Brian Miller has created this awesome digital piece titled ‘Space Park: Celestial Seas’ for a game coming soon to Kickstarter designed by Henry Audubon and Keymaster Games. The game is called Space Park and in it, you get to ride a rocket to extraordinary destinations across the galaxy gathering crystals that lead to unlocking badges and more.
We’re back from another adventure through the exotic realms of Space Park to bring you the next cosmic destination: The Celestial Seas! Explorers of these shores will find an abundance of life in the oceans and the skies as eternal fountains spill off the rocky cliff formations under the stars.
Bringing this piece to life was one of the most rewarding challenges I’ve had as an illustrator as I pushed to find a fun composition for a world I was fortunate enough to create. I took a handful of twists, turns, and departures from my regular working method and explored new approaches to the sketching and painting of this piece.
For the creation of all of the Space Park realm posters, I opted to do full-color concept sketches using the iPad Pro + Apple Pencil in my favorite app, Procreate. This was a fun challenge because it allowed me to think about lighting right from the start, making big decisions quickly as I searched for my composition.
I’d wake up excited and within an hour of work, feel like the entire piece was a failure (this happened over and over actually). “Just keep moving…” I continued saying, pushing forward, forcing myself to tackle the portions of the piece in spite of any worry or concern things weren’t working.
Eventually, the details of the piece came together in unexpected ways and I wrestled into being one of my favorite posters in the series.
