As an illustrator , I work as a freelancer for a small independent publishing company in Portugal. Their budget is small that is why I don't get many orders and my images in the portfolio are mainly in black and white watercolor . But i am always happy to do my watercolors or other materials in full color. The covers of the books i illustrated are in full color.
Lately most of my images are made using adobe...
When I’m illustrating human or animal characters for juvenile books, I draw them in a simple way but always try to create them according to the main personality traits described in the text or under the text.
Although I never illustrated a comic book , my style could easily be adapted to cartoon/comic books. A good story generates my images that are like images from a chapter , but I could draw the complete story .
I don't work on photos treatment, my work is always original with or without photo models.
I am used to work under tight deadlines, work will be delivered on line , in time to get feedback and correct to meet the client preferences.
As a translator , besides Portuguese I am proficient in English, Dutch and French .
The link to the company I am collaborating with is http://www.textiverso.com/
Samples are included in my portfolio.
