The finished artwork + its complete descriptive process + details. Second part.
This is cosmic art I do for X:Ploration, a Techno-Electro collective in Berlin. And this one is the latest commissioned by the organiser, @ax10m. Digital versions of it will be used to print promotional material like posters and flyers for their next event, taking place in November 2018 in Suicide Circus Club.
Here's a link towards the Facebook Event.
If you've missed the first part of the process, here it is: Part I
We'll obviously continue from where we were, just after having taken the masking fluid off...
Next step is the planets.
A close up over wet planets, kinda weird.
After a big distress, they seem now to look a bit like ... planetoids at least.
Once everything is dry, let's attack the ships. Starting with the top ones so I can do things down there while waiting the paint to dry.
The top sealing.
And the lower level, that is more into the light.
A light cast shadow over the main ship.
And over the lower structures and ships. Pro tip: Cast shadows like that don't absolutely need to be realistic but they do play a great role in giving depth in the compositition.
Last step, cutting the sheet off the board.
... voilà! Here's the definitive artwork. Ready to embark.
After that, I scan the work and send the digital file to my client.
Here are some crops used for the event's banners.
