” SPACE PORT – ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES”

” SPACE PORT – ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES”

This was inspired by one of my favorite scifi movies “NATURAL CITY“. I love oriental cinema and this movie in particular has a spaceport romantic scene that inspires me a lot,  so the whole feel for my pic came from that bit.

You can take a look at my review for the movie here at my blog. Use google translator form Portuguese into English. 😉

I was not in a rush and I painted in several days at the end of the day to relaxed from payed commission work.
I never do sketches, color tests, or anything related to any sort of planning whatsover.
All my “sketches” are done inside my imagination before a pic starts. When I have the visual “sketched” in my mind, ( color mood included ),  I just start to paint the pic and then the aditional texture work if needed brings it to life at the end.

I could have spent easily about 10 or 20 more hours on this just zooming in every detail and refining it to a point this would look almost photo realistic. Its easy for me to do that, but I don´t have time for creating “completed” paintings no more because I have commissions to do for other type of projects; usually children book stuff away from this type of art that I love.
Since I left Photoshop for good and started to paint witg Clip Studio Paint I actually like the way the brushes can give a more traditional feel to a paint rigth away and so I left this image in a rough phase because I like the “painting” feel where we see all the bush strokes and all that.

This also ended up with some sort of John Harris space art feel which was totally not intentional but unavoidable since his space scenes were really a big part of my childhoood back in the late 70s.

“GAMBYS” – The Children Book : Work in Progress

“GAMBYS” – The Children Book : Work in Progress

For years I´ve thinking of creating a childrens book based on the original characters I did for the original “GAMBYS” game; which 25 years ago was the first professional produced video game for PCs ever conceived in Portugal.
Because it was a game oriented  for ecology it always had the potencial for its characters to be the protagonists of stories of their own and so a childrens book was always been in the back of my mind.
So what you see here are my initial tests for my personal children book project based on my Gambys characters. I´m not sure yet how this will develop so let´s see where this will take me.

For now these are just a test to see if I can modernize my old style. I have this first book alreadt structured and so I will be working on this in between commissions for the next months to come I´m sure.
