Portraits de héros


Ce challenge tourne depuis quelques temps sur instagram et j’avais hâte d’y participer : Voici quelques personnages que j’aime et que j’ai réalisé en variant un peu de technique pour chacun… La sorcière Karaba (Kirikou et la sorcière, Michel Ocelot), BlackSad, (Juan Díaz Canales et Juanjo Guarnido), James Fraser (Outlander series, crée par Ronald D. Moore), Scarlett O’Hara (Autant en emporte le vent, Victor FLeming), Lady Oscar (Versailles no Bara, Riyoko Ikeda), et le comte Dracula (F.F. Coppola). Le plus gros challenge n’était pas de les dessiner, mais plutôt de les choisir ! 🙂 en bonus, une Dita von Teese hors cases:

That challenge is a new instagram trend, and I really wanted to give it a go !  Here are some of my favourite characters, from literature, cinema or television. I tried to diversify my brushes and tools, which was great fun. The hardest part of the job was actually to chose them :p

Des bouilles et des couleurs


Ho j’ai fait du chara-design, tu sais, pas grand chose, une petite anim pour l’heure du thé, voilà.

J’ai regardé quelques épisodes de Blackadder, et je suis tellement fan de leurs bouilles, de leurs costumes et de leurs gags. Une version un peu plus colorée ici, on se refait pas.

You know, just a little chara design, not much, and here’s an animation for tea time 🙂 there you go

I’ve been watching a few Blackadder episodes lately, and I love these series so much, the characters funny faces and costumes, the whole thing cracks me up every time. Here is a version with a bit more color, I can’t help it.

Familles contraires

Exercice de character design où deux familles doivent s’opposer.

La première, artificielle, prise par le temps et le business semble être interrompue par la prise de leur portrait. Ils sont suspects, en contrôle de leur image. La seconde famille semble plus naturelle, moins attachée aux biens matériels et laissent voir leur réelle complicité. 🙂

 

Can you imagine two opposite families?

The first one is the Pecabli family: They seem quite artificial, self absorbed, very busy because of their time-consuming job. I wanted to make them look like they are in control of their image, looking at the camera as if they were disturbed or interrupted in their business. Besides, i wanted the composition to look rather “flat” like a one-dimensionnal family portrait. It seems like they gathered to take a picture but try to hide something in the background.

The other family is the Dorante family: They don’t seem to care about being observed, they enjoy themselves together, selling bracelets, playing music, smoking and making jokes. Their pets have no leash and nothing there seem to be an overall feeling of ease and sweetness among them.

I hope you like the character design here, I really enjoyed working on those portraits 🙂 It was very interesting to imagine the different lives of those families.

Flapper Dancer

blackwomaNCAECILYCours d’infographie  ! Portrait d’une femme noire, avec pour consigne de lui faire porter un chignon, des boucles d’oreilles “plume” et un col en fourrure. Voualah. Jme suis fait plaisir sur le maquillage bien charbonneux et et sur l’aspect “douillet” de son négligé  😀

Hey! i’m keeping this website updated by sharing my latest digital work with you. It’s a 4 hour school assignment : we had to depict a black woman, wearing feather earrings, a fur collar and a bun. I had fun painting her like a 1920′s flapper dancer. Women at that time wore so much make up and sometimes had loose clothing that looked like lingerie, I find it very glamorous :p Got inspired. Hope you like it.  🙂
