L’épopée Temporelle

This summer, the biggest (and nicest) french youtuber Cyprien asked me if I wanted to participate in project “l’épopée temporelle”, a very funny audio serie 10 episodes long.

He asked many illustrators to draw scenes from the story and I did two of them. On top of that, he liked my work so much that he offered me to draw the cover which gonna be printed in limited edition in posters and vinyl covers .

here we go

Ready to Rock !

Just a couple of characters who’ve been floating around in my mind for a video game project.

I’m just freely exploring the style for the moment. Let’s see where it goes 🙂

Time to catch up on the hype … quick sketch, about 30min

As you can imagine, it’s been a long ride and I couldn’t be more pleased with the reception of the game so far. I wanted to have a unique style and frame by frame animations and people seem to appreciate it very much. I hope to do more with 2D in video games as I think there is much more to show.
but now it’s time to relax a little….








A thingy

Since all my time is devoted to WB right now, I figured it’d be nice to share something not related. A thing from 2y ago I forgot to post at the time. I remember wanting to explore bright, vivid colors

Robin Hood – MoA

Hi all, just to let you know I’ve been participating last year to the last book of Masters of Anatomy.
Many artists having a go at Robin Hood, which is a very interesting example of how each of us might interpret the characters.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap

Hi everyone, I know I’ve been really quiet lately but I had a good reason.

Me and my associate Omar cofounded our very own game studio Lizardcube  , fulfilling a life-long dream of making a remake of Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap.

We’ve been hard at work for more than a year and half now and we finally unveiled the reveal trailer yesterday. We got an amazing response from the community, truly felt like a heartwarming welcome for the project.

I personally couldn’t be happier, I handle all the art by myself ( including this trailer ) and people seems to really appreciate the work I did on it. I’m glad that handdrawn art and animation can get such a good response, this is something I really like to see in a videogame.

So here is the trailer and few screenshots for you to enjoy

Until next time where we’ll show more and more of this fantastic journey.

thanks to all of you, really

Just that you know, my latest comic book, Les Chevaliers de la Chouette Tome 2 is now available in France.

At some point, I think I’ll write a post-mortem about my work in the comic book industry and the hard relationship it can be.

Linkle

Hey there, sorry for the lack of updates, I’ve been ultra busy with work.
We recently set up a video game company with my associate and we’re working our asses off on our first game soon to be announced.
In the meantime, I’m taking a quick break to draw Linkle (the girl version of Link) for the character design challenge of this month.
see ya 🙂
