Character Design


Lately I’ve been working on the character designs of the precuel of Truenos de Tragedia, book I illustrated in 2018. Nevertheless, now I wanted to try on a new style, and finnally I’ve come with a new project: creating a comic based on the book. Meanwhile, I leave here the characters I’ve already designed:


I’ve followed a Character Design Course with Domestika, used it for creating the wonderful characters of two books: The wise men’s fear and Ivanhoe.


I also made the characters of The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins. Here, Laura, whose fortune has condemned her to a live of penuries; Marian, her beloved an loyal half sister who will try in every way to help her; Walter, their drawing teacher, in love with the first and brave enough to try and revenge her from the one who have betrayed her; and finnally Sir Percival Glyde, the mean fiancé of poor Laura.


I am creating my own version of some of Harry Potter´s characters. Here, two illustrations in pencil and coloured. For these I have follow the usual process: a sketch made out trditionally with an animation pencil, a scan of the drawing and color added digitally. I have in mind making the four Hogwart´s founders, but I still haven’t had the time. Looking forward to it thought!

For now, I leave you here Godric Gryffindor and Hermione Granger in a very known sceene of the book. Enjoy!


These examples I will show on the next few days are based on the novel The name of the wind, by Patrick Rothfuss.

To create a character you have to know him first. His personality, the way he talks and moves, his main characteristics. After looking at many references, I started drawing Kvothe´s face. Then I drew his body and movements, and after I added clothes and colours.

The rest of the characters come from a briefing about an alternative future where humans and animals have mixed. Society is sharply divided by the different races: crows, felines, reptiles and raptors.
