I Create Worlds.net

 

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 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 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.

Check out the making of video below:

Recently completed map for an upcoming board game.
Here´s some of the images and a sneak peek at the making of too because I know there´s a lot of people out there who enjoy to see how this things are done.

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.

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.

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 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.

Here´s a breakdown of most steps I took to do this “WEST OF OZ 9 : PINK BUNNY MECH BORDER PATROL” pic.

cpt10-MKF-SCREEN01

As usual I don´t do any sketches or plan a thing and I just paint until I find something that I like. If I planned anything I would never complete a pic because my imagination would already be in the next one and would be bored to death just cleaning and rendering an image that I knew exactly how it would turn out in the end and I don´t like that at all.

cpt10-MKF-SCREEN03

I like to go with the flow and simply paint it raw and direct from start to finish not knowing what I will be doing in the next minute with the image. Also I like to see how a painting changes during my creative process and this one is no exception.
So here it goes the making of for this one too.

This was the first pic I did with my brand new HUION GT221 PRO wich I won a couple of weeks on the Huion illustration contest, and I´m still adjusting my painting style to cope with the new pen pressure levels of this new Huion pen. Also, the software used here is once again Clip Studio Paint as I gave up on the expensive and heavy Photoshop for good.
