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...


Captain America Sketch by Almayer
Captain America Sketch
I'm trying to draw several comic pages to show to editors and I was thinking on doing a version of an scene of "Captain America: The Winter soldier". So I did this sketch (and several more in different poses) trying to decide if the stealth costume (and the action scene chosen...) would be too complicated or go ahead with it. I'm still undecided. Maybe iI only have to simplify it a little or think on story to do.
Posted the works I made for the araucaria tree visitors center at last. The place was opened last monday.…
Volcano smoke over carboniferous period valley by Almayer
Volcano smoke over carboniferous period valley
The trunk of the fossil tree they found was burnt by a cloud of extremely heat smoke and covered by tons of mud fell from the hillside, as the volcano's top was covered in snow. The client wanted to depict for the visitors what happened as close as possible and this was the result. The most difficult one of the series because of the smoke and several changes I had to make during the process to match what the client had in mind. But the funniest one to paint. 3 meters wide too.
Araucaria tree from below by Almayer
Araucaria tree from below
With the help of several photo references of modern araucaria trees and other images of recreation provided by the client I digitally painted this strange view of a tree made to be seen behind the trunk of a 300 million years old (carboníferos period, even before dinosaurs) tree fossil lying on the floor in a hall of a little visitors center in Almadén de la Plata (Sevilla). This is the first of the three comisionó I had to piano for the project and the larger one (6 meters wide). 

You can see the new in a digital local paper:…

A variad range of works in the last months, I guess :)

Hope you like it.
Harrison Ford as Han Solo pencil sketch by Almayer

Not much happy with this one, but it's not bad I guess. The photograph I found had poor quality and I think I portrayed his face wider than it was, but it looks more or less like him in that years.
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker pencil sketch by Almayer
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker pencil sketch
Something I've just done half an hour ago. It's a long time I've been thinking of doing something Star Wars related, as it is my favourite science fiction story of all time. I did today a Carrie Fisher sketch but it was awful, then did this one, Black Jedi outfit Luke Skywalker. The idea was to make it look a little comic style, and the picture I selected to copy (I googled Mark Hamill and found tons of material) has all the credit for the awesome shadows it has. They really helped me a lot.

I'm really happy with the result. I've been studying some Stuart Immonen comic pages (mainly New Avengers pages) these last days (I know of him a month ago or so; remember that I usually only read manga... Great discovery!) and his use of blacks in the faces he draw has influenced me to do this portrait, I guess.

I think I'll give Carrie another try and draw more SW sketches in the next weeks. Enjoy!
Spent the whole weekend drawing like crazy. The step ahead made yesterday was very positive but today I feel there's still so much to do.
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...


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!
