Desert Night

TigerCat

This was a crazy-ridiculous-weird idea for the Fotolia “One Clock, One Fruit and One Cat” contest, but a LOT! of love was poured on it… it’s hard to think about something original with a cat a clock and a fruit but I think I quite made it, I honestly like the result… let’s hope people do as well..! The whole thing is based on this ninja cat or whatever that summons the tiger spirit to kick some pineapple ass!!..  I know!! it does make a lot of sense… but I liked it!

Desert Night

Desert Nights

I was wondering how a night in the desert in the middle of a mystic sand storm would be, then what if a wonderful mythical creature would show up, but what is she doing? looking for water? dancing? making a sacrifice or a plea to Selene?… go figure…! I know kentaurides make just part of greek mythology (or do they?) but who said there’s no deserts in Greece?! if there was an underworld for Hades and a mighty mountain for Zeus, then there must have surely been deserts for horse-women-witch… Anyway, I personally  believe this is my best illustration so far, I pushed myself a bit further trying to make textures alive, keeping it realistic yet fantastic and a bit surreal…  I’m quite excited about the outcome, and though I’m sure it’s far from flawless, I think it’s pretty nice.

And for those of you who liked it, and would probably want to see it as your desktop background, here’s the surprise!! please enjoy!! and don’t forget to comment.

Home Sweet Home

My Second Submision to “LaFraise“. Inspired by the famous “home sweet home” quote and represented from a different perspective… a snails perspective? maybe…? Anyway, I thought it would be a nice idea to play with, colors are pretty sweet and this little guy is kinda cool.

Gaïa

My first submision on LaFraise (a T-Shirt website), on the “Gaïa” contest; the goal was to represent mother earth, nature, our beautiful planet, very interesting topics to create awareness on the environmental problems of today, or probably just as a homage to the unique (or is it?) wonderful planet we live in!… My design represents mother earth, I played a bit with  shapes (it’s “Gaïa” shaped if you look carefully) and adding some cute little details to make it look more natural-mother-earth-environmental-green- like. What do you think?

Let them Fly!

Diva

This is an illustration I’ve been working on for a while, I call it, Diva… The whole concept comes from the idea of a godess-genie like source of inspiration between the artist and the canvas, how from a certain point everything starts flowing untill it becomes a work of art or masterpiece… Hope you like it; it was achieved using different kind of brushes for the ink-like fluid effect and splatters… comments please?

I started this experimental Illustration by playing with some typography, water effects, a couple animals, and some elements that are a little out of place but I think I was able to make fit in a nice way.
Overall it was just really fun, the illustration is a little “absurd” and pretty surreal, though I liked the final result.
Hope you like it, please comment!!

What a mesh…

The Tree of Ages

Illustrator Mesh

Some people would look at this pretty face and would say, wooow, she’s gorgeous!! definitely not real!! and I understand, it happened to me ;), but they’re right, she’s not!!, at least not this one, she’s a realistic vectorial illustration of the real, talented (and extremely hot!) french singer, Alizée… Still don’t believe it??, just click on her and you’ll see how meshed up she is.

The Ugly Duckling

This is the ugly duckling, one day he grew up and with the help of some make up, plastic surgery and photoshop became a beautiful swan, because of that he got featured in the “1 0 0 U N D E R 1 0 0 : v o l . 4″ news article in DeviantArt…  I had a lot of fun with this one, I was playing with some colors, lights and effects. 

Hispanos por la Paz

And the winner (of the second place...) is!!

My good friend Diego told me one of those times he was struggling with lots of icons (cuz he just loves it), that there was a contest in DeviantArt inviting most of the latinamerican designers and artists to reproduce something inspired on the title “Hispanos por la Paz”, which means: Hispaniards for the peace, which means: latinamerica wants the brainless, pointless, senseless conflict to stop, which means…. anyway, I thought I would give it a try, it was inspired in the hispanic flag and this was the result, I really liked it and I wasn’t expecting it to get the second place (in the digital illustration category) but obviously I was really happy about it!! hope you like it!

The Tree of Ages

Photoshop

Some people just can’t believe it when I say it, but I found this tree when I was walking in the forest the other day, I was so excited to see a tree!! with face!! that I immediatly took the picture cuz you don’t see that everyday! I talked with him for like an hour but he didn’t answer, I guess he was sleeping….  When I got home (starving and incredibly thirsty!) I told everybody but nobody believed me… they said I was acting weird, I guess I was still high…
