Be indulgent, this one is certified organic painting: No 3D, No photos, Fair Trade coffee only, color picker only. Totally out of the comfort zone, good bye the matte painting techniques.
At first, one day before the end of the THU I had this vision of a huge thing, open in the front, with a tiny thing in front of it. A space hangar? A giant monster?
Anyway, I started with a first rough sketch, and my little lazy-fat-guy-on-the-couch in my head said,"f***k it, let's start with a 3D model"... and suddenly I had a vision of Alberto Mielgo, Ian McQue running after me, holding a sharp shovel in order to beat the sh*t out of me... So I dropped out the 3D idea, grabbed my stylus, open the color picker with a shaking hand... and VOILA!
