Following my recent liberation I confirm that I’m stuffed of drawing digitally and I will now only use paper for this purpose (because paper, I love you). However, I deeply enjoyed killing hours of commuting scratching my little screen and transforming a boring routine into an exciting one.
For adding the colours I experimented the use of vectors instead of my standard bitmap approach. I don’t understand why I haven’t done this before as it’s fast, clean, flexible and fun to play with.
Of course this is still a weirdo illustration of nothing in particular but it’s cool to me, I love exprimentation!
Here’s a 1am inspiration triggered by Illustration Friday‘s topic of the week: “Entangled” or the art of making things complicated. Sounds like an universal topic to me.
En guise de vidange de fin d’année voici un petit pack de cinq illustrations qui trainaient dans ma DS.
Malgré tout le bien que je pense de Colors! et du côté pratique de dessiner sur une console portable je commence à en ressentir les limites et le contact physique avec le vrai papier me manque. 2009 sera l’année du sketchpad sans pixels!
My first thought about the last Illustration Friday topic was that it will be quite inspirational but, finally, I went a bit further in the concept than expected and choose to sketch a guy who, after pretending too much, see his face on a mirror and don’t recognize himself… so he get surprised or even scared.
Here’s my feeling about the last Illustration Friday topic: Vacant, or how to get very bored and depressed because of doing nothing or having no interest in anything. It’s not fun but it can happens sometimes. That’s why it’s so important to stay busy and to do stuff!
