, this is the third official entry for the "Arma del alma" project. [Mirar versión en español]You can watch the previous entry [English] [Español]
"In a land ruled by fighters only those who aim for Victory can become living legends, an ascend to eternity"
"but eternity has a price, what you see here are the remains of those who once lose their bodies through the ages"
"Now a new age of legends begins and a hero arise to change this twisted world"
"Arma del Alma" is a story in which i seek to paint most of these legendary warriors, whose spirits remain in their majestic armors. Each one seeks to portrait a design concept, fighting style and culture, representative for their own being. I wish all of you can like the designs i'll be working.
I want this project to become my first Artbook (and even more), so i'll need a lot of time and hard effort to bring all these designs together. The first ten prints are available on DeviantArt.

Back in my childhood i always liked to see animated shows in which the characters wore amazing armors. As an illustrator, I want to make a tribute to that child, work it in a solid and serious product and share it's world with all.Is there a story related to this?
Yes. Even as an individual, Each armor has it's own history (mostly related to fiction) more details will be revealed when the time comes.How often would you update this project?
I'd like to say that very often. But sadly i have priorities as a designer at my work and extra priorities as a freelance illustrator, and obviously, personal responsabilities... so i don't have a proper Schedule. But don't worry, i'll work hard to make them faster than possible.How many armors will you make?
