It's been a while since I post anything here, so I might as well start doing it again, or at least try to post more often. This is a quick digital painting I did after watching the new remake of the Point Break film and I thought that the old 90's one had more charm to it. For some reason using the ex-presidents masks was a nice touch to the story and an outstanding imagery.

Light and Color at the Sierra Nevada Pastel Painting Workshop

These are some of my pastel plein air paintings I did during my trip to the Sierra Nevada, I love going to this workshop,  It has become like a tradition of some sort. A very nice getaway, you get to experience nature and paint all day long, plus you get to learn so much stuff, what else do you need? This workshop is taught by the master of pastel plein air paintings himself, Mr. Bill Cone. Such an amazing trip with some wonderful folks that I am lucky enough to call my friends.

Feliz Dia del NiƱo

Back in my home country, Mexico, we celebrate children's day on April 30, so I made this very quick and loose illustration to congratulate all my family and friends who are still kids at heart.

My Little Cousin's Belated Birthday Card

Yesterday I failed miserably to wish my little cousin a happy birthday, so I wanted to redeem myself by making her a quick sketch of herself, she loves when I draw stuff, so here it is. I hope she likes it and forgives me.

Environment and Backgrounds

So after having my characters figured out, I then move on to start thinking, planning and designing the world in which the characters that I created would inhabit. I started out sketching my ideas in pencil, very rough and after that I started making small thumbnail roughs to understand, get the basic composition and get the placement of the objects in it, as well as many options to choose from and decide the one that best reads and makes the audience interested in. I will refine the design and work on the stylization when i blow the drawing up and ink it.  After looking at these small rough thumbnails #3 is the one I was looking for.
