"Xenomorph" : Part 2...

Making Of / 22 November 2019

Feeling like "David" sometimes...:)


Bye, have a great weekend !




"Xenomorph" : Part 1...

Making Of / 21 November 2019

Hi,


long time no see....

Well, when I was a student (25 years ago...), I drew a lot of xenomorphs. 

A lot.

Everywhere, everytime.

Just for fun and relaxing.


But since  the end of my art studies, no more xenomorphs.

Don't know why...

But today, during a short break, I saw the art of Oleg Bulakh...


And I knew at that moment that I HAD to start drawing a xenomorph again, 

25 later.

So, here is a very first 5 minutes sketch, done between 2 very "cartoon" and professional works :)

Just for fun, relaxation and anatomical drawings.

Don't know where I'm going with this girl-guy , but thank you so much, Oleg, for the inspiration !

This creature is really the most iconic and magnetic creature ever.

I think I'm definitely and deeply from Team Alien/Xeno :)

"Birth of Ivy" (Fan-art of Poison Ivy) : 2nd part...

Making Of / 11 March 2019

Hi,


Long time no post again... Sorry for that !

Well, my "In bloom..." project ( a Poison Ivy fan-art) is still on tracks, but I was very busy this winter : so few "free time" for finish it :)

However, here is a new "work in progress" !

Thanks for your visits and comments ; bye !



" The Whirl" (character design/ 2018 rework)

Making Of / 04 October 2018

Hi,


here is a "new" project. 

Actually, i'ts a rework of an old character I've made in 2008 for the RPG "Les Chroniques Oubliées" (Black Book Editions) : the Monk.

I'm not a fan of such an exercice, but, well, I really like that character and I wanted to do a "realistic" fantasy character with my today's skills.

So...

I hope you'll like this rework :)



 The old one (2008)...
