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...

Hi guys, I'm working on another spanish soldier from the XVIIth Century that I expect to finish in few days. Stay tunee! I must add that the first one had a great welcome here on dA!

I must say "Thank you" to all the visitors (more than 16.000) and specially my watchers (more than 300). Even if I hadn't being uploading during the last year visits and watchers have increased a lot. I know the main reason is the collection of Marvel and DC girls I made last year, but there have been also a lot of visits to my other stuff, and even "process images".

So thanks a lot!!
Nordlingen 1634 by Almayer
Nordlingen 1634
As I told you yesterday, here's my first work for Ducbelli.com: an Spanish Tercio swordsman in the Battle of Nördlingen on September, 1634.

The illustrations for this company must be historically accurate. The dress, the flag with the cross of St. Andrew, the rapier, the dagger ("Vizcaína" sword), and the brimmed hat with feathers are typical of a Spanish soldier from that age, in which themselves paid for their own clothes and equipment, and fought for Catholicism, for his king and his honor over than for the money or glory. They were feisty and courageous, being considered the best army of the time (they were undefeated for 150 years). Nördlingen was a decisive battle into the Thirty Years War as the victory over swedish army consolidated Spain as the main european power, although forced the entry of France into the war, which eventually meant the end of the invincibility of these legendary spanish troops.

Hope you like it!

3- Flats
4- Volume, detail, and softened lines
5- Textures and adjustments
6- Title and year of the battle as a logo.

Starting this month, after 10 years working for the same company, I will work on my own.

It's been a time in which I learned a lot, but unfortunately I've had the feeling at times of wasting my time on something that was not going to reach to anywhere.

The global economic situation and in particular my country's has good fault my previous firm was unable to develop all that was due, because at first we had a lot of potential. I myself had a lot of potential, and I've probably made ​​this decision too late.

My collaboration with my former company has not ended yet totally, I will continue working with them in many works, which I hope will be less and less, because it would be a sign that I managed to get myself my own clients and assignments to survive without them.

But life goes on, and the road there are a few new projects. For now, I made my first design for "Ducbelli Camisetas con Historia" (www.ducbelli.com), a firm of a college friend who makes shirts on worldwide military history. I hope this collaboration is fruitful. Soon I will upload here this first illustration, which deals with Spanish Tercios in the Thirty Years War, around 1634.

I'm drawing since childhood, so after I finished high school I studied Fine Arts in Seville, my hometown. I majored in painting, and I'm working as a graphic and web designer, illustrator and cartoonist for a small local company. 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.
