Lucca Italy aliens

Hi, just got back from Lucca Italy where I have a Design Studio Press booth every year to sell our books. During the show again this year I did a bunch of quick Alien sketches....some shown here, enjoy.

Lucca environment sketch

This was a quick environment I painted up last Sunday, again at the show as a demo for passers-by. Threw the other aliens in at the end to spice it up a bit.

Alien Creation tip

Lucca Comics and Games aliens

Here are a couple of quick alien demo renderings I did while sitting in Lucca, Italy at our DSP booth over last weekend. Both the bird-bee thing and the alien head were painted over the same source, a piece of crumpled up paper, again shot inside Photo Booth using the "mirror filter." I will be further documenting this process inside one of our next DSP books, Alien Race.

Race scene in progress.

This piece is most likely not going to make it in time for the finished book.
Maybe it will find a way into the 2nd Edition.

More Alien Race WIP.

Alien Race book WIP

I'm starting to ramp up my effort on the completion of the book "Alien Race," due out at Comic Con next year. I finished off these four racers as part of a Photoshop article about my digital work. I'll post a link here to the article when I have it. The book will have a lot more to say about the design ideas behind these racers.
