    Arctis' laboratory =UP dec 27th : crab-man=

    Hi everyone,
    There are very interesting stuff in that forum, a lot of life here !
    Here's my little participation (I don't want to be the "saurian aliens" obsessed painter...).
    These are pencils I did during holidays in french's Alpes, and my first watercolors, made on a travel in the west USA last automn.

    Those are your first watercolors? Damn, those are nice. How much time did you spend on each of them? The colors and the compositions are very nicely done.

    madplanet
    : I don't remember, because on holidays, I don't look at my watch very much.

    A little update : some researches for a comic project I had a while ago... a family portrait.

    Well, Blog, I was watching another thread, one of the best here, and I found a harsh comment you posted there, then I went back here and I found this another one...
    Then, of course I saw your own thread...
    Please, explain your opinion, because it's easy to spit and go away ;
    Then be more humble in your remarks, regarding your own skills ;
    To end with, get more artistic culture by looking at some great artist's sketchbooks, it will help you to make the difference between researches and finished pieces.

    The faces of the young man and woman are very very beautiful (stuff for my favorits folder) and the last two looks like facial try outs. Mind stuff. Dont stop posting those - a lot of people here like to see that as well!

    vigostar & dashi : thanx, guys !
    Fellah : you rule, man : good to have someone like you here.

    Indeed, These researches were made for that page, the 2nd of a comic I abandonned, because I found the style too "commercial", not enough personnal, so I left that direction.

    Hi peeps,

    Been a loooong time sleeping for this thread, but let's end this coma with some little researches !

    I've been quite busy on comics done in a realistic digital way (those who remember my illustrations see the style I'm talking about), and now I feel the need to come back to a more spontaneous, dynamic style in traditionnal media : good old pencils and painting

    While working on my other stuff, I've been thinking about a fantasy project which takes place in Paris, 1910, "la Belle Epoque".
    Here are some first researches for the faces of the narrator and his father.
    There'll be more if you're interested.

    I hope you'll enjoy

    Bye bye
