Juan David Muñoz Rico

Colom­bian il­lus­tra­tor Juan cites his main in­flu­ences as Bal­dur’s Gate, The Lord of the Rings, and the great Frank Frazetta. As well as mythol­ogy and fan­tasy, he’s also in­ter­ested in so­cial con­flicts.

1 Re­lax

“Mon­sters are al­ways rep­re­sented as be­ings with­out any per­son­al­ity, so I al­ways try to play with their body shape and fa­cial ex­pres­sion. This lizard is silent, but clearly ex­presses its non­cha­lance to­wards the world around him.”

2 The War­rior

“This man will give every­thing for his land, even though his ef­forts are for­got­ten. In this il­lus­tra­tion I fo­cused on con­vey­ing the man’s sense of deep pride through his ar­mour and gi­ant sword.”

3 Aw Crap!

“I love to show the weak­ness of some higher be­ings against crea­tures who they think are be­neath them. In this, there’s a hu­man be­ing who feels in­signif­i­cant in the com­po­si­tion.”

4 Granny Mode

“A perfect mo­ment to show the young peo­ple the real power of the granny’s ex­pe­ri­ence. When I paint a char­ac­ter, I try to cap­ture their per­son­al­ity and charm. Here, the granny has a real con­nec­tion with na­ture.”
