Fridemann Allmenroeder (Motivarti mentee, 2015 Spring)

Last Spring was my first experience as a mentor through the Motivarti program (www.motivarti.org).
I was very happy of the choice I made with mi first mentee, Friedemann Allmenroeder, from Germany. Friedemann had a very precise project he wanted me to help him with and it was a real pleasure to advise him the best I could to achieve his goal. We obviously talked a lot about drawing, composition, color and design but also about references, inspiration and presentation. Friedemann was open-minded and very responsive, it was a real pleasure to work with him.
I am really proud of the result he ended up with, make sure to check his portfolio (http://www.allmenroeder.com/) and to follow his evolution on tumblr (http://flasc.tumblr.com/) !

Crobards parisiens / Paris sketches

Quelques croquis réalisés récemment à Paris et dans ses environs. Hormis les toits de Bourg la Reine et la Mairie d’Asnières sur Seine, il s’agit principalement du quartier de Passy dans le 16ème arrondissement, que j’ai eu l’occasion de découvrir pour la première fois. Tous les dessins sont realisés au crayon avant un passage au marqueur gris.

A few recent sketches from Paris and its surroundings. Except the roof view, they were all done in the Passy area (16th arrondissement). They are all sketched in pencil and shaded with a basic marker. I thought about sketching them with a ballpoint pen before the shading but unfortunately the ballpoint ink smudges instantly.
Thanks James Paick for offering me the Cottonwood sketchbook, it is a really nice one !

I rarely post color studies but I like this one. It is based on a series of sketches I did a while ago. Which one is your favorite ?

Je poste rarement des essais de couleur mais, une fois n’étant pas coutume, en voici un exemple. Lequel est votre préféré ? Ils sont tous bases sur une série de croquis réalisés il y a un moment.
