He has a soulful look. Very fine. Nice use of (photoshop filters?) digital efx.

Un brazo.

Hello Doodlers thanks! but this is not actually a filter or efx. It is just a drawing and then a painting done with a pencil brush in Photoshop.
Actually, it isn't a very sofisticated brush , is a quite basic pencil tool.I found this way of painting very relaxing an nice for various reasons:
It's much cleaner than the actual painting with acrylics or oils.( My flat and computer are full of painting's stains)
It Doesn't smell (I get sick after long hours with classic painting's smell)
And the best of all: THE UNDO option!!!!

I love UNDO option.

the doodlers said...

Here's to UNDO!

The piece is all the more impressive after your explanation. It is clever the way you are blocking out the shapes!

Thank you very much Doodlers!

Me gusta esa forma de resolver la imagen con pinceladas cortantes, muy de boceto pictorico pero impresionante

Maese, aquí el guionista de Miguel Ángel. Coincidimos brevemente en Angoulême y luego no tuve ocasión de felicitarte por lo de Humanoides (si no me han informado mal). Así que eso, enhorabuena.

Of all the blogs, I come to yours Alberto..For sheer joy and exhileration. I love your photographer's eye, your meaty chunks of colour.
