Here is some artwork that I did on the two days of the ConComics event. People went by my table and saw me drawing those . Also, I got to chat with many people interested on drawing and comicbooks who asked me a few questions. By the end, it was a fine convention and I made new friends on the way. The first artworks are about Yomba, a character of mine who was created for a mexican comicbook that I made with some friends. I want to work on this story in a near future so I practice a little bit with the character. The other art is a fanart of Ryu from Street Fighter. I used him to show some of the drawing (structure,etc) and coloring process that I use.
This past weekend I got the fortune to share space with many great artists from México on the Tour ConComics convention at my city. Also, many friends of mine went to say hello, so I got time to chat with many of them. Also, I was selling sketches and a bunch of my comicbooks.
I was thrill to see that many people attending to the convention, something I didn’t saw in years.
Also, I meet many people interested on drawing, comicbooks and manga and I got the chance to interact with them!
Thankyou all to went to say hi to me! Anyway, here are the pics:
Here is the finished illustration done for my friend Emilio Mejía and his cool project Pedeliquium: A book series based on a previous comic book created by him and a few cool friends, including me, back in the day. He took all the story background he wrote and translate it into a impressive book. I have to say that the story is very well done and you’ll have many surprises in it. I got the fortune to work on a couple of illustrations for chapter four, the Sorrows’ chamber, where the main villain is getting his dark powers. Very cool chapter, by the way.
About the art, I wanted to portray the main character with a strong attitude in front of the Aj-sheut, the dark spirit who wants to destroy him. You may remember the egyptian spirit concepts from a previous post. This is how he ended. Also, if you see closer, I worked the entire drawing with pencils instead of inks and then applied the colors. It has a different feel, more organic, I think.
