Post by Skip » Sun Feb 01, 2009 11:08 am

Greetings everyone, Im Gauthier. (26j ,from Belgium)

I finally decided to share my work on a forum,
came across Flight trough the Flight Cover art wich is absolutely wonderfull,it was a few weeks ago when I was myself drawing little characters on giant birds,and so obviousely my interest in Flight grew.

MAIN reason Im here is because;
-Im having the opportunity to do a comic,and to publish it in parts in a Belgian comic-book magazine (Plots-Magazine)...when readdy offcourse.
-I alreaddy have a verry strong base for a story and universe wich ill post in the future.
-But I wanted to start with some older stuff....my story tries to combine a fair amount of elements and ideas ill post here.
-All in all,I'd like to get more involved in this world of online illustrations/comics. (Im actually more into music at this time and ,like to maintain my other passion.)

I thought Idd start with some subject-diversity but with the same technique used.Yes the ballpoint.
Any comment is welcome,honesty is well apreciated
(please excuse my spelling mistakes)

This is from 2001(while still at school), when robots werent THAT maenstream...notice the 2 characters discovering the robot.Whitened the top for extra perspective.

This one is on a 37 on 90 centimeters wooden board.Dont really know how this came about,I just like the quiet strange organic atmosphere.
Image

Im crazy about treehouses ,got a whole series of those.
This atmosphere is extremely appealing to me, and Im planning on using it in my comic-concept...to be continued.

Hello, and welcome to this forum! I am happy that you decided to start posting on the Flight forum. I think as an illustrator it is a great place to be connected both to find advice and feedback, and to find inspiration, friends and people to collaborate with. :D SO welcome, hope you find much joy and inspiration here.

Your ballpoint art is something different than what I normaly see on this forum, and that is great. You also got a nice line and design. So I for one is looking forward to see what more you got to post.

Ball point pen is a rare art form, nice to see something new in that department. The last one the alien-like-micro-organix image is great, It reminds me of a great Flight artist M. Gagne, www.gagneint.com

Good luck with the comic and looking forward to see more. ;)

A remake of a small drawing on a big board (100 to 110 cm)
Replaced the ballpoint with a black alcohol marker.

The detail is scary amazing on the robot DJ...but they're all really good, especially the twisty design and the little hut in the trees.
