Professional soldiers / mercenaries are the words that pop into my head when I look at this couple.

They are being pursued but they are not fearful about their predicament. They’re looking back making sure the haven’t lost the people that are chasing them.

Both faces show confidence. She is cool, her weapon is down and does not feel she is in danger.
He is a little on the ruthless side, calculating but loyal.

Although he finds her beautiful, he feels too old for her. She is the daughter of his best friend. He owes his friend, her dad, his life. Mission is a favor she asked in her father’s name. She is attracted to him.

They are leading their pursuers to ... an ambush? ... a secret location that those who follow hold the key to?

Or their after some juvenile delinquents on the backlot of Adventureland in Disneyland.

your expressive energetic line flow in some your pieces reminds of some of Charles Gibson work and his iconic Gibson girl illustrations but applied in a more contemporary way. They're real dynamic and have a energy to them!

Kinman said...

the characters don't show any threat.. so I would guess they're mildly impressed with something.. couple random ideas come to mind..

-They're looking at another character who expresses comic relief for the audience.. like a jester of some sort..

-If they're the villains, they could be torturing someone and getting a kick out of it..

-.. the Disneyland comment is pretty genius.. I'd go with that one.. :)

This is my first post to your blog, Marcos and I must thank you for the compliment of looking for my non-existing blog. It suggests you found me interesting ..... wow! In truth you are the interesting one with the brush full of FLAIR and I’m only an observer (although my mother thinks I’m interesting).

On top of all this Kinman calls my comment “genius”. This is an implication that I am therefore ... a genius?

My oldest son (Junior) blogs, (computer programming) and of course has my name. If you need to read a blog with my name, you could read his until I get mine going :) ... of course I will probably go by the name of “TORTE”, just to be unique.

I don’t speak like I write but I like to think I’m funny.

Marcos Mateu said...

-Thanks Warwick!

-Thanks a lot Craig

-Grazie mille Alessandra. Everything Ok in Torino?

-Thanks a lot for your nice words Humza!

-Kinman, thanks for giving your thoughts on these characters!

-Thomas! I will take a look at Junior's for sure

-Thanks Martin. I'll be in Burbank for the show indeed!

Una canya com sempre Marcos!! Tens els dibuixos més impactants que he vist mai!! La teva línia és flipant, encara tenc un dibuix a tinta que feres a classe d'un soldat penjat a la meva habitació, és genial, i me'n record que no et va dur més de 5 minuts, i amb 4 taques i 4 línies (mallorquines) ho dius tot!! Molt expressiu! No deixis de dibuixar mai ;) i jo seguiré intentant pareixer-me a tu sensei.

Una aferrada des de Mallorca!

Raul Avila said...

-Thanks Gigi!

-Gracias Kcirbuk!

-Moltes gracies Victor! ara tenc curiositat per saber de quin dibuix me parles.
Una abraçada de volta!

All these black and whites are great.
They remind me again and again how powerful and expressive this comic book style can be!

Shuku said...

He: "My my my, what do we have here - do I see Doctor Jones and the beautiful Miss Trouble?"

She: "...either that or it's a peacock with a bad hair day."

From off-screen: " know, I swear I thought El Dorado was THAT way, but I think we might just have read the map upside down."

From off-screen: "'re gonna burn in hell for this, Indy."
