First of all, a small message who has it importance : 

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! May 2016 be full of creativeness for all of you !
And thanks to all of you for following, you rocks !


I wanted to make some kind of post dedicated to features for so long now... I think it's perfect to begin the year with. So here is a little meme, thanks to Euskelo and UnicatStudio who did it right before me :)


How does it work ? Nothing simplier !

  1. "Leave a comment below and I will pick my top three favourite pieces from your gallery and put the thumbnails below.
  2. Feel free to do the same in your own journal and spread the love.
  3. That is it, really. I just like to list things in threes."


I. RevolvingStone

Shenzhen by RevolvingStone

Ruby Room by RevolvingStone 
Kyoto by RevolvingStone

Great pictures here ! I strive for good composition so those one are the best for me, but also inspire me a lot. The first one "Shenzhen" has a perfect compo, guide the eye without caging it and is also really natural ! 10/10 ! The red one is absolutely hypnotizing, maybe a bit too contrasted but stays captiving. "Kyoto", thanks to the choice of Black & White, is great as well, a peaceful shot ! :)

II. UnicatStudio

Thor - Worthy (digital painting) by UnicatStudio

Erased by UnicatStudio Sunset by UnicatStudio

"Thor" is my absolute favorite here, the chosen pose is great, lines are strong and edges sharp, this portait is also less blurred than the others which is for me a good point : it's painted with confidence and simply it's great art ! "Erased" is great as well : the idea, the mood, the simple composition/layout, the texture and the guys expression, it all works perfectly ! The last one, as a speed painting, shouldn't be judged like the others, but it attracts the eye no matter what, I like it ! :D


III. AgentofMischief

Untitled by AgentofMischief

The Harbinger/Evan Pike Concept design by AgentofMischief  Baby Reaper by AgentofMischief

This first portrait is pretty crazeeeyy! but I would picture it easily in an abstract art gallery ! I'm totally not an expert when it comes to expressionnism and such but this one with its distribution of colours and B&W works well :)
"Baby" Reaper is funny, I like the patterns especially. The last one "The Harbinger" is a good start to character art, colors, so far, are choosed wisely and I can see nice details here and there on the outfit so with proper improvement on the technical side I can see this one become a nice Raven-like character.

IV. Nooknook

Tu veux echanger ? by Nooknook
6 - Artemecia - Leo by Nooknook Le marionnettiste by Nooknook

I really like the first one, colors are bright, more contrasted than the other illustrations and lines are straight. The overall silhouette works well and he is also overly cute :3 ! "Leo", the second picture, has an interesting composition, the idea is great, simple and the illustration "breaaaathe". The last one, finally, is joyful, with some minor adjustments here and there, mostly linked to anatomy, I could see it in a children book without problem :D

V. Euskelo

Lord of Misrule by Euskelo

She Is Next by Euskelo First Light by Euskelo

Well, "Lord of Misrule" makes me happy on every point so it's my number 1 : composition is great, color distribution is nice, that fantasy helm :o, and most of all... this incredible expression full of softness for a warrior ! Some parts of the illustration (back shoulder and back horn ?) might be too bright so it doesn't guide the eye perfectly but I like it anyway ! The second picture "She is Next" really is a personal choice ; it's not the best in term of compo neither from a technical point of view but I've always liked this one for it's simplicity (in the design) ! :) Last one is incredibly realistic and the everyday-life-background is a nice change ! :)

VI. nfouque

witch evolution stage 1 - WIP by nfouque

Along the Edge: winter by nfouque League of Legends: Fear the wild by nfouque

The first illustration is reaaally good, composition is nice, and the pose of this witchy girl is well done. I also like all those blue tones. The second one for "Along the edge", is also a great one, probably the best in term of light, and this painterly style is cool for environments. "Fear the wild", even if older and with a less mastered rendering, attracts the eye a lot, I like the ideas, poses and overall colours :)


VII. Just comment to be next !!! :D

Happy new year à toi aussi!
Are you still doing this ? I think we should have to pick the worst pieces too, it would be more instructive imo... :D
I don't mind a little re-evalution sometime, what do you think ?

Done for you as well ! Thanks for your comment ! :)
Well you know I found your idea interesting and tried to look for the worst in your gallery and... it's was reaallyy hard, more than finding the best. It's easy for the eye to spot harmony (and thumbnails helps a lot in that way), but harder with disharmony I suppose. So honestly I don't know, this meme might not be the solution, people gonna look for your oldest work essentialy and that's all :)

But you wanted a "not good", here's one for me : fav.me/d7etq4s
Fastly : It's an ambitious one, however the result is flat due to the "too much", main characters are great, but are not the main focus, because there's too much details and textures everywhere,  no contrast,.. Composition is also bad (you hit the borders and horizon is probably too low). One simple rule : one (maybe two sometime) focus per illustration, not more ! :) Some details here and there are pretty cool, but if they don't work together.. c'est un flop ! :o

Take that great paladin and put it in another simplier illustration :D
Hope it helps a bit ! :)

Woa!! thanks a lot for your time and advice!
I think your "worst" choice is very accurate and I agree with you on everything.
(well exept about "people will look for oldest works"... your choice is very interesting and helpful for exemple and it's not one of my oldest work ^^)

... now I'll do my best to "spread the love" :D

Tes illus choisies sont ajoutées ! Avec petit commentaire, sur le journal directement.

Je viens de lire ton journal, c'est dommage car je suis dans un groupe de travail sur FB qui fait ça (petits defis etc) mais il y a 25pers. max (pour pouvoir hangout) et ça vient d'être complété :o Dois je te prévenir si ça se libère ? :)

Est-ce que c'est un groupe public ? Je veux dire est-ce qu'on peut voir ce que vous faites que je vois si ça me correspondrait ? ^^
En tout cas c'est super sympa de penser à moi :)


Merci beaucoup pour ton choix d'illustration, c'est super intéressant de voir un avis extérieur sur ce qui plaît et pourquoi :)

Nop, c'est un groupe privé par contre. En ce moment y a pas vraiment de defis et co (mais suffit de proposer, je n'y participe pas perso car jai trop de taff et tout) Sinon c'est juste des hangouts en groupe, la seule règle etant de venir sur hangout en screen share au minimum une fois par mois environ ^^
