Introducing Tohad

:icontohad:

I discovered DeviantArt in 2005 when I was a student. It was 12 years ago, I should feel old, and yet I always feel like the teenager that I was browsing the various galleries of the site. DeviantArt was my first social networking experience, long before Facebook or Twitter. With its community from every country and all mixed techniques, DeviantArt represented for me access to an infinite world. When I reconnect on my DeviantArt, I feel like I always find a big colorful party where everyone draws without limits what he wants. I have been a Concept Artist / Art Director, for more than 10 years. All the while, I worked in animation, architecture, comics, cinema and video games. My career was built step by step. DeviantArt is the only gallery on the net in which I keep my old drawings because I want to remember the efforts it took me and the encouragement I received.  I shared on DeviantArt the pages of my webcomic "The Neighbors of Chaos", my Badass Cartoon illustrations, my first concepts art and now the first images of my future video game.

 I now have my own video game studio, my life is beautiful, but I know I don't owe this situation to my efforts, but to all the people I met. The internet is a fabulous place to meet a maximum of different personalities. I'm not the kind of person who would tell others to just pursue their dream to make it happen. Progress in an artist's career does not require that of will, it's necessary to develop empathy, to understand others, to better interact in images. Sharing your work, watching others and understanding their world is the best way to move forward. The image is a language and nothing makes me happier than when one of my illustrations is appreciated by someone on the other side of the world. I hope everyone finds the pleasure I have in my exchanges on DeviantArt. I want to continue to grow with you.

Deviousness Award Winner

Browsing Tohad's gallery is like agreeing to embark on a journey beyond your wildest imagination, with no need to use vacation days. One can easily picture themselves in any of his colorfully expansive landscapes, so it's easy to understand why people flock to his page. However, Tohad goes a step beyond, offering words of wisdom, technical advice, and behind the scenes glimpses of the life of a Concept Artist giving tens of thousands of people even more reason to return to visit his work daily. His work is a magnetic force and his kindred soul keeps us coming back for more. It's for these reasons that we are delighted to award Deviousness, April 2018 to Tohad.

Sylvain’s Art portrays fantastical events in a simple realistic tone, the stories within his images is what transforms them into beautiful Graphic narrative fiction,I have followed his work for a long time, it’s a magical journey of creative sorcery,his imagery makes me dream

Tohad is one of the most inspirational artists on DeviantArt. I absolutely love how he uses color - they are so real, I just wanna jump in! I hope one day I will be able too to bring such a great atmosphere to my works. If someone deserves this award, its Tohad, Congratulations!

Tohad is a great master for sure. You’ll find the rich collection of bright and vivid works with very interesting subjects and original presentation in his gallery. Moreover, they are always made in high quality and viewer always maximally embraced by the depth of every scene. However, I was always impressed by those stories which Tohad tells through the visual art. All of them are so inspiring that make you enjoy every detail for a long time. If you like the digital art I recommend you certainly visit his gallery. Inspiring by his works for many years, he is one of those who is really worth of Deviousness award. Congratulations! 

I can't find a single piece in Tohad's gallery that hasn't had me smiling from it's inspirational quality and style. The rich, masterfully applied colors, interesting shape language, and expertly rendered scenes lend to a vivid and descriptive tale, in every illustration. Tohad's gallery seems more like a collection of windows into living fantastic worlds, rather than simple illustrations. This award is well deserved, for an artist who inspires many of us to reach farther with our craft

Tohad's work is both playful and incredibly lifelike. Light bounces emphatically and shadowy forms melt together. It is a body of work that is truly a wonder to behold. It has been a joy to watch such a lovely style develop over the years

If you're looking to take the scenic route, Tohad's gallery is a must-see. I have long admired their colorful, vibrant background art, and I thoroughly enjoy their strong use of light and shadow. The wide variety of various landscapes is appreciated, as being able to see such diverse scenery from a single artist is always a pleasure. Every piece is interesting to look at! When I'm in need of a new desktop wallpaper, Tohad's gallery is one of my first stops. I'm glad to see such a deserving artist receiving the Deviousness award. Congratulations!

Sylvain is one of the most remarkable illustrators I've find on DeviantArt. I've read about his great projects out of this platform , like video-game creating or giving master-classes about illustration to other artists who love this medium. Being selected to redesign the Mushroom Kingdom of Mario Bros must be the dream of each illustrator and this demonstrates his professionalism and high level of creativity. About his art, I'm speechless, I love every single detail of his artworks -- his unique/original technique and of course the colors he uses in his very futuristic creations. Keep up the good work Tohad and congratulations on your Deviousness Award!


Congratulations to Tohad!
