I spend all day long at work drawing with a Cintiq so I usually go home and draw with traditional media. I normally use and mixed whatever I can to make it work.
This weekend I went back to an exercise that I really enjoy and got inspired a while ago by Marcelo Vignali and my good friend Brett Bean. I spot interesting people on the street and try to analyze them: I look for body shapes, cloth patterns and colors, props or whatever I can describe that person with and the most important I try to observe their mood or at least create a story behind them.
I then go back home and see what are the most iconic elements that are still on my mind and play with them.
For these I used Prismacolor and Copic markers, ink for the blacks parts and colour pencil to give accent to specific places. It is a really fun exercise plus I love getting out of the computer world.
Hope you like it!

Hi people! It has been a while. I've been busy with a new project and trying to get home and keep practicing. Here a fun exercise I did with really quick drawings and using as little as I could, so I basically used the Noise filter from Photoshop to create the cloth textures. I modified a little using the tools PS provided us.

Today I am posting a few pages of designs I did on 'The Angry Birds Movie'. If you want to see more of the art I did for this movie you can visit my website here.
Hi people! It has been a while. I am cleaning this blog and actually wanting to use it again as a blog and separating it from my website. I think I am almost done doing all the prep.
While I was on The Angry Birds Movie as part of the team of Character Design, I was put also in charge as an Animation Supervisor for the 2D sequence of Mighty Eagle. I was sent to Finland to work with Rovio Finland team to work on this nice piece. To see and read more of this great project you can go here: https://www.luisgadea.com/angry-birds-2d-sequence/
I hope I can be constant on the posts.
