Happy sankta Lucia, Because this day is a reminder that even though it doesn’t look like it, the future is the promise of brighter things to come. Well to me, tomorrow will be about one such wonder anyway.

Portraits : Beatrix

This drawing is based on a sculpture by Joseph Hugues Fabisch which is visible at the Fine Arts Museum in Lyon. It might be my favorite piece here.

Portraits : Sanguine – Humors 3/4

A long time ago I painted 4 self-portraits based on the concept of Hippocratic humors. Recently I wanted to revisit the concept by adding some personal symbolism.

Here is the sanguine part of me.

Beauty is harmony, passion is intertwining and great things hide in those details.

Portraits : Choleric – Humors 2/4

A long time ago I painted 4 self-portraits based on the concept of Hippocratic humors. Recently I wanted to revisit the concept by adding some personal symbolism.

Here is the Bilious part of me.

I’m not very prone to anger or aggressiveness so there must be something boiling inside right ? A storm inside maybe ? Or I could just be incredibly calm and contemplative…

Portraits : Melancholy – Humors 1/4

A long time ago I painted 4 self-portraits based on the concept of Hippocratic humors. Recently I wanted to revisit the concept by adding some personal symbolism (that I won’t explain).

Here is the melancholic part of me

Portraits : Spawn 2

A friend of mine wanted me to paint him portraits of godlike superheroes, this is one of my propositions sketches. Spawn is the one I had to do : He is one of my all time favorite “heroes. I love the dark and mature tone together with the critical point of view on society.

Portraits : Random reflections

While trying to draw faces, I often find myself in need of a model. Now my sketchbooks are filled with unknown persons who had expressions which attracted my sight. It’s amusing to think that I don’t know anything about them but I might be the only person in the world to notice that moment when this girl seemed lost in her mind looking at the horizon scrolling on the other side of the windows.

Portraits : Friendly faces

While trying my best to draw portraits I sometimes use familiar faces as models…
Sorry for them

Portraits : Let’s start from the beginning

Still trying to get better at faces (spoiler alert : it’s not really working).
since I have some troubles with the position of the different parts of the face I tried to think about what they are on.

Portraits : Perceptions…

Experimenting on auto-portraits, I can clearly see how the fabric of reality distorts around our egos.

When drawing ,it’s even harder to be fair with ourselves than with others since it’s so easy to be obsessed by every imperfection. So when you have serious hang-ups your all perception of yourself can start turning around those specific points…

…And then you don’t even remember how real or unreal is the way you see yourself.
