[EN] Hello everyone!

Here we are, the art contest hosted by Voxwave to celebrate ALYS’s 3rd birthday is over and my entry validated (yeah o/)

I’m realy proud of this drawing because it was the occasion for me to try a lot of things in terms of art. I have to thanks human s and gods because it’s after reading their artbook that I realized my drawing were kind of poor in terms of visual reading.

There is a list of all the things I tried to put in this one 😃
1/ Colors: by using inspirational photos I tried to have a general atmosphere with colors that match between each other, even if I had to change original design colors for it. Usualy I don’t really pay attention to my colors so, big change haha
2/ Key elements: I already used that, but there I tried to reinforce the composition with lines all going to Alys’ face.
3/ Painting: Alys was done on a single layer (I think that my PSD file contains only 3 or 4 layers, except final visual effects as color settings). I really start to love this way of drawing, it gives you such a freedom during the whole process, gives a soft and smooth render on the painting where only light show elements. It gives me the feeling to get back to my oil painting lessons, and I love that ^^
4/ Details: moreover painting in one layer, I also tried to play with polishing. So the face and bust are the more polished elements when the rest is more blurry and roughly, it keeps your eyes focus on the main subjetc, Alys.

So, all that text to say that I just loved working on this painting and I can’t wait to see the result of the contest!

Go have a look on the other entries, some of them are little gems 😉

As a bonus on my FB page, I also post some steps of my process ;D and maybe a video with a part of the painting process later ^3^

Have a nice day, I’m going back on my PS4 to see my friend Evie Frye in the victorian London’s streets o/

[FR] Bonjour tout le monde !

Et voilà, le concours de dessin organisé par Voxwave pour les 3 ans d'ALYS est fini, et ma participation a bien été validée (ouf o/)

Je suis très fière de vous présenter ce dessin, car il a été pour moi l'occasion de m'essayer à beaucoup de choses auxquelles je ne faisais pas spécialement attention avant. C'est suite à la lecture de l'artbook Humans and Gods que j'ai pris conscience de la "pauvreté" de mes dessins en terme de lecture visuelle.

Voilà donc tout ce que j'ai essayé de mettre en place dans celui-ci :D
1/ Les couleurs : en me servant de photos thématiques, j'ai voulu adopter une ambiance colorée plus puissante avec des nuances qui fonctionnent dans les mêmes "teintes", quitte à modifier un peu les couleurs du design d'origine, parce que habituellement je ne fais pas trop attention à la cohérence de mes couleurs.
2/ Les lignes de forces : ça je l'utilisais déjà, mais j'ai voulu plus appuyer la composition globale des courbes qui amènent toutes vers le visage d'Alys.
3/ Le painting : Alys a été réalisée sur un seul calque (je crois que mon fichier ne contient que 3 ou 4 calques de dessin, le reste c'est les effets colorimétriques de retouches mis sur la fin). Je commence vraiment à apprécier cette technique, elle donne énormément de liberté tout au long de la peinture et offre un rendu très doux où seulement les lumières font se détacher les éléments. J'ai l'impression de retourner à mes cours de peinture à l'huile, et ça me plaît beaucoup ^^
4/ Le détail : en plus de travailler en onelayer, j'ai également voulu jouer sur la finition des éléments. Ainsi c'est le visage et le haut du buste d'Alys qui sont les plus net, les autres éléments étant peints de manière plus rapide. Cela permet également de donner le focus sur le coeur du sujet, Alys.

Bref, tout ça pour dire que j'ai adoré travailler sur ce dessin, et que j'ai vraiment hâte de voir les résultats !

N'hésitez pas à aller jeter un oeil à la galerie contenant toutes les illustrations, il y a de petites perles ;)

Et en bonus sur ma page FB, je vous mets aussi quelques étapes montrant l'évolution du dessin ;D Et peut-être une petite vidéo montrant un peu mon process plus tard ^3^

Bonne fin de week-end prolongé, moi je retourne geeker sur ma PS4 en compagnie de ma copine Evie Frye dans les rues du Londres victorien o/
