 portfolio: illustration and design
The portfolio is a mix of Fantasy/Horror/Scifi illustrations, sketches, studies, and mockups. I'll probably split it into thematic sections in the near future. Just click on the thumbnails to enlarge, and on the numbers below to switch to the next thumbnail panel.
  • InDesign mockup: Fantazine cover
    To practice with Adobe InDesign on my own, I decided to create a fictitious magazine. Fantazine was the result. Just to be clear: none of the artwork used in Fantazine is mine, I merely used it as an exercise in page composition. The cover illustration is by the talented John Dickerson.
  • InDesign mockup: Fantazine 2
    To practice with Adobe InDesign on my own, I decided to create a fictitious magazine. Fantazine was the result. Just to be clear: none of the artwork used in Fantazine is mine, I merely used it as an exercise in page composition. Artwork from the PC game Neverwinter Nights by Black Isle Studios and Deus Ex: Invisible War by the now defunct Ion Storm (authors unknown).
  • InDesign mockup: Fantazine 3
    To practice with Adobe InDesign on my own, I decided to create a fictitious magazine. Fantazine was the result. Just to be clear: none of the artwork used in Fantazine is mine, I merely used it as an exercise in page composition. Artwork from the console game Baldur's Gate 2: Dark Alliance by Black Isle Studios (author unknown), and a photo of an Alienware laptop.
  • InDesign mockup: Fantazine 4

Artwork: Ghost in the Shell series by Production I.G.; Vampire Princess Yui by Narumi Kakinouchi; and Kunoichi by SEGA. Unfortunately, I forgot the source of the two bishounen I used in the "More Cool-Looking But Useless Armor" section.

    Another experiment with Adobe Illustrator.

    Yet another female study done in pencils.
  • My Portfolio: Face Study

    Based on a novel which, in turn, was based upon the tragic Irish folktake of Deirdre. The drawing depicts the moment when Deirdre encounters the sea for the first time in her life.
  • My Portfolio: Lara Croft and the Tomb of Herakles
    No need for introductions.
  • My Portfolio: Teledyne Waterpik Massage
    Merely a female body study, no history to it.

    Dorvak was a character I created for a Dungeons & Dragons campaign many years ago, and one of the most memorable.
  • My Portfolio: Lover's Kiss
    Fantasy/Horror Illustration
  • My Portfolio: Absinth Mirror
    Fantasy/Horror Illustration. Just mixing some Kawaidan-like monster with some absinth on the side. Still needs some work.

    Another Lara Croft drawing (colored pencil drawing retouched in Photoshop). The background is a filtered photo of the Great Sphinx.
  • My Portfolio: Female study
  • My Portfolio: Female study
  • My Portfolio: Face studies
    Playing with several female faces... pencil.
  • My Portfolio: Saturnine (detail of work in progress)
    Fantasy/Horror Illustration. My third horror-themed Illustration made during October 2007. Naturally, it is inspired in the nightmarish Goya painting titled "Saturn Devouring His Son." Genders are switched, and instead of a pagan deity I have here a frenzied credit-card-worshipping "pagan consumer." Still unfinished. Will post the whole piece once I'm done.
