Moonskin

Drawing passionates me as much as listening to music, it is one of the main influences on my work, music is the most abstract of  arts, it takes me to different landscapes, real and surreal, future and past, takes me to the deepest of my mind were i can explore ideas, feelings, memories and forms and i try to translate that, as lines on a white paper were i have absolute freedom.

for some time i´ve been thinking in making a series of illustrations based or inspired by songs, i´ve choosen the album “Passage” by swiss band Samael, this is one of my favorite albums, it has a unique and great sound it´s an amalgamation of symphonic black metal and industrial music and beautiful lyrics that explores spiritual growth and knowledge, love, our link with the universe and all living beings, among other themes.

moonskin sketchI don´t have enough free time for working in this illustrations so i started with one, i choosed Moonskin because the lyrics are beautiful and powerful, my illustration is just a tribute to the song, my personal interpretation of what i imagined when i started drawing and listened to the song.

moonskin s5Passage is a very interesting metal album, heavy, rhythmic and beautiful, there is also a piano version of the album were you can listen  clearly to the complex melodies. Hope you like this drawing and also try to listen to the album probably you´ll find it interesting too, anyway life is about experimenting and try new things, share and enjoy.

Svart Draken

Título

The idea for this illustration has been around my head since 1994, i made the first sketch in 1995 and the forgot about it, until 2010, when i reworked the idea.

Svart Drake is the main combat mecha (Kriegskellet) of the Koraz Empire, designed to engage in combat with 2 or 3 enemy mechas simultaneously, for that reason it was made with four arms, so it can handle twice the weaponry compared to normal mechas, it has two fixed rapid fire plasma cannons in the main arms, and two smaller arms with manipulators to handle a variety of  weapons, like machine guns and rifles.

The cannons and the  powerful radar are optimized to take down enemies at large distances and the Svart drake is agile and fast to figth at short range, it is equipped with experimental techonologies like the thermo-chromatic skin covering the armor, that changes of colour automatically to camouflage itself with the surroundings.

Captura de pantalla 2015-09-29 a las 21.39.53The Svart Drake has many limitations too, it is not very resistant because the armor was sacrificed in order to make it fast, agile and able to carry many weapons. Another interesting feature is that a small flying drone can be attached to the back of the mecha, the drone can fly autonomously to search for enemies and send the information to the Svart Draken, so it can attack beyond visual range.

Piramides

Piramide del solTeotihuacánIMG_8987

 

Teotihuacán “The place where men became gods” is a name given to it by the Nahuatl speaking Aztecs when they discovered the ruins centuries after the city fell. Teotihuacan was a pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city located near the Valley of Mexico, known today as the site of many of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramids, Teotihuacan is also anthropologically significant for its complex, multi-family residential compounds; the Avenue of the Dead; and the small portion of its beautiful murals that have been exceptionally well-preserved.

Monino, Museo de la fuerza aérea Rusa

One of my dreams was to visit the Monino Air Force museum, it wasn´t easy but was really cool to see all those clasic aircraft, in the museum one can see all the models of the Soviet and Russian Air Force, it was really inspiring to watch all those flying machines, a great experience for any aircraft enthusiats.

Estas algunas fotos que tomé en mi visita a Monino, el museo más grande de aviación en Rusia, es un lugar muy interesante porque se pueden ver aviones desde los inicios de la aviación soviética hasta los más actuales cazas rusos, además de interesantes prototipos como el Yak-141 Freestyle y el Yak 36 Freehand , transportes como el An-22 Antei, aviones que dieron pie al desarrollo de los actuales aviones de combate.

Battle armor Иулюс Mk. II

Reworked version of Иулюс Mk. II battle armor, i made this illustration some months ago for a calendar, some friends, designers and illustrators asked me to join to a collective, we´ve been drawing a lot and they decided to make a calendar so this is my work for the month of july, below you can see the sketches and details for the helmet and the process, all was painted in photoshop with normal brushes, i added some textures for detail, this has been a good practice and i learned a few things while making this illustration, the gun was drawn in a vector program and all textures and colour added in the final illustration.
