taking a more cartoon-inspired approach. although it was not intended and no refs were used, i see a lot of `betteo influence here so i must credit him since he's one of my favorite artists here on dA!

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet in about 8 hours. used a chalky brush that comes standard with photoshop cs3. textures from cgtextures.com , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

Reminds me a lot of Psychonauts. Must be the way you drew their hands lumpily. :D

I first thought of Chagall, actually, with his flying over the town picture :)

Hi Loish!
It's a true honor to see the influence of Patricio Betteo in a French artist like you.
Patricio is a good guy (I meet him 2 or 3 times) and a mexican citizen as me. I'm really proud to have in Mexico probalby one of the best artist of the world!
Congratulations for your great homage!

Greetings from Mexico City!

And I'm sure he is fan of your work too, mademoiselle.
Just he's a little quiet and shy.
