    I'm a pixel artist with +5 years of experience. I've worked on indie groups the whole time and with indie companies for 2 years. I mainly do props, animations and scenarios, but I have experience doing full art of games. I also have production knowledge. ~~ Working ~~ As positive, I love to have a long list of things to do, I organised myself better looking into all I have assigned. I work from 6.30 am to 2.30 pm, I always love to have the afternoon to play some games and relax, or maybe study or practice. I always tend to share everything I'm doing, even if I had some doubts with it because I believe in the teamwork to be able to reach a final result that looks awesome. I love pixel art, but my main style is realistic. I'm on a path of merging those two. Also love to animate, my main objective is to find the best natural flux to the moving. I spend a couple of years assisting english meetings, but I express myself better writting, even when I still don't domain the language as perfect as I wish. I'm also open to any kind of ideas, even if it's as crazy as they sounds. As negative, I may got trapped on a task and take some difficulties with it, that's when I usually ask for help to the team. I'm shy so I will be quite most of the meeting, maybe add some ideas to a brainstorming, but not too much. I may get anxious of reaching some dates, so I'll probably add more hours to the originals I work. ~~ About me ~~ I'm closer to 30 years and I live in Spain. I love videogames, specially the ones that are a challenge, exploring games and simulations ones. I'm also learning to code C# in Unity and play violin. I have a couple of dream games on planning and I wish to be able to create them someday.

    I am a professional Storyboard Artist and Illustrator with several years of experience in these fields. Regarding storyboard art, I've got a vast knowledge of the cinematic language and versatile 2D skills that make me realize storyboards for animation and live-action in different styles and levels of detail depending on the work's needs. I've also got some bits of 3D skills that may always come in handy! I've also got some concept art skills that are really useful in storyboarding. Currently, I work mainly with Photoshop and Toon Boom Storyboard Pro. During my work, I like to have a pretty rational and reasoned approach when illustrating everything, whether it is Storyboarding, Concept Art, or Illustration. This helps me to deliver very solid artwork but non only that. In fact, this gives me a lot of versatility in terms of style, which can be adapted from project to project very effectively. Why choosing me: ✅ Customer care: I will give you more than expected to achieve a delighted client. ✅ Professional artist: Every aspect of the work will be discussed together and approved by you, and I will justify in detail any suggestions of mine in close communication. ✅The keys of my work method are to communicate frequently with the client to ensure we are on the same page and provide clear and detailed ideas from the drafts to the final artwork. This method helps us save time and have a clear picture of the job as we go through it.

  • Feedback Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular 2D game artist.
