Poster Artwork : Scifi Concept Art / 2001 A Space Odyssey / The Neverending Story inspired epic space scene.

This was my last Photoshop big painting before I moved into Clip Studio Paint. I love to create these epic space scenes and this one started also in Blender as I had created a space station model and I wanted to see how I could paint something based on that.
Then the need for this image came along and I thought it would be the perfect reason to try it out.
I love space art and in particularly vast epic scenery and backgrounds. I like a lot to build images based on little details, sometimes nothing more than silhouettes but I find them perfect to add scale to each of the imaginary universes I create.

Despite the obvious 2001 Space Odyssey inspiration you can relate too at first glance in fact this concept art painting has more to do with The Neverending Story than you can imagine by reading this.
If you know about that 1984 classic fantasy movie, ( and book ) , you´ll remember the first image of the Ivory Tower. Well that concept art matte painting thing changed my life when I was 14 and that is the reason why I wanted to became an illustrator. To create epic worlds like that.

There´s always a little bit of The Neverending Story in all my artworks and in this case despite the 2001 Monolith as the central piece if you know about the Neverending Story movie you´ll remember the floating asteroids scene at the end with the Ivory still standing floating alone among the stars. Well it´s no coincidence I´ve mixed both the Monolith here ( I needed it for the logo ) and the whole rusty color silhouette space background with that epic slab floating on a piece of rock.

Also there´s a bit of Flash Gordon in it too with the retro-50s-scifi rockets in there which I love to paint all the time too.

The foreground was the most difficult thing on this piece. It took forever to find the right balance between the characters and the focus of the image which should be the space scene outside.
Overall I do like the end result , which is not that usual as I tend to dislike all my paintings once they are finished.

“ELDORADO SPACEPORT” – Blender ANIMATICS

It was not in my plans to create an animation out of the low poly basic models I did in Blender sometime ago but things just kept building up and I ended up with a bunch of random animated “takes” somehow.
Then I thought that maybe they could be edited to form some sort of animatic although I never planned any logic into the thing when I first build this stuff.

Also it was never my intent to create a complete fully rendered animation or anything as I don´t have the hardware for more complicated adventures or time for 3D, unfortunately.

I built this “space city” model because I wanted to create some illustrations based on a pre-existing 3D Blender model to paint on top, but then I thought that as long as I had built it, I should try to animate it a bit…
A few weeks later I ended up with more than 40 different “animated takes”.

So what you see is a really rough space port thing. I had a lot of fun edditing all those bits togheter and adding the sound effects into it, using the amazing free video editing software HitFilm 4 Express which you can get at : https://hitfilm.com/express
If you found  that some bits had some fuzzy “narrative” logic that´s because I´ve worked with random takes which had no initial planning of being used to build a logical storyline animation. 😉

“SAVFK MUSIC”

The royalty free sound effects were taken from all over the internet here and there, but the awsome music soundtrack came from the Youtube Video ChannelSAVFK MUSIC at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXlppUGWeGtHBp_1xKsawmQ/featured

You can listen to the original track from Savfk before the effects, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A4Jak73Lao

And so I guess this is it. Just another animatic created for fun.

“LIGHT YEARS” – ANIMATIC

What follows is an animatic and some concept art, out of what started as a regular project but now has also become a portfolio piece for me. It´s the first time I use a 3D software to create the base for illustrations and in this case I used Blender from Blender.org to create the next animation.
Unfortunately my old 2011 hardware is no match for the current rendering requirements out of these programs and so instead of a fully complete high res detailed model animation I was only able to do the  rough animatics which you can see below.
Nevertheless the idea was mostly to give some depth to the original 2D work I did out of the first Blender model work and so for now it´s enough for my objective here. Enjoy.

Each 12 seconds of this simple animatic took me about 18 hours to render and this was in low res, so you can guess how old my 2011 hardware now has become. It´s good for traditional digital painting but I know that if I want to continue with this animation experiments I will need to get a new computer soon.

Of course these types of pics can reach the level we want but for me this was a test and so let´s see how this goes when related to future projects using these same techniques.
