I am free to show some concepts I did for the upcoming “Conscious Mind” horror game from Moonville Entertainment.
Here is the process behind the concept of one of the enemies, the worker. It had to look like a human factory worker from behind but with a twisted face in the front.
Final approved concept
First I started with the face, going wild with the designs. The client liked numbers 2, 4 and 6
Based on the previous ones the client liked, I did more versions. Number 7 was approved
I then went for the body and clothes, trying some variation
The client liked the overalls and vests, so I did more versions
Deciding on the overalls, I did more iterations. The final chosen one is number 11
Hi everyone, Dionísio Arte portal made a post about me, showing my work and a bit of my story and process.

Here is a new work I did.
This is Iemanjá/Yemoja, one of the main orishas of the afro-brazilian and yoruba religions. I wanted to show a different version of her, inspired by the shapes and powers of the sea. I did this image for the wonderful “Contos de Òrun Àiyé”, a comic book project by Hugo Canuto. More details about it here (portuguese only).
I did a good research, learning some important aspects of her: she is a mother, queen of the sea, sometimes called and depicted as a mermaid. Symbols: the waning moon, starfish, waves, pearls.
I ended up with the mermaid version, since in my opinion it was more primal and symbolic and had a good balance between power and beauty with a unique shape and silhouette.
The final design is made to enhance the mother characteristics: big belly and breasts, the body paint of the womb (she gave birth to almost all deities). You can see my exploration and final design of the fan/mirror.
And here is a little making of.
Recently I did an interview for the portal Mapingua Nerd website – http://mapinguanerd.com.br/ – where I talk a bit about my folklore related work and story as an artist.

Here is an art for the upcoming game “Potira”. It takes place in the Amazon and follows a female indian called Potira.
The Mapinguari is a folklore creature that inhabits the Amazon jungle. Some say it is a huge one eyed ape with dark fur that eats people. Others, that it is a reminiscent of the Giant Sloth, which coexisted with indigenous people in the past. I chose the latter to make good character and similar to a tuxaua (leader), that would aid you on your quest.
I did these two images for the Aaron Sims Creative’s contest on Instagram.
Testing and learning new things.
