First post for 2017! Let there be many more like this one!
And now… the process!
- I wanted to expand the concept from my previous piece: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/BOKr6 So i started off with that sketch and expanded it.
- Here I needed to see a color mockup. Easily done by working with adjustment layers.
3. I knew i wanted to have more detail. The idea of this character was to be a Shakespearean self questioning robot, made up from various mechanical pieces and organic matter. To represent the essence of flesh and machine brought together rather forcefully.
4.The character was supposed to hold a human skull in his hand. But the painting was not very clear. So i went in Blender and made a 3d model that I later integrated in the final painting.
Daily sketch no2.
Keep them coming, ice cream man.
What if we sent androids on the Moon to build a colony? They don’t die, they are autonomous, they can be controlled from far away and they don’t vote!
Meet Jonie, the space marine. He’s green.
A speedpainting I did using a rough 3d base. Spaceships, space station and typical sci fi stuff.
And here is a process log. I did a few color variations before settling on the greensih one. All in all around it took me under 3 hours, i think.
What do you do on a perfect autumn Saturday? You paint cyborgs and skulls, because that’s what you like to do! This one took me around 3 hours, but the easiest and quickest part was putting color and lights on it. I included the process images for a comparison of my workflow.
I made this painting thinking how much technology is part of our lives. This is a darker side of my introspection. Human race has evolved from nothing to being it’s own god. We’ve understood the laws of nature and we managed to develop technology and use it as a means to ease life, but also to control and destroy life. In the end, if we are not careful, we might end up consumed by this very same technology. Thus, the Dawn of Gods.
And now…el processo!
Sketch for fun, sci fi squid concept art. I might continue this in the future.
This is what happens when you combine the relentlessness of the Mongols with the resilience of a rhinoceros and you pour some Dalai Lama wisdom on top! Yeah, I was a big fan of the Marco Polo series and I think one of the best characters in that show was Kublai Khan. This piece started a little different but after I had picked up the show I turned it into what you see now.
