“THE RIDE”

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 sketch - 1250x
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.

HUMANIT´S END – MOVIE POSTER ART

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.

ROGUE WARRIOR : ROBOT FIGHTER 2

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.

SIENNA 1B-1977-1250XROGUE- POSTER 2A NOTEXT-1250xSIENNA 1B_pe-WAYOFTEXTURE-1250XSIENNA 1B-SEPIA-1250XSIENNA 1B_pe-VINTAGEPOSTCARD-1250XSIENNA 1B_pe-VINTAGELOMORED-1250XSIENNA 1B_pe-SINCITY-1250XSIENNA 1B_pe-SEPIA_1250XSIENNA 1B_pe-RUNGE17IMAGES_1250XSIENNA 1B_pe-PORTRAITGRADIENTVIGNETTE-1250XROGUE- SIENNA 1B-1250XROGUE- SIENNA 1A-1250XROGUE- POSTER 1B-RAW-1250XROGUE- POSTER 1A-RAW-1250X

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.

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.

GENERATION MARS: THE GARDEN – Step by Step Making Of

Here´s an example of the type of pics I don´t do very often as they require a lot of human character figures which is something I have not much interest in creating (or talent for) as I preffer to focus on environments instead.

4 FOREST-C - frame - 1250x.jpg

But now and then like in the case of this exciting story by Douglas Meredith about Mars for book One of the Generation Mars series, I do need to create something like this. So I´ll go and do a mix between matte-painting and regular digital painting if I can call it that…
Anyway here´s a breakdown of how I did this one image for the book for all you guys and girls out there that enjoy seeing how an image comes togheter.

Space Opera Toon Style Poster

This one came out of the blue. I had this project to do with some subjective guidelines as the image had to have the company logo and be about space; and so things just started to happen. After a character came another and I decided to create some sort of animation movie poster for a movie that does not exist.

Huion-Universe_2060x

Much of this started to pick up references from known stuff from modern popular culture, such as Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Star Wars and all that, but actually the real base foundation for this idea came from the old Buster Crabe , Flash Gordon serials from the 1930s and also from the old E.E.Doc Smith 1940s Space Opera pulp fiction novels, like “Space Hunters” or “Lord Tedric” which defined and invented back then what nowadays we see in modern encarnations of the genre like Star Wars for example.

Much of my scifi work is heavily inspired by the old scifi pulp novel classics from the early XXth century, like John Carter, or from the early scifi movies like Things to Come, Forbidden Planet and such.

This one just happens to be in a toon style similar to the one I also used several years ago on my fantasy/scifi comics, “Once Upon a Time on Mars“.

Goodbye Photoshop, Hello Clip Studio Paint : “West of Oz” – First Clip Studio painting.

And after more than 15 years using Photoshop for most of my original illustration/concept-art work stuff, I´m replacing it with Clip Studio Paint ( also known as Manga Studio in Japan ).
It can do most of the things I did with Photoshop when it comes to creating a painting, the layers work the same way, etc, but it comes with some really cool pre-made brushes that I love to use. Also it has some great comic creation features which are outstanding.

I´ll probably post a review about it sometime in the near future but for now here´s the first illustration I created with Clip Studio Paint.
Inspired a bit by the OZ world and so I´ve called it “West of Oz” just because.

cpt01-WESTOFOZ-1250X

All Clip Studio Paint.
Don´t let the name of the software fool you, it is not a clipart creation tool but a fully developed software for painting and illustration. Thing of a cross between the classic Painter with plenty of the Photoshop advantages mixed in and you get Clip Studio Paint.
It is known as Manga Studio in Japan but the name is also not very good there too because people may think this is just something to create Manga, which again, it is not.
I have no idea why somebody didn´t give this amazing full illustration creative painting tool a really good name that reflects the true nature of what it can do but for now we´re stuck with “Clip Studio Paint” which must be the most awful and misleading name someone ever gave to an amazing painting sofware.

clip

There´s two versions available, the regular version which costs less than $50 and it´s a bargain and there´s the pro version called “EX” which has aditional settings and tools for professional printing setup, animation tools and some extra bits more oriented to professional production. If you just want to paint and create illustrations or do some comics for pure pleasure or for learning get the regular version and you won´t be disapointed for sure.

More on this sometime in the future when I get to write a review about it.
For now I know that it is good enough for me to cancel my Photoshop subscription. I bought the Clip Studio Paint EX version and so I guess Adobe just lost a client to Manga Studio.
