New stuff!

Hi everyone!

Since I haven't had the time or the energy to tidy up the artwork gallery on this site, I've been uploading some of my recent work to my DeviantArt gallery. Feel free to take a look:

Candy Connect

Hi, everyone!

I know I've been pretty quiet as usual, so I'm just dropping by to show you something that I've been working on.

This is Candy Connect, an iOS game I got to work on some time ago. I was in charge of creating its graphics, and the final result is what you're seeing up there. I'm pretty happy with everything, especially considering it was my first time working on a proper game!

Anyway, it was a super fun project to work on, and I hope I get the chance to work on other games soon!

Candy Connect will be available on the App Store soon.

Sonic the Hedgehog Icons available for download!


Hi, everyone!

I'm just dropping by to let you know that the Sonic the Hedgehog Icons pack is now up for download on my deviantart.com page, here.

Since I didn't have the time to create a proper preview picture (or I'd risk delaying the release even more), here's a picture with all the icons included in the pack:


I hope you enjoy them!

Sonic Icons delay

You may have noticed that I still haven't released the Sonic Icons, despite promising to release them soon after the last post.

Unfortunately, I've had to delay the release due to some important projects I have going on, at the moment. There's a couple of icons missing and I haven't even thought about the preview picture (can't release without one), so I'll wait until I have some time to work on those. I'll try not to take too long!

Announcing the Sonic the Hedgehog Icons pack!

Here it is, the "thing" I wasn't planning on doing, but ended up doing anyway: the Sonic the Hedgehog Icons pack!

Like I wrote last time, this was something that, on paper, made a lot of sense: most of you probably know me as the Super Mario Icons-guy, but as much as I love the Mario games, I'm a much bigger Sonic fan, having grown playing the 16-bit hedgehog classics and loving them to death.

So why did it this long for this icon pack to happen? Well, the truth is that, as harsh as this may sound, the Sonic universe is simply not as iconic as Mario's. If you think about it, every item, character, enemy, power-up in the Mario games is incredibly iconic, simple, and instantly recognizable, even in smaller sizes. I bet almost everyone could draw a Goomba from memory alone. And a Super Mushroom. And a Question Block. And several other items/enemies/power-up/etc. Even as a Sonic fan, I don't think I could even name one Sonic enemy, let alone draw it from memory.

So, what does this mean? It means that I don't believe the Sonic Icons pack will ever have as many icons as the Super Mario one, but I still hope you'll enjoy them!

The good news, for me, is that SEGA doesn't release as much artwork as Nintendo, which means that I have a bit more artistic freedom when it comes to creating the icons. I'm super happy with the results, so far, and hope you'll like them too!

Anyway, the Sonic the Hedgehog Icons pack will be available soon on my DeviantArt page, containing about 20 icons, with more to come at a later time!

Well, this is awkward...

I was just writing a nice post explaining why I wasn't gonna work on a particular project I had had in mind for a long time, but when I started to work on some pictures to illustrate my point, I had so much fun that I changed my mind.

Silly me.

I'll have something more to tell (and/or show) you in a week. I think at least some of you will enjoy this, so stay tuned!

New (new) look!

New version of the site up and ready to go (for the most part, at least)!

I’m starting to think that I spend more time updating the looks on this site than actually posting content on it. Hm.

Anyway, I thought I’d make it look a bit more like my recently-announced new portfolio page, so here it is. Other than the visual revamp, the only thing different about it is the fact that I’m now calling it a “blog.” Why is that? I really have no idea. Maybe it’s just a way to downplay the perpetually-outdated gallery and shift focus to the portfolio thingie. Yeah... that sounds about right.

I’m still trying to figure out whether to keep or get rid of the gallery. I like the idea of having a sort of artwork archive, containing all the stuff I’ve worked on since forever, but the thought of having to update it with all the stuff that is still missing gives me a headache. Gah!

Also, the fact that I’m a very reserved person means that I don’t really like talking about stuff in public, which makes having a blog a silly idea. So yeah. Again, I’ll try to find some interesting things to show you or tell you about, but the number of posts won’t increase dramatically. Sorry about that!

Thanks for reading, take care!

New portfolio page!

Hey, it's been a while!

I'm just dropping by today to tell you about my new portfolio page. I'm still tweaking a few details here and there, and there is still some work missing, but it's completely operational, so feel free to take a look!

This time, I'm using cargocollective.com as a host, and the experience has been fantastic. There are tons of ready-made, fully customizable layouts available, with tons of options to make the most out of your portfolio. As someone who doesn't know much about coding, I can tell you that this was a godsend!

I have a couple invites to send, so if you're interested in checking the site out, drop me an email! In the meantime, check my new portfolio in the following link:

iOS Icons

As promised: new icons!

I've recently and unexpectedly got in the exciting iOS icon-making world, and here are a few icons to prove it! What do you think?

Some of these were made just for fun, others are on their way to the App Store, and a couple are already there. I still haven't had the chance to work on the UI design of any app, but I hope that changes soon, because I'd love to!
