Spotlight: Butterfly Boat



"Butterfly Boat" foi uma ilustração que começou a ser idealizada na mesma época em que criei as ilustrações "Kraken Adventures" e "Follow Your Muse", quando eu estava interessado em barcos à vela (fragatas em particular...).

The idea for "Butterfly Boat" was born while I was working on "Kraken Adventures" and "Follow Your Muse". I was interested in sailing boats in general and in full rigged ship in particular.



Depois conluir Kraken e Sereia, fiquei empacado em Butterfly Boat por algum tempo... Um monte de esboços se seguiram até que eu ficasse satisfeito...

After Kraken and Mermaid were concluded, I started to work on Butterfly Boat but it didn"t take too long for me to get stuck... I did a lot of sketches before I finally found one that I thought it was good....



A idéia era criar uma espécie de "Barco Solar", uma espaço-nave movida pelo chamado "vento solar". As cabines em forma de bolha seriam capazes de se soltar e quando o Butterfly Boat pousasse na superfice do mar, elas poderiam ser usadas como pequenos submarinos. Gostei muito dessa idéia...

The original concept was to render a kind of "Solar Sail Ship", a space ship able to use the solar wind to between planets. The bubble-cabins were detachable so when the butterfly ship lands in a planet, it actually does it on the sea surface and the cabins could go off and move around like little submarines. I liked this idea...



No final, deixei o design do o barco mais distinto (nos esboços originais, ele parecia um barco virado de cabeça para baixo com umas bolas de natal penduradas...). E a idéia de navegar pelo espaço permaneceu, mas agora num espaço versão "fantasia" (Até porque as velas do Butterfly Boat teriam que ser muito maiores para realmente funcionarem no espaço!).

In the end, I decided to make the design of the boat more distinc (In the original sketches it look more like a cross between upsided down ship and xmas balls...). And the thought of a space ship survived after some fashion... Now the Butterfly Ship goes through a more fantasy, dream-like idea of the outer space: If it were the real space, the sails would have to be a lot more bigger than that!
