Luis Royo and Romulo Royo are the creators of the project Malefic Time, a universe designed to fuse illustration, painting, music, sculpture, and other arts as never before.
Luis Royo began his career as a painter in 1972, and came in to the world of comics in 1978, but it was in the field of illustration, in the hands of the agency and publisher Norma Editorial, where he has developed his extensive career. He has done illustrations for covers of novels and video games for some of the largest companies in the world. His work has always been characterized by the realism of its characters, strength and sensuality.
He started his career in 1995 in publications like Barcelona and Planetarium, and develops his skills as an illustrator with the agency Norma Editorial until 1999. In recent years he has also advanced in the art of sculpture and has been present in places as Metelkova Museum, Can Framis Museum, City of Valencia Museum, Fran Daurel Foundation, Maeztu de Estella Museum and National Museum of Slovenia among others. There he exposed series like Siamese or Metal-Piel, consisting of paintings, sculptures, installations and technological media.
"Our relationship with Nocturna Models dates back to 2013, and we still remember when they came to the studio to propose us to make miniatures based in our work. They lived with such intensity the story of how those figures would be and how they could interpret the Malefic Time universe that we did not hesitate to leave in their hands the shaping of the characters of the story, and we were not wrong.
They have treated and worked each of the characters with love, without losing their essence, faithful to the moment of the scene in which they portray them, in the movement and in other cases in their stillness, providing a vision and different angles, completing scenarios and outfits completing them from all angles. What to say to the care and attention with which they deal with the details. It seems the work of the gods that you can reach such a definition with the sizes of their miniatures.
Since that year, the collaboration has always been patent until today, focusing on the history of Malefic Time. They have given shape in miniature to the most relevant characters of the 3 books that make up the main story Apocalypse, 110 Katanas and Akelarre. And now it's time to tackle a board game about the Malefic universe in which the quality of the figures Nocturna is working on is guaranteed, as the contribution of Nosolorol in the adventures of the game will make them great.
Thanks very much, Jesus Martin and all Nocturna Models team for letting us enjoy your work".
