End Of Year

So 2010 is over; I wish it was a great year for all of you and that 2011 may be even greater.

I end this year's posting with one of the most beautiful songs I heard in 2010, it's Parallels by The Soft Moon, hear that wonderful Wire-y bassline and the motorik drum beat, you just gotta love it!

The new illustration is going on smoothly, I'm making the background; I'll post the line drawing's scan when it's done! Talk next year! Ciao!

New Illustration

So here's the almost completed line drawing for a new illustration; I just gotta figure out some things and then it's ready for the markers.
This one will have a background because I just got to start drawing them  without procrastinating or I'll make the whole series without them.

Talk soon, ciao!

Just wow! Sadly this is just a commercial for N.5 E-book, but how would you feel about a Studio 4°C movie on N.5 eh? That would be the biggest animated movie of the 21st Century!

Taiyo Matsumoto is one of my favorite Japanese comic artists, he is hugely imaginative and I love his blend of manga and French comics influence.
N.5 is without doubt his coolest work, I also love Tekkon Kinkreet but N.5 has a whole incredible world, filled with strange characters and places!
I wish I could sometimes manage to give a Matsumoto feel to my drawings, but I'm usually too "precise" to reproduce a roughness like his!

New Drawings!

Just like the previous upload on my Flickr, a new one and an unpublished drawing from Zeta Zero Zap series II.
Look at the Tsomborga brothers reunite their bodies in one terrible soldier and have your fortune told by an expert astrologer.

I guess that I won't complete any new drawing this year, but I will surely post something more before the end of 2010. Have a great time, ciao!

Ensemble Economique - Hail

This is a really cool song from Brian Pyle of Starving Weirdos' solo project, his album Psychical is definitely one of the best records that popped out this year.
Going to post an older drawing on Flickr as soon as I get my laptop back, new drawings proceeding fast as well, maybe before end of the year there'll be two new ones ready to display.
I got a couple of cool artbooks in the mail, hope they'll be delivered soon, maybe I'll share some pictures on the blog.

Get Color

I finally found some time to complete the line drawing and start coloring this new illustration.
I gave it a quick scan just to show you some of the colors and a snippet of the mysterious other character appearing in the illustration; didn't adjust much of the scanned picture so the colors are not the real ones, my scanner is a little painful when it comes to color likeliness. It's an old one so I guess I may forgive it for that.
Anyway, I'm planning on finishing it all around the end of this week, still don't know if it'll be posted to Flickr right away.

Until next time, ciao!

Drawing In Progress

This new drawing is still untitled,right now it may look like a little malicious, but once it's done, you'll see why she's in that particular position. =)
I hope to be able to complete it soon, I'd like to end this year with at least five or six drawing for the series, maybe more if I work really hard on them.

Looks like things may start move faster now, with exhibitions and publications; I'm looking forward January because I'm going to Paris to visit Moebius' exhibition, I will be like a kid visiting Disneyland!

See you soon, ciao!

Thank You - Birth Reunion

I'm really looking forward Thank You's new album, coming January 25th.
I just love those pounding, kraut-ish drums!
Drums drums drums!

Ah, I'm posting some sneak peeks for a new drawing tomorrow!

A Song I Can't Stop Listening To Lately

This song is a frequent listen nowadays, it's the best track in Ambitious Lovers' debut album titled Envy.
I'm really into the mix of noisy guitar and punk funk/mutant disco vibe it has; and the interplays between the distorted guitar and the drums make me so happy!

Clash Of The Holy Smokes!

These are some sneak peeks at an illustration I'm working on, I'm almost done coloring the characters, then I'll start the background.
I'm going to make a smaller serie of illustrations this time, previous one had 27 of them, and I want to remake some of them to fit in these new line of works.

As usual it's a heavy paper A4 sheet, smooth surface, colored with Copics.

Detrocboi's blog, restarted!

Hey everybody; I'm back on blogger.
I had another blog where I used to post some updates about my works every now and then, but it was really poor, so I decided to open a new one rather than picking the old one up again.
I'm not really fond of blogging, but I'll try to keep this blog posted with news and other stuff; I think you'll get to know me better since I'll post stuff related to other matters other than drawings and illustration.

Now I gotta see if I can work up a bit of layout. Until next time, ciao!
