Megalopolis - High Zone : Step by Step Progress by MaxD-Art
Megalopolis - High Zone : Step by Step Progress
Following the artwork, is this step by step to illustrate the process behind -Megalopolis High Zone-, a personal study (2015) .
You 'll see the process is rather conventional, as the composition from skectch to final doesn't evolve that much, just got refined through additional elements and lighting. Good to note that this is not always the case, as sometimes the idea shifts so much during the progress that it's hard to recognize in the end.

Personal study (2014) - Photoshop
About 20 hours of work.
Original size 3800 pixels heigh.
Cursed Statue Step by Step Process by MaxD-Art
Cursed Statue Step by Step Process
A step by step process for the artwork 'Cursed Statue'.
Done for Applibot - Legend of the Kryptids - 2013

In this illustration -which is a mix of characters and environment- the composition is important therefore I tried to lock it roughly from the early stages.
Then the design and lighting were refined progressively.
Abomination : DogSled - Step by Step Process by MaxD-Art
Abomination : DogSled - Step by Step Process
A step by step showing the process behing the cover illustration of Abomination, the illustrated book.
The process is no surprise : sketching (on photoshop or paper) to find a right stance or attitude for the characters and be accurate to the story, then rendering trying to bring the emotion of the writing, though color, light and atmosphere.

Finally back to the journal for a little  news about a project going to be released soon !

During the past two years (yet starting in 2011), I've been working on illustrating a story by the renown and talented scriptwriter Bragi Schut. 

If you have the chance to attend to San Diego's ComicCon at the end of the week (JULY 24-27), drop by and say Hi to Bragi, he'll be exhibiting the book in the small press area, F10.

Anyone interested in more details, please check out the following link of the amazon pre-order page :…

For the art side precisely, soon, I'll be able to show some visuals, work in progress and development sketches that led to the finished book.

Artwork that illustrates the book have been produced from 2011 to 2013 using Photoshop.
