The Heade on the Hearth, a spaceship concept and illustration for Ren Garcia and his League of Elder universe.
I really liked to create this ship out of some rough shapes and a silhouette like you can see in the process above.
The drawing was ease to create and details were added layer by layer.
Update on the piece of “Stenstrom and the gang” for Ren Garcia. Since a while now I use advanced lighting techniques to model a specific plasticity on characters through digital painting. It is a very common practice, but working in Photoshop makes this a charm and it adds so much depth and value to a piece. It took the longest time to paint all the surfaces on the cloth and the specific ornamental parts, but that was also the most fun part.
Stenstrom and the gang: a new promotional piece done for author Ren Garcia. This one was different for me, started with just one character, then 2 others came in and a background was developed upon request with a “sould-devour”.
The first sketches for this were done on paper with pencil each character on a different sheet, then scanned and merged into one composite, the stroke in the background was just to show something for a simple background. that was before the idea with the forest background came up. Next post will show refinement and better coloring stages.
