Flying iron.

Disaster of the digital age: I just discovered as I was uploading this image that my original file was reduced and saved by mistake from a comfortable 5100 pixels wide at 300 dpi to a whooping 750 wide at 75 dpi. Ouch. Photoshop and Painter. 2005.

Hey Luc,

Man, your work is beautiful! I love this piece. I love the shadows that the planes are casting through the haze.

Hi Yarrow,
Good to hear from you again and thanks for the compliments. Congratulation on the completion of your project, it looks really cute. Hope you're well.

Hey Luc, just discovered your blog via Neil Ross'. Wonderful watercolour sketches here. I'm a fan of your work since seeing what you did on CORPSE BRIDE.
I'm working for Bibo in Nice on his film. He tells me you're friends right?

Luc Desmarchelier said...

Hi Matt,
Thanks for stopping by. Say 'Hello' to Bibo for me and tell him to send me his email adress so we can keep in touch. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with. How is it working on the 'Cote d'Azur'?
Stay posted for some of the 'Corpse Bride' stuff coming up in the near future.

I hear you, Luc, on such disasters. But still, looks great!

Good news: I found an earlier version that had been stored away on my Ipod. All is not lost.

Hi Sim,
Yes, it was a relief. I'm happy that my stuff inspires you to paint, this is the best compliment one could ever hope for.
