Xketches


I told you about my art pens... they're sooooo cool, I feel like a kid with new toys, sure.

Here my favorite X Men, Nightcrawler, the best when in Excalibur, and Wolverine... of course.

New Toys

My preciousssss

Yesterday I bought one of those so beautiful Adam Hughes sketchbooks, and saw what he does with the art pens for sketching... and I got some of them too.

They're not what you'd call cheap stuff, but man, you can get really spectacular effects with them, really fast and easy.
This is Javi Pina, my first portrait in years.

To work with this ones you have to work from lighter tones to darker ones...

And finally, the Black Widow from Marvel, the red for the hair and the details is a normal alcohol marker, is not as transparent as the expensive ones but enough for this...

Messen house, in Ålvik, Norway.

De Messen House

This summer I've gone for my second time to Norway, but this time with the intention of working.

We found this really nice artist's house in the fjord of Hardanger, the most beautiful part of Norway... maybe not, because it's a amazingly beautiful country full of contrasts, from really beautiful to unbelievably beautiful.

The people working in there were very good hosts and I just can't say thank you enough times.

What did I do there? The idea was to sketch some things for a travel book, but it was finally impossible, too beautiful to get my eyes apart of it. But once here I've found somethings to do with what I experienced there.

If you want info of the place, check here and if you want to see some photos I shot, check here.

One video

I know this is my professional blog so I shouldn't post funny videos or stuff like that.

But this one is about comics too...
