Winter Hyena

  Wow, it´s been a while again. Excuse me again, but life has been busy, VERY busy all these months, and it still is, which is good. I have more work than I can handle, which is something most freelancers are thankful for, and in this time also my personal like has become better, my shape and a lot of other good stuff. Needless to say, I have lots of work to publish here, and a lot more yet under NDA and so on, so here you have a few of them:


   Oh, and I not only came back to Berlin, found a new shiny room in a shared flat, started a relationship for the first time in ages and run a 20 km obstacle race in the forests of Germany (Though Mudder, anyone?), I also attended the wonderful Lucca Comics & Games festival, where I had an amazing time with friends, both old and new. After that, I came back with my creative juices fully replenished and I´m looking forward to start some new personal projects I have had on hold for ages. Stay tuned!

Hiena desde lo profundo

   Greetings from the depths of oblivion. I have to apologize to all the followers of this blog for the long long silence, but for the last year my life has been pretty busy, and not only because of work. Of course I have been working a lot, which is great, as my professional freelance career seems to be doing pretty well, but I´ve been a few other things, like changing my residence to another country, trying to remain fit and keeping my social life alive. Believe me: when your work consists basicly on sitting in front of the computer painting most of the time, that´s NOT easy.

   Saludos desde las profundidades del olvido. Debo disculparme con todos los seguidores de este blog por el largo largo silencio. pero durante el último año mi vida ha sido complicada, y no sólo por el trabajo. Por supuesto, he estado trabajando mucho, lo cual es genial, puesto que mi carrera como freelance parece ir viento en popa, pero también he estado haciendo unas pocas cosas más, como cambiar mi residencia a otro país, intentar seguir en forma y mantener mi vida social activa. Creédme: cuando tu trabajo consiste básicamente en sentarte delante del ordenador pintando la mayor parte del tiempo, esto NO es fácil.

Free Hyena

I didn´t realize, but time goes so fast. Almost one year ago, all pieces fell into place and I left Mercury Steam, where I have been working in three projects during 5 years and a half. It also meant I was leaving Madrid, which was by then something like a second home to me, and lots of friends and good moments behind.

   It was scary, but it was the perfect moment to start to follow a new path: the Way of the Full-time Freelancer. With so many other things I have done, I still don´t believe I had the balls to make the decision, and you wouldn´t  believe how good it feels

Famous Hyena

   Seems like my work in the Castlevania games is still a good reason for people to ask me lots of stuff (I´m lovin' it).

   Parece que mi trabajo en la saga Castlevania sigue siendo motivo para que la gente me pregunte montones de cosas (y me encanta).

German Hyena

  Hi folks! Sorry for the long abscence, but since I came back to Berlin after Christmas, my horrible time management has left me stranded and a bit lost with my regular duties, such as updating my beloved blog. I promise to start uploading interesting stuff soon, or at least as soon as I can find some of my lost discipline. Stay tuned and remember to like my FB page to join in for the next livestreaming sessions!

Hola peña! Perdón por la larga ausencia, pero desde que volví a Berlín tras las navidades, mi horrible gestión del tiempo me ha dejado encallado y algo perdido en mis quehaceres habituales, como actualizar mi querido blog. Prometo empezar a subir cosas interesantes pronto, o tan pronto como pueda encontrar algo de mi perdida disciplina. Estad atentos y acordaos de darle al "me gusta" a mi página de FB para apuntaros a las siguientes sesiones de livestream!

Deviant Hyena

   Well, so I finally decided to upload some images to my all-but-dead Deviantart profile. Now you can follow me there is you want, and it even has a print shop!

   Bueno, pues al final me he decidido a subir algunas imágenes a mi casi difunto perfil de Deviantart. Ahora podéis seguirme también ahí, si queréis, e incluso tiene una tienda online!

La Hiena por la ventana.

    Hey, minions! Just wanted to let you know that I´m about to do a sketch giveaway amongst the followers of my FB page, and it´d not be fair if my blog followers were not included! Please, go to my FB page, press "like" and cross your fingers!

   Hey, esbirros! Sólo quería haceros saber que estoy a punto de regalar un boceto original entre los seguidores de mi página de FB, y no sería justo si los seguidores de mi blog no estuviesen incluídos! Por favor, id a mi página de FB, dadle al "me gusta" y cruzad los dedos!

Scorpions, Phoenix and Hyenas

        The lovely team at AEG just released a small update about the new expansion for L5R, including a couple of pieces of my work:

Hyena from the North

      Hello, dears! AEG recently released its new Xmas l5r set, including this Akodo Clan Champion I had the chance to re-create. As it was a very fast work (as my works are, most of the time), not many steps were recorded, but still I hope you can see how it changes from sketch to final.

     Hola, queridos! AEG ha publicado recientemente su nuevo pack navideño para l5r, incluyendo esta campeona del clan Akodo que tuve la ocasión de recrear. Ya que fue un trabajo muy rápido (como son mis curros, la mayor parte de las veces), no se salvaron muchos pasos, pero espero que podáis ver los cambios del boceto al final.

     Also, a little teaser of what I´m currently cooking in my lonely, cold Berlin nights.

    Y de paso, un pequeño avance de lo que estoy actualmente cociendo en mis solitarias y frías noches berlinesas.

Hiena Condal

    Wow, what a month! I´ve been (and I am) so busy I barely remember to eat. Soon, I´ll not be able to articulate coherent words when trying to talk with a fellow human. Anyway, some weeks ago I had the chance to attend the Kotei championship of L5R in Barcelona; it was a great event where I had the chance to meet other great artists and specially the infamous Drew Baker and one of the L5R art directors, Steve Argyle (plus his lovely girlfriend).

    We had some fun and also the fans were amazing, very kind and I truly appreciate their comments and support about my work. It was a pleasure to sign all those cards while hearing from the players about how they loved the characters depicted in them. You guys give another level of depth to my work!

   ¡La Vírgen, menudo mes! He estado (y estoy) tan liado que a penas me acuerdo de comer. Pronto no seré capaz de articular palabras coherentes cuando trate de hablar con otro ser humano. En cualquier caso, hace unas semanas tuve la ocasión de asistir al campeonato mundial de L5R (Kotei) en Barcelona; fue un pedazo de evento en el que tuve oportunidad de conocer a otros grandes ilustradores y en especial al infame Drew Baker y a uno de los directores de arte de L5R, Steve Argyle (además de a su encantadora novia).

  Lo pasamos muy bien y los fans fueron maravillosos, muy amables y aprecio sinceramente sus comentarios y apoyo hacia mi trabajo. Fue un placer firmar todas esas cartas mientras escuchaba directamente de los jugadores lo mucho que les gustaban algunos de los personajes. ¡Tíos, le dais otro nivel de profundidad a mis trabajos!

Hyenas, pirates and dragons!

    Un par de imágenes para los fans de dos sagas adorables: Shallador Saan de Juego de Tronos, y el primer encuentro de Bilbo y Smaug en El Hobbit. Puede que la composición parezca algo raruna, pero los cuadros de texto y el marco obligan a veces a organizar la escena de manera algo ortopédica.

   A pair of images for the fans of two lovely series: Shallador Saan from Game of Thrones, and the very first encounter between Bilbo and Smaug in The Hobbit. Maybe the composition looks a little strange, but text boxes and frames sometimes force me to organize the scene in a little awkward way.

Hyena of Blood

     I love when an image gets released sooner than expected and I can share it while it´s hot. I love it even more when the AD takes a moment to notify you about it. Sometimes life is bloody nice.

   And the process, or the at least the steps I remembered to save. I swear one day I´ll publish a proper step-by-step tutorial.

Hiena of Thrones

   Hi, beloved pieces of carrion. These are two illustrations I made long ago for the A Game of Thrones LCG; they are more than two years old, I think, so I guess both have been published already.

   Hola, queridas carroñitas mías. Estas son dos ilustraciones que hice hace tiempo para el juego de cartas de Juego de Tronos; tienen más de un par de años ya, así que supongo que están publicadísimas y a nadie le importará ya que las muestre.

   And remember, Winter is Coming.
