SKETCH : “West of Oz” – Pic 6 : Work in Progress Phase III

I think that finally this is now starting to take shape and going into a direction I like. I was having problems in trying to keep the idea of a vast landscape because my main characters now dominated the pic too much and what I want to achieve with my illustrations is not to depict characters but mainly create environments. Characters in my art are always there more to give scale to my landscapes than anything else and so because now these two dominant ones, the creature and the girl started to become even more dominant I was looking for a way to also focus attention on the background.
Let´s see where this will take me then.
Here´s some pics more from this work in progress.

Space Opera Toon Style Poster

This one came out of the blue. I had this project to do with some subjective guidelines as the image had to have the company logo and be about space; and so things just started to happen. After a character came another and I decided to create some sort of animation movie poster for a movie that does not exist.

Much of this started to pick up references from known stuff from modern popular culture, such as Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Star Wars and all that, but actually the real base foundation for this idea came from the old Buster Crabe , Flash Gordon serials from the 1930s and also from the old E.E.Doc Smith 1940s Space Opera pulp fiction novels, like “Space Hunters” or “Lord Tedric” which defined and invented back then what nowadays we see in modern encarnations of the genre like Star Wars for example.

Much of my scifi work is heavily inspired by the old scifi pulp novel classics from the early XXth century, like John Carter, or from the early scifi movies like Things to Come, Forbidden Planet and such.

This one just happens to be in a toon style similar to the one I also used several years ago on my fantasy/scifi comics, “Once Upon a Time on Mars“.

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”.

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.

“BEWARE OF THE NOSE BITING MONSTER” : Page MAKING OF – Digital Painting Video Tutorial

“BEWARE OF THE NOSE BITING MONSTER” : Page MAKING OF – Digital Painting Video Tutorial

Here´s a first glimpse out of a current project I´m now working on. It´s a childrens book written by author Jay Miletsky , called “BEWARE OF THE NOSE BITING MONSTER : A Cautionary Tale for Petrified Parents” and it´s a really great story; challenging to illustrate because most of the story is based on emotion and features only two characters but it´s been real fun to paint.
So for now, here´s a small making of video for one of the pages.

Little Witch

OldWork-logo

This is just the first test I did on an illustration for a commissioned set of pics to illustrate a poetry childrens book some years ago.
I wanted to try and see what color mood could work best for a background setting.
Actually this simple version ended up looking like a greeting card somehow…hmmmm………
Here´s the final version along with some images from the creation process.

This illustration was still made at the time when I mostly illustrated in traditional mediums and I only used digital for small things like the backgraound here.
Nowadays I work mostly in digital simply because of the freedom it allows when we need to make some serious changes on a pic.
But what you are seeing below are still sketches from the time I used real paper and pencil.
