Goodbye Photoshop, Hello Clip Studio Paint : “West of Oz – South of Fantasia” – Sixth Clip Studio painting.

And here it goes. Here´s the final illustration I´ve been working on the last few days just to relax between another book project I´m doing right now and which has nothing to do with this image now. 🙂
I need to paint this images of my own universes just for fun or I would spend all my life just illustrating other peoples dream visions, so I try to always have a little time to do my own personal work and create the universes that I like.
This is starting to become a series of paintings so here goes another: “West of Oz : South of Fantasia”. Inspired of course by The Wizard of Oz and by The Neverending Story.

cpt06b_FINAL_1250X

The only idea I had for this image before starting was that I wanted to show the signs point to OZ and Fantasia and that I wanted to do some sort of creature on a field. Other than that I´m as surprised as to what this image turned out to be as all of you are. Otherwise I would be bored to death just trying to paint an already planned illustration.

Here´s the complete making of with all the images now in one place as the other posts I did about the work in progress now are scattered about this blog in between other stuff and people always like to see how I do my paintings.

By the way it´s very important to mirror your painting while you´re doing it because it helps you notice things to fix and also as in this case you might find out that an oposite angle is after all the right one to tell the story you want to tell all along.

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.

“MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING DAYS” – Illustration / Concept Artwork – Making Of / Step-by-Step creative breakdown.

So as usual here´s a glimpse into the making of for my new terraforming Mars pic.
It´s the possible breakdown of my process although in reality things are not done as linear as I need to showcase here as when I´m drawing I´m doing details and things all over the place as I have a crazy almost random working flow when it comes to create my worlds. But nevertheless I think this can help you to find the logic behind the creation of my second (new) “MONUMENTS OF MARS : TERRAFORMING DAYS” pic.

I have another rececent Mars pic you might care to take a look.

ROV-mkg-19-FINAL1500X-VAR_D

Click here to see the step-by-step making of for that one too.

People keep asking where I get the idea for my pics. Well, I read a lot. Reading books makes you use your imagination and so I have a lot of practice in imaginining stuff. If you want to learn how to draw, read books, ( not picture books, but novels ) as that will make you imagine stuff a lot and so when it comes to drawing being able to visualize something in your mind is very important.
Also on inspiration, when it comes to Mars in particularly  I have my own interest on the subject for decades now and in particularly the Cydonia/Face on Mars controversy so I have a ton of inspiration material from that too. Also I´ve listened to the Art Bell talk radio show for ages when he still was on the air and so there´s no short of ideas from that too.

If you like Art Bell, there´s a great alternative to his show that you may not know about it. It´s called “THE UNEXPLAINED.TV” hosted by the British journalist Howard Hughes and it´s the next best thing to Bell you ever eard, as this guy is as good as he was when Art did his radio show. The unexplainded.tv site has already a ton of fascinating interviews on podcast that will fire your imagination too. I listen to that a lot when I´m painting; this pic was done listening to one of his old Mars shows.

“SPACEPORT” : Concept Illustration – Step by Step – from an old vintage photo to a spaceport on an jungle alien world.

DRAWING TUT-logo

“SPACEPORT” : Concept Illustration – Step by Step – from an old photo to a spaceport on an jungle alien world.

And here´s another step-by-step depiction of the creative process behind one of my images. This time I took a different approach and started this spaceport scene out of a common atmospheric photograph from England I found on the web.
I liked the mood and the light and so I just started to doodle and sketching on top of it.
I did so much sketching over it that it ended up becoming the final spaceport maybe deep into some kind of jungle planet you see in the final result.

“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.

Here´s another step by step painting tutorial for those of you who enjoy looking at the creative process. This is one of many ways of creating this sort of science fiction alien planet landscapes and scenery.
I begun this one trying out some random sketches in small thumbnails. As you may recognise the first one with the spiked landscape I later used for my “Retro Rocket” illustration too.
Enjoy.

I call this my Anti-Tutorial. For a simple reason. Usually we can find hundreds of digital illustration tutorials all over youtube for example but when I was starting on this trying to also learn by watching many of them, one of my major difficulties was sometimes to follow everything when everything on screen seemed to be so perfect and without flaw. So one day I decided to create my own tutorials showing how I could do a painting totally from scratch without any planning whatsoever to find myself in that situation where a drawing can look like it´s a failure and completely lost and so show people how I could get out of that situation and still save the final illustration.
So here it goes.

A ideia aqui não foi fazer um tutorial explicando passo por passo como se produz uma ilustração com todos os passos correctos logo de uma só vez, mas dar uma ideia precisa do tipo de erros que um principiante pode encontrar pela frente ao tentar criar por si próprio uma imagem assim. Durante anos eu tive imensa dificuldade em entrar nisto da ilustração digital pois normalmente ao tentar reproduzir os tutoriais que encontrava havia sempre uma parte onde encalhava por falta de experiência e depois os tutoriais nunca mostravam em detalhe como se podia sair desses buracos técnicos e criativos. Portanto a ideia com este agora é mostrar-lhes como se pode produzir uma boa ilustração final mesmo passando por todo o tipo de dificuldades e apesar do video não estar em tempo real penso que servirá para lhes mostrar o tipo de buracos onde muita gente encalha e através do meu exemplo aprendam como também vocês podem sempre salvar aquilo que parece um péssimo resultado inicial.
