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.

OLD CONCEPT ART : BALLPEN & PAPER ROUGH DETAILED DOODLES (1996/97)

OldWork-logo

Back in 1996 after we completed the work on what became the first PC Video Game professionally produced in Portugal “GAMBYS“; the company decided to start another project. These are some of the initial ballpen detailed doodles I did for an initial concept back then. I ended up not using any of this because we soon realize I was illustrating more for something that we didn´t had technology back then when the fastest computer was a pentium at 133mhz for example.
These environments are more suited for a MMROPG nowadays than for what we could do 25 years ago with technology available back then out of an independent low budget company.
This was my idea for a steampunk old rusting world at the time and I was just sketching stuff to see what could come out of this initial processs.


So this project was put on halt and the company became an Hospitality Software House of great success here in Portugal for several years ( still on today ) and for which I design hospitality software for about 10 years in between other illustration work, because I didn´t intended to be designing boring and burocratic hospitality software forever.

Anyway these are some of the ballpen spontaneous sketches I did back then out of a couple more dozes I have somewhere awaiting to be scanned or something…
