“AS AVENTURAS DO PRÍNCIPE ZIPH” : POD Print on Demand HARDCOVER EDITION

These are some photos from the first test print edition I created several years ago with the original Portuguese version of my comics, “AS AVENTURAS DO PRÍNCIPE ZIPH – EM BUSCA DO LIVRO PERDIDO” ( “THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH – IN SEARCH OF THE LOST BOOK” ), then renamed “ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS” which I like best.
It´s a print on demand HARDCOVER edition and this book contains all the 4 volumes I later printed as separated editions for the English version.
So this original hardcover Portuguese edition contains the entire 190 pages of original comic art in one single hardcover book.

I used the services of lulu.com which for me is still the best company out there to print these types of books and I was really happy with the result as this book turned out great; excelent printing, perfect color reproduction, excelent hardcover,etc.
Below, the original cover I did for this PT hardcover POD printing.

MY ORIGINAL INSPIRATION SOURCE / A MINHA FONTE DE INSPIRAÇÃO ORIGINAL ( this bit only needs to be in Portuguese ) 😉

O trabalho que inspirou a minha história de aventuras Marcianas está no conteúdo deste meu outro site.
Publicado originalmente no Forúm DVD Mania (em 2004) , expandido e actualizado dez anos mais tarde ( e a precisar já de nova actualização ) este foi o material que acompanhou a minha imaginação/investigação e que pode ( e deve) ser lido como complemento da Banda Desenhada pois contextualiza muito do humor contido na história. O objectivo do site ( e do post no Forúm DVD Mania ) foi mesmo o de apresentar em Português com uma organização coerente muito sobre este tópico que só existe na sua maioria em inglês e também tentar separar as idiotices imbecis que já se escreveram sobre o tema ao logo dos anos daquilo que realmente tem mesmo interesse enigmático e científico sobre o mesmo e que não podia estar mais na ordem do dia apesar de não se notar absolutamente nada sobre isso em Portugal.
Portanto se quiserem perceber o verdadeiro contexto da minha banda-desenhada de Fantasia os links a consultar estão nas imagens abaixo. 😉

“ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS : THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH” – VOLUME TWO ; FANTASY / SCI-FI COMICS ; (2009 Version : Traditional Watercolors / Acrylics / Color Pencils ).

OldWork-logo

You can learn more details about this old comics project of mine if you click on this link ( you can also download a free pdf for this SECOND book ).
Now the idea here is to post my story , page by page as many people like to scroll up and down to read this things as it is now and not everyone downloads pdfs at random just to check stuff up. Click here to read PART ONE on the last post I did.

“ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS : THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH” – VOLUME TWO ; FANTASY / SCI-FI COMICS ; (2009 Version : Traditional Watercolors / Acrylics / Color Pencils ).

This “ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS” was one of my last personal projects created entirely in traditional medium; it took me 5 years to complete this ( between my other professional graphic design work for a software house ) and it was created , drawn and painted with real color pencils, acrylics and watercolors.
This 2009 version created between 2004 and 2009 was actually a “new” version for this idea which I had in my imagination since I was 17 back in 1987 when I did the first version.

0001 Capa2_FRENTE

When the internet came along , I discovered, “Coast to Coast AM”; “Art Bell” ; “Richard Hoagland” ; “George Noory” ; “Graham Hancock” and all you can imagine if you know what I´m talking about and all that stuff started to morph into a new version of my old fantasy “The Hobbit style” adventure. My old Thorondor world became part of an ancient Mars and so this new ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS was born.
I created this just for fun, to experiment, to learn and to also use some of the images in my portfolio and it worked because it got me many commissions at the time when I was going fulltime treelance with this illustration thing.

I plan to remake this and correct all the narrative / pacing issues one of these days in full digital , but for now here´s “the original”. Enjoy ; ( English version revised by Will Kallif from StormTheCastle.com (Thanks Will) ).
This entire work was done without any planning whatsoever. I had no idea what was going to happen in the next page as I never plan any of my stories and so this is a good example of what usually comes out… good and bad. 😉
I´ll post Book 3 later. For now here´s the SECOND CHAPTER continuing the adventure.

NEW SITE / BLOG : ICREATEWORLDS.NET

Well, my new site is up. And this time I´m in wordpress. After testing several platforms I came to the conclusion this one was the best for me for the way it allows me the perfect integration between a regular portfolio site for my artwork and all the power a wordpress blog has.

new_site

So this will now be my home. My idea is to use the site as my porfolio to showcase some of my artwork around but also to play with the blog and not only post some tutorials when I get the time to create them, but also talk about all the stuff that inspires me.
I get a lot of questions from people wanting to learn how to get into this illustration thing; how to carve your own niche and all that and so I´ll try to post some articles based on my experience. It´s just my point of view, but one thing that I found over the years illustrating professionally as a freelancer is that the world is really big and so the good news is there is room for everyone.
The bad news… the world is really big. 🙂

avatar teste3

Also on this blog, you´ll find articles about stuff that inspires me to create my artwork. I get a ton of inspiration from books, music and of course movies along with talk radio and audio books and so to answer the old question : where do you get your ideas from ?… I´ll be posting some reviews on those things too.

So this being a blog about illustration is also a blog about what inspires me to illustrate and so don´t expect a technical thing all the time.

I do a lot of hiking so you will be seeing some photos from my expeditions around my area always in search of lost beaches to swim on and so expect anything that has something to do with the art of illustrating. It´s not all about skills and technique but also about inspiration and so this is my idea behind this blog.

01

As long as you are reading this, you might care to know that I have a fully free fantasy comics up there waiting for you to download the 4 books I illustrated some years ago, so go get it. If you love crazy sci-fi / fantasy stuff you´ll probably enjoy my “ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS” 180 page comics saga.

Fantasy-comics-cover01

Other than that you can find plenty of illustrations I did over the years since I started back in 1992 and so don´t forget to take a look at my sci-fi / fantasy / childrens book portfolios too. Besides the main galleries there´s also a few book projects for you to browse like for examploe “A Comet´s Tale” so if you enjoy imaginary worlds just dive into my website at will.

And if you have a project for me, Hey, I´m a freelance illustrator !!
