Hi Everyone !
I'm a french artist, and it's my first post on this forum. I'd like to show my works outside France, and I'm very interested in any advices on my pictures, so...
I often work for RPG books ,and I'm trying to be published as a comic drawer (you can see some of my comic strips on my blog site below).
I also worked as 2D and 3D infographist on "Kya : Dark Lineage" and the next-gen "Alone in the Dark" games (Eden Games/Atari)
So, hope you'll like some of my works ; please don't hesitate to be critical and to give me some of your good advices.
Thanks a lot.
Here are 3 pictures for the next Asmodée's battle game who calls Hell Dorado. A middle-age universe with demons, half-beast humans,...
Some pictures made for C.O.P.S, a Siroz Team's RPG (Asmodée), about cops in a californian free state in 2031 :
Other pictures for the french RPG company : Black Book Editions
And at last, some personnal works :

I officially invite you to COW
Awesome work...i like the creature with this long eel like shape coming out of the head...is there a story behind?
Nice variety. The crotch on freak02 is especially disturbing and the latest update is very very nice. Since you'd like advice, I would suggest studying up on the anatomy some more. Like on the third piece I love the head and arms but the rest of it falls apart to me because the anatomy isn't believable to me.
holy shit.. WELCOME!!!! great body of work... That last one is tops..!!!!
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
loving all of ur pics, especially the 3d and the last ones
reminds me of the game - Disciples
thanks for posting.
willing to learn!
That's some seriously ass-kicking stuff!
The last one is just...woooaaahhhh!
Well, thank you a lot for all your comments.
It's cool to have some advices from this forum.
Fozzybar : Sorry, but, what do you mean about " I officially invite you to COW" ? I don't know what "COW" is… I guess my English is not so good...
The Big-Tongue monster was drawn just for fun. No special story behind him. Just the pleasure to find/draw interesting shape and the will to "create" a disturbing monster… Others like this are just waiting to be drawn in a small corner of my head !
Joeslucher : thank you ! I studied art anatomy during 2 years, but well… the legs/feet part is always a hard deal for me, you're right. So, I'll work especially this things in my next pictures !
Here is a "new" picture. In a different style, more "cartoonic", for a Burton-like RPG universe :
Thanks again ; see you !

Life is a long lesson in humility.

That first concept piece of the monster with the axe is really fun! Nice shimmer to him. And I love that black and white drawing of the showdown between the wolf gunfighter and the skeleton-zombie gunfighter!
Your work is amazing! I really enjoyed your cuter pieces the most I think...good monsters
Good work and good variety.
You have a nice handle on drawing, painting, color, and presentation. One element that is lacking is 'texture'. Metal is metal. Wood is wood. Skin is skin.... etc. All your surfaces have the same specular and rendering. While the lines show some 'texture', your fully color/painted fail to deliver.
Your character design is nothing short of genius. As I scrolled through the pics, the last image confirmed it for me, that creature juggling his eyeballs is pure creative genius. Amazing.
I preffer the overly detailed monsters, especially the 1st creature in the 1st image and the one in the 3rd pict.
My work is a combination of HR Giger and Geof Darrow, so you can understand my attraction to your stuff.
Hi everyone !
Thank you very much for all your critics and compliments ; they’re very helpfull and wellcomed.
Bomba : Yep, you’re right. I really have to work this specific part of my works… Thanks a lot for your critic !
This time I show you an illustration made for the « Pirates » contest of the french artists community « Café Salé ».

Your "Pirates" piece is delightful! So much detail - there is something new every time I look at it
