DEATHFLOWERS

I was honored to be one of the 12 artists featured in the latest issue of the precious Beautiful Bizarre Magazine. I wanted to have at least one new-to-the-eyes picture to show among the 12 pages featuring my work. With all the commissioned work that makes my schedule 150% full, I barely had time for that piece.

I decided to jump in without thinking or planning anything. Working fast, instinctively and see what comes from it. I was ready to not even like the piece and just get rid of it.

But the opposite happened. The fast pace made me work without thinking too much, focusing on the painting flow and energy. Dropping elements in the piece and dealing with it, trying to harmonize everything.

DEATHFLOWERS came from that.

Thanks to the magnificent Laureline, and Sir Valnoir for the reference materials.
Thanks to Beautiful Bizarre for the publication.

Level Up / Session 42 / NSFW

. . .

Hey guys ,

I am honored to annonce that I have been invited to show my work process during a « Level Up! » session.
A live, online demonstration using Google hangouts.

I am very excited about that and also a bit nervous. Level Up! has been featuring so many great artists so far.

I have been thinking about the way I would go through the session, considering that I do not have the profile of a speed painter or a concept artist. My process is very different and slow. So I wanted to find a way to jump into the core of my work, skipping the long, fun (for me) and boring (to watch) part of painting anatomy. The model Laureline will be the base of the illustration I will be working on during the session.

I wanted to share here the initial process of painting the model, steps by steps.

Hope this helps !

B.
