Rocket Calendar illustration [3]

in illustration •  last year 


Long time no posts from me. I wish I could spend more time posting daily here but there are lot's of activities to do instead.

You know guys, right now I am working on something really interesting and beautiful for the future of Steem which I can not show and tell yet actually :) Hopefully it will become alive soon but for now here is the third illustration I've done for a calendar about the family business and love for the space travelling.

This story is about dreams, warm family relationships and still life with beautiful happy end.


Drafting a sketch was fast since it was the third illustration in a row and I was sure what my client expecting from me. The only thing was since I was drawing faces again and again in the first and second pieces here I've decided to try another point of view showing the main character from the back. It was a concern with the client, he wanted the front view and I could understand him. We had to show this is a same boy after ages passed.


Third piece is showing a grew up boy in his room before space flight. He become a spaceman as his father was dreaming. Second sketch was approved and colored in Adobe Photoshop on my Macbook Pro with the help of Wacom Intuos 3 tablet.


I found this photo in my working folders. You can see real work in progress here. Almost no shadows and details. Just simple silouettes using key colors and a photo of hands with the camera for reference. Shot was taken in 6 of November, 2013 in Odessa, Ukraine. We were living there together with my wife for few months.


I never shared this project in details before so again Steem motivates me to show it revealing the story. This is the power of blockchain!

Check out the beginning of that story and first illustration here in case you've missed it.
