Learning to handle the stress

I´ve not been a lot active in my social networks during the last weeks.  Even when i tried hard, strong headaches, weakness, lack of sleep (my body was slept but my mind kept running like a hamster in the cage during nights) and a blue mood didn´t let me to continue my normal routine and put me in some kind of art block mixed with a need of being retired and alone.

In a point, i could recognize some of this issues that i felt before, once when i suffered of burnout syndrome.

We are living a hard moment in my country and even when the art and music help me a lot to keep my mind busy, I'm not exempt of the same troubles that the majority of us have to handle in the day to day: lack of cash, troubles with transportation, worries about the food and a large list that is not necessary to mention.

So, i had to call myself to keep centered.  To feel anguished, worried and stressed is not going to resolve it and by the opposite, it could lead me to be sick and the troubles would be the double.

First thing i did was stopping to see news for a day.  No news, no Twitter.  Just funny memes in Facebook! I laughed hard every time i saw one very funny.

Second thing i did was meditate.  My head was so confused.  The internal dialogue was so intense and that i could not stay focused in anything.  I searched some guided meditations and did my best effort to follow it the first day.  At the end of that day i was feeling in better mood and the headaches stopped.

Next day, i did my vision board.  I put in a board photos of Japan, my favorite J-Rock bands i want to watch in a live, motivational phrases and things i want to accomplished and put it in my desk, so every time i  sit in my desk to begin to draw, i see them and i feel the happiness to have goals that i want to work for it.

I kept adding other things to my activities as listen positive and motivational podcasts and my favorite music to shift my energy when i begin to feel down.

This week i´ve felt in better mood!  My creativity returned, my passion and love for paint is burning inside of me again and i have a lot ideas i want to work on them!

I learned that if we do not take control of our emotions and the way we respond to external stimulus quickly, those are going to control and destroy us slowly.

I wish all of you that are feeling the same emotions i felt for the same reasons, could find the inner strength and guidance to control them.

Keep positive, keep strong! Have a good day, night, morning!

P.S.1 A sketch i did of one of my favorite characters of Dragon Ball, Trunks, in semi realism will be available in my Secret Blog.  Supporters in Ko-fi will get the link to access it! I wish you like it! :D


P.S.2  I am running late with all the projects so please, be patience!  I will be updating the stories soon! ;)

New goal for my Patreon Page

Since i opened my Patreon page, i´ve had a lot of fun sharing with other artists, seeing their works, sharing with the people that support me, sharing my work, etc.


This have been a very nice experience for me because it helped me to be more open to show my work and exchange opinions with other artists.

But i´ve had always the urge to help other artists.  I love to teach others.  I want to share with them what I´ve learned during my years dedicated to illustrations and manga, what I´ve learned about social media on this time and even some leadership experience i´ve  accumulated from my daily job.

So, i will be sharing with my supporters on Patreon, some of my personal materials for doing manga as brushes, screentones, rulers, and i will be doing tutorials and manga lessons for them.

I want to help and encourage those artists with the desire to do their manga / comics stories and they can´t give the first step yet.

I want to give my little contribution to the art through other artists.

More people expressing their ideas, emotions and inner world through images is what can heal this world!!!

Change on page design?



I´m preparing the chapter 9 of "Angel Guardian" and this is the best moment to see if readers want a change!  


So, if you read the stories in any of the sites #webtoons#tapastic #Smackjeeves, i would like to know if you want i keep the design of pages at the traditional way or if you would like i addapt pages to the webcomic format (individual frames in vertical page).


So i opened a poll for it!  Let me know what would you like!  You can find the poll in the following address:


goo.gl/forms/NyGmTwqvML4rcdV12


The poll will be active during the entire week.  I will be expecting for your input!

The callenge for "Angel Guardian" characters.



Speaking of characters with @michellegd99, came a theme song: Y.M.C.A, which became the challenge to draw: make the characters of "Angel Guardian" as the characters of the band looking sexy.😏

 Thus, Kyrsiel is the mason, Gersiel is the Indian Chief, Agramón is the policeman and Ronny is the gangster (who else could be but him!).😜 

The cowboy was missing. There is a character that still does not appear in the story that would have done the role very well ... maybe later I draw the cowboy alone.

 I tried that each character agreed on something with my characters so that they could look more real in their personification. And ... why a demon as a cop? Well, I'm sure he'll be happy to punish anyone who is not well! Hahahahaha😂😂😂

 It was supposed to be just a sketch, but I ended up trying out the marker brush and I loved it! I still have to practice more to take the trick because my tablet does not register very well the pressure for the low memory of my laptop but it is a matter of practicing more!

 I had so much fun with this challenge and I laughed a lot with the stories we were creating with them!

The full size image will be available for my supporters in Patreon

FantArt Finished - Captain Future

I finished ths work today!

I totally enjoy it!

Captain Future is the main character of a very old anime serie of the Toei Animation, based on the characters of an American story.

The guy was not only brave, but just and noble.  I think i loved that characteristics of him even more his abilities and how much smart he was.

I always remember a chapter when he did all in his hands to save a character that kept him since he was a child, when his own parents die.  I think it was the first time an anime almost made me cry.

One of the things i admire a lot of the old animated series is how they did all that without technology. The effects and textures were done by interpretation of the artists.  Every single frame done totally by hand.  That is really love for art!

I am always an entusiast of the progress and technologies and i like to see day by day it is more helpful for art, but as artist i cannot put aside all the effort the old generation of artists did to make great anime series with high quality. I take off my hat in front of them!

The soundtrack of the serie was amazing too!  This song helped me to get the mood to work on the illustration

The full size drawing will be available for my supporters in Patreon.  Hope you like it as much i loved to work on it!

See you in the stars, Captain!
