Spider Invite by TX-aster
Spider Invite
This illustration was turned down together with the overall campaign that followed. Made in tree work days, and made me very nervous to have to paint a close up, as it makes every detail mater.
Obviously the card our friendly neighbor Spidy had a massage, but as a game I'll let the download option and you guys can use it as you like. It would be kind to link and credit my DA account, and I promise I'll not totally gutter you if you don't... just gutter a little.

Cirio 2014
In my town there is a huge religious celebration every October's second sunday. And is usual at my work that the creation department does a little game of who makes de events shirt for the company. I actually won last year and they made it into our shirt ^^

The correct spelling is Círio (but the "í"  is not supported in deviant titles), and is the biggest annual catholic event in Brazil, one of the biggest religious celebrations in the world. I found no video in english but you can see some footage here:…;
It sums up as a big celebration for virgin Marry, Jesus' mother, that goes on for days.

An illustration made for a cable company's marketing campaign I made last year. Sorry for the late post.... I have no excuse besides being a lazy bum. I'll post on other illustration made for work, but ended as a rejected idea -_-
I also have a project made for a Classical Music Foundation in my town, unfortunately as it's for a special occasion for the Music Foundation I'll only post it next month, after the outcome gets public.
Yeaaah... work work work =]

I'd also add that, as you may see, I haven't signed the illustration as It was sold for comercial purpose, and right of usage in general. So, do NOT use it in any way as I am posting it just for portfolio showcase. Even if you post it else where without commercial reasons, I may be safer to link my deviantart as well for crediting.
I've been busy all over the year end at this point (as any normal human being you assume I am) I am dead tired. Not "bad" tired but... needing to do nothing for some time. The sad part is, It wont happen. This month in particular has been a particular draining one, financially and time consuming. I haven't got the time to cut my hair yet. CUT MY F*KING HAIR. I can use ponytail by now, and as my beard grew large if I dress accordingly I could pass as a Homeless man or a Drifter.

So many things, so little time... I don't like to complain -_- but Those are some of the reasons I had so little activity here in DA this end of year. And I REALY want to have time to dedicate my self into improving my paintings, I only hope next year I get some time to do things. 

And for any fellow devianrartist here I have to say, I am still painting and will finish and post my paintings as soon as I am able. But as I have roughly 1-3 hours per week for painting it's taking long for the paintings to come as I want them to be (perfectionist much?).

(Last night I had to take care of a clinically depressed teen cousin because he ended with his 1 month girlfriend, and had about 3 hours of sleep before waking up and have to work)

And here is something:

Just a random nice guy. Whenever I feel angst, sadness, anger, etc, I used to sketch some random creepy horror monster/scene. Needless to say I made some heavy sick drawings in my teens. (ballpen in the back of a print test wile my computer was loading).

And here is a Tiny little preview of my ongoing painting for
I ams sadly taking long to finish it but in hopes it turns out nicely.
