The Dominica coast in the Caribean sea

Yet another sketch from Dominica using a Nintendo DS and the freeware program Colors! They told me Pirates of the Caribbean II was filmed around here :)

A hot pool in Dominica

Walking into the Boiling Lake, you get some of these, with small waterfalls and warm water. If you don't mind some sulphur smell, it's actually cool to take a bath.
This is a sketch I did when I went there using Nintendo DS and Colors!, a simple, but cool freeware drawing program.

The Dominica rain forest

All the way up from the top and into Desolation valley
This is a sketch I did last week in Dominica using Nintendo DS and Colors!, a simple, but cool freeware drawing program.


Another RPG sketch

Same Legend of the Five Rings character. Is a wakizashi supposed to look this short? :P

A concert in Prague

Prague is like the most exciting place on a lazy afternoon. Just wandering around, you can end up listening to Bach Gounod Ave Maria in a pretty place for just 10 bucks ...

My fav comic character

Well, in fact when George Perez was in charge, but Rucka was not too bad either ... Right now, I'm just pretty scared with the movie, specially since Whedon dropped the project

All of this things actually happened ... more or less

Jellyfishes in Green Island

The name of the place is Babylon 5 ...

In the opinion of yours, truly, B5 is the second best sci-fi series ever filmed (after the short lived Firefly, but I'm pretty partial on Malcolm Reynolds :D and followed by current Galactica). This is the first scene from one of the last episodes in season 2, when things start to move fast ... I'd have sketched the ending but ... huge spoilers

Gondor and Rohan

A couple of the guys of LotR before -for good or bad- I went to watercolors ...
