“ATTACK ALL HUMANS” – BOARD GAME – Atlantis Expansion

Here´s some initial work I´ve been doing for the new expansions of the upcoming board game “ATTACK ALL HUMANS”.
This first expansion is all about Ancient Aliens themes and so this first one is my take on Atlantis.

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.

The Searchers – Scifi Cover Art Illustration

This is my first 2019 pic and it was just done for fun and for portfolio. Inspired by the classic John Wayne western “The Searchers” this is my scifi take on it and the idea was to also depict my style of cover art for science fiction novels.

“ATTACK ALL HUMANS” – Board game Illustration 3 – Tonal variations.

Another one of the digital paintings 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 played with to experiment with colors back then.

This is heavily inspired in the old 50s flying saucers invasion movies, but now we are the aliens invading the earth which is a lot more fun.
More info on the project status here in its FB group:

More on this project soon. 😉

Goodbye Photoshop, Hello Clip Studio Paint : “West of Oz – Do Not Feed The Fish” – Third Clip Studio painting.

Continuing to test my new Clip Studio Paint here´s another pic I just did.
I guess my, “West of Oz” idea is becoming a series of pics now, so here´s another one : “WEST OF OZ – DO NOT FEED THE FISH”. I might end up doing a Kickstarter illustration book with this stuff one of this days or something…
This is also a good example of my love for color… if you haven´t noticed it…

This one is a very good example of why I tend not to work with sketches at all. 99% of the time my end image has absolutely nothing with the original idea sketched and so that is why I rarely show any sketches to anyone. My paintings are very organic and totally unplanned. I like to build and image not knowing what will look like at the end because if I pre-plan a painting with sketchs , in my mind the vision is already there and then it becomes a chore to complete and refine the image which sometimes can take more than 20 hours to do. So I preffer  to go into a painting not having any idea of how it can look like in the end. This is why I do not like to send sketches anywhere to depict what I can do for a project because what I can do never has anything to do in the end with the sketch I send in the first place.
Too bad I didn´t saved the original sketch work for this image because you would not believe what it was going to be my initial idea , haha.

After more than 15 years using Photoshop for most of my original illustration/concept-art work stuff, I´m replacing it with Clip Studio Paint ( also known as Manga Studio in Japan ).
It can do most of the things I did with Photoshop when it comes to creating a painting, the layers work the same way, etc, but it comes with some really cool pre-made brushes that I love to use. Also it has some great comic creation features which are outstanding.

Don´t let the name of the software fool you, it is not a clipart creation tool but a fully developed software for painting and illustration. Thing of a cross between the classic Painter with plenty of the Photoshop advantages mixed in and you get Clip Studio Paint.
It is known as Manga Studio in Japan but the name is also not very good there too because people may think this is just something to create Manga, which again, it is not.
I have no idea why somebody didn´t give this amazing full illustration creative painting tool a really good name that reflects the true nature of what it can do but for now we´re stuck with “Clip Studio Paint” which must be the most awful and misleading name someone ever gave to an amazing painting sofware.

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

“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.
