Tutorial 2

As the image became more detailed, the creature looked like it was too close to the characters. I added those trees in front of it, and got rid of its leg.
And still I was struggling with the lady...till the end!

Tutorial 1

I should have taken an earlier image than this first one. It would have shone a badly painted green canvas. As you can see I moved the characters a lot. The hardest one was the woman.

Giant Gorilla!

I wanted to paint something serious, you know like a sunflower or a beautiful sunset. But then I thought naaaa...Maybe I'll just paint a giant gorilla and a guy with a Tommy gun instead. Ah, and there's his girlfriend going : " Mon dieu un gorille géant!!! ( she is French you see)".
So there it is. It's done in acrylic, on a roughly 50cm x 60cm canvas. I've only worked on it in the evenings, to relax after a 10 hours doing digital paintings for Weta workshop.
Please look at the tutorial next so you'll know how to avoid doing this kind of thing.

The Famous "Moustache dinosaure"

Nobody knows exactly why the creature had a moustache. 
Scientists are still debating this very important issue.
 One thing's for sure: he was very successful with the ladies.

here's a quick end-of-the-day photoshop sketch of GRUNTO.

Grunto is a legend in the weta workshop design room. Even though Chris Guise was it's creator, every artist is free to draw him as he sees fit.

Ze digital age

It is time, my mother tells me, to enter the digital age and to have a presence on the net.
I've thrown away my old steam powered computer and transformed some of my drawings into a series of zeros and ones...
This image of Kilt was done for a best wishes card two years ago. It's a quick pencil sketch colored with fake watercolor (acrylic paint with a lot of water).
