"He corrected and calmed down the girl’s instincts, he taught her strategies, defense, concentration; how to move her body so that the sword became an extension of it, how to sense every opposing blow and dodge it."
With its abundant production, Royo becomes a true mass phenomenon. His books are numerous editions and are poured into French, German, English, Italian, Russian and Portuguese. Magazines such as Stampa, Airbrush-Action or Penthouse dedicate reports to him on his pages. Festivals, art galleries or specialized shops continuously organize exhibitions and tributes. He has made covers of books for great authors and has received awards such as the Silver Award Spectrum (The best in contemporary, Fantastic Art) and The Inkpot Award Comic Art (Comi-con International) in the United States, or the Fantasy Award The Pilgrim in CTPAHHNK, in Russia. The Millennium Prize of Fumetto Cartoo Mics in Italy, etc.

QUEENS
Although they appear to be the shadow of the King, as mere decorative elements, Queens exercise great influence. Because of this, Queens usually acquire more relevance than their husbands because while kings have power, Queens have many Powers. In front of power, the world obeys, but in front of the many Powers, the world is transformed.
There is a queen of love and another of panic. There are queens of unfulfilled desires and forgotten caresses, of impossible projects, lost glances, remembered dreams, of secret pain, and of the baited breath. There is also a queen who dies with the full moon and is reborn on the fourth waning of the moon.
There are discreet queens, small queens, and those without crowns. All are extraordinarily influential. There are queens of the common life and daily routines. There are queens of lost socks, queens of blunders, queens of broken nails, and queens of chipped plates, empty trays, disorganized drawers, and a queen of sad smiles. There is even a queen without powers that only serves to console the unsuccessful.
The queen’s crown is not made of gold or precious jewels, but with a touch of night and a few drops of silver. On the feminine heads, black crowns with eyes can be found, with sharpened points of hair, shark bones, scarab wings, and water that springs from a fountain of red lips.
There exists a damned queen, banished from all other kingdoms. Outlawed since the beginning of time, she has grown in solitude and has made herself as high as the flight of an eagle and as scarce as the flapping of a vulture. She moves through all pathways, wrapped in her black robes, confident that one day she will conquer the world. This is her majesty Death.

SIAMESE XII
Romulo Royo
PAINTING
Ink, acrylic and oil on canvas.
Size 95 x 78 cm.
Year of realization 2008
Signed in the bottom-right of the piece.
Published in the book of author "Siameses", page 41.
From the series, Metal Piel, painted between 2008 and 2009, which has been exhibited at venues such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova in Slovenia, Can Framis Museum and Moscow’s 4th Biennale of Contemporary Art, Fran Daurel,....
The face and the otherness.
A face is an invaluable part of any portrait, an epiphany which can never be embraced. Variations and small differences evoke a certain repetitive disentrenchment where one discovers the power of simulation, which is, together with the efficiency of displacement, where one’s appearance fades into in the disguise . It may in fact be that a face is nothing more than a backdrop for a scene that does not develop, except in the intermission. It is as if there is a permanent metamorphosis, yet dismantling the face is by no means simple, as Deleuze reminds us, one can easily slip into madness. It is not by chance that the schizophrenic simultaneously loses the sense of his face, both his own and those of others, or the sense of his surroundings, his language and its predominant meanings. “Dismantling one’s face – as he affirms in A Thousand Plateaus – is the same as climbing over the wall of meaning, and climbing out of the black hole of subjectivity” . We also know that fantasy governs reality and a mask can never be lifted without taking a bit of flesh along with it. The Other can have the features of an abyss, in the same way that symbolic order is found to be hidden by the fascinating presence of the object of fantasy “We experience it every time we look into the eyes of another person and feel the depth of their gaze” . It is prudent to remember that when the subject gets too close to fantasy, (self)nullification occurs. The art is left as aphanisis . Medusa’s gaze joins together dreams and death definitively . There is no question that the altered face is crucial to the work of Rómulo Royo, who paints as if he aims to evoke the idea, to quote Valery, that what is deepest is in fact the skin.

The male dragon with a hairy body, whose name is sulfur, fell from the Sun. Night has put things out of balance. Now one can no longer contemplate the two hermetic dragons, the true principle of wisdom that the wise men hid from the eyes of their children. At night, only the female dragon rules, winged, with a rabbit’s snout, damp and volatile.

MRS DEMMING AND THE MYTHICAL BEAST
Luis Royo
PAINTING
Watercolor, ink using airbrush and oil on canvas.
Painted surface 31 x 50 cm (12.2 x 19.68 in) in a format of 44 x 63 cm (17.32 x 24.8 in)
Year of realization 1986
Signed in the bottom right near the rock.
Cover of novel "Mrs. Demming and the Mythical Beast" by writer Faith Sullivan, edited by Tor (USA) publishing house. Also published among Luis Royo cards collection "From Fantasy to Reality".
Illustration published inside the book Malefic, page 3.  Edited in several languages and internationally distributed.
"Loving a god is dangerous. Their power is capricious, as is their favor. And they are irresistible - what they ask of you, you must do."

Luis Royo has made the myth of “beauty and the beast” his principal theme, effortlessly moving from horror to the lyrical. Whatever the theme, his characters waltz effortlessly between epic and erotic. The subject´s flesh is overlaid with a defiant and threatening tone, marking them more exciting. As Royo knows all too well, when the dark ghost of death looms over the hero, the suggestion of sex becomes more intense.
When studying his characters, one notices that he places the subject on the border of tragedy, where they can shine more brilliantly. Their frozen position anticipates a destiny as attractive as it is cruel. Clutching their weapon, they await the next attack. Their intensity and the tautness of their muscles make them even more beautiful and dramatic. In the blink of an eye they can disappear, having been devoured by the danger that encircles them. But the immediate future doesn´t interest Royo. He portrays that penultimate moment, when the inner soul of the hero is revealed.
– Antonio Altarriba (Screenwriter and image theorist)


Luis Royo is perhaps the most highly regarded pinup/fantasy artist of the past twenty years. He is world renowned as the master of this genre, and he is the single most published cover artist in the history of Heavy Metal magazine. Royo, more than any other artist, is credited with defining the look of Heavy Metal magazine, and influencing the world of modern fantasy and pinup art. Royo's artwork has graced the covers of hundreds of magazines and books, and his work has been collected in a best-selling series of books devoted to his work. He is a rarity in the world of illustration art in that his popularity is literally worldwide. It is especially noteworthy that his original paintings are virtually nonexistent in the marketplace. Royo's most desirable work, his famous signature pieces, are those of strong women, presented in this unique style, where the worlds of science fiction, fantasy and pinup collide. The fact that the emphasis of Royo's marketing lies in the publishing (calendars, books, prints, etc.) and licensing of his work, rather than the selling of his originals (and the fact that he does not accept commissions from collectors), plays a great role in the virtual absence of his material in the marketplace. This is a major museum-quality work by Luis Royo, the legendary master of fantasy art.
