“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.

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.

Thubnail Sketches

One of the things I love to do are these thumbnail sketches. It´s my favorite part of each illustration process even if I end up not using most of what I do, it creates a nice archive of stuff to reference later.
So here´s a couple of simple examples of how I can start an illustration. In this stage this is where you can define not only the essential shapes of your pic but also very important the dark/light values you might want to establish from the start. After this is just a question of how much details you want to paint later.

thumb samples

These thumbnails below were the base for the saturn space scene from my “FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL” pic you can find here: https://icreateworlds.net/2017/12/15/first-day-of-school/

DRAWING TUT-logo

ANCIENT ALIENS ON THE MOON
Here goes another step-by-step making of for everyone that enjoys to learn how these illustrations are made. There is a ton of different illustration techniques to achieve the same result but this is how I did this pic. I´m not entirely happy with the image and I plan to maybe work more on it or do another version in the future to give it more depth but nevertheless this is a good example of how anyone can draw a pic like this from scratch so I hope my creative process here can inspire you to also create your own images.
