I'm Johann Bodin aka YOz, I'm artist covers for french editions. I also produced illustrations for the gaming industry, with the creation of illustrations from 2009 for the famous card game: Magic The Gathering Magic. And I work for video games, magazines and create a artworks for the bands.
I use the software alchemy much for my personal work because it allows me to work very intuitively and unconsciously, what I can not do usual with my work professional commission. I never start with an idea in mind. The method is rather to be guided by lines or blur. And with small additions of gradient such as the Renaissance painters with their technique of sfumato.
A working session with alchemy lasts no more than 2 hours to keep the essentials.
I like this fight in construction and deconstruction without the famous CTLZ!!
