ESPN U college town

Hey! you like facebook? sports? videogames? sure you do! check out the game I've been working on for the last 6 months "ESPN U COLLEGE TOWN" for facebook.


Some drawing I did over summer vacations.

Hi Everyone,

Here are a couple of pencil samples from World War Hulks: spider-man vs Thor, which is alredy out. Be sure to check it out.

Sandoje 3d

Hey Everyone! Here is a very cool colab I did with the amazing 3D artist David Abreras. This is a character design I did for a personal comic I was working on but never had the time to finish back in 2006, I should really pick it up again sometime. Anyway...David asked me if he could use the character for modeling, couple of months later he showed me the final result and I was breathless. At first I thought it was my drawing just painted on top, then I looked closely and saw how close he kept the model to my concept. This was really exciting since this was the first time I'd ever seen my character being represented by someone else in 3d, and boy he did a fantastic job. So...for those 3d artist out there who are interested into the backstage work of David on this piece, check out the 3dtotal article/tutorial. http://www.3dtotal.com/tutorial/softimage_xsi/pirate_sandoje_character_modeling/sandoje_pirate_modeling_01.php

random sketches

Here are a couple of random sketches from my sketch book, some unfinished stuff but I guess that's the point of a sketch book.
Hopefully I'll be able to upload someting more polish soon.

Ipad sketch wolverine

Hey guys!
Another Ipad Sketch
I think I’ll be posting a lot of Ipad sketches if my brothers keep taking me to eat breakfast at Chili’s on Sundays.
So here is Wolverine, enjoy.
Check it out!

My brother just got this new Ipad thing, and I have to admit it’s quite amazing.
This is one of the sketches I started doing while waiting for breakfast at Chili’s. I think the idea of having a digital sketchbook is great.
Thinking about getting one, but I just wish apple would put some pressure sensitivity on the tablet, hopefully next generation.

Here are a couple of sketches I did while watching Dexter.
I think I’ll try to do this more often, it was good practice.



Here’s my latest sketch that I did during my Easter break at the beach.
It’s been I while since I had the time to draw in my sketch book.
The image doesn’t have a real meaning just want to portrait something pretty to look at.

Old sketch I did last summer, I haven’t had the time of finish it, but I think that’s the beauty of sketches.

A sketch I did some while ago for a concept I'm working on, for a possible cartoon.

See my latest interview on CBR and sneek peak at AVENGERS IN #35 final issue! http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=25353

Avenger initiative #35

Here are the sketches for one of the two pages I’m working on for the Avengers initiative #35, the final issue.

Basically the way I work my pages for a title is giving the scrip a first read just for fun, then a second time trying to figure out what panel shapes and composition I should use in each page. Once I draw thumbnails on the side of the script I start doing little sketches for each panel, sometimes on the same script and sometimes on another side page. After I have a couple of ideas of how each panel is gonna work I then start with the sketch like the one you see here, I usually go around it with and HB pencil so I can get strong lines and speed up the process.

Then I scan the sketch and blow it up in the computer and I print it on a comic board size(11” x17”) then I tape the print into a comic board page. Now I start tracing with a 2H pencil the print on my light table ,once I’m done with all the tracing I turn off the light table and go around the page working on my lines and polishing the details.

Hope this is helpful for other artist out there, because I'm always eager to know the process of work of other artist.

Here’s a little preview of the sketches I did for an upcoming title about Hulk. I had the great chance to work with Jimmy Palmiotti. I had a lot of fun working on this title, since I had the freedom to do all the art work with no rushing deadlines. That would make any artist happy.

Here is a little behind the scenes work of one of my latest images, there’s really no idea behind it.

I just wanted to play around with the composition and color. Basically I wanted to make something nice to look at. I started out the sketch with an HB pencil then went on my light table with a 2H pencil, color it on Photoshop.
