Very Old Doodles and Sketches and stuff 1…
Sketches I did back on my army days or earlier back in the late 80s early 90s perhaps…

I found an old folder with some small scans of a few images of mine done more than 25 years ago most of them. I was trying to find the old pics to do a better scan but I don´t have time right now. Nevertheless I wanted to showcase here this stuff as it´s a good depiction of not only my love for fantasy landscapes and for creating fantasy worlds either related to children book material or simply as concept art doodles and color tests.
Some of these images go way back before 1992 of course at the time I was with the army and many of these “epic” landscapes were sketched in small sheets of paper I had around at my HQ back then, some on the back of anything I could find.
Here it goes, sorry about the image sizes but it´s what I could find.

Of course a lot of these was way before digital; ( yes kids, no phones, apps, social media or wifi ); at the time the most advanced computer had been the Sinclair ZX SPECTRUM a few years back and so when I created most of these images I never even could dream that one day I would be sharing them with the world in a sci-fi thing called THE INTERNET.
So here they go. I have a lot more in my physical paper archives but I need to find and scan them. Maybe one of these days I´l start remaking some of these landscapes just for fun.

MUSEUM : Drawings from when I was a kid – “BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS COMICS” ( 1983 – 13 years old )

MUSEUM : Drawings from when I was a kid – “BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS COMICS” ( 1983 – 13 years old )

Continuing to scare potential clients away, here´s a glimpse at some of my early doodlings from when I was a kid. This time, here´s the only pages I (and a friend of mine) got to do when trying to create a comics adaptation of the movie “BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS” , a Roger Corman Star Wars knock off which was released back in 1980 and which at the time was of major influence in my imagination.
So one summer when I was around 12/13 years old, me and my friend started to create this comics adaptation of the movie; and remember … all this from memory as this was made back in 1983 when something like the Internet wasn´t even dreamed in science fiction. No reference material, nothing, just what we remembered from seeing at the movie theater when we went to see the movie, maybe days, weeks or months before.
And so the result was this. Too bad we didn´t got to complete the entire movie “adaptation”…It would be fun to see the whole thing now.

Even back then because I already hated to draw characters and had no interest in creating human figures, my friend took the job of illustrating the characters and I got to do what I always loved, create the scenery, space scenes and backgrounds.

All these back in the days when we really had to use our imagination as there was nothing around for us to pick from and I only got to see the movie again recently when I got the bluray.
