These are a few test pics for something I will probably be illustrating in the near future.
I do a few of these everytime I get a new text to illustrate just to see if my illustration style can work. Sometimes a great text does not work visually and I like to make sure I can do justice to what the authors writte and so instead of rough sketches I tend to do these illustrations just to get confortable with a project before I begin officially on it.
This is another old one from about 15 years ago still created in real watercolors, color pencils and ink long before I started to paint in digital.
Inspired by one of my all time favorite sci-fi novels “PROJECT POPE” by Clifford D.Simack, this particular image is part of a larger set of pages I started to create for a comics story at the time but which I didn´t got to finish because in those days I was mostly working in software design and so illustration was like a second thing for me most of the time.
Nevertheless this is still a concept that I plan to do something with one of these days and perhaps remake this one or so. I´ll post the rest of the comics pages I have somewhere around here when I can find them and get time to scan the things.
These are a few of the original sketches I did some years ago to create this character done for a marketing campaign at the time. I plan to create some T-Shirts with this sometime in the future as I still hold the copyright to some of these in particular.
