HUMANIT´S END – MOVIE POSTER ART

Here´s an old pic I had around for ages and which I decided to finish because I´m currently filling my portfolio with movie poster illustrations as a base for an online illustration workshop I´m planning too.
This was related to one of my favorite modern low budget independent space operas, the movie HUMANITY´S END as I always had this idea for a sequel and so when I met Neil Johnson the director online it was the perfect excuse to send him my movie plug for another movie.
So this is my fake movie poster for a sequel that I wished already existed. 😉

HUMANITIES END 2-TITLES-1250X

HUMANITIES END 2-1250X

You can check my original movie review and although it´s in Portuguese you can use my online google translator to get a general idea about why I love this movie and characters.
Oh..and the soundtrack is amazing !

I rarely do “fan art” , almost never actually but I had this unfinished pic around for ages and recently when talking with the director Neil Johnson online I mentioned to him that I had this around and so I decided to polish it.
Also my ClipStudio Paint got a new update and it was a good way to test it.
Besides the only fan part here in this new pic are actually the Sienna and Hoagland characters, the hero and the floating robot. Everything else is part of my own imagination and universe as I love to insert my own landscapes to create almost like an alternative version of the original product.

I absolutely love to create scifi cover art and illustrate movie posters based on stuff that does not exist and so this one was my take on a possible sequel for the Sienna adventures if they would be done with my visual colorful style instead.

Goodbye Photoshop, Hello Clip Studio Paint : “West of Oz – Tree of Knowledge” – Fourth Clip Studio painting.

And yet another Clip Studio Paint illustration. Still ajusting to this brand new software after years working with Photoshop. So here´s one pic more inspired by the Oz ( and The Neverending Story ) universe(s). It seems at this pace I will be building enough material to create a themed illustration book of my own in no time too.
So here it goes: “WEST OF OZ – TREE OF KNOWLEDGE”.

cpt04_FINAL-1250X.jpg

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.

“ALISON the SEA TURTLE” – Childrens Book Artwork

Just a glimpse of what I can show out of an old project for what was to be an upcoming new publishing company years ago but which I never got to ear from anymore. They had a bunch of titles to release but somehow things seem to have been halted until now. Less uncommon than people tend to think actually.
So anyway, here´s a few sample pages from what I can show you of this one project I did for them at the time.

“MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING TECH – GAIA 2” – Illustration / Concept Artwork – Making Of / Step-by-Step creative breakdown.

And here´s the step-by-step for this one. This pic started when I mirrored one of the sides from the illustration I did last time and then I got this idea. Started to paint on top of the original painting modifying stuff as I went along and so the end result was something like this:

People keep asking where I get the idea for my pics. Well, I read a lot. Reading books makes you use your imagination and so I have a lot of practice in imaginining stuff. If you want to learn how to draw, read books, ( not picture books, but novels ) as that will make you imagine stuff a lot and so when it comes to drawing being able to visualize something in your mind is very important.
Also on inspiration, when it comes to Mars in particularly  I have my own interest on the subject for decades now and in particularly the Cydonia/Face on Mars controversy so I have a ton of inspiration material from that too. Also I´ve listened to the Art Bell talk radio show for ages when he still was on the air and so there´s no short of ideas from that too.

If you like Art Bell, there´s a great alternative to his show that you may not know about it. It´s called “THE UNEXPLAINED.TV” hosted by the British journalist Howard Hughes and it´s the next best thing to Bell you ever eard, as this guy is as good as he was when Art did his radio show. The unexplainded.tv site has already a ton of fascinating interviews on podcast that will fire your imagination too. I listen to that a lot when I´m painting; this pic was done listening to one of his old Mars shows.

“ROCKET GAMES” – SCIENCE FICTION SKETCH ILLUSTRATION / CONCEPT ART

“ROCKET GAMES” – SCIENCE FICTION SKETCH ILLUSTRATION / CONCEPT ART

I rarely have time to just paint something for me in between regular children books commissions but now and then I take a few minutes to just doodle some image that comes into my mind all of a sudden.
This is another of those concept art doodles I guess. It may look a bit more complicated to untrained eyes than actually is because of the colors and all that, but this painting is more of a color sketch than anything else as it is something that if I want to take to a whole different level I could detail this pic until I drop to the side.
In this case, this painting didn´t take too long also because I love to keep that original organic feel.
Anyway, this is also a good example of the type of artwork that I like to create for book covers for example and so if you have a book for me to illustrate out there, by all means… let me know. 😉
