I’ve always been fascinated by The War of the Worlds, despite not finishing the book after 4 years of reading it…, so some 7 years ago I decided to create a digital painting in its name. I wanted to paint a new scene in a modern setting whilst keeping the aesthetic of the Fighting Machine. I think it was a success if a little rough around the edges, mainly the lighting and perspective.
The plan is to dust off my tablet and get back into doing some digital painting so I may very well revisit this and give it an “HD remaster” of sorts. But for now, here is my old painting based on The War of the Worlds, including the drawing process.
