XIX Salon del Manga poster entry by SebastianvonBuchwald XIX Salon del Manga poster entry by SebastianvonBuchwald
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

EDIT 2: And now a Daily Deviation! I'm super flattered. 

EDIT: Now available as a print!

So this is my entry to the "XIX Salon del Manga" (a manga convention here in Barcelona). Here is, for reference, the actual winner announced only a couple of days ago: manga-xix.ficomic.com/IMAGES_1…

I dig it. It's a solid concept and I expected something like that to win (because it references Gaudi and Barcelona and whatnot) although I'm slightly bothered by the fact that the rules stated that it must all be original work, i.e. no copyrighted characters which is clearly not the case in the winner. If I had known there was that much leeway in that rule, I might've thought about doing my own piece a little differently. Or maybe not. Who knows?

Maybe I'm just a sore loser.

Still dig my entry though.

wuaahh! si,esta genial! de verdad!

Dio mucha rabia ver que incluso ellos mismos no siguieron las reglas
yo no sé si me presentare el año que viene.., se te terminan quitando las ganas! 

más bien porque te gastas mucho dinero en imprimirlo,ponerle un soporte, y más si tienes(como yo) que enviarlo por correo ...ugh
se va mucho dinero..por lo menos que aceptaran que  les pudieras enviar el archivo por hotmail,y si no gana,pues ,solo te habras gastao'  tiempo.

esperemos que tambien se miren lo de las colas..porque este año ¡fue todo un lio! que rabia,tantas horas !

uhh! que me voy por las ramas! lo siento!

Felicidades por el Daily Deviation!! :D

Estoy de acuerdo aunque, aparte de lo de las reglas, el ganador si me gusto y en realidad se veía bien en el Salón. A mí en realidad no se me han ido las ganas y ya tengo una idea para el Salón del Comic en un par de meses. ;)

Una propuesta interesante y extrema. Y quizás por eso es inadecuada para el Salón del Manga de Barcelona (Que, si sigues su historia cartelera, te darás cuenta que le van diseños más minimalistas y luminosos) ¡Bueno! Suerte para la próxima :3

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Hubo personas que me dijeron lo mismo pero soy un poco terco con esas cosas y, si iba a ganar, me hubiera gustado hacerlo con algo que en verdad sea mío y no un dibujo que hago basado en antiguos ganadores. Pero bueno, muchas gracias igualmente. :)

I can see why it might not have been as "commercially" appealing for a public contest, but that doesn't change the fact that it is an utterly astonishing piece of art. :o

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Yeah, a lot of people told me that, but I felt like I had to do it my way. :)
Glad you like it though. :)

Hah. You might not have won the contest, but you got a DD. That's something. ;P
Cool art! Bit creepy and slightly unnerving, but still pretty sick.
Congrats on the DD, and happy 2014! :la:

Creepy and unnerving are compliments in my book. :)
Thanks for the kind words and yeah, really loving the exposure this DD has gotten me. :D

I'm shell shocked that the judges picked that over yours. Not that the winner's isn't nice or anything, as it has balance and is one big, interesting colorfest, but damn. Yours is...well it's amazing! The amount of detail, the perspective, the depth and sheer skill in this one is something that, I feel, should've won. It just screams 'plaster-me-on-a-poster-cuz-I'm-just-that-awesome'. Seriously though, this is something I would EXPECT on a poster. Like the banners hanging over the entry ways. Oh well, it's still an incredibly amazing picture.

God, I would've loved to have this plastered over the convention building. I got kinda sad when I saw the other piece honestly but hey, that's what happens. Definitely trying again this year though. And many thanks for your kind words of encouragement. :)

Dude, seriously? You lost to that picture? I don't know, if I were the judges, I would have picked yours over everything else. In the picture, you can see (or almost see) the raw emotion on the robot's face as it considers one of the greatest creations of our universe: manga. Sorry about your loss, and I hope that you continue to make more great artwork! :)

:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Many thanks for the kind words and yeah, that was definitely the idea with this piece: that comics/manga are completely amazing. I have no intentions of stopping anytime soon so no worries. And you can bet your ass I'll be ready with a new submission for the convention this year. And I aim to win this time. ;)
