Who doesn´t love some good old alien cow abduction ?

Yet another painting I did many months ago for the “ATTACK ALL HUMANS” board game, now in its test phase. These are a few of the tonal variations I did to play with color for this scene back then.

My transition from traditional acrylics, watercolor and ink illustration into digital was realy difficult. A nightmare actually. For years I thought I was never going to be able to do it and I was condemned to work traditionally forever.
Many times I´ve tried to adapt to digital art with no sucess whatsoever as I worked in traditional illustration for more than a decade before and perhaps because of that, somehow I had tremendous dificulty in converting my original style to the digital age.
I tried many softwares and failed at all of them. Several times.
One day I became part of a project for an History book and I forced myself to do it entirely in digital, even though I had no clue of what I was doing or how I was going to do it. Fortunately I was working with an author friend of mine and so the whole thing was more like and experiment for me where “failure” was an option.
The result was a mismash of mixed results and the book looked different from page to page,  as if many illustrators had worked on it and failed to some or many degrees. It got published nevertheless, it sold really well and it´s even now out of print which meant some readers out there must have liked it. Even though nowadays I find 99% of those illustrations almost embaracing as it´s still clear that I had no clue about what I was doing at that time and was just trying to paint digitaly out of fear of not being able to complete the task more than anything else.
For me in the end, it was an interesting project to learn how -not to illustrate- in digital. Nevertheless the end result, looking back now, still has some beginners charm in that -so bad , it´s good (?) – category.
You be the judge…


This book became something special in my own personal artistic evolution as it was from this “failed” experience I decided that I needed to really get the grasp with this digital thing even if it was the last thing I was going to do. Understanding –what not to do- in digital painting by forcing myself to illustrate “A Batalha do Arade” book,  set me on the right path to finally learn how to do it properly; taking advantage of all the digital options out there that at the time I had no clue that existed in the digital realm. From this project I started to go online looking for places to learn and came across the fantastic youtube channel from the FZDSCHOOL which actually saved my life and set me on the right path. I totally recommend that channel to all the people who want to learn how to draw and paint in digitial but not only.
As for my failed “A Batalha do Arade” book project, I just thought it was fun to share this here as the blog should also be about my failures and not just about the stuff that I get right. 😉

Although I think you won´t be seeing this image in the game as the Hollywood sign has some huge copyright fees attached and so this image was scratched from the actual game because of that.

More info on the game soon. Or for now (29-09-2018)  you can follow the contents on this FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1771014106287415/about/

Not exactly my usual theme (I hate chickens) , but here´s a chicken pic I illustrated for a marketing studio sometime ago. This is the current campaign for an egg farm company here in Portugal using one of the images I did for their – Happy Chicken – brand.

I don´t have the  image version they picked here with me , which was the second version I did for them but it was all based on this original below.

This was inspired by one of my favorite scifi movies “NATURAL CITY“. I love oriental cinema and this movie in particular has a spaceport romantic scene that inspires me a lot,  so the whole feel for my pic came from that bit.

” SPACE PORT – ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES”

This was inspired by one of my favorite scifi movies “NATURAL CITY“. I love oriental cinema and this movie in particular has a spaceport romantic scene that inspires me a lot,  so the whole feel for my pic came from that bit.

T4-FINAL-Arrivals-1250x

You can take a look at my review for the movie here at my blog. Use google translator form Portuguese into English. 😉

https://universosesquecidos.wordpress.com/…/natural…/

I was not in a rush and I painted in several days at the end of the day to relaxed from payed commission work.
I never do sketches, color tests, or anything related to any sort of planning whatsover.
All my “sketches” are done inside my imagination before a pic starts. When I have the visual “sketched” in my mind, ( color mood included ),  I just start to paint the pic and then the aditional texture work if needed brings it to life at the end.

I could have spent easily about 10 or 20 more hours on this just zooming in every detail and refining it to a point this would look almost photo realistic. Its easy for me to do that, but I don´t have time for creating “completed” paintings no more because I have commissions to do for other type of projects; usually children book stuff away from this type of art that I love.
Since I left Photoshop for good and started to paint witg Clip Studio Paint I actually like the way the brushes can give a more traditional feel to a paint rigth away and so I left this image in a rough phase because I like the “painting” feel where we see all the bush strokes and all that.

This also ended up with some sort of John Harris space art feel which was totally not intentional but unavoidable since his space scenes were really a big part of my childhoood back in the late 70s.
