HUMANIT´S END – MOVIE POSTER ART

Here´s an old pic I had around for ages and which I decided to finish because I´m currently filling my portfolio with movie poster illustrations as a base for an online illustration workshop I´m planning too.
This was related to one of my favorite modern low budget independent space operas, the movie HUMANITY´S END as I always had this idea for a sequel and so when I met Neil Johnson the director online it was the perfect excuse to send him my movie plug for another movie.
So this is my fake movie poster for a sequel that I wished already existed. 😉

HUMANITIES END 2-TITLES-1250X

HUMANITIES END 2-1250X

You can check my original movie review and although it´s in Portuguese you can use my online google translator to get a general idea about why I love this movie and characters.
Oh..and the soundtrack is amazing !

I rarely do “fan art” , almost never actually but I had this unfinished pic around for ages and recently when talking with the director Neil Johnson online I mentioned to him that I had this around and so I decided to polish it.
Also my ClipStudio Paint got a new update and it was a good way to test it.
Besides the only fan part here in this new pic are actually the Sienna and Hoagland characters, the hero and the floating robot. Everything else is part of my own imagination and universe as I love to insert my own landscapes to create almost like an alternative version of the original product.

I absolutely love to create scifi cover art and illustrate movie posters based on stuff that does not exist and so this one was my take on a possible sequel for the Sienna adventures if they would be done with my visual colorful style instead.

GENERATION MARS : BOOK SERIES – Martian landscape

Here´s one of the first Mars surface images I did for the upcoming Generation Mars book series. This first one in particular won´t be the one used in the book as the second version best suits the description of the whole place presented in the text.
The first one is actually one of my favorites anyway.

The one which was chosen by the author and was built based on his detailed input of where every item needed to be is the second version of this one below.

” SPACE PORT – ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES”

” SPACE PORT – ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES”

This was inspired by one of my favorite scifi movies “NATURAL CITY“. I love oriental cinema and this movie in particular has a spaceport romantic scene that inspires me a lot,  so the whole feel for my pic came from that bit.

T4-FINAL-Arrivals-1250x

You can take a look at my review for the movie here at my blog. Use google translator form Portuguese into English. 😉

https://universosesquecidos.wordpress.com/…/natural…/

I was not in a rush and I painted in several days at the end of the day to relaxed from payed commission work.
I never do sketches, color tests, or anything related to any sort of planning whatsover.
All my “sketches” are done inside my imagination before a pic starts. When I have the visual “sketched” in my mind, ( color mood included ),  I just start to paint the pic and then the aditional texture work if needed brings it to life at the end.

I could have spent easily about 10 or 20 more hours on this just zooming in every detail and refining it to a point this would look almost photo realistic. Its easy for me to do that, but I don´t have time for creating “completed” paintings no more because I have commissions to do for other type of projects; usually children book stuff away from this type of art that I love.
Since I left Photoshop for good and started to paint witg Clip Studio Paint I actually like the way the brushes can give a more traditional feel to a paint rigth away and so I left this image in a rough phase because I like the “painting” feel where we see all the bush strokes and all that.

This also ended up with some sort of John Harris space art feel which was totally not intentional but unavoidable since his space scenes were really a big part of my childhoood back in the late 70s.

Poster Artwork : Scifi Concept Art / 2001 A Space Odyssey / The Neverending Story inspired epic space scene.

This was my last Photoshop big painting before I moved into Clip Studio Paint. I love to create these epic space scenes and this one started also in Blender as I had created a space station model and I wanted to see how I could paint something based on that.
Then the need for this image came along and I thought it would be the perfect reason to try it out.
I love space art and in particularly vast epic scenery and backgrounds. I like a lot to build images based on little details, sometimes nothing more than silhouettes but I find them perfect to add scale to each of the imaginary universes I create.

HuionFactory-2060x

Despite the obvious 2001 Space Odyssey inspiration you can relate too at first glance in fact this concept art painting has more to do with The Neverending Story than you can imagine by reading this.
If you know about that 1984 classic fantasy movie, ( and book ) , you´ll remember the first image of the Ivory Tower. Well that concept art matte painting thing changed my life when I was 14 and that is the reason why I wanted to became an illustrator. To create epic worlds like that.

There´s always a little bit of The Neverending Story in all my artworks and in this case despite the 2001 Monolith as the central piece if you know about the Neverending Story movie you´ll remember the floating asteroids scene at the end with the Ivory still standing floating alone among the stars. Well it´s no coincidence I´ve mixed both the Monolith here ( I needed it for the logo ) and the whole rusty color silhouette space background with that epic slab floating on a piece of rock.

Also there´s a bit of Flash Gordon in it too with the retro-50s-scifi rockets in there which I love to paint all the time too.

The foreground was the most difficult thing on this piece. It took forever to find the right balance between the characters and the focus of the image which should be the space scene outside.
Overall I do like the end result , which is not that usual as I tend to dislike all my paintings once they are finished.

“ROCKET WORLD” – SCIENCE FICTION SKETCH ILLUSTRATION / CONCEPT ART 2

“ROCKET WORLD” – SCIENCE FICTION SKETCH ILLUSTRATION / CONCEPT ART 2

Just another painting ( color doodle (?)) I did today for fun and to relax a bit out of my current children book illustration work.
No story behind this at all. I just kept drawing and then added my favorite color pallete to it as I do love warm colors.
I also love old scifi movies from the golden age of sci-fi when everything had rockets in it so they tend to pop-up a lot in this type of pics I do just because.

“CRUSADER” : MATTE PAINTING Test & Color / Tonal varations

“CRUSADER” : MATTE PAINTING Test & Color / Tonal varations

Although most of my work is done purely in “traditional” illustration despite me using digital painting techniques to draw and render my fantasy/science-fiction/Children´s-Book artwork, one area that fascinates me is that of matte-paiting when it conserns the extension of landscapes that can also be generated with photo collage , sometimes photo-bashing at their base.

matte 01-cinematic-lucid

So this an experiment of mine in creating fantasy landscape using all sorts of image manipulation with a lot of “traditional painting” on top of everything to make all the elements come togheter in one single piece. Usually you see these types of images done for movies, either for concept art or for final renders you get to see on the screen.
Here´s some tonal and color variations that can be achieved digitaly after the original digital painting/illustration is rendered initialy.

matte 01-adjust
matte 01-bw1
matte 01-cinematic-distant
matte 01-bw3
matte 01-classic-dawn-light
matte 01-classic-mini-oven
matte 01-classic-nostalgic
matte 01-classic-pitsburgh
matte 01-classic-whisper
matte 01-classix-mini-oven2
matte 01-crusader-food
matte 01-crusader-theater
matte 01-disposable-olden
matte 01-lightleaken-boken
matte 01-lomo-blue-sepia
matte 01-lomo-lomo
matte 01-lomo-nashville
matte 01-lomo-sepia-glow
matte 01-lomo-sutro fx
matte 01-mono-noir
matte 01-retro-pale-ocre
matte 01-retro-purple
matte 01-retro-warm
matte 01-serenity-bloom
matte 01-serenity-degraded
matte 01-vintage-sepia1

I plan to create more images with this technique later when I get to find the time to do it in between my regular illustration commissions.

“THE MONUMENTS of MARS” : COMICS Color Sketches & Tests . Work in Progress

Besides wanting to do a comics adaptation of the novel “The Neverending Story” one of these days, another one of my dream projects is to put to paper a story that I have in my imagination since I started to follow the Face on Mars thing more than 30 years ago and which is a mix of all those fringe themes with the cosmological scope of an Olaf Stapledon I love called “The Last and First Men” written back in the 1930s which even was a major influence on Arthur Clarke for his Rendez-vous-with-Rama novels later on.
So I have my own take on a cosmological saga spanning millions of years and it all starts with a little nod to the Martian enigma. I´ve been creating some illustrations to train for that project which you can see on my main gallery here on this site ( the Mars ones ) , but a couple years ago I had some time to spare and I started to doodle what you will see next.
I wanted to keep it loose in style and so I just kept on sketching and painting without much thought put into it. So this is some sort of sketchbook artwork.
Enjoy, although the text is still in Portuguese here.

Pag 01-TEXT - 1250X

Pag 02-TEXTO - 1250X

Pag 03-TEXTO - 1250X

Pag 04 - TEXTO - 1250X

Pag 05 - TEXTO - 1250X

Pag 06 - TEXTO - 1250X

Pag 07 - TEXTO - 1250X

Pag 08 - TEXTO-1250X

I didn´t took it further due to lack of time but also because I noticed that I was starting to use an american comics visual language on the layouts and I don´t want to create a scifi comics story within that particular style. I want it to look like an old European BD (comics) from the golden age of French-Belgium BD of the late 1970s, something within a Luc Orient / Valerian / Bernard Prince / Druuna type of thing and stay as much further away possible from the american super-hero visual formula.
I plan to restart this sometime in the future as my scifi story is still developing inside my imagination and so when I have the time I will work on this for sure. Maybe I won´t just do a comics story but a mix between a novel an illustration book and comics.
Let´s see what the future brings.
