necessary changes on the art to solve this problem. And I will be more careful with my references from now on.

Some people asked me what would I feel if somebody copy my work. That happened a lot of times before and will happen in the future. Sometimes I find artworks too similar to my own ones and there was not a word about my work being an inspiration for that. And I didn't do anything, I didn't accusse anybody. Because is not a big deal for me. Art needs inspiration and everything has a source. I think that if the final artwork has something different and new from the source of inspiration, that's ok. Taking references and steal are two very different things. Perhaps is just my point of view, sorry if you think I'm wrong.

I will not enter any discussion, it's all a matter of opinion and everybody is free to have their own. I will just continue with my work and do my best to improve. And once again, sorry to the people that feel offended about this matter.

News & Updates

Hi all :dance:

While you wait for the release of the fourth and last volume of Forgotten series, that is still on going, I offer you a new artbook so the waiting would not be so hard =).

Nocturna is a one volume artbook of 96 pages, that show old and new artworks, a lot of them never published before, with themes of fantasy, gothic, steampunk and more. Our hostess through the pages will be the triad or triple goddess, a common figure reference in several mythologies all over the world. She will guide us in a story through time, showing her three faces as the spinner of life. The book will also contain close-ups of artworks, showing every detail of the images.

Nocturna artbook

Nocturna will be published in Spain on june 2011. I'm still working on the possible translation and publication in other countries. I hope it will be available in other languages soon, wish me luck =).

In Spain I will have some signing sessions at the release of the book, on the Book Fair of Madrid. I will also be present there at the presentation of Donde los árboles cantan, a new book by Laura Gallego which cover I had been working on lately.

In other hand, Forgotten 4 is still on a very early stage. There's a lot of work to do, since this last book will have more pages and more complex artworks. I will keep you updated on the process.

And to celebrate this new artbook, I will upload a new image right now ;). Hopefully, I will can update more shortly.

Thanks again for your comments and support, and for all the patience you have with my very late answers :aww:

New products like postcards, mugs, magnets and such, will be available at the store in a few weeks.

Hugs!! :glomp:

Hello everybody :dance:

I hope you're having good holidays and enjoying the free time with your friends and family :). Wish you the best for 2011, health, happiness and a lot of inspiration :heart:

And thank you very much for your DA birthday wishes :hug:. I swear I didn't know it was my DA birthday until you said so :D :D

Some of you know that I created a new poll a few days ago asking if you would like other products with my art for sale in DA (if you didn't saw it, you can still vote on the poll below ;)). So, following your chooses and opinions, there will be some new products soon in the store.

I will make postcards available, and also calendars for 2012, since it's too late to make them for 2011 :aww:. I will also make available a few mugs, magnets and mouse pads. I would like to know which artworks are your favourite ones for this kind of products. I can make available any work contained in this folder (the other ones can't be made available for copyright or publishing reasons or just because they're too old to even think about that :roll:).

And, yes, there will be more paintings soon :). Since too many of you asked for them, I will post a new painting on the first week of the year ;).

2011 is going to be a year full of news and new works, and hopefully, more updates :).

So, enjoy the party and the holidays, and see you again next year!!

Hugs!! :glomp:

News & Updates

Due to some health issues, I will have to cancel my visit to some of the conventions scheluded for the next weeks. I'm very sorry that this happened just now, but although I tried to find alternate solutions, none of them was good enough.

The reason for this cancellation is that I will not be able to do any signing sesions, due to a strong wrist sprain in my rigth hand that doesn't let me use it at all. I really hope to be better in a few weeks and be able to assist to other events and continue my work in the projects and commissions that are waiting for me.

I want to apologize for this problem to my readers and the organizations of the conventions; to the people that went to Imagina Málaga and found out that I had to cancel my signing sessions (I hope I will can compensate you in another occassion); to the people that were waiting to meet me in Frankfurt, since I will cannot go there now (hope we can meet next year instead) and sorry if I cannot be present in any other event for this same reason.

Thanks a lot for your support and patience. I hope to be ok again very soon.

Hugs!! :hug:

Hi people :)

First, let me say you happy new year, since I couldn't before :aww:. My computer decided to crush on christmas, so I have been without internet for a long while. Now I'm trying to update the galleries and websites, answer all the messages and mails that I have waiting, and trying to show the several news that I have on my desk. But I have too many work and it's proving difficult. So I have to ask you for a little more patient with me, I'm trying my best ^__^.

As most of you already know, I'm currently working on the third volume of Forgotten, and that's the reason why I'm so busy lately. The book is at 75% done, so I hope to finish it soon. There will be more updates when the work is finished :).

News

Several of my artworks have been selected to be part of the very known artbooks Spectrum 16 (Underwood books) and Exotique 5 (Ballistic Publishing). They're already for sale at stores, if you want to pick them up.

The big news this month is that Forgotten will be published in France, under Mylady Graphics, the new comic label of Éditions Bragelonne. The first volume, under the name Forgotten 1: Le Royaume Sans Nom will be available in stores next 12th of february.

News & Updates

Hi there :)

I'm back from Scotland. Everything is as lovely as my last visit, as expected :aww:. Hope to be back early next year, as soon as I have finished Forgotten 3 (that, by the way, is going as planned).

I had a lot of updates waiting for me to be able to post them, so here you have a good amount of news :).

Once again, for all of you who want to know about my works, art in process, events in which I will be present, publications and other issues, I highly recommend you to visit my Blog. I will keep it updated a lot more than this blog in DA, and you can find everything there :).

News

I will began presenting to you two new Forgotten Calendars for 2010. Published by Heye Verlag, they're already available in stores and online. The big calendar (shown below) contains 12 artworks from Forgotten 1, Forgotten 2 and other projects, shown at high quality at the big size of 50x70 cm.

Calendar 2010 Big size

There's also a small calendar with the same 12 artworks (shown below) at the size of 29.5x30.5 cm. You can find here info and sample interior pages showing all the artworks contained in the calendars. The artworks Deep in the Underworld and The Song of Lorelei that you can see on my DA gallery are published in this calendars.

Calendar 2010 Small size

In other hand, I have two upcoming events this month, that will be the last ones of this year. The first of them is the V International Comic Convention of Málaga (Spain), also known as Imagina Málaga. I will be there as a guest from 22 to 24 of october. There will be signing sessions (check there for timetables), an exhibition of my works and a talk-meeting with the author.

I will also receive there the Best Author Award for Forgotten 2 :D. But it's also a very special event for me because I had the opportunity to do the poster of the convention this year, in collaboration with the great author and good friend Juanjo RYP (if you don't know his work, I highly recommend you to check it out). I posted the result of this collab on the DA gallery so you can look at it :). More info about the convention here.

The other event is the I Gothic Week of Madrid (Spain), and I will be there from 25 to 27 of october, presenting an exhibition of gothic illustration with another great artist and friend, Javier Trujillo. The exhibition will show some of our works in this style and we will also have a talk about gothic and neodark illustration on sunday 25. More info here.

More news on the way, see you soon ;).

Hi there :)

I know, I know, I completely dissapeared lately. Sorry, I know I have a lot of messages to answer, a lot of comments to check,... but I don't have time anymore to be around as I would like. I'm currently working hard on the third volume of Forgotten, and if everything goes as planned it will be finished on early 2010. Till then, I will be very busy working, so I will not be around a lot. I will keep uploading paintings from time to time (I have a lot of artworks on my computer waiting to be uploaded ;)), but I'm afraid I will not can answer most of your messages. So if you have something very important to tell me, please send me a note.

I have been on holidays last month of august (the first 10 free days I had in more than 10 months!!! :yawn: ) and I went to London. A great experience, far better than I though :). You can expect some photographs of my travel in the next weeks. I'm planning to go again to Scotland at the end of the month too, I miss my Scotland so much :aww:.

For all of you who want to know about my works, art in process, events in which I will be present, publications and other issues, I highly recommend you to visit my Blog. I will keep it updated a lot more than this blog in DA, and you can find everything there :).

This is the month of the books :reading:. I wanna show you two books in which I collaborated this year.

The first is the novel "Ecos de Azurëa vol. 1: El cementerio de torres" (could be translated as "Azurëa Echos vol. 1: The Towers' Cemetery"), a fantasy book written by Manuel F. Bueno and published in Spain by Mundos Epicos Editorial. I was commissioned to paint the artwork for the cover, that you can see below. The book is the first of a colecction with a very interesting story about unusual heroes, fantasy beings and mystical places. It's only in spanish for the moment.

And the second is the book "La mujer en la sombra: lo femenino en el cine fantástico y de terror" (could be translated as "The woman in the shadow: the paper of the woman in fantastic and horror cinema"), and is one of the books published this year by the X International Week of Fantastic and Horror Cinema of Estepona (Málaga - Spain), a festival of cinema that will take place from 7 to 12 of september 2009. For this book I did the cover art (that I uploaded to the gallery, you can check it here), all the design of the covering -check here- and I also wrote an horror short story titled "The cuckoo clock". The book is only in spanish.

La mujer en la sombra

During the Festival there will be two presentations of the book in which I will be present. There will be free copies of the book for the people at the presentations:
- 11th september 2009 - 20:30 h. Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Estepona.
- 12th september 2009 - 12:30 h. Fórum Fnac La Cañada.


There are more news on the way, but I'm not gonna tell yet ;).

... and a little late one, I must say :XD:

This year promises to be very intense :). I was planning on doing a new tutorial to post here, but couldn't at the end for lack of time. I will try again in the future.


News

I don't know if all of you checked the box on the left side called "Myth & Dreams" exhibition :). It's a little announcement for a big itinerant exhibition that it's taking place in Spain. I show there more than 40 artworks, tutorials, traditional work and originals and material. I will put photos on my Blog so all of you can see a little of the exhibition :). For the moment, it was a great success, surpasing all expectations, so thanks a lot to everyone that have been there :worship:.

Since I couldn't update before, there's a lot of things to talk about. First, my work was published on ImagineFX magazine #39, as artist of the month in Reader FXPosé. Also there's an interview and several images published on the new magazine Amazing Events #2 by Fantasyana Publishing; the pdf file of the magazine is for sale here.

There's also some interviews online, both in english and spanish, that you can check on my Blog.

And a new maxi poster for sale!! It's already available on Pyramid Posters. You can buy it here. The poster, Scarlett & Ravens is the one you can see below :).

I'm back from my summer holidays (I have some photos to share with you on scraps) and, after several weeks of hard work, finally I can find time to update the galleries and be around a little. In a few days I will have to work hard again, but well...

It was a great surprise for me to find that I got a DD on Amber. Thank you very much to Demi-Vamp for suggest it and to cosmosue for feauture it. Love you a lot! :glomp:


News

I will be part of the project King Kong solidario, a beneficent event in Spain to pay tribute to King Kong's 75th anniversary, organized by Scifiworld. For this event I did an artwork (you can see it on the gallery) that will be part of an exhibition, with the art of several great artists of illustration, comic and film, in the International Film Festival of Sitges (Spain), from 2nd to 12th of October. They will publish a catalogue of the exhibition that will be for sale during the Festival and on book stores, and later the artwork (signed) will be available for sale on Ebay. All the money earned both on the catalogue and the artwork will go to the organization Medecins Sans Frontieres. If you want to know more about this event, you can check their website. I will keep you informed about the sale of the signed artwork.

Also, since this month of september, there will be two more puzzles of my works for sale. They are published by Heye Verlag and are available on stores and online shops. You can see below the images selected this time: the first belongs to Forgotten, and the second to Forgotten 2. Both of them have 1000 pieces and the size is 48x68 cm (19x27 in).
