“MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING DAYS” – Illustration / Concept Artwork – Making Of / Step-by-Step creative breakdown.

So as usual here´s a glimpse into the making of for my new terraforming Mars pic.
It´s the possible breakdown of my process although in reality things are not done as linear as I need to showcase here as when I´m drawing I´m doing details and things all over the place as I have a crazy almost random working flow when it comes to create my worlds. But nevertheless I think this can help you to find the logic behind the creation of my second (new) “MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING DAYS” pic.

Click here to see the step-by-step making of for that one too.

People keep asking where I get the idea for my pics. Well, I read a lot. Reading books makes you use your imagination and so I have a lot of practice in imaginining stuff. If you want to learn how to draw, read books, ( not picture books, but novels ) as that will make you imagine stuff a lot and so when it comes to drawing being able to visualize something in your mind is very important.
Also on inspiration, when it comes to Mars in particularly  I have my own interest on the subject for decades now and in particularly the Cydonia/Face on Mars controversy so I have a ton of inspiration material from that too. Also I´ve listened to the Art Bell talk radio show for ages when he still was on the air and so there´s no short of ideas from that too.

If you like Art Bell, there´s a great alternative to his show that you may not know about it. It´s called “THE UNEXPLAINED.TV” hosted by the British journalist Howard Hughes and it´s the next best thing to Bell you ever eard, as this guy is as good as he was when Art did his radio show. The unexplainded.tv site has already a ton of fascinating interviews on podcast that will fire your imagination too. I listen to that a lot when I´m painting; this pic was done listening to one of his old Mars shows.
