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...

Just updated some Carlos Pacheco's course pages with totally finished new images...
Classic Wonder Woman Inks by Almayer
Classic Wonder Woman Inks
These are the very retouched inks of a Wonder woman Sketch I did last year, trying to emulate José Luis García López style (but during the inking process I've mixed his style with Frank Cho's and Yanick Paquette's a little). I wanted to ink her sometime, and as I have finished my last course this seemed to be the perfect moment. I think it really has been improved a lot (she was really disproportioned in the pencils), thanks to my continuous human body studies (but I need to learn a lot more!).
You can see the pencils here: almayer.deviantart.com/art/Gar…
Don't know if I will put color here...
Enjoy!

Uncanny Avengers Pencils 7 by Almayer
Uncanny Avengers Pencils 7
Last one of Pacheco's Superhero Comic Book Course. Very hard to finish, much destruction mixed with perspective on the first panel (and my inexperience...) made me take too much time to end this page, but finally is done!

In this page Synapse is wounded in her forehead and Medusa helps her to get close to Hellion and interrupt his powers temporarily to stop the telekinetic storm that's destroynig New Attilan.

I think I'll be drawing sketches and studies for some days to relax a little, but trying to reinforce what was learned during the course and fix some problems I've detected in my figure drawing.

You can see the rest of the course's pages in my gallery: almayer.deviantart.com/gallery…

Hope you like it!

Uncanny Avengers pencils 6 by Almayer
Uncanny Avengers pencils 6
Another one! Only one more to finish the course!

Hellion can't control his power and is causing a telekinetic storm that's destroying New Attilan. Synapse gets wounded by some debris while trying to calm down Hellion.

Almost done pencils on the 6th page on the Uncanny Avengers
The latests hand studies I did were very useful, I'm feeling an improvement drawing comic book hands.

Spain
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.

Interests
I have been consulting some people, and I have had long talks with some of them, most fellow artists, and I could see more clearly my weaknesses while drawing and in my attitude, what to change and what to enhance and improve...
It is unusual for me to ask opinion to others about what I do, despite being exposed publicly with my work here and on other networks such as facebook. Receiving criticism is hard for me, always has been. However this time I've been looking for it.
Some of the things they mentioned I could see them myself. Others not. It has been enlightening and I think from now on I will count more with the view of those around me. One believes that knows a lot about any subject, in this case drawing, but in a way is blind to many details. The help of others is necessary even when they say things we wouldn't want to hear.
Also yesterday I was looking for information about Yannick Paquette. I just discover him as an artist for his recent work in Wonder Woman Earth One and I was amazed with his drawing skills. I have had the opportunity to see some pages in detail, expanding the images a lot, observed the lines of ink used, and despite how clean everything looks normal size, they are faster, loose and even a little dirty (at least to my way of understanding inks). I thought a well done professional job in the world of American comics should be cleaner and precise. I had already seen it in Frank Cho (although he appears to be absolutely clean), and even in Garcia-Lopez works (when Inking himself), but had not paid enough attention: agile, open lines, not always connected to each other... dynamic! That is missing from my drawings! I leave everything so tied, all lines are so studied that the power is lost. My drawings look beautiful (I guess) but are lacking in grace. It's something that should start changing from now on!
Watching a couple of videos of Paquette and reading a couple of interviews in which he commented on his career I realized something. It's funny because it's something I have heard before, but until yesterday I did not see clearly: Yannick said his time making monthly series was very hard, but, and this is important, the speed a penciller should work to meet deadlines was what helped shape his style. Yes, it has influences as anyone, and that's important, but the daily work under pressure, which pushes to leave everything looser, simplify judiciously, but without thinking too much how each line is done, is what ends making a cartoonist really its potential to become a reality and that their drawings look as good drawings, not as someone's who has some idea, but that seems to be tied hand and uncomfortable, just my case.
I do not know if I managed to explain well, but I have it pretty clear now: we must draw a lot, A LOT (this is never insisted enough), and not do, as I do, an illustration a week studying each line I draw. You have to let the lines flow alone a bit, LET THAT HAPPY ACCIDENTS HAPPEN, and try not to be with the same job too long. Let's see if I can apply these teachings in my work!

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you from my private collection.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Please let me know your thoughts and keep up the great work!
