In the meantime


For the sakes of variety, here comes an illustration I did some time ago (-the graphic novel adventure to be continued very soon!-). I had been working on a Cintiq for a while back then and I was discovering how amazing this tablet can be. I couldn't recommend it more. Nowadays any tool that lets you work fast, correct fast and edit fast is definitely more than welcome!

Saskia said...

Thank you so much for your comments.

I rarely comment here, but I´m looking very often and learn a lot from your work ( tryin´to steal da skiiillz). =)
I also really loved that little comic from the last postings, the loose lines, the panel composition...

Ooooh i like! Such a nice composition and fluent lines! Hope it becomes a book one day.

Zeljko said...

Love the value/contrast and composition too:)

Magnífica ilustración como magnífica la graphic novel con la que nos obsequias! Y respecto a la Cintiq, es sin duda el arma definitiva!

Saludos!

El que em fa por de la cintiq és que desde que la utilitzo que no he tornat a treballar sobre paper, no he tornat a sentir la olor del carbó, el soroll del traç quan faig ombres amb el llapis inclinat a 20º,
Marcos:-ens ha de preocupar la digitalització del'experiència artistica?

la peça postejada és increíble. Les silouettes de les palmeres m'hipnotitzen.....

-Thanks Anthony!

-Gracias Pardi, en las escenas nocturnas siempre me ha interesado hasta que punto se puede dejar claro que es de noche sin perder los detalles esenciales de la imagen

-Thanks Jason!

-Thanks Saskia. The graphic novel will continue soon by the way ...it's far from over !:))

-Thanks Jorn, let's see :)

-Thanks Zeljko

-Gracias Teresa! y estoy de acuerdo con lo del Cintiq

-Hola Ernest, i gracies per la teva visita. Tens rao amb el que dius, lo que trobo es que senzillament son eines diferentes, es com pasar del llapiç al rotul.lador, o del rotul.lador al pinzell. El Cintiq el trobo increiblement efectiu pels temps que corren (mai mes ben dit lo que que 'corren':)), pero lo demes les tecniques mes tradicionals sempre es poden mantenir cuan esbossam al nostre temps personal, o amb fi de setmanes, o simplement cuan el treball ho requereix. Gracies per la visita i esper que tot vagi be per La Garriga! :)

Awsome post Marcos. I need to give a cintiq a try. Its rather amazing to see all of these new tools evolve and see how they effect the production of art work. Always great to stop by your blog.

Hans said...

Veru cool, love the composition! I'm on a cintiq now too and it's a dream:D!
Gotta do lunch soon, been way too long!

Enjoy the weekend.

Andy Bialk said...

Love your line, man...love it!

Mo Sweat said...

Genial ilustración, Marcos. Como he leído por ahí en un comentario, esas palmeras hipnotizan, son espectaculares y no se porqué, pero me recuerdan vagamente en algo a Sergio Toppi.

Saludos.

Carol said...

Qué buena composición O_o...hm, qué bueno todo :)

(seguiré sumando ahorros para pillar la cintiq... no paro de oír maravillas)

un saludo!

I remember when I first got my Cintiq, my girlfriend at the time thought it was a person's name and suspected me of cheating because of all the time I was spending with "her".
But yeah, great work Marcos. Can't wait to see more.

No sabía si escribirte en español o en inglés. En español, al final.
Ha sido inspirador descubrir tus dibujos, seguiré pasando por aquí.
Encantada de conocer tu blog,
