Salut Luc,
j'aime beaucoup ce dessin "jeté"
à l'atmosphère très celtique...
ne manque plus qu'Excalibur figée dans la roche.

La version suivante plus finalisée est très sympa aussi ;)

A bientôt

Salut Cyril,
Pour ce qui est de l'atmosphère celtique, c'est vrai que la forêt mythique de mon imaginaire d'enfance, c'est Brocéliande et toutes les fées et magiciens de la Petite Bretagne. Bienvenu à toi et merci du message.

Hey Luc,

I have a question for you. Are most of your painted pieces done in acrylic or guache? And do you still do production work with natural media or is it all done in PS/Painter now?



Mark McDonnell said...

I can see most of it is acrylic . . .sorry. But do you still practice this medium while working in production?


Luc Desmarchelier said...

Hi Mark,
Sadly, most of the color work is now done on computers. However, I still find it difficult to draw on the computer (even with the 'Cintiq') so most of my sketches and layout drawings are done the old fashion way, with pencils and paper.
I used acrylic, gouache, watercolors or even oils depending on the subject or the effect I wanted to achieve but I usually found acrylic paints to be the most versatile and practical medium of all.
