I agree with everyone... this is just priceless! beautiful work and detail, colours and composition! VERY inspiring!

How do you start each illustration? Sketches, or...do you paint right away?

Erwin Madrid said...

Hey Thanks guys!!! I appreciate it:)
I can't wait until I get a copy too!

Abz - I always start with a simple thumbnail pencil sketch, then I start blocking it in right away in photoshop to get the values and colors right. Then I break down each panel with more detail.

Rawls - I think this will be available through Amazon France but I'll follow up with a post later next month to let everyone know where they can get a copy. I don't know if it will ever get printed in English, I guess it depends on how popular it is, but I never do like the english USA versions because the printing is always crappy and soft bound instead of hard.

Jeez dude your work is incredible. I thought you were painting these in a computer but I see you're using some sort of cel paint. Fantastically animated characters and super strong compositions. I hope you have great success with your publication.
