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


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.
