Well, I've got a lot of demands for a hair and skin making-of ... that's my reply I tried (once again) to do a video tutorial but my computer is too slow, so I've done screenshots :/ Its not a very original or creative picture but at least you've got all the steps. It's 100% airbrushed picture (except for the hair).
I used a very kitsch picture of Irina Sheik (I don't know who she is ^^') . I didn't use ref for the vinyl part. the hand belongs to my beloved one
I don't have time to write all the explanations
Note that it's nearly a COPY of a picture, it's far more easy than caricature, even if the method is the same.
DON'T USE colors picking (it's very dangerous, the jpeg compression generated a lot of "aberrant" pixels). You can desaturated your picture and your ref to compare the contrast and the luminosity.
A caricature of Gong Li (for me the most beautiful woman of the world ^^). It wasn't easy for me, I don't do this kind of lighting very often. I was very inspired by the tones (blue/green) of my talented friend Denis Zilber ([link]) . I used a photo reference for her face, you can see it on my blog ([link]). Done (with Photoshop) for an exhibition in Paris and Montreal this summer.
Caricature of Vamp Nadine ([link]) I started a loooong time ago Probably one of the most "clean" cg work I ever made. I tried to have an 80's airbrush rendering. Thanks a lot to our french airbrush master, Hubert de Lartigue ([link]) for his advices for the face. Done with Photoshop.
A fan art of one of my favorite character ... My first idea was to make a picture of Lynda Carter but my wife was not agree ... So once again, Chloé was my model ^^ I think someone at DC have already done a steampunk version of some of their heroes but I'm not sure. I like the idea of a "tesla lasso" even if it would be totally useless ... I was very inspired by Sir Thomas Lawrence, one of my favourite painter. I tried to have a more "painting-like" renderinf this time. Done with Photoshop, on a single layer ^^' Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Martson and the property of DC.
A lot of people asked me to do T-shirts, so here's the first one. I did a 2hrs long video of the process (with my horrible french accent ^^). It will be available on Digital Painting Techniques: Volume 4: [link] I did a wallpaper: [link] You can find the T-shirt here: [link]
Hey everyone, it's been awhile. Trying to practice and draw more because of the texture/interface/website assets program I currently have at work.
So this is just a Photoshop practice. Used mainly one layer because I really wanted to paint, instead of using effects and tricks and multiple layers. Almost abandoned this thing when I started to paint the chainmail but hey! Managed to finish it! No idea how much time it took though.
It is based on a great stock from that you can find here [link]
That was the idea behind this. The Joker needs promotional materials that will raise awareness about the grand gala he's hosting. He'll be unmasking Batman in front of the whole world. Gotham city would be littered with these posters.
The Joker also wants personalized VIP invitations for the rest of Batman's nemeses. I'll upload those later.
Having designed Hysterium Theatre's logo for them, they approached me to design the poster for their first show: Jonathan Larson's Rent.
Because many amateur theatre groups had performed this particular show in the UK over the past 12 months, it was important for me that the poster should look sophisticated and not in any way derivative of the now iconic and famous Broadway and West End theatre designs which had been drawn upon heavily for the film poster artwork when it was released in 2005.
I decided to keep the design clean using a strong visual that a viewer could immediately identify with. When choosing the way I wanted to treat the text, I decided to use a typeface that would allude to, but not replicate, the original iconic typeface. I wanted to create a dynamic with the angle of the text, that would accentuate the implied lines of the building's structure.
It had always been my intention for Hysterium's logo [link] to be adaptive and for this poster I changed the logo's colour to work with the colour choices I had used throughout.
Time: 1 week Medium: Photoshop Reference: I used a photograph I shot at Hell's Kitchen, NY

An idea I've had since maybe around 2010? Although the initial idea was a cat-boy...but I think I prefer the cat : ). recently I've been remembering a lot of old ideas I've had so I'll be going through them xD.
Hi guys. New spoil from upcoming MTG: Dark Ascension expansion. In Order to avoid misunderstandings I'll try to explain something that might be unclear about the main action in the illustration.
The shield of the main character is a mirror. In the world of Innistrad vampires can see their reflections in the mirrors, but they look twisted and disfigured, so in fact the vampires are scared by their own real nature. Something like Dorian Gray syndrome.
