“AS AVENTURAS DO PRÍNCIPE ZIPH” : POD Print on Demand HARDCOVER EDITION

These are some photos from the first test print edition I created several years ago with the original Portuguese version of my comics, “AS AVENTURAS DO PRÍNCIPE ZIPH – EM BUSCA DO LIVRO PERDIDO” ( “THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH – IN SEARCH OF THE LOST BOOK” ), then renamed “ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS” which I like best.
It´s a print on demand HARDCOVER edition and this book contains all the 4 volumes I later printed as separated editions for the English version.
So this original hardcover Portuguese edition contains the entire 190 pages of original comic art in one single hardcover book.

I used the services of lulu.com which for me is still the best company out there to print these types of books and I was really happy with the result as this book turned out great; excelent printing, perfect color reproduction, excelent hardcover,etc.
Below, the original cover I did for this PT hardcover POD printing.

MY ORIGINAL INSPIRATION SOURCE / A MINHA FONTE DE INSPIRAÇÃO ORIGINAL ( this bit only needs to be in Portuguese ) 😉

O trabalho que inspirou a minha história de aventuras Marcianas está no conteúdo deste meu outro site.
Publicado originalmente no Forúm DVD Mania (em 2004) , expandido e actualizado dez anos mais tarde ( e a precisar já de nova actualização ) este foi o material que acompanhou a minha imaginação/investigação e que pode ( e deve) ser lido como complemento da Banda Desenhada pois contextualiza muito do humor contido na história. O objectivo do site ( e do post no Forúm DVD Mania ) foi mesmo o de apresentar em Português com uma organização coerente muito sobre este tópico que só existe na sua maioria em inglês e também tentar separar as idiotices imbecis que já se escreveram sobre o tema ao logo dos anos daquilo que realmente tem mesmo interesse enigmático e científico sobre o mesmo e que não podia estar mais na ordem do dia apesar de não se notar absolutamente nada sobre isso em Portugal.
Portanto se quiserem perceber o verdadeiro contexto da minha banda-desenhada de Fantasia os links a consultar estão nas imagens abaixo. 😉

Drawing Tutorial : “OZ – Looking for Dorothy” – Making of

DRAWING TUT-logo

And this time here´s the step-by-step process from  my OZ pic.
It´s called “Looking for Dorothy”.
It´s more or less self-explanatory as a drawing tutorial so I hope everyone understands the several creative choices I went through from start to finish to create the image.
One of the things I love the most is to take known stuff and give it my own spin. The Wizard of Oz books and movie are part of my inspiration when it comes to my imaginary worlds and so I tend to go back to it just for fun or when someone commissions me “an Oz style” pic which happens more than often.
This was just another one.

Concept_Art_07_Wizard_of_OZ_site

You might notice there aren´t many characters in my landscapes and this is because what I really love is to create imaginary geographies and fantasy worlds.
Characters bore me to death and I only illustrate them mostly for scale or when I have to because I´m working on a childrens book.
When I was a kid I absolutely hated those illustrated children books that were set in imaginary worlds but then, the only thing the books had illustrated in them were the characters and what they were doing ( sometimes with a little bit of background behind them ). What I always wanted to see were the worlds where these characters lived in and soon I started to notice that illustrators mostly did character based images for these books rather than illustrating the imaginary worlds.
That has always been my inspiration.
As everyone always asks me for tutorials and tips on how to paint my type of imaginary stuff  you can find my tutorials on perspective if you click here ( go check them out / read the first one and then follow through my “perspective tutorial series ).
Then you´ll understand better what follows.
Here´s a breakdown for this “Wizard of Oz” pic.

 

To illustrate imaginary worlds as a freelancer children book illustrator or freelance artist available for work I based my portfolio on the worlds I can imagine rather than on the characters that can inhabit those places as from what I see out there most illustrators work on characters and not on environments, except in concept art.
So my idea was always think about illustration for a book the same way I have to think about creating concept art. I guess my children book illustrations like this OZ inspired one above show a bit of that concept art influence and that is something that I like to showcase.
