Ends the year. Ends this first episode of Elder and Roc. What your eyes had seen as a human army, now reveals itself as a group of reptilian humanoids. Only Elder, whose eyes are different from ours, could see beyond that appearance and fight them.
Now is the time when I will shake hands with each and everyone of you, and wish you, all my firends, a Happy New Year. Thanks for following this blog.
See you in 2010 --

Ok. I have to press the accelerator to finish showing these pages before the year ends. On one page is the classic disaster from a heroic fantasy gore pushed to the limit, and the next we see Roc findindig the last survivor of the army that was hidden under a large beast.
In the last panel Elder is asking Roc not kill him ... still ... We can see the strange Elder's eyes, and we realize that, hey, he's not blind at all!
Very soon the last page.

Well, my friends. Here I'm showing you another couple of pages about my favorite barbarian: the giant troll with no brain, and the old man specialist in melee combat. Drawings may not be the best suited for the day before Christmas Eve, but I have not time to prepare anything special for these days.
I wish you so much happiness!

Two more pages from Elder and Roc. We can see the skill of an old blind man with his stick and the emergence of the giant troll named Roc. After so long, I still like much this first appearance of Roc, jumping over the cliff. It would look so good in slow motion for an epic movie ...

Third page of the Elder and Roc series. I still realize the amount of detail used in each panel. When now I see the amount of brocaded in the sleeves of grand vizier, I feel a little sorry for the loss of energy and effort involved, especially if we consider that at the time I was drawing 32 complete pages (pencil and ink) per month.
Old times, good times.

When we finished the Mool series (abruptly, I must say, because the magazine changed its format and we had to summarize 16 pages in just 8), my brother and I created a premise for a new series: Elder and Roc.
You have already seen a couple of pages of this first chapter, but this time I will post the whole 8 full pages. The quality of reproduction is medium, as I only can find scanned copies in black and white in a very poor resolution.
P.s:- All the blank space above the first page was reserved for the title and logo...

These are the two last pieces from Engaging the Belial. A struggle between the protagonist and a pirate zombie, and a farewell into the horizon with sunset included.
In the next post, something different.
I'll wait for each and everyone.

This time I brought two illustrations that have been displayed, but now in a better resolution in order to get most of the details. These are two more illustrations for Engaging The Belial. Soon I'll post the last two andit will be time to start with other drawings. Until then, good voyage, my cabin boys!

I've always been a big fan of caricatures. My favorite authors are Jean Mulatier, Jan Op De Beeck and Sebastian Krüger. My style doing caricatures for my friends is more cartoony, but a few times I have tried to make caricatures in the style of these great artists. This is one of them. The sitter was the editor-in-chief of the Comic-book division of Planeta-DeAgostini Editorial, where my brother and I contributed with articles, pin-ups and series such as Sage.
