“THE PASSES THROUGH WALLS”

Posted by Poly Bernatene





As work

Posted by Poly Bernatene
How to work! I chose a picture of the book “through walls” to display it.
First, usually very quickly I approach the tone of the book, to see how comprehensively will be allocated space for text, composition, the weights of the illustrations, where bullets are all sorts of directions and do more dynamic reading of the text both how the image. Also at this stage nothing is final, is like a memory aid for the images I have in my head that are going to go after adjusting as I go.
The next step is to pull a sketch (or mess) of the image, which is not always definite, as seen here suggested the mirror is facing the right side of buildings in thumbnail.

In this case I needed to document myself, here are some images I found to the final composition.

Step into the pen clean end, finally opted for the mirror lying to the left along with all the artwork.
From here I do everything on the computer, with Photoshop! Scanning and apply the pencil (on multiply layer) on a previously textured handmade.

I base color with some lights that will serve for the final palette.

This planted a shadow level (layer in multiply).

Once planted the light and shadow to paint step above all this base color with photoshop brushes created by me, pastels or pencils type according to need, like the traditional way to give the volumes and final details.

Concept art

Concept art

(Not to be confused with conceptual art.) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Concept art is a form of illustration where the main goal is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in films, video games, animation, or comic books before it is put into the final product. Concept art is also referred to as visual development and/or concept design. This term can also be applied to retail design, set design, fashion design and architectural design.

History

Who popularized or even invented the term Concept art in reference to preproduction design is ambiguous at best, but it may have come about as part of automotive design for concept cars or as part of the animation industry. Certainly, both industries had need for people who did this job even if the term had not come into use. References to the term Concept Art can be found being used by Disney Animation as early as the 1930’s.

Concept artists A concept artist is an individual who generates a visual design for an item, character, or area that does not yet exist. This includes, but is not limited to, film production, animation production and more recently video game production. A concept artist may be required for nothing more than preliminary artwork, or may be required to be part of a creative team until a project reaches fruition. While it is necessary to have the skills of a fine artist, a concept artist must also be able to work to strict deadlines in the capacity of a graphic designer. Some concept artists may start as fine artists, industrial designers, animators, or even special effects artists. Interpretation of ideas and how they are realized is where the concept artist’s individual creativity is most evident, as subject matter is often beyond their control.

Materials

In recent years concept art has embraced the use of digital technology. Software, such as Photoshop and Corel Painter, has become more easily available, as well as hardware such as Graphics tablets, enabling more efficient working methods. Prior to this (and still to this day), any number of traditional mediums such as oil paints, acrylic paints, markers, pencils, etc. were used. Owing to this, many modern paint packages are programmed to simulate the blending of color in the same way paint would blend on a canvas; proficiency with traditional media is often paramount to a concept artist’s ability to use painting software.

Themes

The two most widely covered themes in concept art are science fiction and fantasy. Concept art has always had to cover many subjects, being the primary medium in film poster design since the early days of Hollywood, however, since the recent rise of concept art used in video game production concept art has expanded to cover genres from football to the Mafia and beyond.[citation needed]

Styles

Concept art ranges from photorealistic to traditional painting techniques. This is facilitated by the use of special software by which an artist is able to fill in even small details pixel by pixel, or utilise the natural paint settings to imitate real paint. When commissioning work, a company will often require a large amount of preliminary work to be produced. Artists working on a project often produce a large turnover in the early stages to provide a broad range of interpretations, most of this being in the form of sketches, speed paints, and 3d overpaints. Later pieces of concept art, like matte paintings, are produced as realistically as required.

 

Z-Talks: A Brief View on Concept Art

Reported by Alejandra Molano

Hi everyone!

So this is the first to a new series of posts we are going to have about Z-talks.

 

For those who are not yet familiar with Z-talks: it is an initiative we started in the Creative Department for each member of the team to share a little knowledge with the rest, in just half an hour. The whole idea has been a total success so far, and we’ve had presentations with the most interesting topics ranging from Animation, Illustration, and Typography, to Serendipity. It was an initiative that only included the Creative Department, but now we want to share it with you!

Today’s Z-talk was presented by Wilson Carreño, and his topic was  “A Brief View on Concept Art”.

What is Concept Art?
“It is a form of illustration where the main goal is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in films, video games, animation, or comic books before it is put into the final product.” –  Wikipedia

Concept art is one of the most important tools in entertainment industries, as it helps to generate and define the look and feel for a production involving visuals such as films, animations, video games, and comics. It is the previous process to the whole development, and it sets a reference. Through concept art producers and developers make sure the final result will be cohesive and coherent.

There are lots of very well known concept artists, who include:
Moebius (Jean Giraud), who worked in important productions such as  Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element, and Starwatcher.

Also important, H.R GigerAlan LeeJohn Howe, and Daren R. Dochterman.

Disney is also an important reference in Concept Art, being also where the term was first coined as early as the 1930’s. Lots of the work made for Disney movie’s concept art has been shared with the public, and is well known for its amazing quality, and its attention to every detail.

There are varied styles in Concept Art ranging from photo-realism, to traditional painting techniques.

Concept art is an essential intermediary between art and design, and it is a very valuable tool to communicate and promote a project.

The Sketchbook Project 2012

The Sketchbook Project
It’s like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks.

___________________________________

Resources, rules, and other things to know

Details and overview

We recommend you read all the rules before e-mailing us with questions! Don’t let the rules scare you – they’re just here to help clarify the details!

Please send your sketchbook to:

Art House Co-op
C/o Sketchbook Project
103A N. 3rd St
Brooklyn, NY 11211

Project Overview

After you sign up to participate in the project, we’ll send you a package containing a custom-designed Sketchbook Project sketchbook with a barcode on it, your chosen theme, and detailed instructions about the project.

Themes

When you sign up for the project you will be able to choose from a list of 40 themes. You can select one for your book, or choose to have a theme randomly assigned to you. However, once you choose your theme you’re stuck with it – so please choose carefully. If you select the “random theme” button, the theme will be indicated on the sketchbook when you receive it (so please don’t email us about it prior to receiving your sketchbook in the mail). The themes are supposed to be a starting point, not a restriction, so remember to keep an open mind and consider the theme to be a guide.

The Exhibitions and Permanent Collection

After receiving the completed sketchbooks, the entire 2012 collection is exhibited on an international tour. Every completed sketchbook that we receive back in time will be included on the 2012 tour and cataloged and displayed in our permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library.

All dates and cities for the tour are subject to change.

The Digital Library

For a $20 fee, we will digitize your sketchbook and upload it to our online Library website. This means that people will be able to view your entire book online, leave comments, and tag it with subjects, media and other attributes. Sorry, but we cannot accept your own scanned images for upload to the website. This is a long process and the $20.00 goes toward the costs of manually scanning each page, building and maintaining the online database, and hosting the website.

Your Book

Don’t forget that your sketchbook is touring the country with us – we don’t want to be stuck in a car with your book if it’s covered in foul-smelling chemicals or constantly dispersing glitter! Please try to avoid the use of ties, sharp metal objects, random plastic things, art materials that could smudge, glitter, or any hazardous materials. Please note that although participants are welcome to rebind the books, the overall dimensions should not change and the width of the book should be not more than one inch across.

Notifications

Follow your book as it journeys across the continent! As a participating artist, you’ll be able to receive e-mail or text message notifications each and every time your book is checked out and read! Follow your sketchbook from city to city and connect with other artists and visitors as they experience your work. We’re not responsible for dropped texts, e-mail notifications that get sorted to the junk folder, or the costs associated with receiving text messages. Please note that notification settings can be changed at any time by logging in to your account.

Entry Fees

This is a massive, international project and there are many costs associated with its operation. Your entry fee isn’t paying for a sketchbook – you’re helping to offset material and shipping costs while supporting the Brooklyn Art Library. Your entry fee also helps cover expenses related to the maintenance of the website and digital library, supports our dedicated team of librarians, and allows thousands of sketchbooks to travel more than 20,000 miles. Phew! Unlike many galleries, we do not jury work. Everyone who sends us their completed sketchbooks postmarked by February 1st, 2012, will be included in the tour and our permanent collection.

Refunds

We do not offer refunds for artists who do not finish a sketchbook, regardless of the reason for incompletion.

Group Discounts

We offer group discounts for any group over four. We also offer discounts for educational groups – please contact us directly for more information.

Mailing your work to us:

  • Postmark your work by February 1st, 2012. We’ll do our best to get books into the tour that are mailed after this date, but we CANNOT guarantee it.
  • Please do not send packages that require us to be there upon arrival or require a signature. If you do, we will do our best to receive the package. However, we are not responsible for packages returned to sender if we are not able to receive them.
  • We try to check in work as quickly as possible. However, it is a lengthy process, especially close to the deadline. Please be patient while waiting to receive a notification that your book has been received and cataloged. Everything we receive will be checked in at least one week prior to the first exhibition date.

Your sketchbook will not be returned

We do not return sketchbooks. Your work will be included in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library and will always be available for viewing.

NFS

The Sketchbooks are not for sale.

Images on the Art House website

All the images in artists’ profiles and the project photos section are uploaded by the artist. Art House does not, and can not, upload or take photos of your work with the exception of official project digitization. If you want to upload your own images, make sure you take photos before you mail us your work.

Unforeseen Circumstances

Here at Art House, we do everything we can to keep your work in pristine condition. Unfortunately, unforeseen problems sometimes arise. We are unable to replace your work in the event of loss or damage. We are not responsible for missing, stolen, or destroyed artwork, but we’ll do our best to fix anything that happens. We know sketchbooks are a bit like children and we’ll treat them with care and respect!

Copyright rules

Your work is your work. We will never ever sell your physical work without your express permission. We retain the rights to use your work in promotional materials and advertising across all formats. We also reserve the rights to publish your work in an exhibition catalog or other Art House publication. We reserve all copyright to any published materials. Please note that digital images may be shared and disseminated under a noncommercial Creative Commons license, in order to better share the Sketchbook Project with a global audience.

Emailing

We will do our best to respond to your email in a timely manner. However, please remember to read through our FAQs and rules before contacting us. The best way to ask a question is to visit our support board. We cannot respond to all emails, especially around deadlines when things get extremely busy. Our thanks for your patience!

Exhibition Photos

We document each exhibition and encourage participants and visitors to take photographs of the Sketchbook Project tour. Photographs of submitted books may not be used commercially without the consent of both the artist and Art House.

Summary of rules

Everybody likes to skip this part, but we recommend you don’t! We’ve kept it short and sweet:

  • If you didn’t complete last year’s sketchbook, we cannot accept it for this year’s Project. Please sign up for the 2012 project to participate!
  • Your book must remain within the dimensions of 1 x 5.25 x 7.25 inches. It can open up to something wonderful (of any size), but it must fold down to the original dimensions. You are welcome to unbind, rebind or alter the book in (almost) any other way. If you want to use a thicker stock of paper, go for it, but please do not make the book larger than one-inch thick.
  • Your barcode must remain in place on the book – no moving or covering it. An altered or unreadable label means we have to disqualify you from the tour.
  • You are free and encouraged to alter, design, and work on the cover of the sketchbook!
  • The theme is a great starting point, but in no way is meant to be a restriction. If you feel limited by it, just loosen up and have fun. It’s just a guide!
  • Your book must be postmarked by February 1st, 2012. No exceptions.
  • We do not offer refunds (including the fee for digitizing) for people who do not finish a sketchbook.
  • All sales are final! Please read the rules if you are unsure about signing up.
  • If you do not receive your sketchbook due to a shipping issue, you have until November 15, 2010, to notify us. After that date, we are unable to issue refunds or resend sketchbooks.
  • We reserve the right to switch sketchbook books, brands or sizes at any time without notice.

“Design the Polish edition of your favorite book”

“Design the Polish edition of your favorite book”

For reference, check out the many examples of book cover design in Poland on 50 Watts. You could also dig through sites like Terry Posters.

Prizes:
First: $400 USD
Second: 1000 Polish Book Covers and Born Modern: The Life and Design of Alvin Lustig
Third: Pioneers of Spanish Graphic DesignJudges:
—Aleksandra and Daniel Mizieliński, editors of 1000 Polish Book Covers, founders of Hipopotam Studio, and book collectors
—Peter Mendelsund, book cover designer and the man behind Jacket Mechanical
—Will Schofield aka 50 Watts aka the guy writing this

Details:
Submission deadline: Friday May 20th
Artwork: jpgs, about 600 px wide, sent to 50wattsContest[at]gmail[dot]com
—The submission fee is zero dollars, made payable to the Ghost of Jan Lenica
—Does the title need to be in Polish? That would be really fun, wouldn’t it? (But if you can’t quite master Google Translate or the accents, don’t worry about it!)
—Who is eligible?: Anyone in the entire universe, not just Poland.
—What do you mean by the “Polish edition”? I’m asking you to create a fake cover in the style of the Polish book designers featured in this post and elsewhere on 50 Watts. Do I have a preference for styles from 1920 to 1985? I do, but don’t let that “cramp your style.”
—What is your ulterior motive? Pierogi endorsement.
—How to describe the contest to your friends to get them to submit: 50 Watts is a website giving $400 for a book cover design.

For an extremely literal example of what I’m talking about (and this is also where I got the idea for the contest), the Spanish illustrator Javier Olivares created a fake Polish book cover for one of his whimsical side-projects. The cover on the left is a real Polish book cover (I featured it in this post) and the cover on the right is Javier’s fake cover. Javier kept the title/author of the Polish book, something I DON’T want you to do. For this contest, I hope contestants will look at all the many styles of Polish book design featured on 50 Watts, and design a cover for their favorite book (if I was participating, I would design a cover for my favorite book Jakob von Gunten by Robert Walser) in one of those styles.

This post is also the last of a series on the incredible, I-can’t-believe-it-exists book 1000 Polish Book Covers. (The first post focused on the covers of Daniel Mroz, the second on 1970s-80s covers). Edited by husband-and-wife illustration/design team Aleksandra and Daniel Mizieliński of Hippopotam Studio, the book is a fat brick of inspiration (dimensions: 4-5/16″ x 6.5″ x 3″): 310 designers and illustrators, 1040 pages, 2.4 ounces, covering 100 years of Polish book cover illustration.
