Adventure lands & projects



Time for adventure, a number of characters I designed for a graphic novel long time ago. It included both european as well as exotic (from a european POV that is) lands! The other is a panel I did for the Pirate story called "El Pacifico' with my friends Marcelo Vignali and Armand Serrano.
On another note, these days I'm very busy putting together the final touches of a project of mine coming out soon. It's been an intense and exciting year I'll say!

Brilliant work! Just when I start feeling good about my work, I'm reminded about how much harder I need to work to get to a great level! Just phenomenal characters and the lighting and camera plane used to capture the pirate ship scene is really awe-inspiring!
