| Halloween 2019 - Gooseneck Seals

A funny sketch made for Halloween 2019 with my #iPadPro and Procreate5 (Beta). I just finished it up in Photoshop CS (color correction, text and filtering).

I saw those beautiful gooseneck swan gourds in Burlington, VT, a few weeks back and instantly knew what to do with them... Squash+sealion=Halloween theme paintover :)  

Enjoy!

| Procreate demo

I still can't believe that I am here at LightBox Expo with all my friends and so many amazing artists from all around the world, it's such a blast!
Today I did a live demo at the ArtStation booth using my #ipadpro 11 and Procreate, it was fun and thank you to all the AS and Procreate teams for being so nice and helpful 🙏
I wanted to honor the https://www.vultureday.org/ with some of my favorite birds, the Bearded vultures (Gypaetus barbatus) and their handler; Mr. Crokmor, the mortician on Hellspit (personal I.P).
So proud of the whole team behind Expedition Art Inc. and everyone who support us, thank you! Merci beaucoup <3

| Vulture Luv'

Trigonoceps Occipitalis or white-Headed vulture is a magnificent bird endemic to Africa. My team mates and I love to draw animals and at some point we have decided to use our skills for a cause, this is how Expedition Art was born. I am working on a series which focuses on the "bad guys" of the Animal Kingdom although there is no manichean order in Nature, everyone deserves some Luv'

| Nostalgiafolio: The Cave

This is a project that i have worked on around 2016 for an artbook but it has since been postponed... indefinitely. I experimented a bit with Modo and the idea was to keep fleshing out some ideas for my I.P project MUD (now Hëll5pit).

I want to revisit the concept of anamorphic sculptures later on other images, i think there is always something fascinating about discovering the secret hidden in the spatial layout of skewed and slanted shapes (somewhat related to the weird little guys in the foreground). This was just a test but a good base for more explorations! At the time i was still working at SEM and this explains the little appearance here by Lara Croft ;-)

| Halloween 2017 - Creepy Slashers

I will post some of my Blogger's posts here from time to time in order to centralize my doodles & experiments. So let's start with the stupid Happy Halloween creepy twin-slashers Butter & Nut! They were made in Procreate with my iPad Pro and finalized in Photoshop, voila!

When I cut that butternut squash open, I knew I had to do something with it... besides a great soup! And I really couldn't resist to take a pic and paint-over that one, check out the process video below :)

:) I know... gross!
