Day #3

One of today's studies, I'll have to learn to simplify and indicate more. This was a nice practice!

Trying to keep up with Florent Lebrun, Timothy Rodriguez, Paul Chadeisson, Pierre Lazarevic and John J. Park, these guys are amazing, check them out!


Back to daily studies #1

General / 03 December 2019

I have bought awesome gumroad tutorials by John J. Park and inspired by Timothy Rodriguez, Paul Chadeisson and Florent Lebrun, I have started doing daily studies again. Here are two from yesterday and one from today.

A random interesting tree called a "bottle tree" which appeared on my twitter timeline: https://twitter.com/NaturelsW…/…/1201532727654305792/photo/2
And a screencap study from the new Star Wars show "The Mandalorian".

And a screencap study of "Penny Dreadful" from today.

I hope you like them and thank you very much for sharing all this knowledge and techniques John Park!



  



The main focus is to explore different themes, subjects, fill my visual library, to think more about shapes, brushstrokes, textures and simplification and of course to have a daily practice.

I hope you like them :) !



New Personal Work, Adélia

Work In Progress / 24 October 2019

Hello everyone

I started a new personal work, it's a work in progress but I wanted to share it with you. My latest character from our Symbaroum tabletop RPG sessions, Adélia. She is a changeling gentlewoman thief and a virtuoso swordswoman. She was born in Ambria and after a difficult childhood in the streets, she was found and raised by a traveling circus troop. Then she decided to leave them and explore the world on her own.

I really enjoy her and I hope you will too.

I was listening to the Grimm OST from the game Hollow Knight while painting her, and that could totally be her theme song if she had one even if she seems shy and calm in this one ;) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDJGY92Gv6k



Stay tuned for future udpates and thank you very much to all the old and new followers as well as the Artstation staff for the pick and for the amazing support on my Catarina Portrait, it means a lot and I hope you will like my future works as well.  

Artists of the Week

General / 01 May 2019

I will share my favorite artists (current professionals, promising artists or old masters) in no particular order almost daily. 4 pictures / artist. Just their name and links to their work.

I created a tumblr just for this; https://artistsoftheweek.tumblr.com/  

Enjoy!  

Personal Sketches and Possible Patreon/Tipeee

Work In Progress / 10 March 2019

Hey!

A preview of Skaäl, my changeling sorceress from Symbaroum, she is a cursed artefact huntress (she will have green reptile scales on her skin) and she is a master duelist as well. That's the kind of personal sketches I often do in my freetime about our sessions and personal projects. I would like to do more of them in the future when I can.

It is one of the reasons I am thinking about opening a Patreon or a Tipee.
There I would share exclusive personal sketches and studies I don't usually show, WIPs and more in the future such as livestreams, personalised critics etc... if there's some audience.

Would you be interested in supporting me to discover more of my personal work? And what you like to see from me if that happens?

"Le Temple de l'Aveugle" 1st Preview

Work In Progress / 01 November 2018

Hey there! Here's my first blog post, I totally forgot I had this feature so here we go.

It is a crop of a big Symbaroum (Check it out if you don't know that pen and paper RPG, it is great) personal illustration in the work inspired by https://www.artstation.com/lapetitegarnouille ' scenario we played a while ago... It isn't even a third of the complete picture so stay tuned for more.

My portfolio was lacking big complete illustrations so I have been busy on this one between client works.

And before you ask why the woman, Kelva, has no clothes on her top, she was a changeling shapeshifter witch who could turn into beasts and she'll have animals skulls on her belt, furs and of course arms. Same for the guy, Derkan, he'll have legs, he's not a ghost, this is still an early WIP but I hope you like it and that you are intrigued.

What do you think they are facing ?
