    Thanks ! :]
    I think the mind is particularly efficient when you feed it ; you have to see many things, read many things, etc. Then your mind will blend everything you saw and will make something out of it ! The sketchbooks here at ConceptArt.org are a huge source of inspiration...

    Thanks man ! :]
    There is another sketch. Inspired by Duc Truong Huyen's Slumscraper.
    ...and yet another one - about a year old - inspired by the tower of Babel.

    This is what a magnetic storm looks like on Duridani.
    The weather observation towers planted along the Duridani coasts, now completely abandoned and dilapidated, are all relics of the prosperous old Republican age who has seen them being built.

    You have a very nice line and you handle those WCs really nicely. I think as your compositions develop you'll be doing nicer and nicer work. Good Stuff.

    Your sketch in post 6 reminds me a lot of some Guild wars art, by Tinfoil. You've good some good work, and confident lines. Try to work on those poses, some of them look a bit stiff or unnatural. Also, it might be cool to mess a bit with saturation in your watercolours, by watering down some areas.

    Good sketchbook! Keep it up

    @Abrodos : yep, Daniel Dociu is one of my sources of inspiration concerning the environment design. He's doing really extraordinary things !
    Thanks for your advice, I'm working on the rigging of some basic characters. I'm looking forward to take drawing courses in order to improve my knowledge of human anatomy.

    @Ken : you're welcome ! and thanked ! :]

    These are all good, but that first one is OFF THE CHAIN! I would buy that in a second. How much is it? Prints for sale?

    Fantastic stuff! Your watercolours really remind me of Quentin Blake, but your illustrations just have a sense of grandeur about them, especially the environments. Try to experiment with more use of white-space though. Wish I could find a couple artists online but the names elude me.... But there are a couple artists out there that use a very faint almost white wash over their whole paintings, then only use colour in the heavily shaded areas, it gives a very nice effect.

    It's not something you'd have to stick with but it could be something for you to explore more then bring back to your own punchy-vibrant style.

    Thanks everyone !

    @NakedZergling you're kidding !
    @BlightedArt glad to learn that my work reminds someone of Quentin Blake's thank you ! concerning the white space thing, I think I see what you're talking about, but if you recall some names, let me know !
    Anyway I can't really "play" with color when using watercolors... I mean it's limited; if I don't like an area I painted, I can't just re-paint over it ! That's something I could do with acrylic, but I never used it. I need some courage to begin learning it - moreover I have some blank canvases waiting for me in my studio... :o

    Daily sketch !

    I really like how loose your lines are! Really nice pen work.

    I'd definitely like to see some things in other kinds of media besides just pen, too, if you have any!

    Soo much fun to watch! Traditional mediums are always my favourite. I reaallyy like your pen stuff, Lots of confident lines that make it look intricate and interesting to look at for hours! Im a fan =D Do you find France has a lot to feed your mind with? I'm moving there in a few months and excited to be immersed in art culture

    Thank you everyone.
    Sorry for the absence, I have been quite busy recently (I'm moving to India to study animation !).

    @NakedZergling I think deviantArt offers to sell prints, I'm gonna take a look... anyway I wont set the price higher than 0,01$ hehe !
    @Amarok yes I'm gona scan a lot of papers I filled recently, mostly graphite things.
    @popwilleatitse1f I had not yet the time to begin "real" painting, hopefully when I'm settled in India I'll work more on color... !
    Thank you VanDog
    @Pamz1e many thx ! However I don't know how to answer your question; I believe that wherever you are, things as simple and ubiquitous as light - being drastically different depending on the latitude and the environment -, architecture (any architecture, especially natural ones !) or human faces can give you inspiration. Culturally speaking, french people aren't always the most rich or welcoming ones; I found much warmer relations between people in Sri Lanka for example. This could be thought of having nothing to do with drawing but it really has ! I actually have filled a whole sketchbook during my - too short - stay in summer 08 (though this is not worth showing I think), thanks partly to this atmosphere. I remember light was also very special there...
    Aaaaaand artistically speaking, I'm afraid I can't really say... you must know about the french-belgian comic "industry", which is very rich and prolific. Besides that... ? I don't know. You'll see by yourself !
    I forgot to say that I live in Marseille, which is a quite poor city, culturally speaking.
    @Cameli yeah, comin' right up !
