“THE HIDDEN SPACESHIP ” : Making Of “The Cave”

So, here´s the making of, for this particularly scene in the book “THE HIDDEN SPACESHIP”.

Most of the painting work was done as usual in Clip Studio Paint because it´s a million times better to paint this type of stuff than Photoshop is nowadays.  I simply had to replace it with the old Manga Studio/Clip Studio Paint once I saw how light that awsome painting software is when compared to Photoshop which seems to be getting heavier and heavier everyday and one of these days there won´t even run on any machine. Contrary to what happens with Clip Studio Paint.

“The Masterpiece / One Big Canvas”” – Book 1 on the Studio PaintBrushes series.

Created for book 1 of a new series written by Jay Miletsky.
This one is called “The Masterpiece – One Big Canvas” and you can find it on AMAZON.

Join a spunky collection of paintbrushes as they set out to create a grand masterpiece.

When some of the brushes don’t cooperate, is it because they are misbehaving…or is there another reason entirely? In this story, an initiative of REED Foundation for Autism, young readers are introduced to some of the behavioral differences in their peers with autism.

“ZEN WORLD” – Fantasy Art

I´m not sure if this can be considered a matte-painting or not because I actually never know exctaly where the boundaries are on those things. Although it´s based on scenery extensions, a bit of photobashing and textures, there´s also a lot of painting all over the place to make this work, so I guess in the end this is another Fantasy painting of mine, just for fun in between commissions.

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

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.

Goodbye Photoshop, Hello Clip Studio Paint : “West of Oz – Choir Practice” – Fifth Clip Studio painting.

And here it is. I think I´m starting to get the grasp with this Clip Studio Paint now that I´ve abandoned Photoshop for good after more than a decade illustrating all my stuff with Adobe.
This is the end result for another test pic; “West of Oz : Choir Practice.

cpt05_FINAL_1250x

I did two color versions just to test some tonal variations.
You can see the making here in part 1 , part 2 and part 3 and Part 4.

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.

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”.
