Bartkira StarTwo style! Vol 5



Hello everyone!★★
Today we bring you the page we did for the Bartkira project – Vol.5. (in addition to the ones we did for Vol.4! Check the post about it ►here◄ )
For those who are not familiar with the project, here’s the description on the Bartkira Roadshow youtube channel:

Bartkira is an animated parody mash-up of The Simpsons and Akira. Based on an idea by Ryan Humphrey articulated through comics, the concept was expanded with the Bartkira project, a comic collaboration of Simpsons fans, curated by James Harvey. In association with the comic, Moon Animate Make-Up producer Kaitlin Sullivan pitched the idea of an animated trailer to match and with the work of over fifty artists, produced the Bartkira animated trailer.

We had a lot of fun once again, as expected, but there was more work involved due to the different characters and rhythm of the action.
Despite the slow pace, this gave us an opportunity to turn what could be considered a “boring” page into something more into the Simpsons’ Universe, but not without being worried on how to translate “Akira” into “Simpsons”.


Squidnapping! Squid smack!

In the end we decided to bring a story within a story, hence the “squidnapping”, making this our favourite page from the ones we made. Well, besides the one with the appearance of Sideshow Bob, because… It’s Sideshow Bob.

Here are some of the stages of the page and also some character studies we did to get a better grip of each one of them.

We hope you enjoy them just as much as we enjoyed being part of this project!
Take care, everyone!★★

Demon Love at Deviantart Return


♥Be it Beasts, Angels or Creatures, we hope you love and be loved the same♥


Since we’re going back to submitting recent works to Deviantart (an art community online), we thought it would be a nice cross posting opportunity, since we’ve been wanting to post this fiery couple for quite a while.


In case you’re curious and haven’t had the opportunity, we invite you to check out our gallery page right ►here◄



We hope you like it!★★


Inktober 2016 – Day 31


“W-we can do t-thiiis!”

And here we are at the end of our first Inktober ever and what a wonderful ending, to end it with Halloween!
It’s been a wonderful journey. It taught us a thing or two about time management and helped us to beat some doubts and fears when doing traditional work. We hope to keep improving and keep reaching for our trusty pens and not just the digital tablets!

We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of you that have been coming to our blog. We are humbled by seeing so many of you coming back to check our things and keep connecting by chosing to follow our work! Really, thank you so very much! We hope to soon give you the chance to win a little thank you gift so stay tuned!

And now get your witch’s hats out, grab some candy and do the zombie shuffle! Woo! Happy Halloween!!


Inktober 2016 – Day 30


“It’s just not my nature…”

No point in imposing a set of rules to someone who moves at a different pace. But meeting halfway should be the solution for those with enough willpower… Sometimes?

The fated spooky night of the year is coming. Are you ready for tomorrow?~♥


Inktober 2016 – Day 29


Always be wary Mr. Wolf… It’s Halloween season and poisoned candy is a possibility~♥

Yay, in two days it will be our favorite holiday again! You better be careful out there and give some good thought about your costume for Trick-or-Treating, lest you attract the wrong type of crowd!

Halloween is starting to be more popular in our country nowadays but alas, this year we don’t have time to party. Is anyone dressing up this year? If so, what will your costume be? We’re always curious as to what everyone’s choice is when it comes to trick or treating!✦


Inktober 2016 – Day 28


These are not desert-like temperatures…

We digged up a little desert flower kept on the “to ink” sketch pile in honour of the heat wave that has hit Portugal for these last days… (we’re not complaining! It was just unexpected~)
Same little flower was used for this little tutorial we did ►right here◄
