Amazing stories by olivier2046 Amazing stories by olivier2046
Just a little game : a false cover from Amazing Stories, the very first science-fiction magazine.

I really like these old covers because of their imagination and naivety. All of us, science-fiction addicts, are born from Amazing Stories!

I used watercolours on paper. That's all.

One wonders if the space-boobs would have gotten by the 1930s censors... :)

Lovely work.

Wow, stunning. The composition is fantastic, the whole thing has that retro, art-deco feel, and the watercolors are simply beautiful.

You have created quite a incredible mock sci-fi comic cover. You captured the futuristic gadgets that the people from decades past would love to employ in their drawings very well. If it werent for the fact that you told us, I would think that this was an authentic cover.

I dont understand how everybody else can make their watercolours look so clean.. Did you use mask fluid or something like that to create areas for the water? hmph... I guess I dont have the patience for watercolours to make them look as good and clean as this.

I only used mask fluid for the title, the laser and some little lights.
Yes it's just a question of patience.

Thank you for your comment.

Oww.

J'aime beaucoup, c'est un chouette pastiche de couverture, ça. En plus d'être fan de la bestiole, j'aime bien le rendu vert de la combinaison : D
