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...


Inking Immonen - All New X-Men by Almayer
Inking Immonen - All New X-Men
Another inking practice done during the last 2 days in between other works. This page is #19 from issue 17, I found the original pencils here:…

Although it's not a good quality image for this kind of work, was enough for me to use it for this practice. Done with a different brush this time, one that I had the feeling that emulates an Eding 1200 marker. Maybe not the best option to ink comic book pages, but the feeling was good.

I find very difficult to emulate Von Grawbadger's crosshatching, I need more practice! But I'll change penciler next time. Enough Immonen for the moment.
Still practicing my skills to become a good finisher. Inking more Immonen pencils, this time a page from All New X-Men.
Inking Reis - Aquaman by Almayer
Inking Reis - Aquaman
Hi again! This time I come with another inking practice by a great comic book artist: Ivan Reis. A very gifted penciler!

It took me three weeks to finish it as I've being inking it few time in spare days while I was finishing new pages for the Holy Week Comic Book I work on for my company. I think it should have been very difficult for me to finish in a workday a page with as much detail as this one has.

Now it's time to show these pages to see if I can get a different job to that I 've been doing the last eleven years. Let's see what happen.
Inking a page from Aquaman by Ivan Reis. A difficult practice, but having fun!
Inking Garcia-Lopez - JLA Classified by Almayer
Inking Garcia-Lopez - JLA Classified
This piece has made me have a hard time last 2 days. I have a copy of the original comic called "The Hypothetical Woman", drawn by JLGL and inked by Klaus Janson, and I thought it will be easy to ink but it isn't.

I don't like Klaus Janson inks in this particular comics. I think he is a great inker, but he just does not suit to the master García-López drawings. So I decided to give this page (#4) a different look, just to my liking for this penciler.

Pencils are not so tight as they seem and I have to finish several areas that were a little confusing. The ones that read the book will note that Martian Manhunter is not there. In the original pencils Aquaman is in his place, as you can see here.

The reason behind this inked pages all of a sudden is that I'm preparing a portfolio to show, trying to ink several artists with different styles.

So now, who's next? Reis... or Cinar... maybe more Immonen... I don't know...

Hope you like it.
Next inking practices are over García-López, and, probably, Ivan Reis...
Inking Immonen's Star wars by Almayer
Inking Immonen's Star wars
This guy is fantastic, I think he's the best in the business today, even if I prefer other styles. And Von Grawbadger Inks are great too! This is another practice I made this past week to learn more of Clip Studio and Immonen's (and Grawbadger's) knowledge.

I tried to be most respectful and true possible to the pencils. Immonen really finishes his pencils a lot and that helps!

Not bad result considering it's been done with an Intuos, it would be better with a Cintiq I guess...

Inking Madureira by Almayer
Inking Madureira
I've heard of Madureira a long ago, but never seen something of him until now. I was surfing the net looking for something good to ink and practice with Clip Studio and then appeared this. I liked very much and grab it. I really enjoyed this inking time, I'll surely repeat.

My skills need improvement, but it's not a bad start!

Thanks Joe, hope you don't mind!

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.  ;)
