    So, I take the opportunity of a tiny holiday break, a handful of days no more, to unload the stuff I've done during the last months.

    _ These are chara designs done for Ubisoft's M&M Dark Messiah. They don't appear in the game finally. I had to draw several concepts and push them as far as possible within 5 days and here are the finals:

    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    _ Recently I got hired to draw the covers of Dan Simmons's Hyperion for the french market. I was a bit scared yet very excited since I'm not used to paint sci-fi themes, but in the end it is obvioux that Hyperion is much more than just sci-fi so why not me heh ?! There are eight volumes so more will come very soon.

    Hyggdrasil:

    my own take on the Shrike:

    a crop of his face:

    a bishop of the Pax:

    some warmups:

    _ Now some random covers:

    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)
    I think many of you have already seen this one since it was the cover of InQuest Gamer magazine and it's on the back cover of Exotique 2.
    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    some more...
    Tyrants & Kings II (John Marco)
    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    Tyrants & Kings III (John Marco)
    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    A Feast for Crows (Georges RR Martin)
    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    the Years of Rice and Salt (Kim Stanley Robinson)
    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)


    and here's the new pin-up I did for the most Rock&Sexy bar in Paris named "Les Furieux":
    Hyperion / Dark Messiah / HNY everyone !!! (EDIT)

    Actually I've done a lot more stuff for WotC and Wizkids and White Wolf for example but the art is still under NDA even though it was done 6 or 7 months ago... frustrating as always...

    Fantastic. I especially like the one with the knight riding towards the castle.

    yay, i love this work so very much, but this one in particular strikes me: the throne piece. the only thing that bothers me is the straightness and awkwardness of the robed figures' fingers. if they werent' so tubelike they would be more like fingers.. awesome work here mate! congrats on the back cover!

    o__0!!! I likey mucho! heheh. But really, the king who is about to be killed and the chick with the gun = my faves in this dump, with a couple of the scenaries. Any more laying around? Simple Sketches perhaps? Hmmm?

    KUDOS!!!

    Whee, Dan Simmons art Cool, I'm digging the bishop especially, the costume design is lovely done. The Shrike of course is rather freely adapted, as is the Yggdrasil.

    The stabbed king is another great piece, as is the rider in front of the big castle. Show us more!

    Great stuff!! *inspiration folder*
    thanks for sharing, I love the lighting and texturing on the king piece...

    Question: I've been trying to find out how you guys make those cool looking multiple-line strokes(first pic)...now yours have a twist, they are multi-colored within the stroke, How in the heck did you do that???

    Damn. How is it possible for you to get any better! ; ) Awesome new stuff. I especially like the Hyperion cover, the Bishop and the first M&M character, but lets be honest here, its all effin amazing.

    The knight riding towards the castle is one of my favourites of 2006.

    The Hyperion stuff reminds of Martiniere's work. I like what you're doing with these. It must be very challenging to do covers. I can imagine how difficult it is to please the fans of such epics!

    EDIT: the New Year's pic is great too! I like the experimentation in the technique.

    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers!
