Acrilics on Paper size A3 Original sketch by Davide Fabbri Art director Paolo Parente Coloring by ME i think it was for a Cyberpunk cover but it's quite old and my memory's not that good ... i was working toooo much at that time
Fantastic colours, you really added an atmosphere to the piece. Did you work with the original pencils or an inked version? If you feel like sharing the secrets of your brilliance then be sure to let me know!
Wow, this is the cover art of Firestorm: Stormfront, a CP2020 supplement, the one with the best art, along with Firestorm: Shockwave. They both look like they were done by the same artist. Did you do another pic like this?
Yeah, number #1 was for Stormfront and #2 was from Shockwave. Published around 1997/1998 IIRC. Shame the company turned to such crappy 'art' (posed barbie dolls) after this. If only they had stayed with you...
holy crap, that's amazing. What kind of paper and what size we talking here? Looks quite amazing. Excellent grasp of perspective and viewpoint to optimize the feel of the forefront figure and background structure and machines. Very nice with the water as well, this is awesome.
You've got a lot of great work under your belt, Alessia. I'm liking the aquatic vehicles in back, and the color contrast between backgrounds.
If I were you though, since you're so handy w/ photo manipulation, I do some quick retouching to this image. The foreground reds and pinks look a bit faded. You could do a quick mask and play w/ color adjustment, balance, saturation, brightness, etc... Really, all the hard work is done already.
Possible that some of the colors lost their punch over time. That's the problem w/ analog media. But I think your experience in that realm has definitely helped make you such a formidable digital artist!
If i open it with PS at all i'll finish with totally redoing it.., 1, it's old and faded allright , 2 , i can zoom and correct a lot of imperfection, 3 being old i'd do it differently now....etc so i decided that i'll leave the Traditional as traditional as possible or i'll go mad with adjustings ... and i'm sure you can undertend what i mean
this is different allright! becouse it's traditional, not digital painting and it's quite old too as for your lineart they really are cool stuff but sadly i don't have time to do that ...i think i'm working too much thanks anyway for the proposal
I understand and thanks for the compliment Maybe in the future we can collaborate. the reason I want to do so with some one is that I want to see my work develop to directions other than what I wanted so that I can possibly see new potentials. And it is very hard for myself to do so for obvious reason.
