Trip to Manaus and Curaçao

Hi everyone!

Recently I took a little trip to Manaus and Curaçao.

I had a wonderful time with my girlfriend exploring Willemstad, Klein Curaçao and absorbing the different languages and cultures in such a rich place.

I have also explored a bit more of Manaus.

Here are some pictures of both places, Curaçao and Manaus, taken by me and my girlfriend.

Updates and Skywind

Hi everyone,

Some new updates!

lobis03corbitt02

New images from two projects I am doing: a brazilian werewolf and Walter Corbitt, from a previous concept of mine – you can see my previous post about him here.

I also started working in the Skywind project! It is a complete overhaul of the Skyrim game, making The Elder Scrolls III – Morrowind entirely in that game’s engine, with a lot of dedicated professionals working on it.

My first contribution is the redesign for the Indoril Shield, a very iconic armor piece.

You can see my progress here.

Manaus – december 2015

Hello everyone!

This december I was visiting and touring with my girlfriend in Manaus and some parts of the Amazon.

The sights were beautiful, the heat tolerable, the trip amazing.

We got to visit some very interesting museums (the city has plenty of them) and had the chance to know a bit more of the story of our country.

The food is fantastic in this place, with plenty of fishes (I tasted about seven of them, and there are many, many more available) and delicious fruits and juices.

Manaus is a city with few monuments, but many of them are very, very beautiful. A special highlight goes to the Largo São Sebastião and the Amazon Theatre.

The city is also very easy to navigate, so you can see things easily.

We got to see a lot of animals and wildlife, including the rare and elusive Pied tamarin monkey, which only exists in the Manaus region.

Culturally and artistically, it’s impossible not to talk about the biggest indian population in the country.

The 38 ethnic groups of the Amazon have amazing cultures and practices, and we got a small chance of seeing a ritual and many, many handicrafted pieces, including masks, cooking utensils, baskets, you name it.

All in all, it was a fantastic trip, highly recommended to anyone with an open mind willing to see a magical place.

Fernando de Noronha – september 2015

Last september I took a vacation with my girlfriend to one of the paradises here in Brazil: Fernando de Noronha.

Located over 300km from the coast of Brazil, it features amazingly beautiful beaches with a very rich wildlife.

It was a fantastic experience, I highly recommended it to nature and peace lovers.

Here are some pictures we both took in the trip.
