The Shrimpmaid

I don't think that does mean a thing in english, does it? Not a mermaid but a shrimpmaid. First painting done on my new Cintiq 22HD tablet. I will write a quick review about it soon enough, that can interest someone out there to read about my thoughts for color Gamut etc...

The Crow and the Fox

I was walking in Paris like a month ago and fell in love with an anonymous painting inspired by the famous Jean de La Fontaine's fable (that's what the owner of the painting told me anyway).
Since then, I've had in mind to do my own version of the fable as foxes were one of my favorite animals when I was a kid. I've finally found the time this morning to paint it at last, 'hope you guys dig it ! I've used the help of a wonderful photo found on the internet as reference for the the fox's head but cannot remember where I got it from though, so thanx to the author if he sees this, I'll be happy to credit him or her.

Hell Breaks Loose, a few steps

Some screen shots saved from the making of "Hell breaks loose".
It looks pretty obvious that the original sketch values has nothing "much" to do with  the final illustration. I initially thought of a guy smoothly walking towards some monster eggs lit by daylight, set in an abandoned  tube station, isn't that obvious? ;) Anyway, I kept the composition and decided to go the route you know by now.

Bram Stoker's Dracula

As close as I could get from the original novel! Because I've always had a soft spot for the Bela Lugosi film (though far from being the best film), I've added a black and white version too. There's a picture in progress on my facebook page, if you are interested. And don't forget to follow me there too, that would be very appreciated ;).

"This is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween"

Well, I couldn't do my usual Halloween horror movies Marathon this year, so I had to paint something, didn't I? Though I'm 3 days late, don't mind if I did :)


Lucca Games and Comics 2014 (the return)

Hi everyone, I just got back from Lucca (in Italy) for one of the biggest Comics and games con ever, well, apparently one of the two biggest if not the biggest in the world as I was told! Let me tell you that was huge. This magnificient medieval city gives itself completely to the event, loads of people walking around in full cosplay, concerts, celebrities etc..., a place to be to be believed.
This was one hell of an experience signing and sketching for the nice and passionnate people there buying the book from the Savage worlds italian team. (great, great guys!)
Anyway, here are a few shots of your host from the event, I'll share some more on my facebook page if you wanna see, go and have a look :).
