Making my own path.. in comics

Long time ago... I wanted to make comics and finally I decided to begin that path. Maybe you did notice that I have been away from the internet.. and this is because I have been workin on my projects of comic and illustration about a year and a half ago, it was a tough year for me in many aspects, trying to keep some jobs while I work on my stuff, but despite these troubles I want to do this the rest of my life knowing that it is not an easy task, I unlocked that quest and I have to complete it no matter what, so in order to do that I found that a patreon campaign could be the best way, hoping that this thing works for me, it is a bet, I know, but I am putting all my hopes and expectations on it.

I have been working on many projects for different companies, making a lot of things, not only the illustrations that I posted here but also storyboards for animation, backgrounds, layout, etc even writing and directing art teams; and now I know that making, animation, comics, even illustration projects are better when you have a good team, So now I have a good one made of professionals, friends with awesome skills and they are supporting my personal projects, helping me to write, design, and a lot of other things that I can't do by myself, shaping together every aspect of those ideas I am working on to do it as best as we can.

So now I will be posting more content about the Patreon campaign, ¡but don't worry!. I am not kidnaping the artworks, even the comics will be public to read and share, and I hope you like what I am making, because it all depends on you guys, I mean, I hope my stories and ideas can be of your taste. By the way, there is a thing that bugs me, and it's the art style, because the first comic is kinda "manga-like", I think every project and story deserve its own approach and style so I always keep it that way because is also fun to do, being an author is a bit risky because is not my usual "Fantasy art" but as I sad before, I am also working on a illustration project which I am doing at the same time, and it is about Ancient Creatures and magical beings that I always wanted to do and they need to be painted like fantasy art.

To end this post, I want to tell you that I am making most of my new artworks in the traditional way. Why? well, It is a matter of taste and health. When I started to paint I did it with watercolors, acrylics, and gouache, and I learned that way, wasting paper, ruining canvas and started again when things did not work, and I appreciate that harder times, maybe because I am old. so.. talking about that, yes I'm old, and I have to take care of my eyes my arm and my back, and the computer is killing me slowly, that's it.

Thanks for taking your time to read my story have a nice day!!
