Olive c est vraimment magnifique!
L' athmosphere est superbe.
J' adore les details sur le poisson.

How many times for this picture?

Incredible and imaginative! The only thing I'll note is that the spikes on the pilot of the machine make him hard to tell apart from the rest of the parts, at first glance he looked like a funky shaped gear.

05-30-2005, 10:22 PM
Thanks everybody,
Starbuck>> Yes merci l'ami! c'est quand que tu poste un truc???...
y.puig>> Yes Yanik! thanks! it takes me around 6 or 7 hours I am not sure because I start it one day and finish it another day... and congratulation for your short film...:beer:
Empath>>Yes, I see, perhaps should I have to give him an other color to be different from the gears...thanks

Thanks again!

strong use of colour to create something so vibrant and full of depth, plus the style of the drawing makes it unique. Well Done!

05-30-2005, 10:43 PM
Very cool, I love the image there. Certainley seems to have a Tim Burton influence to it when I look at it. Good job :thumbsup:.

05-30-2005, 11:29 PM
GOSH, this is cute!
Photoshop, ma geule.... :) Looks like 3D.... How the hell did you make these metal textures?
Vraiment bien, vraiment drole... les couleurs sont magnéfiques!

05-31-2005, 01:44 PM
hehe that' so sweet;) i like the lighting

05-31-2005, 06:30 PM
I really enjoy the mood and lighting in your picture. Fantastic color. Something little is missing though... maybe I'm wishing for another floating piece in the clouds far behind the ship? Nahhh, maybe not! Looks fantastic.

Trop cute!!

J'aime beaucoup !
Nice dreamy feeling!

06-01-2005, 05:52 AM
so nice pic!
I like the style and the color,and it's fantasic and cute!

06-01-2005, 07:32 AM
Gorgeous use of colours! the design reminds me a little of Horologiom comic series by Lebeault, which is great :D

06-01-2005, 09:47 PM
Thanks everybody!:)

AbsolutionZero >> thanks! and it's true there a small Tim Burton's influence...I really like it!

MedsasHead >> there is no 3d in this illustration, it's full 2d made!
I am drawing the shape of machine using brushes to put shadows and lightings ( I am using some white color in overlay mode on the layer for the lightings, it preserve the background color) Then I put textures in overlay mode or else on the flying machine to find the best result (I am always drawing some lighting again after this step to adjust some details) .It gives really interesting renders! en tout cas content que ça te plaise...

birdybear >> Yes I see,another floating machine in the background should be a good idea! thanks!

turtle-rn>> I have never seen this comic but I am very interesting to see it, thanks !:)

O! delicious fish, but it's eye is too bright, like another sun.

08-01-2005, 01:15 PM
What a beautiful picture...:love:
It´s simply perfect! I really love it! The colors, the lightning the machine, the arrows and the big fish... beautiful details!
Great work!

08-02-2005, 10:23 AM
It's a very warm and tranquil picture. It also leads a life of it's own.:thumbsup:

08-02-2005, 09:02 PM
I find this very inspiring. Not often i see pics that can stand alone or fit in perfectly to a children's book. Not much else i can say, but the mood and the playfulness is pulled off without compromising the light mood(no pun). I could easily have become stiff, but didn't.

Nice one.

08-02-2005, 11:06 PM
really nice lighting that leads the eyes flow,,cool~

08-03-2005, 12:02 AM
simply beautiful. 5 stars :love:

08-03-2005, 10:52 PM
Silly yet facinating in a delightful colour pallet. What a nice image! My only critique would have been a bit more story. A silly machine- but where's he going? Where's he from?

Oh, I forgot to say this: This work is perfect to view at the same time you listening to Jean Michel Jarre´s compositions:)

09-23-2005, 08:36 PM
OMG. i LOVE this kind of style :D

Like old leonardo da vinci machines mix with some weird unknown,
Reminds me of Lemoney Snicket's A series of unfortunate events :love:

EDIT: 5 stars :thumbsup:
