Painted nude

Hey,

some more serious practice this time,

from an black and white underpainting to full color, I’m trying to keep the painterly effect as strong as possible. i really liked punching those colors ┬áthat only makes real sense in a painting. Not perfect, still looks bad in my eyes, but I can see some progress, so I am pretty happy about that one in the end.

What do you think?

Still alive & the X-Men

So it’s been a while since I wrote something!

 

Lots of stuff changed since my last post, I’ve been really busy, but here’s the work-related news:

I spent the last year working on X-Men : Days Of Future Past as a set designer, and although it took all my free time for a year, it was a real blast.

It was hard to go to the studio at that time, but the project allowed me and the rest of the team to be really creative in many ways. We had the opportunity to design in all direction: sci-fi, 70ies, an ancient monastery, etc…. (That’s why in the movie industry, we all love time travel)
Had the chance to redesign some iconic pieces of the X-men world, like the Cerebro Console.

I’ll check if I can get some pictures cleared to post them here, otherwise, it’s mostly all over the internet at that time. It’s been out for…. like 6 weeks I think? And we are really happy here that the film is a success and a good movie (those two don’t necessarily go together).

I’m currently finishing work on another movie, The Walk by Robert Zemeckis

(staring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Charlotte Lebon and Sir Ben Kingsley) It tells the story of frenchman Philippe Petit that illegaly crossed on a wire the World Trade Center Twin Tower in 1974.

Too much work these days,
I’m really impatient now to go back to the studio to work on my own stuff,
but bills have to be paid (and I must say I’m lucky to work in that industry as a designer since its always fun)

Ciao.

 

New Start

Well,
Obviously, the first week isn’t especially entertaining.

In order to have a real fresh start, I decided to whiten everything I had done so far:
the tests, the incompletes, the not good enought or even those I just got tired of looking.

Fresh start

So here you go, dozens of white canvases.

Now all I need is inspiration….

Oh okay, I’ll post something I did two weeks ago in order to keep the interest. I know my dirty studio floor is not so captivating.
Here is my favorites from a live drawing session I went two weeks ago.
