Here are some of the best pieces I've bookmarked on dA, the quintessence of my inspiration.

Front portrait lighting study
A 3 hours study done on livestream of a front portrait, with a 4 lights setup: Ambient, left, right and bottom. I've used several photo references and a quick lighting reference done in daz 3D.

Here's the livestream, but the video won't last more than a month:…

C&C are welcome ;)

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
As odd as it could sound, I've started my improbable journey to digital art greatness as a musician. I spent 10 years of my life playing various world percussions, from Mandika's djembe to Persian tonbak. While traditional world musics have always be my field of predilection, I've also digged into jazz and pop-folk.

For the next five years, I've been a software developer, but eventually, I realize this was too far from an artistic life for me, so I decided to come back to my childhood love, illustration.

Now, I'm a full time professional colorist. I'm currently working with piblishers such as Soleil/Delcourt, Ankama, or YIL, but I'm also open to commissions and collaborations proposals.
