I found it interesting in general. The story looks good and I have nothing bad to say about it. The drawings needs your technical impro...

Hi! I think I'd only change/add 2 things to it: 1- The part of the tail that is on the left side of the picture doesn't look to connect...


Garcia-Lopez Style Wonder Woman by Almayer
Garcia-Lopez Style Wonder Woman
At last! Something that just came out of my head instead of being a copy! After months of copying García-López (and other comic artists, but mainly him) I've finally been able to do something absolutely mine in non-manga style at all!

I know it has its flaws here and there, but it works more or less well as a whole, so I'm very happy.

Now, let's keep working (copying, but inventing as well) to become a better comic book artist, this is only a little step. I'm on the right path I guess.

Hope you like it.

PS: I'll probably ink her. I'm not following Inktober, but seeing so many people inking everywhere made me want to ink something...
Donna Troy faces by Almayer
Donna Troy faces
A new practice, this time sketching faces of the main character of "The Return of Donna Troy". I really like JLGL's work in this book, but I must say that George Perez's inking is great too. A great couple of masters I guess.

As always, not perfectly copied, only tried to get the essence of the original drawings and learn a little.

I've been doing some more sketches these days, but not many due to work. I liked this one, that's why I'm uploading it even if I said I won't be uploading more copies. I wanted to put here something of my own and that will be the MOTU illustration I'm working on. But I still don't know when will it be finished...
Working on the MOTU project I planned for the time I reach 20.000 pageviews. A little late but I'll finish it.
Ok, I'll keep drawing JLGL characters, but I'll stop uploading them. I'll try to post something of my own next time! Let's see...
Tempest from Atari Force 2 Fact File by Almayer
Tempest from Atari Force 2 Fact File
This morning I choose these character from Atari Force to practice. His pose looks rather familiar, I've seen several Supermans and Green Lanterns drawn in, more or less, this position. It's a José Luis trademark pose I guess. I love it. I didm't know the name of the character, so when saw the name I inmediately thought about Joey Tempest from the 80's swedish rock band "Europe" :)

As with the previous ones, I wanted to study the pose and figure construction, then continued too much and finally rendered all the detail... I can't help it, it's my favourite part of a drawing!

Hope you like it.
From Atari Force number one by Garcia-Lopez by Almayer
From Atari Force number one by Garcia-Lopez
Sketch copy from the cover of "Atari Force" #1, again by José Luis García López. Took me about 35 min.

I started it with the intention of drawing a simple study of the structure of the figure, but I finally kept drawing until I put, more or less, all the details.
A difficult desing to be drawn again and again along the whole story, I guess he really worked hard on that comic book.

I really enjoy these copies and I think that they are helping me a lot with my figure drawing. I hope to do something personal soon to upload here!
Tesla Strong Sketch from JLGL by Almayer
Tesla Strong Sketch from JLGL
Another sketch from Garcia Lopez works, this time is a Tesla Strong. I don't know the character at all, I've only seen this JLGL page of her.

I personas like very much the inning job made by the master in that page.

You can see the original drawing of Jose Luis here:…

I'll keep practising a little more.
4th of July Superman pencil copy by Almayer
4th of July Superman pencil copy
Last 4th of July someone posted a Superman illustration in a JLGL Facebook fan page. I liked very much the pose and this is what I managed to do with it. Head's a little big and he looks like Cristiano Ronaldo, but it's not so bad. In the original one he's a USA flag. I only suggested the shaft. Another step ahead to learn as much as I can to draw my own figures, hopefully soon.
A practice I made this morning by Almayer
A practice I made this morning
This is from a cover of a Titans comic book, original art by J. L. García López.

I wanted to draw a pair of figures interacting to make it a little more difficult compared to previous days. Scanned the construction of the figures before going on with the details. Is not 100% accurate (it's not the intention to make a perfect copy, I'm trying to learn from the drawings I'm doing these days, and draw them the faster I can), but I like the result.

It took me almost an hour, it's still too much time, but I must think that I'm copying and trying to make it the better I can. I guess that it should take less than half an hour if it were my own creation and I wasn't looking to a model to compare every stroke.

Hope you like it!


Almayer's Profile Picture
David Cabeza
Artist | Professional | Varied
I'm drawing since childhood, so after I finished high school I studied Fine Arts in Seville, my hometown. I majored in painting. I've been working as a graphic and web designer, illustrator and cartoonist for a small local company. nNow I'm a freelance. Very fond of manga, I love the electric guitar, the gym and jogging. And Star Wars!

Here you'll find mainly old works from my time at university, and new paintings and drawings made on traditional or digital media.

As I told before, I was studying some anatomy from Vilppu's books and vídeos and I'm already ending. Refreshed a lot my knowledge and learned a lot more. Hope it'll help drawing figures from now on!

Unreal mate. Just bloody unreal and awesome.

Your talent is phenomenal.

And I don't just mean whatever innate gift you have. I'd guess there has also been a lot of practice..

Whatever the balance, the result is incredible and your work is outstanding.

Please keep it up and good luck with everything you do now and in future.

No excuse me while I go away to feel inadequate after looking at your gallery.  ;)

Thank you very much for your kind words. It's been a lot of practice but I'll be sincere: I'm very lazy. I mean that I should have been doing a lot more practice instead of wasting so much time all my life. I'm conscious I have had good abilities since child but my evolution is poor because of that lazyness. It is my shame. I don't have the will needed to be a great illustrator. I'll keep working and maybe someday I'll be whorty of your words.
So, about your work I encourage you to continue working with strong passion if you really love art and believe in what you do. Your gallery is not inadequate ;)
Thanks again!

Love Love Love !!! Your page, awesome inspiration, i have just started with Manga Studio with the Inking,
and i think iam getting the hang of it, would you, or do you, colour with Mana Studio or with Photoshop ??
Iam thinking of trying to go with MS to keep it all simple etc 
Enjoyed finding your page ! Cheers ! Kymbo
Almayer Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015  Professional General Artist
I use Corel Painter or Photoshop for colour. I have not tried MS for coloring. It would keep it simple, but I think PS or Corel Painter are still better than MS for the coloring process (think that PS is the standard in comic book coloring). But with inks… it's really fantastic!

Thank you for visiting my page and for the faves too!

I will have a look at Corel Painter, thank you for the reply ! Cheers
