Portrait Illustration Training + Fan Art of Assajj Ventress (STAR WARS)

General / 17 February 2020
Hey everyone! 

Thinking about opening up Portrait Commissions again very soon. So I'm training, and trying to be more effective, I'm planing to do my recent D&D party and I'm starting with Purre, the Tabaxi Rogue/Assassin of the group. Portrait done in photoshop in 2h.  

Process GIF for Purre: 

Bonus fanart of a sexy Assaj Ventress from Star Wars done yesterday because I was thinking about the Star Wars Clone Wars final season happening soon :) ! 

I hope you like them both :) !

Figure Studies

General / 11 January 2020


I hope you had great end of the year celebrations and I wish you a happy new year.

In the last two years, I neglected my practice of anatomy, and studies in general, I'm always in awe when an artist masters the human body to create great character designs like https://www.artstation.com/django-jy ,  https://www.artstation.com/peleng , https://www.artstation.com/yokell  , https://www.artstation.com/mischeviouslittleelf  or https://www.artstation.com/rogner5th 
In order to reach their level one day, I need to get back to the fundamentals so let's start ;)

I did a few with a mix of lineart and 2 values and the others directly by painting them. Here are few of my dailies (random poses from quickposes and pinterest, the first picture is based on photographies by Amel Kovich):

I'll also need to practice males and different body types. See you later with an another batch.

Day #7

Didn't have time for a study yesterday but here's today's :) I tried to change the lighting a bit and adding snow. I'm still not entirely satisfied with this study, I want to be more loose and textured, I'll have a look at Lixin Yin and Craig Mullins' works for that feel :)
Also 2h for a study like this is a bit much, I need to simplify even more. Also I never do environments but it is fun. Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

Day #6

Yesterday's study, a screencap from the movie "Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald". I really liked the mood and colors in the original. I focused on textures, colors and values, the face is a bit off but it's just a study so that's ok I guess :) .
