Strange Behavior (Illustration) Entry: Tiziano Baracchi


This is a great piece! Wonderful composition, colors and concept. I love it! BRAVISSIMO! Good luck!


Thank you, and best of luck to you too! :slight_smile:


simply beautiful.


Thank you, Gilles.


Hi Tiziano,

Congratulations on the freelance work and on being selected for inclusion in Exotique 3.

You recommended to someone else to use Smart FTP, I was not thrilled with the FTP software I had been using so I gave it a try and found it works great! Thanks to the tip.


Thank you, Ralph! :slight_smile:

I’m glad I was of some help, Smart FTP has been the first I tried and I haven’t seen any reason to change, yet. :wink:


Ah, here it is! :slight_smile:

I’ve seen your entry in your portfolio (and CGTalks, of course) and it’s really nice to see all the detail images, but the step-by-step here is wonderful. Best of luck with the judging!

P.S. the piece seems to have been somehow overlooked in CGTalk and I wonder why, possibly it was posted too early? It definitely isn’t a matter of quality…


Hi Tiziano!!!Hey, sorry couldn’t be in here some more man.You did once again a huge pic here man and I congrat you on finishing man!.I wish you all the best and really hope to find you back again next time!Cheers Tiziano


Thank you, haijin. Yes, I probably posted it too early (at least I hope that’s the reason :wink: ), lesson learned for next time. :slight_smile:

Hey, OKMER! Don’t worry, pal I know how it is when RL gets in the way, I too had no way to be as socially active on the forums as I should have liked…:slight_smile:

I’m very sorry that you couldn’t finish your entry, both ideas were really great. I do hope very much that you’ll finish them anyway for your portfolio, they are too good to be wasted.

Here’s to next time :beer:, count on it!

P.S. sorry for the delay in answering, I tried a few times but the site was terribly sluggish.


Sorry for not posting earlier. Definitely one of my favorites! I love the sketch of the scout and the final render of the Scout. The shell hats are awesome and I love the attention to detail on the camo suits. I especially loved the expressions on the faces of the gladiators.

2 Thumbs up! You’ve got me wanting for more of the fairy wars, especially the scout.

Two questions:

What was your inspiration for the characters and the idea of Vintage Fairies vs. Moth-Fairy Commandos?

Also, how long did it take you from initial sketches to final render?

Keep up the excellent work. Hope to see more from you soon!

Hello, Ruy! :slight_smile:

Thank you so much for writing, I’m really glad that you like this piece.

Question one… well, I wanted to paint an action scene with a lot of characters, and the commando fairies were an old idea of mine that I hadn’t put to paper (or pixels) yet.
It was born of a ‘surfait of fairies’ so to speak, when, sometime ago they had become the rage and rampaged through every art-gallery in sight, I somewhat was tired of seeing vintage fairies or big-eyed fairies everywhere and thought of a ‘though’ alternative, wild commando-style moth-fairies.

Question two, difficult to say, really. I took advantage of the Challenge’s long deadline, but while working on this piece I also did some industry work and a couple of private commissions.

Hope to see you around in the new Challenge!
