Phoenix by David Enciso – Part 2

With the preliminary sketch approved I made 2 comments to David : A darker colour scheme. Darker reds on her costume. Fire surrounding her in a phoenix shape. The colouring moved the sketch to a whole new level. Attention to detail and how the flames are shown are simply amazing. Notice the phoenix outline in […]

Phoenix by David Enciso – Part 1

David Enciso is a Canadian artist, illustrator, concept artist extraordinaire. His website has some of the most amazing samples of his work. Very clean drawings and amazing details in his colouring. I bid on one of his eBay commissions (his eBay id is dextroyer1980 and his items for sale are here) and unfortunately I […]


From a little cafe about 10 minutes from where I live. It doesn’t serve Green Tea Latte but it serves great coffee.

Green Tea Latte

Paris Skyline from Notre Dame – Photo

There’s another project (actually 2 other projects) but still very much in the scripting / design phase. Anyway follow […]

TANGO 8 – Final Submission

This is where it all comes together. Inking and lettering were digitally done. Unfortunately the picture is a little distorted after shrinking to fit the site but the words are still “just” legible. Enjoy!

TANGO 8 – Sketches and Layout

Some of my initial concept sketches for the piece. The top right showed the layout I envisioned for the page. My main aim was to get the woman’s body angle correct. I was lucky that the initial sketch kind of turned out the way I wanted it to. Decided against using the full body in […]
