World War One by Kronosaurus82
World War One
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Titolo - World War One
Tratto - Matita B
Colore - Digitale
Software - Adobe Photoshop CC
Hardware - Macintosh MacMini
Originale - Matita su carta, circa 25x30cm
Data - Gennaio 2016

Una scena di una trincea inglese della Prima Guerra Mondiale, da qualche parte in Francia nel 1917. Una serie di elementi dovevano essere inclusi nell'illustrazione, e farceli stare tutti in una scena coerente non è stato semplice. Gli elementi principali: in primo piano un fante che scrive una lettera, accanto a lui il famoso SMLE – il fucile Lee-Enfield "corto" – e una maschera antigas modello 1917. In secondo piano altri due fanti fanno fuoco con la mitragliatrice Vickers – o meglio, col fucile automatico Vickers – e di fronte a loro il mortaio leggero Stokes. Sullo sfondo un tank MkIII "male" e, sopra, un caccia ricognitore tedesco Albatross D.III.

Nella scena ho cercato di restituire il senso di morte e disperazione di quella guerra assurda, e per un po' ho anche meditato l'idea di aggiungere cadaveri appesi al filo spinato... ma il libro è per le scuole medie, quindi alla fine ho deciso di non calcare troppo la mano.

A scene in a WWI British trench, somewhere in France, 1917. I had to include a list of elements in this illustration, and getting them all in a coherent scene wasn't easy.
The main stuff: in the foreground, an infantry man writing a letter, and next to him the famous SMLE – the Short Magazine Lee-Enfield rifle – and a 1917 pattern gas mask. In the middle of the picture two more infantry men firing a Vickers machine-gun, and next to them a light mortar Stokes. In the background a MkIII "Male" tank, and above it a German reconnaissance fighter Albatross D.III.

In this scene I tried to give the sense of death and desperation of that absurd war, and for a while I even considered the idea of adding a few corpses hanging from the barbed wires... but being this for a book for Junior High School I eventually decided not to push too hard on that.

Roman Limes by Kronosaurus82
Roman Limes
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Titolo - Roman Limes
Tratto - Matita B
Colore - Digitale
Software - Adobe Photoshop CS6
Hardware - Macintosh MacPro
Originale - Matita su carta, circa 21x29,7cm
Data - Novembre 2015

Il "Limes" romano era il confine dell'impero. Ai confini dell'Impero Romano si trovavano sempre torri di guardia e, in mancanza di confini naturali come fiumi o montagne, venivano costruiti anche muri con fossati e terrapieni a rinforzo. Non sempre il confine era chiuso, anzi: le popolazioni che non erano parte dell'impero erano oltrepassavano il Limes per commerciare i loro prodotti nelle cittadine costruite presso il confine.
Nella mia illustrazione ho voluto immaginare una scena di tipo germanico.

The Roman "Limes" was the limit of the Roman Empire. At the borders of the Empire there always were watchtowers and – where there wasn't a natural limit like rivers or mountains – a wall reinforced with trenches and embankments. The Limes wasn't always closed; on the contrary, these people who weren't part of the empire used to cross the border to trade their products in towns near the Limes.
In my illustration I depicted a scene of the "german" type.

Medieval Army Men

Titolo - Medieval Army Men
Tratto - Matita B
Colore - Digitale
Software - Adobe Photoshop CS6
Hardware - Macintosh MacPro
Originale - Matita su carta, circa 18x10cm
Data - Dicembre 2015

Le tre principali categorie di combattenti che era possibile trovare in un esercito medioevale di epoca carolingia.
Da sinistra a destra:
– Il cosiddetto "Cavaliere Leggero", dotato di spada, scudo elmetto e casacca rinforzata;
– Il "Cavaliere Pesante", con picca e armatura in cotta di maglia (le armature complete arrivarono solo molto più tardi, già quasi in epoca rinascimentale);
– Il "Fante", che costituiva la grande maggioranza degli eserciti dell'epoca ed altro non era se non un contadino o bracciante a cui era stato "caldamente consigliato" di prendere parte alla guerra gentilmente organizzata dal suo feudatario, e che si recava in battaglia con quello che di meglio aveva, ovvero gli strumenti del suo mestiere: martelli, falci, forconi o – come in questo caso – semplici bastoni.

These are the three main categories of army men you could find in a medieval army during the Carolingian period.
From left to right:
– The so called "light knight", armed with sword and shield and dressed with helmet and a reinforced jacket;
– The "Heavy Knight", with a pike and mail armor (your typical full armor came a couple of centuries later, about in renaissance time);
– The "Infantry Man", whom made up the most of that time armies and was just your typical farmer or peasant, who was warmly suggested to take part in that war his feudatory lovingly organized, and who went in battle with the best weapons he could find: his work tools, for example hammers, scythes, forks or – like the one you see here – a simple wooden stick.

Viking Longship

Titolo - Viking Longship
Tratto - Matita B
Colore - Digitale
Software - Adobe Photoshop CS6
Hardware - Macintosh MacPro
Originale - Matita su carta, circa 20x25cm
Data - Novembre 2015

La tipica Longship vichinga, altrimenti conosciuta come Drakkar, con la sua altrettanto tipica farcitura di baffutissimi guerrieri nordici. Dubito che i Vichinghi abbiano bisogno di presentazioni, e persino la loro nave gode di grande fama, sebbene – come spesso accade – la storia sia alquanto differente dal luogo comune.
Realizzare questa tavola è stato davvero molto divertente per me, anche se i dettagli della nave (soprattutto per quanto riguarda il cordame) non sono stati semplici da ricostruire.
Col senno di poi, avrei dato al "condottiero" in prua una posa leggermente diversa.

Your typical Viking Longship stuffed with your typical lot of beard-armed Northern warriors. I highly doubt Vikings need any introduction, and even their boats are quite famous, even if actual history – as often is – was quite different from the stereotype.
Making this illustration was real fun to me, even if some of the ship details (especially its rigging) were hard to figure out.
In hindsight, I'd slightly modify the leader pose.

Tratto - Matita B
Colore - Digitale

Hardware - Macintosh MacPro
Originale - Matita su carta, circa 25x35cm
Data - Novembre 2015

La tavola ritrae l'arrivo di guerrieri Saraceni sulle coste di una nazione del Mediterraneo. I Saraceni attaccavano sovente le città costiere per conquistare schiavi e bottini vari; nel medioevo le loro incursioni erano molto temute in quasi tutto il Mar Mediterraneo, tanto che le tipiche torri di avvistamento (che potete vedere nell'illustrazione) erano appunto chiamate "torri saracene".

This illustration shows Saracen warriors landing on the coastline of some Mediterranean nation. Saracens often attacked coastal cities to conquest slaves and spoils; during the Middle Ages, in almost all the Mediterranean Sea, their raids were so feared that these typical coastal watchtowers (one of which you can see in my illustrations) were indeed called "saracen towers".

Questo 2015 per me è stato lungo e difficile, per tutta una serie di motivi più o meno gravi che non starò certo qui ad elencare. Eppure, come finale scoppiettante, il destino ha deciso di tirarmi un ennesimo scherzo di cattivo gusto: il 13 dicembre il mio fidato Mac Pro è morto.
Così, improvvisamente. Scheda madre fritta. Il giorno prima andava alla grande, il giorno dopo non si accendeva più.
Dunque ho dovuto sganciare una cospicua cifra (mannaggia) per una macchina nuova, uno scintillante Mac Mini sul quale – per scaramanzia – non farò commenti e non esprimerò speranze. :P
Per fortuna non ho perso alcun dato, grazie al mio bravo tecnico di fiducia, ma sono stato fermo col lavoro per circa 2 settimane! Così adesso sono pure in ritardo sulle consegne... a proposito, non sto più postando niente di nuovo, ma non significa che io non stia facendo niente. Al momento sono al lavoro su 3 volumi di storia per la RCS, e mi sto anche divertendo. Spero di potervi mostrare qualcosa presto, anche perché oramai alcuni di quelli che mi seguono penseranno che io abbia cambiato mestiere! XD

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My 2015 was long and difficult – because of a whole series of reasons with various grades of seriousness which I won't list here. And yet, the fate decided to throw me an umpteenth curve ball: on December 13th, my trustworthy Mac Pro died.
Suddenly. Fried motherboard. The day before it was working great as usual, the day after it didn't even turn on.
Thus, I had to fork over a conspicuous amount of money (damn) for a new machine, a shiny Mac Mini on which – purely for superstition – I won't write any comment nor express any hope. :P
Fortunately I didn't lost any data, thanks to my good technician, but was almost forced to stop working for over 2 weeks! So now I'm also late on my work deadlines... speaking of work, I'm not posting any new deviations, but this doesn't mean I'm not actually working. At the moment I'm working on 3 History books for the important Italian publisher RCS, and I'm also quite enjoying the task. I hope I will be able to show you something soon, also because by now many of my watchers are thinking I might have changed job! XD

Italy
Born in dicemder the 21st 1982 in Milan, Italy.
I’ve always been interested in drawing and writing stories since I was a child. My fantasy grew a lot thanks to the Italian "Anime Boom" in the late '80s / early '90s, when hundreds of Japanese cartoons were broadcasted on TV. At the end of the Intermediate School (6th to 8th grade in US), I attended the Liceo Artistico A. Frattini (Art High School), in Varese.
In the summer of 1999 – between the 3rd and the 4th High School year – I saw the light: Comics. A friend of mine suggested me to see some Anime movies, such as Ghost in the Shell and Akira, and the TV series Neon Genesis Evangelion. In those years I started developing my drawing style and writing stories (which are only waiting to be published) I still continue.
In 2001 I got a diploma with good marks, but even before the end of High School I worked on some drawings for school text books, for Italian publishers like Bruno Mondadori and Principato.
In 2002 I met Greta, my kindred spirit, and my life has been pushed forward by a great positive force.
During 2004, I was bogged down in hundreds of ideas and projects, but then I saw the light again: my old passion for dinosaurs came back into me powerfully. During the summer of the same year I met the paleontologist Marco Signore, and we soon became friends and a fantastic work team in my first project, which begun in 2006: the "Dinosaurs" series, which tells the Mesozoic in six graphic novels published in Italy, USA, Japan, France, South Korea and Germany. This big project is finished after more than 4 years of work, and now I'm preparing to go on this difficult road.
