Tonal practice

Hey there,

some tonal practices from various movies. Very simple and quick but good way to get the rust off I think.

Will have to keep on going if i want to get my values right

Can’t wait to talk to you guys about the project we are working on right now, it is pretty exciting! :)

cheers!

Horse I

I feel horses are a good way to practice grey tones. The muscles give a similar feeling to humans, but still, its anatomy is more forgiving than drawing a nude. Even though it’s not much of a problem with traditional media, I’m not to the point where drawing a nude on the computer is comfortable, I’ll proceed by small steps. Shades first.

So I did this as a practice and decided to push it a little bit.

later!

Daily Practice

Since I started working in the new company, I’ve been working daily on my digital art before I can get some time for oil painting: now that I’m in China, I don’t have a studio anymore.

I’ll get my colors and shadings in order before putting it into traditional medias. So here is some of the showable drawings made in the last days.

The rest of the team are all amazing digital artists, so its inspiring ;) Gotta get my skills up to par.

I’ll give the originals credits:
- original drawing by O O Joo (check on artstation)
- sculpture by Fred Fichet
- Original oil painting by Nicola Samori

later!

JULY 15 1995 – SREBRENICA
ink (linocut stamps) on paper
15 sheets 20″x26″
complete artwork 108″x80″

Here is the first artwork of the new serie I’m working on, called Frontiers of Myths (Les frontière des Mythes in french).
it’s  serie of the wars in Yougoslavia in the ’90. I was only ten years old at the time, and it was the first time I realized that not everybody was having a confortable childhood like me. The fact that genocides, systematic rapes or other methods of destroying a population were still happening in the nineties, and so close (in the middle of Europe!) was shocking for me.

It took me several years to go back to the subject, but I still feel strongly about those events, so I decided to do a serie about that subject. Here you can find the first artwork I’m releasing, the rest is coming in the next days!

Stamped 2361 times… one for each identified body of the Srebrenica massacre.

On July 7 1995, The  Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) under the command of General Ratko Mladić invaded the city of Srebrenica, located in a UN protected zone. During the whole week, the soldiers will capture and kill the population trying to escape the city.
We estimate between 6000 to 7000 victims, most of them males of any ages.
2361 victims have been identified to this day.
