Artist
France
I’m 23 and a French student studying a very different subject from art, but really, art is where I must end up!

I wasn’t really into comics before I was 15, and not into drawing before 18. Well, I might still have a few drawings from an earlier time somewhere on the computer, but believe me, you don’t want to see them. Since I started to draw, I’ve continued to pursue the same goal: to be able to create the type of comics I like. Now, as an objective, that doesn’t mean much, does it? So I ask myself: what is it I like? By which artists would I like to be influenced?

I like dynamism and realistic anatomy –it must look correct if you don’t focus too much on it, and epicism. From my point of view, these concepts agree with art from artists such as Jim Lee, David Finch, Jason Fabok, and to a lesser extent, Frank Frazetta.

Let’s be honest, however. We don’t get to choose what we like. And there are many more artists whose work I enjoy a lot!

Name dropping time:

- Tim Sale: A Long Halloween being my all-time favorite superhero comic book.
- Eduardo Risso: 100 Bullets being my all-time favorite non-superhero comic book.
- Jean -Moebius- Giraud: Is there anything to add? I love both his Sci-Fi and his western work.
- Siya Oum: I was quite impressed by her Lola XoXo book. It’s a different type of post-apocalypse to which she’s introduced us.
- Enrico Marini: He’s made some of the most beautiful drawings of Ancient Rome I’ve seen. Moreover, he’s the writer, artist and colorist. Come on…
- Sean Murphy: Well I like post-apocalyptic stories, haven’t I said that already?
- Paul Pope: Well I like post-apocalyptic stories, haven’t I said that already? :)
- Hugo Pratt: The most expressive characters I’ve seen using the fewest lines. How could he do that?
And, obviously, many others…

Otherwise, this smiley looks really cool! :dummy:

Superman
Hi,

Here's a traditional drawing of Superman made with India ink, dip pen and brush. This is the first time I upload a traditional piece on DA. The reason is that I barely draw traditionally. It's more pleasant but way less convenient than digital drawing. Still worth it every once in a while though! So you may see new traditional pieces uploaded ;)

Hope you like it :)

The abstract sky was made with vladgheneli 's "my brush set - 2015"

Wolverine enraged

Hi,
Here’s another Wolverine drawing. When I finished the last one, I wished I drew a more dynamic pose. So here it is #1 

I hadn’t drawn a complete background in a while. I believe the last time I did was in November when I drew this Wonder Woman piece.

See the other Wolverine drawing from earlier this month.

Hope you like it :)

Gotta color these drawings now! The last few ones have been left aside after the inking step so I better catch up.

Supergirl smiling

Hi,

Not much of a story to tell this time. I just wanted to draw a happier character. No severe expression, no dangerous weapon. Just Supergirl having a good time.

Hope you like it

See another Supergirl drawing
