We asked 200 artists one question."If we could make a book that would solve all of your art problems, what would that book be?" The following problem areas came up repeatedly:

1. Character design                                        

2. Action poses

3. Drawing faces                                            

4. Drawing hands

21 Draw SOLVES all of these problems


ArteagaXXI's Profile Picture
José L. Serrano Silva
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
I was born in Madrid, where I finished my studies as an Illustrator and graphic designer.
I spent part of my lifetime in Galicia, land of myths and legends where I worked with Sotelo blanco, Contos Estraños and Almena editorials.

Since young I was captivated by mythology and the world of folklore, as well as any story that would enroll a series of nightmare creatures, fantasy characters or the eternal fight between good and evil.
Angus Mcbride, John Howe, Alan lee, and Ted Nasmith are some of the authors that have influenced my work since then.

I pay special attention to details when I work. I design mainly by pencil; afterwards I apply
color and textures digitally.

Published Works:
- Illustrator/Concept Artist for The Thing II rpg video game.
- Compostela, una historia entretenida. (Editorial Sotelo Blanco).
- A grande ameaza. (Editorial Sotelo Blanco).
- La guerra de los dos Pedros 1356-1359. (Editorial Almena).
- Las campañas de Almanzor 977-1002. (Editorial Almena).

• Contos Estraños editorial. Illustrations for:
- Contos Estraños Nº4 “Nadal Impío”. Arquipélago and Benqueridos Reis Magos.
- Contos Estraños Nº3 “Vieiros do Mañá”. Morte Final and As lúas de Asgardh.
- Contos Estraños Nº2 "Xornada Fantástica". A cabalgata dos Centauros and A estúpida existencia de
Victoria Expósito.
- Contos Estraños Nº1 "Anoiteceres Estraños". O Sátiro and Expediente Sentulo.

Hi Arteaga. I am seeking a book cover illustration despicting the 14th century. I would like to talk to you. Do you have anything that involves plague? Not 17th Century plague, must be 14th Century. Otherwise I am looking at your knight images. Please email me at so we can discuss.
