Mary Poppins

Very creative days, I had fun drawing Mary Poppins.
The sketchbook grows every day and then I have a great time coloring in Photoshop.

The details like the hat pin, the crochet gloves, the parrot umbrella, the boots and the magical travel bag, they
have made me really enjoy drawing this illustration.

I developed the composition with Mary Poppins in the foreground, above the clouds,
fly over the Park with Victorian houses and arrives to the children's house... where Bert, his friend, the chimney sweep greets her from the roof.



Altamira Caves and The family of "Lo"

I am enjoying a lot drawing these illustrations traveling to the Ice Age, for a personal project.

The family of "Lo"

I found a pretty adventurous and very strong family. The family of "Lo". They live in the Altamira Caves and have everything they could wish for. They hunt and fish, they give thanks to the gods of Nature, the grandfather is the Shaman and and recently they have found babies of "Teeth of Sable" some "very tender kittens" ... they have a big Mammoth since he was little and he helps them in the housework, for example go for wood for the harsh winter. They like animals so much and are thinking about becoming vegetarians!
Hope you enjoy!
A small "Saber Tooth", sweet Smilodon, has gotten a ribey.

Dancing at the Court

At the end I upload this illustration. With it I began to draw in this style and technique and I see that it gives me many expressive possibilities. Love it!
I really enjoyed drawing the details and fantasy of fairy tales with princes and princesses.

Automaton Chess Player

Drawing this sketch while i was reading a book based on an automaton that played chess built by von Kempelen. The Great Chess Automaton was a wooden figure dressed in Turkish clothes.
Enjoying drawing it in two styles.



Circus: "The Greatest Show on Earth"

I am working on some Circus scenes.

First sketches, then playing with color and I have discovered that "The Greatest Show on Earth" it is more than I always thought.

Now I understand the passion my sister felt for the life of the Circus. And... It's Freedom.

Magic lessons with Merlin and little Arthur

Magic lessons with Merlin and young Arthur.

I've been experimenting with new techniques for a while.
Every day I draw the sketch of an idea and then I draw it and color it with Photoshop, new textures and a new style. I really like the process and the finished illustration.

I hope to upload more scenes and new characters soon.

The Unicorn drinking water from the Rainbow

The magic of the Unicorn and to observe him drinking water from the Rainbow has been a great joy for me.
I have never drawn a Unicorn before and it has been a wonderful and magical experience.
