Second ImagineFX Workshop

It is a pleasure for me to announce that new issue of Imagine FX - April 2013 is out and inside there is the second workshop I have created for this amazing magazine!

This time my article is about some tips to create face details and techniques about colours rendering and lighting.
On the magazine DVD there are several Painter files with all working steps.
As usual, you can buy the issue or decide for a subscription at ImagineFX official website.

Every comment is always welcome!

In the future I hope to have the opportunity to create new articles for this magazine.

ImagineFX Workshop

I'm proud to announce my first article for ImagineFX on issue No. 91.
The subject of the workshop is a portrait of a Elf girl in Tolkien Middle-Earth style. I tried to put in the article the basic philosophy behind my working process starting from sketch creation to final adjustments with all details. On the magazine DVD there are all working steps (around 30 wip steps). You can buy the issue or decide for a subscription at ImagineFX official website.

As usually it is totally made in Painter (this time Painter 12 instead of Painter X). I hope you can find it interesting.
If you have the opportunity to read it, I'd like to know your opinion... your comments and suggestions could be useful for a future article...

Thanks to ImagineFX guys for this great opportunity!

Free Sharing Project: Download HiRes Pictures

Hi guys, I would like to announce a small news in my website.
If you like my works and if you want to have a HiRes copy of my pieces now you can do it!
In Digital Gallery section you can find under each thumbnail a button that allow you to download a full resolution tiff file of my illustrations (Space colour: RGB).
If you want you can use it for a print on paper or canvas for you or for a your friend but please don't sell prints of my pieces for money... it is not polite ;)

Why do I do this? Simple, art for me is a passion not a business.

For the moment you can download all works of my personal portfolio but in the next weeks I hope to have the permission to allow the download of all other commercial images (book covers).

Welcome to my new website

After long time I finaly decide to do a deeply restyiling to my site. The new site is made in Joomla! with XTC™ Extensions and some other free components.
I think it is more modern and flexible respect to the old one... I hope you like it.
I'm still working on the site, so in the next days you could notice some modifications.

If you want, let me know your impressions!
