Who doesn´t love some good old alien cow abduction ?

Yet another painting I did many months ago for the “ATTACK ALL HUMANS” board game, now in its test phase. These are a few of the tonal variations I did to play with color for this scene back then.

OldWork-logo

My transition from traditional acrylics, watercolor and ink illustration into digital was realy difficult. A nightmare actually. For years I thought I was never going to be able to do it and I was condemned to work traditionally forever.
Many times I´ve tried to adapt to digital art with no sucess whatsoever as I worked in traditional illustration for more than a decade before and perhaps because of that, somehow I had tremendous dificulty in converting my original style to the digital age.
I tried many softwares and failed at all of them. Several times.
One day I became part of a project for an History book and I forced myself to do it entirely in digital, even though I had no clue of what I was doing or how I was going to do it. Fortunately I was working with an author friend of mine and so the whole thing was more like and experiment for me where “failure” was an option.
The result was a mismash of mixed results and the book looked different from page to page,  as if many illustrators had worked on it and failed to some or many degrees. It got published nevertheless, it sold really well and it´s even now out of print which meant some readers out there must have liked it. Even though nowadays I find 99% of those illustrations almost embaracing as it´s still clear that I had no clue about what I was doing at that time and was just trying to paint digitaly out of fear of not being able to complete the task more than anything else.
For me in the end, it was an interesting project to learn how -not to illustrate- in digital. Nevertheless the end result, looking back now, still has some beginners charm in that -so bad , it´s good (?) – category.
You be the judge…


This book became something special in my own personal artistic evolution as it was from this “failed” experience I decided that I needed to really get the grasp with this digital thing even if it was the last thing I was going to do. Understanding –what not to do- in digital painting by forcing myself to illustrate “A Batalha do Arade” book,  set me on the right path to finally learn how to do it properly; taking advantage of all the digital options out there that at the time I had no clue that existed in the digital realm. From this project I started to go online looking for places to learn and came across the fantastic youtube channel from the FZDSCHOOL which actually saved my life and set me on the right path. I totally recommend that channel to all the people who want to learn how to draw and paint in digitial but not only.
As for my failed “A Batalha do Arade” book project, I just thought it was fun to share this here as the blog should also be about my failures and not just about the stuff that I get right. 😉

Not exactly my usual theme (I hate chickens) , but here´s a chicken pic I illustrated for a marketing studio sometime ago. This is the current campaign for an egg farm company here in Portugal using one of the images I did for their – Happy Chicken – brand.

I don´t have the  image version they picked here with me , which was the second version I did for them but it was all based on this original below.

” SPACE PORT – ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES”

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.

T4-FINAL-Arrivals-1250x

You can take a look at my review for the movie here at my blog. Use google translator form Portuguese into English. 😉

https://universosesquecidos.wordpress.com/…/natural…/

I was not in a rush and I painted in several days at the end of the day to relaxed from payed commission work.
I never do sketches, color tests, or anything related to any sort of planning whatsover.
All my “sketches” are done inside my imagination before a pic starts. When I have the visual “sketched” in my mind, ( color mood included ),  I just start to paint the pic and then the aditional texture work if needed brings it to life at the end.

I could have spent easily about 10 or 20 more hours on this just zooming in every detail and refining it to a point this would look almost photo realistic. Its easy for me to do that, but I don´t have time for creating “completed” paintings no more because I have commissions to do for other type of projects; usually children book stuff away from this type of art that I love.
Since I left Photoshop for good and started to paint witg Clip Studio Paint I actually like the way the brushes can give a more traditional feel to a paint rigth away and so I left this image in a rough phase because I like the “painting” feel where we see all the bush strokes and all that.

This also ended up with some sort of John Harris space art feel which was totally not intentional but unavoidable since his space scenes were really a big part of my childhoood back in the late 70s.

ESFS Nominations 2018 – I´m on it !

ESFS NOMINATIONS 2018
Hall of Fame Awards – Best Artist Nomination

Wow, I just got informed that I was nominated by the ” European Science Fiction Society” for the 2018 Award , related to Artist of the Year !

“The ESFS are happy to release the current nominees for the ESFS Achievement Awards and the ESFS Hall of Fame Awards. The winner of these awards will be selected at the next general meeting of the ESFS, which will take place at the 40th Eurocon which takes place in Amiens on the 19th to the 22nd of July.”

columns_of_mars-ESFS-Nomination

This came totally out of the blue. I had no idea they were even aware of my existence despite this society being on the field since 1972 promoting artists and works within fantasy themes, so it was with surprise that I just got the information that I was nominated to represent Portugal for this 2018 illustration award.

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.

“WEST OF OZ 9 : PINK BUNNY MECH BORDER PATROL”

My HUION GT221 PRO has just arrived. So this is my first test pic with it. It´s a lot different from my old GT220 in the sense that I´m still ajusting my painting style to cope with all the new pen pressure levels but this new Huion product sure is an outsanding alternative to the expensive Wacoms out there.
So anyway, here´s my first test pic. Another “West of Oz” pic for me as I´m starting to think about creating a book based on this concept of mine just for myself.

So here´s the complete step by step making of for this brand new one. This is actually a good example of one of my ideas change overtime during the making of an image and why I don´t plan anything in advance as it would be a waste of time in my worklow anyhow. 😉
The initial idea was to place some sort of fairy tale village against an epic crashed spaceship but then that got a bit abstract at some point. Then I thought about placing a character reading an Oz book, but then again my pics are not about characters but about environments . So finally I got the idea of the rocketship. It gave the perfect retro style I was searching for and at the same time it helped to give scale to the whole background.
Here it goes, from start to finish.
