About Me

How old are you and how did you learned to draw ?

I’m 19 years old and I draw since I can hold a pen ! At the age of 10, I already knew that I wanted to be an artist so I started drawing even more ! I joined an art school when I was 14 but after only a few months, I realized that I learned a way better by myself. So I left the school and until now, I learn drawing at home by watching video tutorials, reading artbooks and most importantly : drawing everyday !

You can check my Improvement Meme for more details.

What tools or programs do you use ?

I make my digital artworks on a Wacom Cintiq 13HD tablet with Corel Painter (for drawing & painting) and Photoshop (for color adjustments & effects). I use the basic Corel Painter brushes and I usually work with a 5000x6000px canvas.

If you want to learn more about my settings and process, check my video tutorial.

Do you take commissions ?

No, I don’t take commissions. I really want to put all my time into my personal illustrations and my animated comic.

How long does it take you to finish an artwork ?

It depends of the number of characters, the amount of details and if I’m struggling a lot or not so much ! So it’s from 6 to 18 hours (I’m so slow !).

What inspires you ?

Video games and animes are my main sources of inspiration but I also get inspired by photography, 3d artworks, fashion or little moments in life.

Special mentions to : 

  • Code lyoko, the TV show who motivated me to draw a lot when I was a kid.
  • Mirror’s Edge, the game who inspires me the most in term of colors and architecture (and Faith is so pretty !).
  • Your Name, the animated movie who made me want to tell stories and improve my art skills even more !

Who are your favourite artists ?

I usually fall in love with one artwork in particular, not the whole gallery of an artist but I still have favourites : Artgerm, Ilya Kuvshinov, Elliot Gaudard (I started drawing digitally thanks to his artworks and videos back in 2014 !), Sciamano240, WLOP, Tamaki, Ekakijin, GUWEIZ and myself (just kidding !).

What are your favourite video games ?

It’s hard to choose only a few : Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mario Kart : Double Dash !!, Celeste, Super Mario 3D World, Overwatch, Super Meat Boy, Life is Strange, Zelda : Twilight Princess and Breath of the Wild…

What are your favourite animes ?

I haven’t seen a lot of animes (what a shame !) but here are my favourites : Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!, Seishun Buta Yarou, K-On! and F-Zero Falcon Densetsu. You can also check my Anime List !

What are your favourite japanese animated movies ?

Your Name, Weathering with You, Seishun Buta Yarou (the movie), From Up on Poppy Hill, When Marnie Was There and The Garden of Words.

Do you listen to music or podcats while drawing ?

I don’t listen to podcats but I just can’t draw without music ! And because I draw for hours everyday, I listen to A LOT of music ! You can take a look at my YouTube playlist.
