My name is Ruben Martinez Arribas, I’m 39 years old and I live in Madrid, Spain. It was right here in Spain where I won my first prizes as a painter in the Golden Demon competition. In 2010 and 2011 I won the Slayer Sword, and I have been working as a professional painter ever since. I have trained and taught a multitude of painters in the BigChild Creatives painting workshops, where I run the painting department.
As a painter I look for new approaches to capture my imagination into the little canvases that miniatures are. I take inspiration from illustration techniques such as strong ambiences, trim lights, color harmony, drop shadows, or light and shadow studies. I never stop experimenting to try and make my next piece the best it can be.
