Thumbnail Sketches 2

Just a few more thumbnail sketches I did a few years ago with some color or tonal variations so you can get an idea of how a complex illustration can start from simple stuff.

“TECH FOREST” : Making Of – Step by Step – Drawing Tutorial

DRAWING TUT-logo

Here´s another step by step painting tutorial for those of you who enjoy looking at the creative process. This is one of many ways of creating this sort of science fiction alien planet landscapes and scenery.
I begun this one trying out some random sketches in small thumbnails. As you may recognise the first one with the spiked landscape I later used for my “Retro Rocket” illustration too.
Enjoy.

“EVERYBODY COMES TO RICKS : ALIEN BAR” : Original sketch sample.

This was the original sketch I did for this pic and then expanded on it to set the final mood. This sketch was fingerpainted on IPad 2, using “Procreate” and finished in Photoshop CC2017 a few weeks later, just for fun.

Alienbarsketch

Cinema is one of my main inspiration sources and Casablanca will always be one of those that I keep coming back too because I think it has a huge potential for scifi. So here´s the final pic for this one.

Comics pages : Scifi Artwork

Just a few pages from a comissioned comics work I did a couple years back.
American comics style is really not my thing as I grew up in the 70s in the golden age of European/Belgium/French stories so trying to emulate the graphic look of typical EUA comics is not something that I enjoy much but I needed to create something similar for this job to work and so here´s a few images from that.

MUSEUM : Drawings from when I was a kid – “ALIEN – COMICS (Novelisation adaptation” ( 1983 – 13 years old )

LOST IN SPACE art museum-logo

I was only able to watch Ridley Scott´s “ALIEN” more than ten years after it premiered in theaters. I was too young to be allowed inside the Cinema when the movie was released and so I missed it. Because we´re taking about an Era where even VHS had not appeared yet , either we saw a movie like this when it was being screened or we would never have any other chance. So I missed it.
But I knew of its existence and I remember that this was one of those movies that I really wanted to see when I was a kid but I never got the chance. Even if the poster looked a bit scary.
Before the Internet, “my internet” was called books ! And one day around 1983 I got my hands on the movie novelization written by Alan Dean Foster (who else) and by reading that book, that was the first time I got to learn anything about the movie plot.
Because the book had about six or eight photographs from the movie I decided to make my own comics adaptation of the book.
This is why you look at my comics pages below and you see some things resembling the original sets and scenery and others which I depicted in a complete different way, like “my Nostromo”. The funny thing is that I seemed to have managed to illustrate the computer “mother” room with almost the same exact look it has in the movie and that came out just of my imagination.
So anyway here it is. I never got to finish this, because at 13 I was always looking to create new scifi projects of my own and so these are the only pages I created.

I wonder how I would have depicted the Alien itself ?… We´ll never know now…

 

 

“HESTIA AND THE WAR” : Old Book Illustration Project

OldWork-logo

These are from an old project which I never got to complete because I did another book instead for the same client. I created these images just to find the right mood for the project and this is the first one.

hestia2AeB_1024x

And although I like how these next pics look like, I noticed the whole thing was going into some sort of Disney style which was not my intention in the first place. I like the colors though…

hestia3AeB_1024x

Early test with a different style which I found too cartoonish for the actual story and so I immediately abandon it although I don´t entirely dislike the end result here.

Thubnail Sketches

One of the things I love to do are these thumbnail sketches. It´s my favorite part of each illustration process even if I end up not using most of what I do, it creates a nice archive of stuff to reference later.
So here´s a couple of simple examples of how I can start an illustration. In this stage this is where you can define not only the essential shapes of your pic but also very important the dark/light values you might want to establish from the start. After this is just a question of how much details you want to paint later.

These thumbnails below were the base for the saturn space scene from my “FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL” pic you can find here: https://icreateworlds.net/2017/12/15/first-day-of-school/

“RETRO ROCKET : Vintage Style Scifi” : Making Of – Step by Step

DRAWING TUT-logo

One thing that I love is old scifi from the rocket-age of science fiction, so I´m always getting inspiration from that stuff. Movies like “THINGS TO COME” or “FORBIDDEN PLANET” are among my all time favorites and are a great source of ideas. In this case this pic was actually inspired by the late 70s Filmation Flash Gordon animated series and so here it is step by step in case you want to learn how to create an illustration like this using only simple shapes and playing with perspective.

MUSEUM : Drawings from when I was a kid – “DRACKON DAS ESTRELAS – COMICS” ( 1984 – 14 years old )

LOST IN SPACE art museum-logo

Just to scare some more potential clients away, here´s one of my old and first tries at creating comics when I was a kid. This was done around 1984 when I was barely 14 years old and it´s “my famous” incomplete scifi-story; this because I never got to finish the album. I did 40 hand drawn pages for about three or four months but there is one I never got to complete the inking process to this day and it has remained like that for 34 years. Maybe one of this days I´ll finish this project.
This was really a compendium of everything that I loved and inspired me when I was 14 in sci-fi. So there´s a character with “Apollo´s” hair from Galactica, there´s a space mercenary because Han Solo was my favorite hero back then, there´s an alien cantina and all sorts of things, the story starts like in Superman the Movie, etc.
This is how my artwork looked like when just turned 14, back in 1984.

One particular detail is that even back then I didn´t wanted to copy the super-hero american comics style and what I always loved was to read real science fiction or stuff that was not connected to super heros. So this comics reflect all that and even have a touch of Space 1999 in them too.
So… enjoy… I guess…

 

Just a couple of test pics.

These are a few test pics for something I will probably be illustrating in the near future.
I do a few of these everytime I get a new text to illustrate just to see if my illustration style can work. Sometimes a great text does not work visually and I like to make sure I can do justice to what the authors writte and so instead of rough sketches I tend to do these illustrations just to get confortable with a project before I begin officially on it.
