Necronomicon VI: Searchers after horror by SantillanStudio
Necronomicon VI: Searchers after horror
English:
"Necronomicon VI: Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places", 2015, conté crayon on paper,  30 x 21 cm.

This is sixth and final illustration for the upcoming K. James Carters RPG “Necronomicon”, and my personal favourite of the whole series. I was very enthusiastic about this book, because I'm a big fan of HP Lovecraft, is fantastic to have a published book related to the universe of The Master of Cosmic Horror.

I didn't had the text in the time of making the illustration,  just some very basic guidelines, so I took inspiration from tales like "Pickman's Model" and "In the Vault". It's not directly related, but those tales helped me to set the style of image that I wanted to achieve.

Español:
"Necronomicon VI: Los exploradores en pos del horror frecuentan extraños y lejanos lugares", 2015, lápiz conté sobre papel, 30 x 21 cm.

Esta es la sexta y última ilustración para el libro "Necronomicon Role Playing Game" de K. James Carter , y mi favorito personal de toda la serie. Yo estaba muy entusiasmado con este libro, porque soy un gran fan de HP Lovecraft, es fantástico tener un libro publicado que está relacionado con el universo del Maestro del Horror Cósmico.

Yo no tenía el texto en el momento de realizar la ilustración, sólo algunas pautas muy básicas, así que tomé inspiración de historias como "El Modelo de Pickman" y "En la Cripta". No está directamente relacionado con ninguno de los dos cuentos, pero me ayudaron a definir el estilo de la imagen que quería lograr.

Virtuoso o Vicioso: Podersos contra el bullying VI by SantillanStudio
Virtuoso o Vicioso: Podersos contra el bullying VI
Español:

Tinta sobre papel y color digital, 15 x 9 cm.

De entre todo lo asqueroso que tienen los bullies, un razgo especialmente despreciable que todos comparten es la cobardía.

Lo recuerdo muy bien de los pequeños criminales que me acosaban cuando era pequeño. Debajo de toda su brabuconería y supuesta fuerza, todos eran unos unos pu**s que lloriqueaban  "¡Yo no te hago nada!", cada vez que los denunciaban o eran sorprendidos en el acto. (y nadie se me ponga políticamente correcto por que he escrito "pu**s", se entiende en que sentído estoy usando esa palabra).

Los abusivos no son fuertes no valientes, ellos son cobardes y resentidos con los padres que no los quieren, asi que si tú sufres acoso escolar, pide ayuda y denuncialos a las autoridades. Tú mereces respeto, y tener una vida pacífica.

English:

Ink on paper and digital color, 15 x 9 cm.

From among all the disgusting aspects of the bullies, a particularly despicable feature that all they share is the cowardice.

I clearly remember that of the criminals who bullied me when I was young. Underneath their supposed strength and bravado, they were just spineless douchebags that always cried "I didn't do anything!" whenever they were reported or caught in fraganti.

Bullies are not as brave nor strong as they want to appear, so if you are a victim of bullying,  ask for help and report the bullies to authorities. You deserve respect and a peaceful life.

The Thing : Zero Day by SantillanStudio
The Thing : Zero Day
English:

Ink on paper and digital color, 18 x 11 cm, 2015.

The diehard fans of "The Thing" (1982) we were all terribly disappointed by the prequel directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. in 2011. Not by the overuse of CGI, though -- granted, looks horrendous -- but by the script itself. Although it contains some few interesting moments, it was just a diluted remake of John Carpenter's masterpiece, without contributing nothing really wonderful.

Fortunately, we can forget that mess with this prequel written by British novelist Lee McGeorge. Bringing back some elements from John W. Campbell Jr.’s original tale, "Who Goes There?", and being faithful to Carpenter’s film, this novel REALLY feels like a prequel, not as a remake.  Lee won’t be making a dollar off with this novel. It's available for free, on epub format and you can download it right now!

About the cover:  Lee and I agreed from the beginning that the illustration should evoke the iconic poster made by Drew Struzan in 1982. Lee had the basic concept, but the idea of including the creature floating like a ghost above the explorers was mine. Originally it should be a blurry handmade drawing, to just suggest the real shape of The Thing , but Lee was so happy with my creature design, that he asked me to make it again on computer to show more details to the readers.

Español:

Tinta sobre papel, acrílico y color digital, 18 x 11 cm, 2015.

Los fans acérrimos de "La Cosa" (1982) quedamos terriblemente decepcionados de la precuela dirigida por Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. en 2011. No por el uso excesivo de CGI - aunque sin duda es horrendo - sino por el guión . Aunque tiene algunos momentos interesantes, es sólo una nueva versión diluida de la obra maestra de John Carpenter, sin aportar nada realmente nuevo ni maravilloso.

Afortunadamente, podemos olvidarnos de ese desastre con esta precuela escrita por el novelista británico Lee McGeorge. Recuperando algunos elementos del cuento original de John W. Campbell Jr., "¿Quién está ahí?", y siendo fiel a la película de Carpenter, esta novela corta se siente realmente como una precuela, no como un remake. Lee no va a hacer un solo dólar con esta novela. Está disponible de forma gratuita, en formato epub ¡y puedes descargarlo ahora mismo!

Sobre la portada: Lee y yo estuvimos de acuerdo desde el principio que la ilustración debía evocar el poster icónico pintado por Drew Struzan en 1982. Lee tenía el concepto básico, pero la idea de incluir a la criatura flotando como un fantasma por encima de los exploradores fue mía. Originalmente debería ser un dibujo hecho a mano un poco borroso, simplemente para sugerir la forma real de La Cosa, pero Lee quedó tan contento con mi diseño de la criatura, que me pidió que lo rehiciera de nuevo en computadora para mostrar más detalles a los lectores.

Si eres fan de los thrillers de conspiración, "State of Sleep" (por su traducción "Estado de Sueño")  es una novela para ti. El libro ha tenido una acogida muy positiva, y cada buena palabra está perfectamente merecida: la trama te atrapa de inmediato, los personajes son interesantes, el ritmo no decae nunca... bueno, ¡mejor echa un vistazo y convencete!

It's so irritating when I come to see my deviantWATCH messages and I find stuff like this: fav.me/d5fkc3h

And she's not he only one, there's hundred of other people posting that kind of things here!

The first question that comes to my mind is WHY THE HELL SHE POST THAT IN HERE???? The site says CLEARLY "community of artists and those devoted to art" not "community of puerile people anxious for show what they buy on internet".

"Deviantart: Where ART meets application!" Jesus, it's the first line that appears when you type DEVIANTART in Google!!

I'm sorry, but I feel very offended when I see that kind of abuses. I want to share my artwork with people, and I want to see other people's artwork; but I DON'T want to see other people's puerilities. That's disrespectful to me, and disrespectful to all the people who makes an effort to create something.

I've see some funny pics with toys and that's fine, some photos are very creative, but it's different to just take a photo and type "this is my new t-shirt". The fact that a shirt may include an illustration is NOT a reason enough for post it in here (if it's not a personal design, of course).

One guy wrote a comment there, exposing this point (well, he made it in a diplomatic way, unlike me), but obviously this lady took it bad, since the comment was removed. That's the worst part, the people feels offended when you mention the subject. And it's exactly for that obnoxious and obtuse attitude that I'm writing this.

There's hundred, maybe thousands of websites out there, where ordinary people can post pics of trivialities: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Myspace, Google+ , you name it,  there's a LOT of options, but this a community especially created for artist, a comunity of CREATIVE PEOPLE. It's SO sad when you recomend this website to other people and they say "Deviantart is for artist, really? I thought it was like facebook!".

NO, ladies and gentleman, Deviantart is NOT like fuk*ing facebook.
So, people, PLEASE, stop uploading trash to deviantart, don't destroy this website.

And just for make it clear, I have nothing against social networks, there's nothing wrong with having a facebook nor twitter. But there's a place for every thing, there's no need to mess a website.

Sweet crispy Jesus! The artwork looks awesome, thanks for share it, old sport. Too bad we can't see all of the concept art, it would be a very cool game. Not only the design, the enviroments and the character animation looks GREAT. And thanks for the link to Hulk Hogan's animated series, I hadn't seen that cartoon in years! I'll definitely make something for Hogan.

Also do you think the Finisher would be a good end boss

Thanks for the videos! I don't understand those hard comments from the people. Brawl looks much better than WWE All-Stars; this is totally cartoon, and seems more entertaining. I'm not sure about the end boss. I think the boss should change depending on the character you choose, and the choices you make in the game, a little bit like an RPG, that would be more entertaining for me!
