Retropolis Rocket Ship: the Premortem Postmortem

May 10th - via:
In what may be the only evidence, well, ever, that I am ahead of my time, I'm beginning this project's portmortem before it has died. That's right: I've got the bone saws out and I've trained the Enigmascope right on the problem area, which is,... (Read More)

The Pseudosemifinal Picture

May 5th - via:
After a couple of days in Photoshop the picture is possibly finished, though I won't rule out my taking it back to the shop in a day or two. That does often happen once I've looked at a finished piece for a bit. But as of this morning, anyway, the... (Read More)

Final Lighting, though not the final image

May 1st - via:
Today's Retropolis Rocket Ship preview shows us the picture's final lighting - though it's still not the final picture. I need to render the two layers at their full resolution and when that's done there will be quite a bit of retouching in... (Read More)

In which the rocket ship begins to come together

April 23rd - via:
In today's sepiatone update there are a number of big changes. You'll notice that I've now dropped in actual characters in place of all those eerie bone systems that we've been looking at up to now: that's the obvious change. The other change was... (Read More)

It's all about the dames

April 23rd - via:
Today’s Kickstarter Retropolis Rocket Ship preview is rendered in glorious sepiatone because until I’ve sorted out the final lighting it would otherwise be pretty hard for you to make sense of the latest additions: real characters! I’m still... (Read More)

April 21st - via:
I mentioned earlier that I didn't plan to create any new characters for the Rocket Ship picture. Then I showed you the one I made. Well, I guess I've done it again. I'd gotten pretty interested in the new gear - the space helmet and gauntlets - that... (Read More)

April 17th - via:
Here's today's update for the Retropolis Rocket Ship print. At this point I've left off the wireframe overlay and I'm letting the color speak for itself - not because it's done, since the final lighting will contribute a lot there, but because it's... (Read More)

Work in progress update: April 14

April 14th - via:
In this recent preview of the Retropolis Rocket Ship print you can see that I've begun to move forward through the ship, adding the gizmos and bits and shiny things that make the ship go. I won't explain: it's technical. Details that you can't see... (Read More)

Retropolis Rocket Ship Kickstarter Update, April 11

April 11th - via:
So today I’m about a week in, all told, to the Retropolis Rocket Ship Kickstarter project. I’m still toning down the colors because at this stage the colors don’t really mean anything. They’d only confuse you. I mentioned earlier that I... (Read More)

The Retropolis Rocket Ship: now, with more character!

April 7th - via:
The actual Retropolis Rocket Ship scene still looks just like it did on the "Day One" illustration for its Kickstarter page: but that doesn't mean I'm not already working away on it, as you see here. Because characters are just about the most... (Read More)
