"Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistible grasp?"
(Learning to Fly - Pink Floyd)
Third illustration for the magazine...

Another erotic illustration for the Swedish magazine. This time, a gorgeous police stopping an absent-minded driver. And, yes, the man's face is an homage to Glenn Fabry's cover for Preacher #4 (I've always loved Fabry's facial expressions, so I used it and put the copyright on the t-shirt as a logical joke!)

Some time ago (oh, my God: it seems that everything happened too much time ago) I was hired to draw a few erotic illustrations for a well-known Swedish magazine. I drew -and they were published- 6 of them. You have seen one of the bunch here. Now I have found some of them in an old CD. The scanning was not very good, so the reproduction is not faithful to the original. But it is the best way I can show them.

Well, this is a quick convention sketch I did some time ago for a spanish site called Los Manuscritos Perdidos. By the time I was doing Rogues!, so I drew Bram and Weasel posing for my friend Oscar. It was a four-minutes-sketch, with no blue-pencil line.

Some of you have asked for the illustration from the very first post of this blog without the text. Here it is. Ghost Wolf in all his brilliance and fierceness. The original character design came from Siku, but I felt terribly comfortable drawing him in my own style. I really I like the three-dimensional sense of this drawing. I hope you do as well.

This one is one of the first examples that I sent to the publishers to show my artwork. Probably about 1994-1995, and it's Totally drawn in pencil. I drew it on 2 oblong A4 and took advantage of this size to draw little details as the hair of the girl, Conan's axe or the scaly skin of the monster.
I sent the original ones to the publishing house and I only kept a photocopy of the work, where there were lost the majority of these details. But what is worse: the two a4 were not fitting good and you can see the shade that appears where they join, as well as certain twisted image... Anyway: I got the job.

Jaime Brocal Remohí was one of the greatest spanish comic-book artists. He was one of the very first artists to draw Sword and Sorcery comics. Some of his characters has been the most powerful visions of Heroic Fantasy: Katan, Ögan, Kronan, Arcane, Taar...
I was lucky because I met him in several occasions and we talk about comics, drawing styles and music (he was a terrific rock'n'roll fan). Also, my brother was collaborating with articles in Taar's last spanish edition and I was asked to do an illustration about the character in a special number. And this is what I did... 11 years ago!

More from Elder and Roc. Some time ago posted a couple of pages. Now I'm showing other two. The plot was really fun to drawing, and I enjoyed a lot with both main characters, 'cos they were like a Tarantino's vision of Hyborean heroes.
Probably one of these days I'll draw a pin-up about them only for my own enjoyment.
