Plan 9

That's the name of a cocktail my friend Andrew created... with cognac and grapefruit... sounds yummy. But I don't really drink. I would enjoy the taste though.

here is an other sketch, an hour and a half, photoshop.

Working on different things. Like the angle of the head, slightly down, the values of the skin and of course the expression, a little worry, a little angry and a little insane.
let me know what you think.

Finally, after many weeks if not month a little post.
I've been working quite late these days and the project is going pretty well. The reviews and the press is going quite well. The game is building up a big expectation audience.

I've also been working a lot on the storyboard to have something to show soon. I still have a lot of stuff to do and as I'm a little perfectionist I'm ready to start over or revisit every single shot!

I took some time of on everything to continue to work n my values. I did the following painting in photoshop. About 2h worth of work. (yes based on a photo).

After a couple of these I would like to work on a more personal style.

A couple of things:
-radiolab has a new show online and one section speaks about inspiration and creativity. How it is 90% of hard work and 1% of talent. Which I would totally agree. In the last few months I 've feel a big improvement just by putting more hour in my painting and in my thought process.

-there is also a great documentary about how art became a commodity. The Mona Lisa curse.
I found it on Painting Perceptions

Blake and Mortimer

I don't know why but I was recently thinking about this comic book that I was reading as a kid.
The adventure of Blake and Mortimer and how much I enjoyed it. The stories were always a mix of sci fi and detective work. Most stories happens during WW2 or early fifties.
There are multiples things that I enjoy about these books. First of, the design of vehicle and other machines.

Second the action poses of the characters are fantastic, dynamic but not exaggerated, they sometimes make me think of propaganda posters during the war.
I also love that stereotypical arch enemy, Olrik. that always escapes and resurface in an other part of the world

I got some volume from my old book shelf and start reading them again. One thing I totally forgot is the amount of text!! Every single frame as a text explaining what you see.

I'm not complaining at all, the text is so well written, but I was so surprised. a book like this will have no success today. But look at that!:

We've always seen movie made from books and news story, then from american super heroes; we recently seen movies made from video game concept and soon some movies from european comic books. I would love to see someone make movies from the "blake and mortimer" stories.
respecting some of the design and 50's style.
