Just another of my “test pics” to play around with the new Surface Pro 6 I got some days ago. See my other post below for more details on this device.

Although I thought I was never going to own a Windows device ever again as I trully love the way Mac fits all my illustration needs, recently I got a new SURFACE PRO 6 and so I installed my faithful Clip Studio Paint EX and started to test it out.
These were my first two sort of speed painting examples I created with the help also of that amazing digital pen that you can buy with the Surface hardware.

summer night - 1250X

Actually I found illustrating with the Surface Pro 6 a lot more difficult or less intuitive than if I´m working with IPad Pro for a simple reason. I totally forgot that despite looking like a tablet the Surface are not tablets, but mainly are PCs that look like tablets. This means that for example a software like Clip Studio Paint just works as it does on a regular desktop. If you have a keyboard attached you can use shortcuts while painting but it you want to try to emulate a painting tablet with it, it takes some time and a lot of frustration before you discover that the touch shortcuts like “undo” or “copy” , etc that are so easy and intuitive to work with your fingers on PROCREATE on an IPad , these don´t exist on a Surface Pro running any illustration software. This means that what we can only do is use our digital pencil as a mouse and work through each of the available pulldown menu options on each software to do everything we need to do. Exactly as if we were working on a pc without a keyboard.

summer night FINAL-RUST-1250X

This does not mean the Surface is not a cool hardware. When we find the balance between not being able to use it as a painting touch tool and we adapt to that frustrating thing of having to use our pencil as a mouse to turn on each and every option of a painting software, if you want portability and also want a PC , the Surface is a good buy.
But if you´re an artist looking for portability and a more touch and go feel to the way you paint, then I would advise buying the IPad PRO instead.

Anyway, this was my first atempt at painting with Surface Pro and was inspired by a Jim Steinman /  Meat Loaf song ” On a Hot Summer Night” actually.

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.

Desert Run color 3 - 1250x

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 color 2 - 1250x

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 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.

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.

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

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.

As I´ve been getting a lot of requests from people who want to buy my tutorials on how I create this sort of landscapes, this new image ended up being like a test of mine for several techniques used to give life to a digital painting.

STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT” – Inspired by Blade Runner, Frank Sinatra and Film Noir/Casablanca.

And here in its Film Noir version to fit the atmosphere properly.

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.

For those who enjoy taking a look at how some books are illustrated here´s an example of one from some years ago.
Usually I don´t storyboard much but sometimes when a narrative is based on details that visually need to be constructed with abstract items like splatters for stars, the visual composition needs to be cinematic and work from page to page, etc, I tend to plan the book ahead shot by shot as if it was a movie.
This is a good example of what I do.  It´s all about the narrative and what a narrative needs and so each book presents it´s own challenges and needs different construction approaches so there´s not just one single method for me.
What follows is just an example of how was done for this one.

This is the Area-51 pic created for the new ATTACK ALL HUMANS – Board Game Expansion.
Here are three slightly different tonal variations I came up with.

area 51-1500x

area 51_earlybirdfx-1500x

area 51_lomofx-1500x

The game is still being tested, but if you want to check out how the gameplay will be take a look at this Youtube video from “Board to Death” :

 

The expansions will be the center of a new Kickstarter campaign soon and there´s plans for a lot more if all goes well as usual when it comes to crowdfunding.
More news on this when I´ll get them too.
Right now I´m just creating the first expansion images.

Here´s one of the first Mars surface images I did for the upcoming Generation Mars book series. This first one in particular won´t be the one used in the book as the second version best suits the description of the whole place presented in the text.
The first one is actually one of my favorites anyway.

0000 - 11a mars-1250x

The one which was chosen by the author and was built based on his detailed input of where every item needed to be is the second version of this one below.
