Whilst completing my internship at ESO, I was tasked with creating faux “cheesy” illustrations inspired by old space comic book covers. The illustrations will be used in a planetarium show called “Out of this World”; new illustrations were required due to copyright issues with existing images.
After briefly researching existing vintage comic covers, I picked out 4 covers that I liked the most and made sketches of my own variations of the designs. After scanning the sketches, I redrew them on Photoshop using a graphics tablet and added colour. The final step was adding screentones and rough paper textures to give it a real paper feel.
The illustrations were very well received and have been included in the show.
