I dreamed a dream
Hey! As I promised, here is the second work I made last week about Les Misérables. The surprise about great acting (and singingLa la la la ) for me in this movie.

With my two favourites actors and characters on paper already, I think I can close this topic really satisfied. Meow :3 

I hope you like it! :D (Big Grin) 

Graphite pencils and coloured pencils on sketching paper size A3.
About 5h work.
Listening to OST Les Misérables and watching the film after.


¡Hola! Como prometí, aquí dejo mi segundo ejercicio hecho la pasada semana sobrela película/musical de Los Miserables. En mi opinión, la gran sorpresa en la película en cuanto a actuación (y canto) se refiere.

Con mis dos personajes y actores favoritos en papel, creo que puedo cerrar este tema bastante satisecha.^^

¡Espero que os guste!

Lápices de grafito y de colores sobre papel de esbozo tamaño A3.
Alrededor de 5h de trabajo.
Escuchando la BSO de Los Miserables y luego viendo la película.

I always admired this talented actor called Eddie Redmayne from the very beginnig and I couldn't help let myself being inspired by him to come back to my portraits of one person.

"Les Misérables" was the excuse this time, a play where him as so many actors proved their talent... and voice. So I feel I cannot close this theme yet. But the next one to do is only on my mind :)

Until then, I hope you enjoy this work on A3 size made with graphite pencils (HB, 3B and 6B) and coloured pencils.
About 5h work.

Listening "Les Misérables OST"


Siempre admiré a este actor llamado Eddie Redmayne desde el principio; tanto que no pude evitar dejarme inspirar por él para volver a hacer mis retratos solitarios.

En este caso, "Los Miserables" fue la excusa, una obra donde tantos actores mostraron su talento... y su voz. Así que siento que no puedo cerrar esta temática aún. Pero el siguiente a hacer está solo en mi mente ;)

Hasta entonces, espero que disfrutéis de este trabajo sobre A3 hecho con grafitos (HB, 3B y 6B) y lápices de colores.
5h de trabajo aprox.

Escuchando "BSO de Los Miserables"

The title is basically a "joke" to tell about my month. Despite the fact I had time to make at least more than one work, I was so busy starting other projects more urgents in my spare time that I couldn't do it.

I haven't been so active here because I didn't even make a thing that I liked enough to upload... till today.

So here I come with my quick version of this movie from my childhood, "1,2,3 Splash": the first 'real' mermaid that I saw on TV and I still love her!

The challenge in this case was to simulate water with a dry technique as coloured pencils. I would do it again to improve as it was so interesting :)

- Graphite pencil and coloured pencils on A4 sketching paper
- 2 days of work, about 6h drawing.
You're the one that I want
Hi y'all!

After a busy time (Split contest included) I got to finish this piece that I started about a month ago. I cannot forget all the movies that raised me and this one is another one really important to me. I love this couple, the soundtrack, the movie... everything^^ so this work was a MUST in my "Valentines2017". I'm being very nostalgic but that's also inspiring to improve and have fun at the same time.

I'm moving into coloured pencils again, and big format (A3) to have plenty of movement.

I hope you like it!! And see you soon!!

Anti-Sliding Puzzle
[ENG] The second original idea was to divide the face from the principal actor in the movie into multiple squares as an unsolved puzzle. The way to display it is using a Sliding Puzzle, that you can solve because of the lack of one of the pieces. But these puzzles are marketed with a circle where that “lost piece” is, in order to keep still the entire puzzle. In this case, we have a puzzle with no chance to be solved because of that piece as a obstacle: the drawing of an open window towards the “freedom”, but it’s not real, it’s a fake illusion. This drawing has been painted by a child, in one important period where this disorder was born to fight against abuses or a traumatic impression.

So if the childhood opens the door to the disorders but is the “exit” as well, that causes a double point of view. That piece is the origin and the way to keep every piece well defined, but also it’s the way to call back the original person, hidden under all those layers of protection that are their personalities.

So in resume, that window/circle piece keeps all these personalities or pieces of the puzzle with no possibility of letting the original person to be him. It’s the way to solve the puzzle in case is removed but it’s also the impediment because it's an important part of that person after the suffering.

Once again, we can feel an annoyance because our mind is trying to join the pieces, as another simile with that person who struggle to keep all their parts/pieces in order.

/So this is the second way to express this topic from the movie. I got more struggles with this one despite of being simpler but I wanted to show it that way, as a child game. Anyway, I hope you like it. :) /


[ESP] La segunda idea original era dividir la cara inspirada en el personaje principal de la película en múltiples cuadrados a modo de puzle sin resolver. Y la forma de encuadrarlos era usando un puzle deslizante, en el que gracias a la falta de una pieza, puedes ir deslizando el resto para conseguir resolver el puzle. Pero estos puzles vienen de entrada con un círculo para completar ese espacio e impedir que las piezas se muevan hasta que la persona que lo use lo quiera resolver. En este caso es un puzle sin posibilidad de ser resuelto a causa de una traba en forma de símbolo infantil que podemos ver en la película. Es el dibujo de una puerta abierta hacia la “libertad”, pero que al ser un dibujo no es real, es una falsa ilusión. Esa falsa ilusión ha sido creada por un niño, en una etapa en la que se originó este trastorno como modo evasión de los abusos o experiencia traumática que experimentó.

Entonces, si la infancia abre la puerta al desorden pero también es la salida tenemos aquí un doble punto de vista. El origen y el desencadenando que permite que las piezas estén desordenadas, pero igualmente la forma de llamar de vuelta a la persona original, escondida tras esas capas de protección que son sus otras personalidades.

Por lo tanto esa ventana abierta origina y mantiene definidas esas partes de ese puzle que es la persona en cuestión. Es la forma de resolver el puzle pero también el impedimento al ser una parte importante de esa persona tras el sufrimiento.

Una vez más, podemos sentir la molestia visual, porque nuestra mente está intentando unir las piezas, como otro simil de lo que esa persona lucha por mantener todas sus partes en orden.

Hi! I'm again here!

This time I try again to write in english because I'm living in Ireland for several month so... it's a "must" to improve my English and come back to my personal space again. I can't promise that I'll work as hard as before but I wanted to share with you other kind of works... :)

A friend of me let me a tablet Wacom to practise digital painting and... OMG!!!! I'm obssesed with this! I just want to try and try with different drawings, usually comics of other person's design.

Anyway, I'm in Ireland above all to work, to improving languages and traveling when the weather leave me do it xD But when I'm off in rainy days I can practise whis this little treasure.

I hope you like my works, but I must notify it... please, you need to be patients with me... I'm just a kind of autodidact. I mean, I'm learning with videos and veeery nice friends.

Thank you all!!! :* :*

I studied Fine Arts in Seville College, specialised in Conservation and Restoration of Heritage, so I left my art behing for some years until Game of Thrones inspired me to try again working on some portraits to text if I still had the gift... And since then I tried to make always some for friends or just for myself. Now I'm moved in Ireland and I would like to work harder in my Art at the same time of my English...^^U (sorry by the mistakes). Thanks to visit my space! Hope you like it!
