transhumantrickster said: What do you think of Wayne Barlowe's work? I mean, some of his stuff can get pretty out there.

bogleech:

Barlowe’s Guide to Extraterrestrials was one of my favorite books as a kid. Never before had I seen fictional creatures described in such scientific detail, though I wasn’t familiar with any of their origins at the time. I didn’t even pay attention to the fact that they came from different books at all at first, but I read and re-read entries over and over, then tried to write and illustrate my own.

Later I was given a copy of Expedition, and it was the first book I ever had devoted strictly to exploring the biodiversity of an alien planet. A lot of the species presented kind of blend together after a while, a whole lot of wrinkly dinosaur chickens with skull heads, but it’s an amazing book and when the aliens get weird, they are memorably weird. My favorites are the forest gulper - a giant, gaping, bioluminescent stomach - and the mummy nest flier - a creature that lets 90% of its body desiccate and freeze during winter to serve as a shelter for its tiny, winged head.

I feel like over time, though, Barlowe’s designs have gotten a little too homogenous; I’m totally, totally bored by the Pacific Rim kaiju.

I found out only a month or so ago that he designed the entire “Power Lords” toy line back in the 80’s, and now I realize my favorite designs of his were some of his earliest and silliest.

Somebody sent an ask about how I made my avatar,  so here’s a quick tutorial!:

So first I open up Manga Studio, my favourite drawing and inking program, and I doodle out what I want with the pencil tool on a rough layer:

image

The next stage, I make another rough layer in a contrasting colour and do more pencils, refining the shape and making small changes. In this case, I made the image a little less typically fighting gamey to reflect me better, adding in the funny teacup detail and slimming the shoulders to look closer to my small build. I also made the pose a little less contorted and Jojo.

image

So the second pencil pass looks like this. My pencils are often pretty rough. I trust in my ability to make things up a bit as I go along.

image

All right, time to ink! I make a new non-rough layer (or select the one that’s there by default) and select manga studio’s pen tool. I have my own pen presets; this one is my favourite. I basically have tweaked every pen tool I use to have VERY high amounts of size variation based on pen pressure. This is what gives my inking such a distinctive look!

image

image

Now I just carefully ink my lines. Manga Studio has great line smoothing (Correction), which helps take out tablet wobbles and make the lines look really nice and smooth like they would on paper.

image

You can see that at inking, I’ll often improvise, add detail, correct things etc.

image

Time to colour next. Export your inks as a psd from Manga Studio and open them up in Photoshop. Set your inks up as the top layer, and under that make a flat colour background layer to make it easier to see things, and then a layer for your colours underneath the ink layer. Set your paint bucket to “all layers” and turn on anti-aliasing, and drop in the flat colours for different parts, then neaten it up with the paint brush. Then when everything is filled, paint in the shadows.

image

If I’m lazy and/or have a lot to do, I’ll make the shadows a new layer on multiply mode and just paint them all in one colour, but I wanted REALLY nice colours for this, so I painted them all on the colour layer with carefully chosen colours. The key here is RAMPING. Colours don’t just go darker, but rather they move toward purple or magenta. This gives the image a lively, vibrant look. I’ll probably do a full tutorial on just ramping at some point, colour is a really in-depth subject on its own!

image

So then, I just stick my completed image, with the inks and colour layers flattened together, onto a background that goes nicely (yellow to match my friendly personality and contrast the purple hues!) and it’s done! :D

here’s the site this came from so that people can see and examine the details for themselves. contains links to documents and related treaties. there seems to be a LOT of information here.
also might be worth looking at this map alongside it?

Updated my brushpack!

DOWNLOAD HERE— LINK

I also keep a link for this download on my Tumblr page in my description.

These brushes work best at the size they are or bigger as many use textures. (I usually work on a 4000x4000 canvas.)

A couple of these are collected, some I modified from existing brushes and a few are created from scratch, hope you find use in them.

Enjoy!!
