Location: Portugal Web: www.manuelmorgado.com Email: email@example.com ME DIA: Photoshop, pencil, brush, inks From comics and movies to Baroque and Renaissance art, Manuel’s influences are many and varied – although he particularly likes the work of Rubens, Vermeer and Caravaggio.
“My work is easily adapted to different subjects,” he says, “to convey ideas or promote products in advertising. But I prefer sequential art as it helps me better tell a story or come up with concept art to create new worlds and creatures.”
The Portuguese artist has worked on a string of commissions, both at home and abroad, and is always looking for new challenges.
1 Samurai Showdown “A typical fight scene with a Japanese theme. A rogue samurai fights his master. What I like the most here is the lighting and the dark effect of the overall light.”
2 Mad Maxine “I normally don’t do sci-fi pictures, but I wanted some practise in the genre. It’s also a homage to the Mad Max series, from a female point of view.”
