Mix: Very Old Doodles, Sketches, Scribbles, Tests and stuff 1…

OldWork-logo LOST IN SPACE art museum-logo

Very Old Doodles and Sketches and stuff 1…
Sketches I did back on my army days or earlier back in the late 80s early 90s perhaps…

I found an old folder with some small scans of a few images of mine done more than 25 years ago most of them. I was trying to find the old pics to do a better scan but I don´t have time right now. Nevertheless I wanted to showcase here this stuff as it´s a good depiction of not only my love for fantasy landscapes and for creating fantasy worlds either related to children book material or simply as concept art doodles and color tests.
Some of these images go way back before 1992 of course at the time I was with the army and many of these “epic” landscapes were sketched in small sheets of paper I had around at my HQ back then, some on the back of anything I could find.
Here it goes, sorry about the image sizes but it´s what I could find.

Of course a lot of these was way before digital; ( yes kids, no phones, apps, social media or wifi ); at the time the most advanced computer had been the Sinclair ZX SPECTRUM a few years back and so when I created most of these images I never even could dream that one day I would be sharing them with the world in a sci-fi thing called THE INTERNET.
So here they go. I have a lot more in my physical paper archives but I need to find and scan them. Maybe one of these days I´l start remaking some of these landscapes just for fun.

MY ORIGINAL INSPIRATION SOURCE / A MINHA FONTE DE INSPIRAÇÃO ORIGINAL

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. 😉

“ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS : THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH” – VOLUME FOUR; FANTASY / SCI-FI COMICS ; ( 2009 Version : Traditional Watercolors / Acrylics / Color Pencils ).

OldWork-logo

You can learn more details about this old comics project of mine if you click on this link ( you can also download a free pdf for this THIRD book ).
Now the idea here is to post my story , page by page as many people like to scroll up and down to read this things as it is now and not everyone downloads pdfs at random just to check stuff up. Click here to read PART ONE , click here to read PART TWO and click here to read PART THREE.

“ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS : THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ZIPH”VOLUME FOUR; FANTASY / SCI-FI COMICS ; ( 2009 Version : Traditional Watercolors / Acrylics / Color Pencils ).

This “ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS” was one of my last personal projects created entirely in traditional medium; it took me 5 years to complete this ( between my other professional graphic design work for a software house ) and it was created , drawn and painted with real color pencils, acrylics and watercolors.
This 2009 version created between 2004 and 2009 was actually a “new” version for this idea which I had in my imagination since I was 17 back in 1987 when I did the first version.

Capa4_FRENTE

When the internet came along , I discovered, “Coast to Coast AM”; “Art Bell” ; “Richard Hoagland” ; “George Noory” ; “Graham Hancock” and all you can imagine if you know what I´m talking about and all that stuff started to morph into a new version of my old fantasy “The Hobbit style” adventure. My old Thorondor world became part of an ancient Mars and so this new ONCE UPON A TIME ON MARS was born.
I created this just for fun, to experiment, to learn and to also use some of the images in my portfolio and it worked because it got me many commissions at the time when I was going fulltime treelance with this illustration thing.

I plan to remake this and correct all the narrative / pacing issues one of these days in full digital , but for now here´s “the original”. Enjoy ; ( English version revised by Will Kallif from StormTheCastle.com (Thanks Will) ).
This entire work was done without any planning whatsoever. I had no idea what was going to happen in the next page as I never plan any of my stories and so this is a good example of what usually comes out… good and bad. 😉

This is PART FOUR of my story that for now concludes the first adventure.

“THE NEVERENDING STORY : SKETCHBOOK” : ORIGINAL NOVEL COMICS ADAPTATION – Doodles & Initial Sketches

OldWork-logo

“THE NEVERENDING STORY : SKETCHBOOK”

Among my dream projects is to do a “comics” (European style “Banda-Desenhada/Bande-Desinée)  adaptation out of my all time favorite Fantasy novel ever; “THE NEVERENDING STORY / A HISTÓRIA INTERMINÁVEL” by Michael Ende.
The 1984 movie adaptation that covers roughly the first half of the novel is to blame for me wanting to become an illustrator. I had to find a way to also create incredible fantasy imaginary worlds like the one I saw that afternoon ( at 14 years old back in 1984 ) in a dark movie theater looking at the first image for the Ivory Tower landscape that appears on that Wolfgang Petersen movie.

ivory.gif

Since then I read the novel dozens of times and I was utter disapointed when the second movie came out because it was a terrible adaptation of the second half of the novel. In fact “THE NEVERENDING STORY” must be one of the most destroyed books by Hollywood ever ! Because there as a “third movie”… agh !
Because I love the book so much I´ve been trying to create a comics version out of it since I was 14 actually ( I´ll post that early attempt soon in my “museum” section here ) and so every now and then I start to sketch some versions of what I could use as a graphic style in my “comics” adaptation one of these days.
These are some of the last sketches I did a few years ago.

Some of the characters here you didn´t saw them in the movies because they only exist in the book and my idea is to faithfully adapt the novel even if I get inspired by some design ideas from the original german movie.
I have some other images I´ll post later when I can find them.

 

 

“EDEN WORLD/TREE WORLD” – Work in progress/Work on halt. :)

OldWork-logo

This is from a personal project that I have in my imagination for years but I don´t have time to work on it and so it´s still kept in the drawer. This is so old that it´s even from when I was still doing illustration in traditional ways; real watercolor, inks, pencils, ballpen, etc.

Treeworld

Nevertheless this is a story I have in my mind which was actually inspired by some books of one of my favorite sci-fi classic authors; Clifford D.Simak and until I figure out a way of not making it too similar this project is on hold as I was doing it just for fun anyway. In the meantime I took some images out of it and I even created a Poster for a print company some years ago which made my “Eden World” become “TreeWorld” for a while.

“RUSTING WORLD” : Early concept sketches for an old Video Game project.

OldWork-logo

About 25 years ago, when computers had 256 color screens and were just leaving the age of the old green screen MS-DOS style monitors; I worked for a company that developed not only the first Portuguese PC Video Game wich was produced professionally in Portugal but also one of the first video games to use more than 65.000 colors; which at the time even got us the attention of Virgin Games and Psygnosis. There is a long story to tell about this so I will do it in another post as there is a lot to show about the old PT video game “GAMBYS“.
This post now concerns one of the video games that we were planning to do next and so these are some of the first illustrations I did to conceptualize the world. “Tomb Raider” was just coming out and suddenly there was a 3D way to create video game worlds which we were planning to maybe explore. So what you see next are some of my early ballpen sketches I just doodle loosely for about a month or so trying to come out with some Rusting World concept that we could transform into scenery later.

Unfortunely at the time with no Internet to speak of and no way of marketing a product like this properly, the game company I worked for decided to abandon game production and go into hospitality software which was cheaper and faster to create and commercially was a lot more profitable locally at the time. (Windows 95 hadn´t even come out when we completed “GAMBYS” the video game which was still in MS-DOS); so what remains of the Rusting World concept I did for when we were thinking of continue to develop games are these sketches you see above.

OldWork-logo

Back in 1996 after we completed the work on what became the first PC Video Game professionally produced in Portugal “GAMBYS“; the company decided to start another project. These are some of the initial ballpen detailed doodles I did for an initial concept back then. I ended up not using any of this because we soon realize I was illustrating more for something that we didn´t had technology back then when the fastest computer was a pentium at 133mhz for example.
These environments are more suited for a MMROPG nowadays than for what we could do 25 years ago with technology available back then out of an independent low budget company.
This was my idea for a steampunk old rusting world at the time and I was just sketching stuff to see what could come out of this initial processs.


So this project was put on halt and the company became an Hospitality Software House of great success here in Portugal for several years ( still on today ) and for which I design hospitality software for about 10 years in between other illustration work, because I didn´t intended to be designing boring and burocratic hospitality software forever.

Anyway these are some of the ballpen spontaneous sketches I did back then out of a couple more dozes I have somewhere awaiting to be scanned or something…

NEW SITE / BLOG : ICREATEWORLDS.NET

Well, my new site is up. And this time I´m in wordpress. After testing several platforms I came to the conclusion this one was the best for me for the way it allows me the perfect integration between a regular portfolio site for my artwork and all the power a wordpress blog has.

So this will now be my home. My idea is to use the site as my porfolio to showcase some of my artwork around but also to play with the blog and not only post some tutorials when I get the time to create them, but also talk about all the stuff that inspires me.
I get a lot of questions from people wanting to learn how to get into this illustration thing; how to carve your own niche and all that and so I´ll try to post some articles based on my experience. It´s just my point of view, but one thing that I found over the years illustrating professionally as a freelancer is that the world is really big and so the good news is there is room for everyone.
The bad news… the world is really big. 🙂

Also on this blog, you´ll find articles about stuff that inspires me to create my artwork. I get a ton of inspiration from books, music and of course movies along with talk radio and audio books and so to answer the old question : where do you get your ideas from ?… I´ll be posting some reviews on those things too.

So this being a blog about illustration is also a blog about what inspires me to illustrate and so don´t expect a technical thing all the time.

I do a lot of hiking so you will be seeing some photos from my expeditions around my area always in search of lost beaches to swim on and so expect anything that has something to do with the art of illustrating. It´s not all about skills and technique but also about inspiration and so this is my idea behind this blog.
