Черный призрак (Black Ghost), Is part of a long time personal project, i have made many sketches of different mecha that i´ve been drawing for years but haven´t finished, now that i have been practicing more and improved a little in digital painting i will be working on other models and slowly will be posting more of these machines and parts of the story.
I made this original mecha design inspired by all the cool japanese robots from animation and videogames that i have seen since i remember, speacially, Macross, The five star stories and Gundam.
Kriegskellet Черный призрак is the main assault mecha used by Gaian Confederation to combat the remnants of the once almighty Koraz Empire, it was made with long and strong arms capable to handle many different types of weapons.

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.
This is an old drawing, pencil sketch, colour added in photoshop.
Cansada y fastidiada de tanto trabajar, realizando conjuros y hechizos, esta pequeña bruja emprende un viaje para conocer mejor el extenso mundo en el que vive, entonces un día toma su escoba y sale volando desde su casa sin rumbo fijo, pero tras empezar la jornada se detiene en la luna, para contemplar el paisaje y sin darse cuenta se queda profundamente dormida.
Hice esta ilustración hace algunos años, primero hice varios dibujos del personaje a lápiz y después al elegir el definitivo añadí color en photoshop.
I´ve been working on a short sci-fi story about a scientist that is trapped in a ship that is lost adrift in the outer space and the ship is infested with mechanical insects of unknown origin, as the ship travels the robotic insects slowly eat the ship and the scientist desperately looks for a way to survive.
So far i have made several illustrations in different moments, actually i started with one drawing and then the idea started to grow and take form, when i began to write i made some other sketches, here you can see some of them.
“Once upon time there was a pretty fly, he had a pretty wife, this pretty fly but one day she flew away, flew away. She had two pretty children but one night these two pretty children flew away, flew away into the sky, into the……….grave” words by Mr. Dr. from Incubus fragment.
She falls in a deep slumber, in a far far away spot in the realm of Hypnos,
suddenly her home turns into a palace with a high crystal dome and rich
ornaments on the walls…
Her long hair falls from the bed growing deep into the dream transforming into the roots of gigantic trees that form a forest,
then her hair becomes green almost blue,
this colour shines surrounding the forest,
from above the forest she can see a path amidst the trees,
a long, long path that disappears as far as the eye can see,
and then she sees him approaching,
walking the lonely path just beneath her,
she feels happy because for a long time she has waited for him to arrive but fears that he will only exist as long as her dream continues…
