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

“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.

“WEST OF OZ : PIC 8 – ROCKET TOWN” Making of.

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.

SKETCH : “West of Oz ” – Pic 8 : Work in Progress – Phase I

Just another pic for myself I´m working on. I´m in the middle of another complex children book commission, of which as it tends to be, I cannot show anything on my pages yet  because contractual reasons and so I need to have something to keep posting on this blog.
I started this pic yesterday without a single idea in mind as usual and so let´s see where this one goes or even if I get to complete it.

“ELDORADO SPACEPORT” – Blender ANIMATICS – Test 3

“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.

Secondary concept art / sketchbook tests or illustrations I didn´t used.

Secondary concept art / sketchbook tests or illustrations I didn´t used.

When you work fulltime in illustration you end up doing a ton of stuff you never show anyone. Either test pics, speedpainting images, illustration experiments or just loose sketches created for fun, each illustrator has plenty of stuff like which mostly never gets to see the light of day.
In this batch now, there´s some test pics, illustration I didn´t liked, illustration I like but didn´t used because I want to create better versions, or early color tests, pics I did just to illustrate video tutorials, sketchbook color stuff, etc.

Some people out there are of the opinion that an artist should never reveal his inferior artwork or –making of– test pieces because that can give a wrong impression of his work quality in general to potential clients out there. I do not agree.

I´ve always showcased my best and my worst stuff all over the places and I never got less clients or commissions because of that. In fact people like to see that illustrators are not those magic crafters that can come up with imaginary worlds out of thin air when they want and so I like to let people see that I have plenty of stuff done which is just as bad or regular as any other person out there.
I have a lot more regular pieces like this spread around my “failed pics” folders through out my hardrives and so now and then I´ll show you more, for now hope you have enjoyed  these.

MY ORIGINAL INSPIRATION SOURCE / A MINHA FONTE DE INSPIRAÇÃO ORIGINAL

O trabalho que inspirou a minha história de aventuras Marcianas está no conteúdo deste meu outro site.
Publicado originalmente no Forúm DVD Mania (em 2004) , expandido e actualizado dez anos mais tarde ( e a precisar já de nova actualização ) este foi o material que acompanhou a minha imaginação/investigação e que pode ( e deve) ser lido como complemento da Banda Desenhada pois contextualiza muito do humor contido na história. O objectivo do site ( e do post no Forúm DVD Mania ) foi mesmo o de apresentar em Português com uma organização coerente muito sobre este tópico que só existe na sua maioria em inglês e também tentar separar as idiotices imbecis que já se escreveram sobre o tema ao logo dos anos daquilo que realmente tem mesmo interesse enigmático e científico sobre o mesmo e que não podia estar mais na ordem do dia apesar de não se notar absolutamente nada sobre isso em Portugal.
Portanto se quiserem perceber o verdadeiro contexto da minha banda-desenhada de Fantasia os links a consultar estão nas imagens abaixo. 😉

Drawing Tutorial : “OZ – Looking for Dorothy” – Making of

DRAWING TUT-logo

And this time here´s the step-by-step process from  my OZ pic.
It´s called “Looking for Dorothy”.
It´s more or less self-explanatory as a drawing tutorial so I hope everyone understands the several creative choices I went through from start to finish to create the image.
One of the things I love the most is to take known stuff and give it my own spin. The Wizard of Oz books and movie are part of my inspiration when it comes to my imaginary worlds and so I tend to go back to it just for fun or when someone commissions me “an Oz style” pic which happens more than often.
This was just another one.

Concept_Art_07_Wizard_of_OZ_site

You might notice there aren´t many characters in my landscapes and this is because what I really love is to create imaginary geographies and fantasy worlds.
Characters bore me to death and I only illustrate them mostly for scale or when I have to because I´m working on a childrens book.
When I was a kid I absolutely hated those illustrated children books that were set in imaginary worlds but then, the only thing the books had illustrated in them were the characters and what they were doing ( sometimes with a little bit of background behind them ). What I always wanted to see were the worlds where these characters lived in and soon I started to notice that illustrators mostly did character based images for these books rather than illustrating the imaginary worlds.
That has always been my inspiration.
As everyone always asks me for tutorials and tips on how to paint my type of imaginary stuff  you can find my tutorials on perspective if you click here ( go check them out / read the first one and then follow through my “perspective tutorial series ).
Then you´ll understand better what follows.
Here´s a breakdown for this “Wizard of Oz” pic.

 

To illustrate imaginary worlds as a freelancer children book illustrator or freelance artist available for work I based my portfolio on the worlds I can imagine rather than on the characters that can inhabit those places as from what I see out there most illustrators work on characters and not on environments, except in concept art.
So my idea was always think about illustration for a book the same way I have to think about creating concept art. I guess my children book illustrations like this OZ inspired one above show a bit of that concept art influence and that is something that I like to showcase.
