Another one from my “speed painting” current trend. Although “speed” is not even the right description for this process because although it didn´t took me 12 hours or so to complete it also didn´t took me 30 minutes either.
But I´m enjoying creating my world in this style where details are more about shapes and visual sugestions than on me actually having to draw them.
It has more of a traditional painting feel too and that is something that I always try to achieve.

Someone told me the creature style resemples something like “Dr Seuss”, but it was totally accidental if it does as that author was never part of my imaginary world or was ever a reference from any of my thing.

Desert Run 1A - 1250x

All my pics are more inspired by 70s european comics, like Meziére´s – VALERIAN or by novels / movie like DUNE. Although when it comes to fantasy type scenery my main inspiration source will always be The Neverending Story, book and movie.

More of a book cover than anything else but I just did this for a video tutorial so I decided to post it here anyway.
rock world V3 1250X
This is a good example of what I mean when I say everyone can learn to paint pics like this simply because it does not contain any elements that need you to know how to “draw” them in the classic sense. If you take a look everything in here is just based on simple shapes and not on details that have been drawn. It´s all about the composition , the lighting and the color.
And no, it was not inspired by the movie “ARRIVAL” although I love it… so … well perhaps it was…somehow…
This is also a good example of the type of images I love to create without any planning whatsoever. I hate sketches and planning my illustrations. I just take a blank camvas and go with the flow.

rock world V2 - 1250x
Not even I, know what I am going to paint next because if I did any planning for my art , I would already be imagining the next pic once the planning was done for the current one and i would never complete anything. I like the mystery of just letting my imagination go.

This is another making of video from “THE HIDDEN SPACESHIP” book. Actually this is not exactly complete because my computer crashed the screen recording process when I was about at 80% of the image and I was not able to recover the final making of details but nevertheless this gives you a good idea of how this particularly image was done.

Once again all done in Clip Studio Paint, alson known as the old Manga Studio. I´ve stopped illustrating children books in Photoshop, mostly because that software has become so heavy that my computer can hardly handle the necessary memory it takes it for me to create a 10.000 pixel wide image like this in it.
In Clip Studio Paint it´s the oposite, the whole software is so light that it´s amazing how we can paint with it as smoothly as if I was back into my traditional stuff of earlier days.
Nowadays I only use Photoshop when I do composite texture work or for some concept art stuff. Other thant that Clip Studio Paint is the software to go.

So, here´s the making of, for this particularly scene in the book “THE HIDDEN SPACESHIP”.

Most of the painting work was done as usual in Clip Studio Paint because it´s a million times better to paint this type of stuff than Photoshop is nowadays.  I simply had to replace it with the old Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint once I saw how light that awsome painting software is when compared to Photoshop which seems to be getting heavier and heavier everyday and one of these days there won´t even run on any machine. Contrary to what happens with Clip Studio Paint.

Many people ask me how to start illustrating for a children book, so this is an example of how I start to illustrate a book. I´m not actually one of those illustrators who do a lot of pre-planning and extensive sketches but I like to go through each text at this early stage and just translate it into a storyboard as if I was doing it for a movie as all my artwork is very cinematic anyway. At this stage is not about details but about the visual compositions and about the overall mood for each scene.

Story and text copyright by Serena Ferrari – 2019

Once I get this right the rest is actually easy because it´s all about rendering and fine tuning each detail until a page is finished. But that´s another topic for later. For now this is how i start.

Created for book 1 of a new series written by Jay Miletsky.
This one is called “The Masterpiece – One Big Canvas” and you can find it on AMAZON.

Join a spunky collection of paintbrushes as they set out to create a grand masterpiece.

When some of the brushes don’t cooperate, is it because they are misbehaving…or is there another reason entirely? In this story, an initiative of REED Foundation for Autism, young readers are introduced to some of the behavioral differences in their peers with autism.

This was actually a really tricky one. Each island had to be illustrated as if it was a single illustration with all the insane amount of details, then I painted the overall scenery, connected all the islands with paths, added the background for the space and sky and edited all togheter in Photoshop, although the original illustrations and 99% of the actual painting was done in Clip Studio Paint.

What you´re looking at is one of my new books which is about to be released in the United States, written by Jay Miletsky and it´s part of a more extensive children´s books series to be continued.

I´m currently completing illustrating book 2 which will come out in August of this year and soon there will be more news regarding these same characters as there are some plans out there for some extra stuff coming out of this concept.

Page turn first look out of printer.

Actually this is a book sponsored by the REED FOUNDATION for Autism (https://reedfoundationforautism.org/) base in the United States and although it´s not one of those “in your face” type stories the subjacent theme can be read as something related to that.

I had a ton of fun illustrating this and working with the author, Jay Miletsky has been a blast. We now have three books togheter and hopefuly there will be plenty more in the future.

I´ll post images of the book soon and a link for amazon once this book 1 comes out.

Here´s an old pic I had around for ages and which I decided to finish because I´m currently filling my portfolio with movie poster illustrations as a base for an online illustration workshop I´m planning too.
This was related to one of my favorite modern low budget independent space operas, the movie HUMANITY´S END as I always had this idea for a sequel and so when I met Neil Johnson the director online it was the perfect excuse to send him my movie plug for another movie.
So this is my fake movie poster for a sequel that I wished already existed. 😉

HUMANITIES END 2-TITLES-1250X

HUMANITIES END 2-1250X

You can check my original movie review and although it´s in Portuguese you can use my online google translator to get a general idea about why I love this movie and characters.
Oh..and the soundtrack is amazing !

I rarely do “fan art” , almost never actually but I had this unfinished pic around for ages and recently when talking with the director Neil Johnson online I mentioned to him that I had this around and so I decided to polish it.
Also my ClipStudio Paint got a new update and it was a good way to test it.
Besides the only fan part here in this new pic are actually the Sienna and Hoagland characters, the hero and the floating robot. Everything else is part of my own imagination and universe as I love to insert my own landscapes to create almost like an alternative version of the original product.

I absolutely love to create scifi cover art and illustrate movie posters based on stuff that does not exist and so this one was my take on a possible sequel for the Sienna adventures if they would be done with my visual colorful style instead.

All my work is very influenced by Cinema.
Currently my favorite low budget space opera saga is centered around the work of director Neil Johnson which has made one of my favorite space adventures of recent years; a movie called Humanity´s End. A low budget production which is a lot of fun, visually amazing and with an great soundtrack too.

Another  recent Neil Johnson space opera it was called Rogue Warrior : Robot Fighter which tells the adventures of Sienna; a character played by actress Tracey Birdsall,  which is like a female space pilot with a particular Heavy Metal Magazine and Barbarella type feel.

Here´s what I did with some variations included.

As i´m planning to create an entire new portfolio based on movie poster artwork, this conversation with Neil Johnson gave me the perfect reason to start. So expect to see more movie posters in the near future.
