Hella Cool Colors - The good PromoArt! (Vol.2) (BattleBlox Illustrations)

in art •  2 years ago 

Hi Everybody !

Some time ago I posted the first and biggest promo-art made for Solstar's BattleBlox (Let's consider that one the Vol.1). Now is time for even more!

(All the images are my own creation and so I own the rights of them)

I've been really busy lately, and I am about to show you why!


I've been developing some PromoArt for this project and I wanted to start sharing it with you guys, I will be posting one every few days, due that I have a lot of these! One artwork better than the another!

They mean sooooo much fun to me. The themes are amazing and the style is just great. Besides that, the game promises to be AWESOME!

This game is already looking great and will start working in not a lot of time from now! When it starts rolling, make sure you show your support on kickstarter!!

I'll be posting links to it as soon as they are created, So check the lastests posts about this! =)

Now let's see a little bit of step by steps!


At the beginning I made a simple rough sketch with black lines to show the client the idea I got in my mind based on his description (a viking on a medieval-fantasy world).

I also added some colors to put some mud on the illustration.

This is something very important because this is what speaks for you and what calls at most the attention: the mood of the image.

Based on this then we can talk about the different meaning of colors:


Let's just say that different colors represent different things. And in this case the green that we are using plays a major role. Check this out:

For this illustration I needed to play with the meaning of the dead skeletons brought to life. So I knew that green would give that meaning to the painting.

But I needed to be very specific with the type of green that I was using, because for placing the wanted meaning it was a must to place the right green: the poisonous one

The 1st one is too relaxing and the 3rd one is way too warm and charming. But if it s about the Neon Green (the one in the middle), that's just perfect. You can even see how poisonous, toxic or even radioactive it is.

Then for the rest of the scene (without counting our square-shape viking) I applied a subtle transition from these radioactive greens to the gray-blue mountains right in the background.


This is actually a really good element to play with since the subtle background transition pops the character out much more. Which was made with red assets and details on purpose: Red and green are complementary and reject each other just as black and white does ;).

You can even note this effect in the breakdown at the right.

But if we are talking about composition... Well, that s another story! I would say that I have a lot of tips give you here. But it s all thanks to the choice of going super simple.

When it's about composition, you can manage to take the different elements of the artwork and work on their shape in such a way that you can guide the viewer's eye to the focal point (which you should have!).


Every element here is helping to guide the eye to the Main character's head. Who is a prominent figure.

Actually this heroic pose didn't come by itself. The perspective is placed in such a way that our hero is seen from bellow, so its presence and figure will feel omnipotent

Can you see how many elements are helping to guide the eye? Even the ribs of the skeleton are helping to guide the eye to our viking!

This is something really fun and really awesome to do. The more you practice it, the better you become! Easy peasy!


If you didn't notice it, this was a post with more quality than the previous ones just to check how much difference in the support it gets. Just to check the real difference between posts with a lot of quality content or not much.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next illustrations and release of the BattleBlox!!
