Well. I haven't abandoned this place, after all. And I come back with another detail rich-empty in the concept work. But I had a great time thinking about a story for the "movie"
I'd rather design movie posters for imaginary films than do some cute cliched artwork just for the sake of beign cute. Right now I don't feel I can join the conceptual art world, but I would like to. Illustration is great, it's cool, but I don't want to be... "empty" forever.
Anyways. Maquinaria. Spanish for machinery. I liked the steam punk look this was taking, so I decided to keep it. I didn't want to think much about a title or a plot, so I simply decided to make a "movie" about a city that depends on machinery to survive. A very vague plot summary is written on the cover, but it's in spanish, and it's no really worth it.
Maybe I'll write this a a short story. The truth is that, if you think abou it twice, it's not a bad idea at all... Fantasy/scifi, yeah, but I think it could be quite original... If comebody is interesting in developing the concept I can always give some details and make it a collaboration. I wish I could do that with somebody: One writes the story, the other one designs the dvd cover xD
So, now my favorite part (I hate this, I hate this so much): listing all the stock. When internet is slow like a snail it can be really painful to wait for all pages to load and all that. So probably, for now on, I will make this part more simple, and just credit the author and where I used it, rather than leaving a link to the precise photo. I know, it's better to show how the photomanipulation was done, but some stockers have huge galleries and I can't search through them.

That's all. I have another three posters. I will upload them now.
Ahh, by the way, you see the drawing of a city in the background? I did it. I draw quite complicate cities in my free time. If some day I have the balls to paint one or make it look like more than a bunch of lines, I'll try and upload it.
