Shaping my imagination
Since the day I was able to draw, I kept on putting what I have in mind on paper: concepts, characters, locations, landscapes, objects, etc. Trying to translate thoughts, concepts and ideas into something concrete has always been a personal and exciting challenge of mine. It can be as simple as sketching with a pen, or as complex as painting an entire scene digitally.
Although I do enjoy trying different techniques, my style can be defined as mainly cartoon with a preference for cel shading and colouring. I tend to keep my illustration as simple as possible to get to the point, but I can be as detailed as needed. Here is a selection of drawings, sketches, doodles and finished digital pieces:
For the previous version of my web portfolio, I wanted to build an interactive map of an imaginary world, making parts of it clickable and unveiling new content, exactly like in a video game. To do so, I created the entire map using one of my favourite technique/style: isometric design.
Gine, Auber Gine
One of my craziest ideas was to imagine “Gine, Auber Gine”, a parody of the old James Bond films starring anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables as secret agents, instead of human beings. It was supposed to be a series of three webcomics following the missions of agent Gine.
The plot goes like this: “The renown agent Auber Gine is sent to the Neutra Confederacy to investigate the sudden disappearance of Doctor Tomatra, an eminent geneticist and nutritionist who was working on a major top-secret project financed by the Vatle government, and to prevent an open conflict with the neighbour country of Utrif”. Here are some promotional pieces and concepts:
