It seems to me that deviantart is slowly dying because of tumblr and twitter. It is easier to have way more exposure for your art over those places than here. I see more and more artists who used to post stuff here that are forgeting about their DA accounts in favour of their tumblr and twitter. What do you think?

Yep!! I decided that it was time to jump into the future and create a tumblr account!! I see that it is what most of the people is using as a blog,so....why not? Long time ago I used to have a blogger blog but well...it seems like nobody uses blogger anymore! So yeah!!! I have to update it with stuff and a more attractive appearance, but for now, just go there and be sure to follow me!!! I will be uloading some more rough stuff than the things I upload here,like non finished sketches, pencil drawings, step by steps and all those things!!!
Cheers!!!!

The marketing people did this funny crossover between AB SW 2 and GTAV. I guess that everyone is right now walking around Los Santos,right?
Anyways,there you can see some of the characters I created for the game. Not all of them! Remember that we have more than 30 characters and there will be more in the comming months!!

Cheers!!!

And remember!! AB SW2 will be out on thursday!! Ok ok, you canīt stop playing GTAV but....can you play in the bus? Can you play while waiting for your gf to get ready?NO!!!! And those are the perfect moments to play ABSW2 in your iOS or Android device!!

Hi guys! 
I am almost sure that most of you have already seen the AB SW 2 trailer online, and I really hope that you are excited about it!
As the Lead Artist of the project, I feel very proud of the job that the whole team has done (and we are still doing since there is a lot of work to do until September 19) and I am sure that you will enjoy it! Be ready for a lot of new characters, new locations and high quality graphics!!! We have been working very hard to delight and surprise all of you!!

Here is the trailer!



Cheers!!

I received my fantastic Cintiq 22HD couple of days ago with an ergotron arm. Great! When everything was in place and I was about to plug it to my laptop......DAMN!!!! My laptop doesn´t have a DVI port!!! I thought that there should be an adapter to VGA inside the box.....NO!!!!THERE IS NO VGA OR HDMI ADAPTER INSIDE THE BOX!! SUCH AN EXPENSIVE THING AND THEY DON´T PUT ONE OF THOSE CHEAP THINGS INSIDE THE F*CKING BOX??? So I had to search all around Helsinki somewhere to buy one of those adapters.Bad luck...I couldn´t find it anywhere...so I had to buy them, both DVI to VGA and DVI to HDMI (just to try which one gives me the best results) on eBay.
So yes....now my cintiq is there waiting until I receive those adapters next week....
Bad luck!


Cheers!

As the title says,sorry guys for the lack of updates lately in my gallery. It has been crazy at Rovio these past couple of months. I am about to receive my new Cintiq 22HD together with an Ergotron arm, so I am sure that I will be updating this thing pretty soon!!! Stay alert!!
By the way, if you are,like me, one of the millions of fans of the pigs from Angry Birds, remember this date: September 27. you are going to love Bad Piggies.Seriously  ;)

Cheers!

Hey guys!
Just wanted to ask you if you are enjoying the new update that we launched couple of days ago for our game AB Space. Do you like it? If you reaaaaaally  hate the graphics...then I am the person to blame!! :)
Now keep playing!!!

Hi!

I  have been working with this new cintiq model for the last couple of weeks. Thanks to an agreement between Rovio and Wacom I have been able to try the new device before its release date. I am not going to dive into the tech specs, but I just want to share my feelings...well...I´ll buy one for my self as soon as possible...that is self explanatory I guess!! The feeling of it is great,it really feels like drawing on a canvas when you get used to it. The surface is not as thick as its predecessor in my opinion and the quality of the display has been increased A LOT. Now the colors are much more vivid and real,the screen is much more brighter and the overall experience is that it is a great improvement in the series. the only bad thing that I could point out is the stand,which is a little bit uncomfortable in my opinion, but the model I have been working with is supossed to be a prototype, so that could have been changed in the final product.
After been working with it,I can even say that the price (quite high) is the right one for such a great tool.
It won´t make you a better artist, but it will make you draw even more, because it is a pleasure to use!!

-A

We released some days ago the latest addition to the Angry Birds Space universe, the sweet planet Utopia. What do you think about the art style in this one? Do you like it? Do you think that it is better than the previous ones?
Thanks!!

I am really excited for the Nintendo press conference (well...as always), I want to see what new footage they show of some new IP for WiiU,and also wondering if they will show some footge of a new Zelda as they did back in the days with Twilight Princess (do you remember that moment when the music from Conan started to play and then they revealed the new Zelda game?That was one of the most epic moments I have enjoyed as a gamer).
I am pasting here some predictions from one of  the producers at Rovio.

Nintendo: Wii U $300. Launches in Oct with Pikmin 3 and New Super Mario.

Kevin Butler announce Playstation All Stars on stage.
Vita gets Assassin's Creed, CoD and GTA5. PS1 games. PS3+Vita
gimmick.

No new console from Sony or Microsoft, but a major cloud gaming
announcement (probably OnLive+Sony for PSN Plus).
Valve announces Steam TV box, Apple announces Apple TV box at WWDC.

I haven´t read the books previously, but I am enjoying this series a lot (maybe because of that...who knows!). Incredible plot,awesome twists, fantastic casting...the only thing that I don´t like is that I have to wait one week to watch the next chapter!!!!Damn!!

I did a step by step some time ago for the magazine Digital Artist, but I don´t buy that magazine and they never told me if they published it or not. The thing is that is one of my most viewed images in my gallery and I am curious about it. Have you seen this step by step somewhere else?
Maybe I should do a new one with some new techniques I have learn since then.

This is the step by step if you haven´t seen it before,is quite old
