“THE HIDDEN SPACESHIP” : MAKING OF “ALIEN PLANET”

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.

“MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING DAYS” – Illustration / Concept Art

“MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING DAYS”

As I´ll be illustrating for a board game next before I started that project I wanted to warm up so I created another of my Martian illustrations which I plan to turn into a Mars book one day perhaps.
This one was inspired by the Terraforming concept for Mars and so it depicts the time when man is already changing the surface of the planet for sometime and things are starting to show some changes.

Columns_of_mars3FB_1500X

When I get to do a book with all my Mars images you´ll be the first to know. For now I´m just having fun painting this stuff to relax from my earthly children book projects for clients. You can see a larger version for this image if you visit my main gallery right at my “HOME” page.

I´ll post the making of for this pic tomorrow with the usual step-by-step creation process as I usually do with some of my paintings posted here on this freelance illustration website.

“SPACEPORT” : Concept Illustration – Step by Step – from an old vintage photo to a spaceport on an jungle alien world.

DRAWING TUT-logo

“SPACEPORT” : Concept Illustration – Step by Step – from an old photo to a spaceport on an jungle alien world.

And here´s another step-by-step depiction of the creative process behind one of my images. This time I took a different approach and started this spaceport scene out of a common atmospheric photograph from England I found on the web.
I liked the mood and the light and so I just started to doodle and sketching on top of it.
I did so much sketching over it that it ended up becoming the final spaceport maybe deep into some kind of jungle planet you see in the final result.

“FORBIDDEN WORLD – FLIGHT TO VENUS” : RETRO SCI-FI Illustration

“FORBIDDEN WORLD” : RETRO SCI-FI Illustration

Here´s one I did sometime ago just for fun which turned out to be licenced for prints and posters. I love old science fiction in the style of Forbidden Planet; ( I even have a movie blog about that ) and so stuff like rocketships from the golden age of science fiction is something that tends to pop up a lot in my artwork, particularly when I´m doing it to have fun. The idea behind this one was to somehow create like a movie poster-banner for an old sci-fi film but with somehow a modern look.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

One of the things I love is to work with matte-painting although I rarely have time to do that in between my other children´s books illustration commissions but now an then I get my hands on my favorite topics and just go for it.

flight-to-venus-fake-movie-poster-luis-peres

Unfortunelly my old hard drive crashed real bad a couple years ago and I lost the original files for this one so now I only have this low res to showcase here; although I still have this image on sale in one of my online print pod galleries if you happen to like this one. 😉

flight-to-venus-fake-movie-poster-luis-peres-framed
I plan to create more images with this technique later when I get to find the time to do it in between my regular illustration commissions. If you like matte-paintings click here to take a look at another one I did recently.

“CRUSADER” : MATTE PAINTING Test & Color / Tonal varations

“CRUSADER” : MATTE PAINTING Test & Color / Tonal varations

Although most of my work is done purely in “traditional” illustration despite me using digital painting techniques to draw and render my fantasy/science-fiction/Children´s-Book artwork, one area that fascinates me is that of matte-paiting when it conserns the extension of landscapes that can also be generated with photo collage , sometimes photo-bashing at their base.

matte 01-cinematic-lucid

So this an experiment of mine in creating fantasy landscape using all sorts of image manipulation with a lot of “traditional painting” on top of everything to make all the elements come togheter in one single piece. Usually you see these types of images done for movies, either for concept art or for final renders you get to see on the screen.
Here´s some tonal and color variations that can be achieved digitaly after the original digital painting/illustration is rendered initialy.

matte 01-adjust
matte 01-bw1
matte 01-cinematic-distant
matte 01-bw3
matte 01-classic-dawn-light
matte 01-classic-mini-oven
matte 01-classic-nostalgic
matte 01-classic-pitsburgh
matte 01-classic-whisper
matte 01-classix-mini-oven2
matte 01-crusader-food
matte 01-crusader-theater
matte 01-disposable-olden
matte 01-lightleaken-boken
matte 01-lomo-blue-sepia
matte 01-lomo-lomo
matte 01-lomo-nashville
matte 01-lomo-sepia-glow
matte 01-lomo-sutro fx
matte 01-mono-noir
matte 01-retro-pale-ocre
matte 01-retro-purple
matte 01-retro-warm
matte 01-serenity-bloom
matte 01-serenity-degraded
matte 01-vintage-sepia1

I plan to create more images with this technique later when I get to find the time to do it in between my regular illustration commissions.

“RETRO ROCKET : Vintage Style Scifi” : Making Of – Step by Step

DRAWING TUT-logo

One thing that I love is old scifi from the rocket-age of science fiction, so I´m always getting inspiration from that stuff. Movies like “THINGS TO COME” or “FORBIDDEN PLANET” are among my all time favorites and are a great source of ideas. In this case this pic was actually inspired by the late 70s Filmation Flash Gordon animated series and so here it is step by step in case you want to learn how to create an illustration like this using only simple shapes and playing with perspective.
