Hi there !

Sometimes I answered to people sometimes not... I simply forget to answer, or don't have time, or the question has been asked billion times, or it's too complicated to write it in english.

so here some answers: (sorry if there are english's mistakes, I'm french ^^.)

Do you take commissions ?
Nope, I really don't have time ! Sorry guys. I won't answer to note/PM about that.

Do you do prints of your illustrations ?

Not for the moment...

Can I use your art ?
It depends for what, If I don't answer then it means "no". Don't take it badly... It just takes too much times to make proper sentences to say no and I don't have time... sorry.
And please don't use it for 9gag or any other website like that.

What software do you use ?
Mangastudio 4EX for comics and drawing.
Mangastudio 5EX for colors.
I draw on MS4 because it's easier and faster for me.

Where can I get your brushes ?
My brushes are here : nesskain.deviantart.com/art/Br…
They are the basic one from MS5 but I changed the sensitivity.

Do you do tutorials ?
You can find some step by step in my deviantart's gallery and some livestream here : www.livestream.com/nesskain
My english is not good enough to do a clear tutorial.

Are you the bearded guy that you always paint ?
Nope, I'm asian guys ! ahah :D.

Who is the beard guy you are always drawing then?
Just an original character which the design is inspired from a singer , but I won't tell who :D.

Where did you learn to draw ?
I learned and still learn with internet, you can find almost everything.
I spent a lot of time on Posemaniac to train my eyes to see fast and be accurate.
For perspective, I really like the book from David Chelsea, everything he said is very good. I bought the DVD from Scott Robertson, it's really nice for free hand perspective...
For anatomy I learn from photography, at the time I followed a lot of nude photographers on deviantart and draw every pictures every morning...
I also learned a lot from this website: www.asahi-net.or.jp/~zm5s-nkmr… , even if it is in japanese I understood a lot of things.
DVDs from Vilppu was helpful too.

And most important, I learn from drawing from life. Trying to draw every situations!

How much time do you draw ?
I draw 8~18hours a day. the average is 12 hours I think... I can't really say, there are days I don't draw... :)

Do you use references ?
Yes, I do. When I don't know something I look for it.

What are your inspirations ?
My inspirations are mainly japaneses manga artists, you can find the list here: nesskain.deviantart.com/art/In…
I don't read a lot of american comics or french comics.

If you guys have other questions, just ask me I'll try to answer it here.
hello guys,
I'm pretty busy, and can't afford to take any more works/commissions. I won't answer to note anymore.

sorry about that...
Nesskain.

these days I got a lot of comments/critiques about my characters design, especially the head... look too 2D for a realistic style as mine, but I don't consider my style as realist... The head is the only part (and the feets ^^) that haven't studied yet I don't want them to be too realistic... like the ears I never tried to understand them (if you look closely u'll see that they are all wrong ^^).

I know that my style is getting more "flat", but it's the only way I found to make my drawing more "dynamic" :x...
Maybe I should go back to anatomy stuff and volume.

So the question is: what does make all my head character look flat? should I studied head or let it go and it will improve by itself with time?


Oh by the way, I don't know how to say it in english but my project "Le cercle" will be published ^^.

P.S: sorry for my poor english :)

Hi guys,

My Project "café rouge" (red coffee) turn out into a little portfolio, Many professionals contact me to work with them. I didn't expect that, the aim of this project was to practice my drawing skill. But from what profesisonnals said, I can easily be published, my drawings still need to be improved but the quality is good enough to be published (that's what they said).

So, I had to make some choices, I decided to finish the first chapter of Red Coffee (31pages with color) and then concentrate on others project for publication. It is very hard for me as Red Coffee was a project that I love to draw... And a huge disappointment as I didn't finish the project -_________- (like all the projects that I have done...)

By the way, the english translation is coming very soon, be patient!

hi guys!
you probably noticed it... I haven't submited any illustrations for month... The reason why is that I'm working on 2 projects the first one is Red Coffee (Café Rouge) and the second project is "Babel's Door". I was wondering to myself what I really want to do, and the answer was : I want to draw comics!
So I think I won't draw any illustrations anymore and focus on comics... I do love drawing illustrations I will miss it a lot...

Therefor, with my 2 projects I aim 2 objectives. The first is to finish "Red coffee" 'cause I've never finished any comic project...
What is "Red Coffee"? It tackles love story between a painter and a waitress. It will be along 92pages (in color!) for volume 1.
I can't say more because of my lack of skill in english. But the most of important for you guys who don't read french is that it will be translated in english by one of my friends so plz be patient ! It will be translated when i'll get 30pages, I hope to get some feedbacks from you guys!

The second objective is to (me and my script-writer) publish the comics "babel's door" , unfortunatly I can't say more cause we want to keep it secret ^^ but i'll try to show some sketches!

But I know that I will miss drawing illustrations maybe i'll do some sleepless night to draw some , ahahah ^^

See you around!

I'm 22 now (in 2 days)… what can I say… I'm feeling a little bit old but it's ok i'll deal with it ahah…
I'm disappointed with my drawing level, I thought that in 1 years I would have caught up with the delay that I took, it seems to be not enough and I need much more than that. It was a little bit dumb to think that I can measure the time that I need,it can't be measured! But sometimes I feel a little bit shocked, I should I've get this lvl when I was 19, but hopefully I woke up last years, its better than never! And sometimes I think what would be my level if I didn't stop drawing for 3years…
Anyway all that thinking is useless lol (and no I'm not depressive, hmmm just a little bit maybe lol), but its like that, and I won't give up it's not too late!

This year I worked on a lot of projects unfortunately I can't show you all the stuff… but It was very beneficial! And I finished the first part of Many Funerals, it will be published as a fanzine!

I'm about to start a new comicbook (in amateur of course) and I will submit it by chapter on deviantart in order to get some feedback from you guys! I think I will start in one month or two, I need to prepare the story and so on… The name of the comicbook is : Assassins , it's an old project that I wrote when I was 16, lol (btw I started to write Complex Basket when I was 14 lol). I hope I won't give up on that project!

and Yep I'm even more motivate than last years, I hope to improve faster!

PS: as always, sorry for my english ;)!

What do you guys think about my drawing style? some of my friends said that my drawing is no more "manga", when I started to draw they used to say that what I was doing was "manga style" but I don't think so, for me it was just inspired by it. Anyway I still think that what I do is not manga, but I feel a little bit awkward about the word "manga" . I tend to think that this word is meaningless, when people see a drawing with a "japanese style" they say "oh nice manga..." O_O O_O, anyway it's just a word!

I just noticed lately, that almost every month I forgot how I draw, normally I can draw almost whatever I want (of course with a lot of imperfection). But sometimes I just spend hours and hours to remember the way I draw arms for example... or the torso... and when I'am blocked I immediatly go studying anatomy and it is just getting worse... or I learn new thing ahah XD...

Forgetting stuff can be good in order to learn new stuff, but I just hate the fact that all the days I spent studying something just disapear by magic...

What about you guys?

P.S: I went to the concert of coldplay it was just awesome, I just feel inspire by their songs. So it means: more illustrations, with coldplay's song as theme!
