Hanging a new start

An old simple pop up I made in my old Moleskine at the end of 2011. I thought I already posted it here... but I didn't. As it's Christmas-like, I thought it was the right time ;)

I designed this little tree-dressed girl. Every year, she takes her stairs and she puts up a new star that represents the year which is about to end, that's why it's written 2011 in the star she's holding. So, this time, she would "hang" 2013's star. A new year that is about to finish, and a new year that will be born soon!

Looking at this illustration, I got a lot of memories. It's been a long time, these years, from 2011 to 2013, passed away quickly. These years were I met a lot of people, and that helped me to know more about myself, and about people around me. I drew more, especially this year, and I don't plan to stop with it, if maybe to specialize more, and trying new things that will help me to improve and to keep learning. New year, new resolutions ;)

Horse year (chinese year) is about to start!! Bye bye Snake's year. You were, generally, a good one for me. Other than that, it was not a good year for people around me talking about health. I hope next one to be better in this aspect.

Happy new year 2014!! Be happy and goog luck!!

Getting ready

This little cup is ready for whatever awaits him, fearless, accepting it and looking forward.

These days I'm really busy!! that's why I couldn't post anything here. But don't worry!! I keep drawing every time I have time for myself, it's just that these days are crazy :(

The end of the year is almost here!! I can't believe it's coming to an end so soon... I really hope for this new year to be a good one, especially for a person, and for the people around that person... they deserve it, they really do.

Anyway, I hope you have a nice day!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!! I made this illustration as a postal ;). I had a lot of fun while planning it... I wanted this little girl to have an umbrella, and to make it looks like a Christmas tree itself, even with ornaments and a star on top of it ;). She's walking over a shooting star, as if it was a road... or maybe it's the path she chose to take, where will it lead her? ;)

I sketched today a "sequel" for this illustration, in some way! but I'm not sure if I will get time to post it on time... well I will try to do it (the sketch at least), I promise!

Hope you have a really nice holidays, and for the start of the year to be kind to you. Be happy and glad for what you have, enjoy these days with the people around you who love you... Good luck!

I don't know if I will get time to post anything here tomorrow, so, have fun!!

Waiting for Santa

Christmas Day is almost here!! This little cup, and his friends, are so excited they can't wait to meet Santa Claus as soon as possible. They don't care for presents, they just want to meet him ;).

These days I'm really busy (places and people to meet), and even if I will keep an eye on my blog and internet every day, maybe I won't can post daily, but I will try hard to keep going with it. But, you know, these holiday days are like these.

Are you waiting for Santa? Do you celebrate it? In my house, we don't exactly "celebrate" it. Since being kids, my sister and myself waited for Santa to leave us a present, but it was always a small present, to keep us entertained till the big day, the important celebration in my country: the arrival of Three Wise Kings (January 6th).

I have good memories, of my sister and myself preparing milk and cookies for all of them (for Santa and for the Three Wise Kings, and water for their camels). And you know what? They drank and ate our cookies every year, which made us very happy ;)

Have nice holidays!! See you!!

Pattern girl

Sketch from my little sketchbook.

I have too many things to do and places to go! I need time to stop, if only a little... But it has good things too. I've met also really nice people lately, and I'm quite motivated right now thanks to them too. People around you can influence you for sure. Sometimes you need to go out of your comfort zone to keep going. I don't regret anything I have done so far, and having around me people that appreciate me (old and new ones). Thank you for always dealing with me, and for supporting me too.

Nothing else for today!! have fun and tomorrow more ;).

Letters delivery

This little elf is ready for delivery! He won't stop till these letters arrive in a fat red-dressed man, no mater if it's snowing ;).

These days I'm really busy! The new year is almost here, and I want to take advantage of it all I can, it's like running out of time! There are too many things I want to try (and to show you!) ... But I also need to attend some obligations, so I won't can keep drawing all time I would like to :(.

Winter is here today!! Take care of your health to start the new year with energy... and Merry Christmas ;)

To the adventure

Finally I can show you this illustration!!!

I was really happy when Pilar from Bienvenidos a Lilliput asked me to draw the cover of the first number (nº0) of her magazine!!  Of course I wanted to participate ;). After a many sketches we decided to draw this illustration of two adventurer mouses ploughing through the sea... or maybe a lake? But how are the bravest? the captain or the cabin boy ;)

I had a lot of fun while drawing it, I enjoyed every little detail and texture of it. It almost made me feel bad when I finished it... :(


Also, inside there's a little interview about myself and my illustrations, among other really good and personal sections. It's very colorful!!. If you want to know more about this magazine, take a look to this post (Spanish only).

Once I know of some places where you can get it, I will let you know ;).

Here is a list of places where you can find this magazine... and more ;)

Have fun and enjoy this adventure with us!!

Tea cookies

Some weeks ago I sketched these little cookies interacting with some of my "cup series". So, we can say they are new characters that will appear together with my cups once in a while ;). I will try to find time to finish some of these sketches as soon as possible!!

Yesterday I had a lot of fun!! I continued with an illustration I left unfinished and I had a lot of fun with it!! *____*. I spent almost all day with it. I missed that feeling! I have been (and will be) very busy these days! and I didn't get proper time to enjoy my time drawing something ;)

So, see you tomorrow!! Have fun!!

Not enough caffeine

Mornings, especially on Mondays, can be hard! so maybe a little a little of caffeine can help you to stay up... even if for this little one, it is a little difficult right now ;)

This weekend was a relaxing one for me, but one that came to me with surprises that made me smile :). Now it's time to start working again with some illustrations I left unfinished for these holidays... I hope I can finish them on time!! Too many things to do... this month will be hell!!

See you tomorrow!! Have a nice start of the week, with energy, there's no time to sleep! ;)

My second Moleskine

Today I decided to make a different post.

Do you remember my second Moleskine? I got it as a present from my sister. Once I finished with my old one, I decided to start with it. I was really surprised when I saw that the new one came with a little... "imperfection".

Yeah, it was... "stabbed" from its front cover through some pages (watercolor pages, I mean, they're not very thin). Because of its rubber-band, my sister didn't see it. Too bad, it was a present and there was no way I could return it to get a new one because I ripped its protector plastic.

Then I thought... why not to take advantage of it? Time to decorate! Nothing complicated, jut simple and cute.

Right after opening it I decided to cover the hole with decorated tape as if it was a strip. But before, I glued a piece of wrapping paper and drew its cord.

For the next page, where you can write your personal information in case of loss, I decided to use one of the lines and continue drawing it to use to tie the hanging cage. This time, this little illustration is more conceptual, the sky is trapped inside the cage, but the birds are flying free away ;)

For the next page, I played again with collage using different papers. The hole hides thanks to the basket.

What do I want to say with it? If you have someday a similar "problem" (as I now know it's not THAT bad), take advantage of it and use your imagination! Thanks to this little "imperfection" I love a lot my second Moleskine, even if it's still not finished.

Have fun!!

Jump and continue

I never intended to post this illustration in my blog (which I made in my Moleskine some months ago). But I changed my mind, I thought that I only could post it today...

My best wishes for you.

Jam little girl

Another illustration done with pencil colors I made recently! This time, a little girl wearing a dress that reminds to a jam jar. I thought she would like to eat to eat some strawberries, together with bread :)

Nothing else to say, just that yesterday was hell!! If this is how these days will be, I'll need time to recover (well, it was not that bad, just really stressful at the end of the day thanks to slow computers and slow internet.. I hate it...). I hope today will be better.

Have a nice day!!

Hard-working cup

This little cup is trying his best! it will take him time, because he's not too strong, but he can do it for sure!!

Here I'm again! Time to go back to work!! Not that I stopped drawing, at all, but these holiday days (in my country) helped me to relax a little and to think ;). Even so, I can see next days will be busy again, as Christmas is almost here!! Too many things to do, places to go, obligations, so many people to meet... I'm feeling overwhelmed just to think about it :(! Of course it's not bad!! but it will take time away from me... but it can be helped after all, it's time to say goodbye to this year :).

I will try to keep posting here as regularly as possible, but I'm sure I will be back to normal once these days come to an end.

Anyway, I hope you can enjoy (and to survive) these days. See you tomorrow and thank you for being there! ;)

Last leaves

Old sketch I found among a pile of sheets. I thought it was the right time to show it here, as autumn soon will come to an end...

It reminds me of an illustration I made during a festival, specifically, I was invited to draw in live in my city, back in 2011, if I remember correctly. Sadly I couldn't take the illustration with me (but I know someone took good care of it ;) ), but I know I got some photos done by a photographer classmate that day, so I will look for them and show them here (if my friend is OK with it, of course!), even it's been some years ago :)

Today I will try to finish a new illustration at least, so nothing else for today! Have fun and tomorrow more :)!!

Mushroom case

New traditional illustration!. Again my dear pencil colors...

This mushroom is like a bookcase to enjoy reading, very practical ;). I'm sure to read on top of it can be really comfortable.

Yesterday was a very busy day (in many ways! so embarrassed and nervous... but you guys were so kind... thank you.)! That's why I couldn't post anything here... I ended very tired at the end, but with a lot of energy, and motivation. I'm sure I can keep going even if it takes me time, I'm more positive. Look forward and to life present!! :).

It made me realize how lucky I'm of what I have and who I am. I already knew it, or people said it to me, but it's always good that someone reminds it to you once in a while. I got out of there more positive and loving what I do more.

Also, I met really lovely people there! I hope I can keep contact with them and to see what
the future has for us ;)

More news about it in the near future. See you tomorrow!!

Last Friday was I Fiesta Patillera, organized by Sus Pasitos. I designed and assembled some badges as presents for their visitors with their logo and one of them with an original illustration made by me.

That day I tried to help as much as I could, and I even helped in one of the workshops that were celebrated there, specifically, one of paint organized by Eva Cano Castiñeira.

I meet lots of kids, and it was great to explain and to help them with their handicrafts (to create a chameleon with a wooden clothespin and cardboard). It was great to see how every kid decorated their own clothespins, with many colors and designs. But there was one kid that was coloring it all green. That's how this story begins.

He started talking to me about his little chameleon, that he wanted it to be well done, so that's why it was all green. I told him that it was very pretty, and I started explaining to him how to make his eyes with clay, but he wanted to draw them better. He was scared his eyes would be too big...

-Don't worry about that!! Chameleons eyes are very big! They can move them a lot to look around, and they can even look behind and above them.

-And can they look into space and look for planets and rockets!?

-Sure they can!

Why not? That's what I love about children...And that's how we started talking about his chameleon. Then he decided to start drawing many dots to it.

- And how will you name him?

- I'm going to name him... "Lunarcitos"!

Here is a photo of his chamilion, not completly finished.

So cute :)!! Then he started to tell me about his story, that he could talk, how he got his paws hurt by a shark, that he couldn't walk very well...

- But, is he happy?

- He is!!

- That's good!! That's what matters!

That little time with D (let's call this little boy like this) was great. He was very imaginative and talking with him made me feel like a child that again believed everything was possible and fun. He said he wanted to be an artist in the future, I'm sure you will be a very good one!!

I drew the illustration you can see above all this post very fast, and it doesn't make Lunarcitos justice, but I couldn't resist to draw your chameleon, D. Thank you for telling me about him. I loved to hear his story from you. I had a lot of fun! My best wishes for you and your family :)

Long post for sure, but I had to tell you about this little boy that impressed me.

Nothing else for today! Have fun and tomorrow more!

Step by step

Old sketch done in my Moleskine with gouache! I wanted to practice with thin layers back then. I don't know why my Moleskine accepts better thinner gauge than watercolor itself... I actually use almost the same amount of water for both techniques... what? I love the soft colors!

But I have good news!, so don't worry, this will be a happy post! This little girl just needs to practice a little more, step by step ;).

Tomorrow is party time!! I'm invited to a party celebrated by Sus Pasitos (here is their Facebook), you can know about it here (both in Spanish!). I'm collaborating with them with a present for the people there :). I was really happy when they proposed me to participate with them... thank you, I had lots of fun! You were really kind to me! My work is ready for tomorrow, I can't wait for tomorrow (even more after saying, "in the shade", a little of how it was being organized :)! I'm sure it will be perfect!!

So, have fun! I don't know if I will post something here tomorrow, so, see you!

Whale sketch

It's the sketch of one of the illustrations I finished coloring with pencil colors. I love this little one, it was so fun to draw... I will show the finished version soon :)

I love to sketch and plan illustrations. This one, started as a very little sketch, and at the end I decided to give it color. I love to draw little sketches everywhere. I always have with me a little sketchbook or every time I have an idea I can capture it as soon as possible. For example, there I have some new cups waiting to be colored ;)

One of my teachers while I studied photography, really liked my small sketches. He told me it was impossible for him to draw so many little details. I prefer small illustrations, I can lose myself in them really fast, so relaxing!

I have many sketches to finish, now I need to find time to start coloring them... but I'm sure before that I will start sketching some new and I will end whit more to finish... well, too bad!

Nothing else for today! Have fun and tomorrow more!!

Gardener hedgehog

I created this little one at the same time I sketched some of my animal-object... though this one isn't exactly an object, but a hedgehog-bush :). This hedgehog is sweet and loves to grow flowers on his back. He won't hurt you if you touch him, that's the way he wants to be!!

Nothing else for today!  Have fun and be yourself ;)

Tuesday, 26 November 2013


This is the illustration I used for my About.me account. I thought I already posted it here... my bad!

Busy week for sure (and the next one will be more or less the same)!!, but I'm happy with it. I have many ideas for things I would like to start drawing, but duty is first ;). I hope I can write about it soon!!

Have fun today!

Saccharine power!

One of my cup series again!!! This one fights with saccharine!

I have been sketching more of them, now I need dome time to finish them digitally... but I'm very busy these days (which is always welcome)!. That's why I couldn't post anything here yesterday :(, but I will try to keep my old rhythm little by little...

So, have fun! and see you tomorrow ;)

About photography

This photo was made in class, together with my classmate
Nisicrita. They gave us a "word"and we made a photography
like if it were an image to publicity a product. In this case "line"

I decided to study photography because of I really enjoyed it in my Illustration studies. There, I learn to see the image with a different perspective, and learn from observation about color and perspective, but I knew, I had a feeling, that I could learn more about it.

Also, photography is being a hobby I really enjoyed before starting my Illustratration studies, just that I centered it in a more..."familiar way". I loved to take photos of my friends, and film them (till the point they got tired of me).

So, I decided to give it a chance. I knew I would have studied it sooner or later, so why not then?. There, I learn in depth a lot that now is helping me a lot in my illustrations, like the effect that lighting can have on the environment, how can it be affected the weather, hour of the day, place, objects around... Those little things that can create a difference in an illustration.

There was also, in the second year, an as signature where we were told about a photography project and we needed to develop it from the start to final photographies. I really enjoyed the sketch stage! I loved to capture my ideas in the paper. My teachers knew I would go to them the next day with a pile of sketches. I think I sketched and worked on my idea more in Photography than when I was studying illustration (showing them here is useless if you don't see the final photo).

Something that impressed me back then was the need to work with people (when this not necessarily exist in illustration, where you can work in your place, look for references in books or the internet (if you need to draw a tiger you can look for images or even go to the zoo, but if you need one for your photo you will need to be NEAR it, and what it involve), finishes the illustration with guidance and send it. I'm sure that there's other cases in which their work need more help, but I'm talking generally about illustrations for books).

For photography you need to move around a lot, to look for models (sometimes a dear classmate could help, but for others it was impossible), you need to buy clothes, accessories, to decide beforehand where you want to take photos and to ask for permissions if needed, even decide the hour you can start and to finish (in case of outdoor sessions). With photography you depend a lot in other people, but not only in people like the models, you also need assistants for reflectors and lighting, you need to take care of the model (is it cold? are they hungry? do they feel comfortable? ...). In some cases, you need to travel... so you need to get a car at least and to spend money on gas and be prepared to buy food or for any unexpected event...

Later, once you take them, you need to select the best ones and retouch them. What if the one you finish your client (in case you have one) doesn't like them? If you don't come to terms, maybe you will need to start from zero, or the client will go to look for someone else (of course, it also happens in illustrations, I think it's obvious)

If you love photography you will enjoy it for sure anyway :)
Thanks to photography I learned that I loved teamwork, to get advantage of what everyone was good at and adapt yourself to the others (and the contrary), to create something unique and special. Surely it was easy because of all my classmates were lovely, there was a good feeling in our class, I'm really proud I was part of that, they are the best :)

There're more things I would like to tell you about Photography, but this post is long enough! so maybe next time! See you!

Yummy Sketch

Today I'm busy! so this post is a little late!!

It's a sketch I made some days ago. I'm coloring with pencil colors really slowly, in my spare time, but it's going slowly, just to relax! I'm really enjoying them, but to finish illustrations with them take a long time, because I love using them very very softly and slowly, to be sure I get the color and texture I want (and feeling of course!) It's almost therapeutic in some way :). But now I have some pending works that don't leave me time to use them!

Nothing else for today! Tomorrow I will be out, and I'm not sure if I will get any time to post here, so have fun and enjoy your almost-here weekend :)

Hungry bat

Today's post is late, sorry!!

I drew it on Halloween, a little bat that loves to eat garlic, why not? I had a lot of fun while drawing it with pencil colors :)

Busy day! no time at all, but I need to make up for lost time, but I can do it!!

Tuesday, 19 November 2013

Picnic time!

I have sketched this illustration this summer and it's been on in my computer finished till now.

It reminds me of how will be today... food is involved and will be some guests (not ants of course!). Surely this week will kill me!! In one way or another. I want it to finish as soon as possible (and tomorrow another thing! just great :(, when do I draw?).

At least, lets do our best little by little like these ants, they're so hard-working! Have a good day!

Monday, 18 November 2013

Sugar love

One of my "cup series" again! :)

This week will be hell... responsibilities. And last week I couldn't draw as much as I had liked, but I got work advanced, at least. Once this week ends I will get time again!

See you tomorrow! Have a nice day!

[Book review] Babayaga

A book again!, this time, this book is about Babayaga, and it's illustrated by Rébecca Dautremer, a french illustrator I adore for sure. I met her works before Benjamin Lacombe's.

Actually, this is one of the last books I got (it was a present), but it was originally published around 2003, if I'm not wrong. I always wanted to get this book, but I never found the chance.

It tells the famous story about Babayaga witch, and her big hunger. The text is written by Rébecca's husband, Tai-Marc Lethanh. He participates in many of her books (I have a few), and these are always written humorously, some of then are even a little surrealistic. His writing style reminds me of what a kid would think while reading the book, or being the principal character. A good mix for sure that creates a "new" story or vision, of this book.

What can I tell you about Rébecca's illustrations? They are beautifully done, very detailed and textured. Some of them look like out of a dream. I like how she adapts her style a little according to the story, I love that fact about her. I also love her concepts, the way she uses the format, and how she interprets the text. I think the fact of being a mother helps her a lot with her work (even if she has some work that are destined for a young audience).

If you like the illustration world, you will love it for sure. Her work is very detailed, and you can see all the effort she used in it. I love Babayaga's big design, and her personality in this book. I also love those little illustrations you can find between the text. I think one of the aspect I like the most about this book is its setting and the use of colors.

Again a really big book: 24,5 x 36,5cm, I just wish I had a beautiful place to show it :(

I bought months ago a book I really love about her, and also other of her works I really love! but it's enough for today. Have fun and tomorrow more ;)!

Friday, 15 November 2013


Again a commission, this time for a photographer friend :). I drew her with part of her equipment to take photos.

I'm very busy right now, so nothing else to say today! I have some works left to do that take all my time!

Have fun! ;)

Wood mother

Old sketch from my first Moleskine done with graphite. Trees are growing up from her shoulders and their leaves are her hair.

A lot of digital illustration these days! I just hope everything will turn out right! I will try my best with this work!

Have fun and see you tomorrow!

Wednesday, 13 November 2013


Illustration done with pencil colors. I wanted to draw a little girl playing in the meadow, but without shoes. It was fun to do! :)

Nothing else to tell you about, just that I keep trying to find time to finish some pending works as soon as possible, just as always, but I'm doing my best!.

Have a nice day and tomorrow more!

Redhead prince

This is the companion/partner I drew for this illustration I posted here last week :). His cape was fun to draw! But also tedious...

If you have any idea of how to stop time, tell me please! Today  is going to be a busy day in my house and I don't know if I will get time to draw at all. I will try it, if even a little... I hate those days when you want to do things but all around you is trying to stop you :(

Hope you have a nice day! See you tomorrow!

Monday, 11 November 2013

Relax cup

A relaxing cup, that's what I need right now :)!

My little cup series... so fun to draw... I want to draw more of them (I already have a few sketched, though they are not colored), but I'm very busy right now with other things! Sometimes I wish I knew about yoga, I think it would be helpful for me :(

Have a fun (and relaxed) start of the week!! Energy and peace :).

[Book review] The Butterfly Lovers

French and original edition of the book

"The Butterfly Lovers" was, if I'm not mistaken, the fist Illustrated book I bought from Benjamin Lacombe.

It tells the story of an intelligent girl called Naoko, whose father wants her to learn good manners in Kyoto, for when he decides to marry her. She goes there, but decides to dress up as a boy to study literature. In Kyoto she meets a boy and both fall in love... that's till she is forced to marry someone else.

I can't remember exactly how I got to know about Benjamin, but when I did, I decided to order this book in a bookstore (in Spanish). My surprise was huge when the bookseller brought me a book of great size (it's 27x39cm!!) I was speechless for a moment because of I had no idea of its real size, but that big!?.

After trying to assimilate it, I loved the fact of its size. The illustrations were huge and you could see every little detail. I loved it from the start. It welcomes you with a pretty die cut that shows the next illustration as if it were a window.

The rest of the illustrations (most of them full page) inside are beautiful, with a little vintage touch and oriental feeling I really love. The text is fast to read, as the importance is in the illustrations. Also, I think this book is more for young people or adults who like art or illustrations, because of its quality and size.

Since then I have bought, once in a while, one of his books. Most of them are that big, and it makes me to love and to hate them at the same time. These books themselves are like a canvas paint, which you can show their covers as a piece of art. I wish I had more space in my house, and a big bookshelf to keep and to show them, because they are really beautiful. But for now it's impossible :(

It's one of his earlier works, but his newer's are just as beautifully and detailed done, some of them with very interesting.

I will try  to tell you about some of his books in the future, some of my favourite. See you tomorrow!

Welcome home


"Welcome!" would tell you this elephant-house ;).

It was one of the designs I dismissed from my little objet-animal series (another one I made and that I posted here was this), but that I felt like coloring it anyway (I need time to plan more  for this series and to color them).

Have fun, and don't forget your home is always waiting for you ;).

Look sideways

A sketch from my old Moleskine. I like to try different styles according with my mood, and even if it's a little old now, I felt like it was the right moment to show it to you!

Today is cloudy and a little cold (what, I'm sensitive to cold...), but I'm not in a bad mood at all!! I feel like I want to work as much as I can!. Also, right now I'm surrounded by really nice people, and that's great to cheer up!! ;)

Hope you have a nice day! The weekend is almost here :)

The Lion

It's one of the first pencil color illustrations that I have been working these days. A little boy dressed up as a lion.

At the end, yesterday was a non stop day! Half of the day taking photos outside and the other half was indoors. It was fun, it was like I was studying photography again. But I forgot how tired a photo session can be... But lots of laughs and that's what matter :)

This afternoon I need to keep drawing, as today I couldn't. Have fun and see you tomorrow!!

Redhead princess


I drew this illustration at least a month ago. It was so entertaining to do I drew this redhead girl a partner after finishing it. I will try to show you this other  next week ;)

I will programme this post, as tomorrow (5th November), I will be out with a photographer friend taking some photos, a little indoor photo session. It's been long since last time I went out with my camera, so it will be fun! Maybe my sister will share this on Twitter at least for me.

I've everything ready to continue working with some new digital illustrations these days, I won't have time to be bored ;)

See you!!

Monday, 4 November 2013

Fast breakfast

Another illustration of my "cup series"! This time, a glass of chocolate milk running... maybe to work, to class? I think I will add new characters little by little to this series ;)

Today I'm busy. I hope at least today I can start a new illustration, but it looks like it will take time :(

Have fun and see you tomorrow!!

Color pencils


These days I have been drawing a lot with pencil colors. It had been a long time since I used them so much!

Because of my cold (I'm almost fine right now!), soon I got tired to be in front of the computer, so to entertain myself, I decided to sketch a little and to color it with pencil colors. At the end, I spent all my afternoon coloring, and part of the next day. The day after that I decided to try another more detailed, and so. Now I have finished a few I really like.

Wip of one of these illustrations.

I forgot how much I enjoyed drawing with pencil colors when I was a child, how I don't care how long it takes me to finish. I love to mix colors to get the exact tone I want, and to give the drawing volume. The difference now is that I'm playing with at least two different brands, and for the one I'm working with right now, I plan to add to the mix a third one.

I can't stop using them! I really like traditional art :). As soon as I publish this post here I will continue with the one I started yesterday. I will show them soon. I think next week will be more digital again, but I will try to use pencil colors more often from now on ;).

See you tomorrow!

Little walk

Fast digital illustration to play with colors.

These days I'm drawing some traditional illustrations, and I'm having a lot of fun! Can't stop right now! :) I will try to tart a new one today.

Hope you have fun!

Brownish girl

Digital illustration for today! I love brownish colors :)

It seems today I'm feeling a little better, I'm not as hoarse as yesterday, if only a little, so that's something good. I just need to rest a little more and I will recover soon. Now, with pencil colors again!, I finished two illustrations with them these days. I will show them here soon.

Today's officially Halloween day in my country! Have fun, those who celebrate it :)
