This project is based on two illustrations made for Loot CRATE for the Combat theme they did for the month of November. I had a blast working with them, very nice people and understanding, only great feedback from me and I also hope that the audience enjoyed the package as well !!

This is a new project of mine, based on designing new robot characters that are cute and deadly :). As a short introduction and some back story to it, P.A.W. Elite is an infiltration team of robots, each member having different abilities that can complete the team and make it as efficient as possible.
Professor Minamoto, Japanese scientist and robotics expert, designed the robots initially as companions for kids between 5 and 12 years of age, in the mid 2100's. They were supposed to be A.I. robots that could replace some of the tasks that parents couldn't do, like taking them to school, to the park and so on.
The professor was hired by the military to move this project into another direction, of course the kid companion idea was dropped, never came out, millions of dollars spent in prototyping them and marketing was lost. The army paid some of the money for compensation, but not enough, just to cover up all this scandal and shut some people up. So this is how P.A.W. Elite was born after ten years of work and research, unique prototypes were made, each one different and special in his own way.
Kitty was the first made, she was ''born'' in 2163, she is supposed to be the fastest gun in the east. Just for the record, the skeleton of these robots is made out of benditanium, basically titanium that is very malleable and incredibly resilient to gun fire and explosions.
Teddy was in development as well, so after five months he was ready for action. He is heavier than Kitty, a robust robot that could easily crush you in close combat. He also has mounted machine guns on the back, acting independently from the body, a lethal weapon for the ones that aren't engaged in close combat with him.
Bunny was later made, as he was meant to be the captain of the team, his A.I. brain is more intelligent than the other ones, has more tactical experience implemented and team management as well. He is the basic samurai warrior, fast and deadly with the swords. He can also detect invisible enemies, so there is basically no peril that could compromise the team.
Puppy was the last model made, he has a more jolly and childish personality than the others. When he doesn't blow everything up with his missile launchers, you can roughly see him as a ''little doggy''. Be careful how you pet him, his ultrasound emitters can literally blow your brains out.
In the end I think this is the perfect team, the cat's slickness and cunning, with the brute bashing bully from your neighborhood, samurai whits and deadliness and a cute killer bundle of joy.
So I hope you had some fun reading this, I wish you all the best and thanks for taking the time!

Hello fans of the Tolkein world, Lord of the Rings and Mordor !!! I am a big fan of the ''Middle Earth - Shadow of Mordor '' game, I think it is the best game for me, lots of gore and delicious ugliness ( best combat experience ). This project was made as an homage to the beautiful Warchiefs that I could kill or take control for ever. I think they are the best, with personality and great looks :D.
I hope you guys love it as much as I do, comments are welcome and have a good one !!

Hello, hello! I am back from my vacation, doing some new stuff in my spare time. I hope you enjoy this one, because it was a piece that I dropped almost 2 months ago, originally was a man competing in a Pogo stick championship, but it turned out like this.
The story behind Baron Christoph Schwarz is that he is filthy rich 1920's German bourgeois that has a great passion for espionage. He is very bored in his life and wants to make it more interesting by infiltrating military bases, weapons research facilities and so on. The image is practically a get away from a secret airfield made by the Americans who were developing a new type of plane that is very fast, light and good for rush attacks. The Shark it was called, so he hijacked one and want's to get away, just one more tiny american to go :)).
I hope you dig this fairy tale that I made, I really like this piece and the atmosphere , had much fun doing it. Never know what you come up after 2 months, have a nice night!

Detail of the face.
Hello everybody, back with a new black and white story for you. This time I have gone in another direction, I really hope you like this one because I learned so much doing this piece, trying to be even more painterly than before. This guy is a maniac, collects bones of his victims or scavenges for them. Never ever gets involved in a fight, or kills his prey in close combat. He uses poison darts or persuades other to kill for him, never does it with his own hands, he only gets satisfaction in collecting bones for his private interest.
So have a nice night, hope does eyes don't bug you in the night and see you on the next ''episode'' !

Hi guys ! Here is my latest illustration, it is called ''First date''. Now this one was supposed to be a stake out gone wrong, but I have a similar illustration, so I decided to make something funny with a bit of story. So there is alien life on other planets and they are very similar to us, they go to work, make families, babies etc.
The main character is Phil, our friendly alien and his pet cat ( more evolved predator, tamed for a long time by the ancient green tribes and used as a hunting companion, but now it is friendly, cuddly and highly protective) Daisy, are going out on their first date. It is custom for citizens that have pets, to make acquaintance with them on the first night, who knows maybe they will make a family to.
I hope you enjoy this image, had fun doing it and see you later :).
