Concept Art Illustrations

Here are some concept art for Gardens of Miranda. The first one, a wide view of the forest where the main action takes place, by famed paleo artist Douglas Henderson, best known for his restorations of Earth's distant past.

Based on the above Henderson forest concept art, a photo composite test image was created (below). I shot different sized model trees, vines and seedlings against a blue backing, using  the same lighting set-up, and Greg Bossert and I spent a few hours on the computer placing, stretching, squishing and color correcting the various elements until we got an image that approximated the artwork but was photo real, because we used real photos.

The other art concept illustration below, is a wide low-angle view of the desert and the monolith where our story unfolds, was done by movie concept artist Brian Matyas.

Another view of the Heli-bug puppet, one of several forest inhabitants.


  1. So making art from stories? that was really impressing! A person with wide imagination and who can convert it to art is really one of a kind.

  2. Any kind of art comes from inside it can never learn or nobody can perform any kind of art if it does not hidden inside him. Art illustration is a very difficult art in itself but here drawing a garden in illustrator is really amazing!
