long time no see. I was damn busy those last months, splitting my time between freelance work and a cool opportunity to make an exhibition in a new gallery called les caniches modernes -> the modern poodles (don't ask me why)in my small town.
I was supposed to start working on a comic book, a cool parody of the Xmen called Zmen, but i must confess i was a bit scared.
My goal was to create all the characters in CG, to have a reference to draw with for each of them. i know it can sounds stupid but this is how i work, a cool therapy to avoid the white page trauma...
I've decided to use this exhibition (Big in Japan) as a deadline for the creation of 6 of the main characters used for the first scenario (initially 7 but i failed). And it worked (i mean, 7th character appart, the others are ok. grr) !
And because obviously it wasn't a tough enough deadline, i went for serigraphy, considering i had the opportunity to work with a guy from the gallery, Mr ttdmrt .
I was my first time (shy) and it was also a world of new constrains to work with. Pretty interresting, it also gave me the kick in the butt to be more radical in my pictures and stop nitpicking with monkey stuff. Am i clear ?
So here they are, the Zmen. You can play who's who if you want.
They are some older works in the exhibition, but i showed them here previously, not gonna polute this thread with'em all unless you ask for it
They are printed on canvas and post process with acrylic paint, spray and a funky work with varnish and collages sometimes.
And if you're really motivated you can have a look at my blog (www.e338.com) for some more pictures.
Hope you'll enjoy. Waiting for your comments.
