    and a bonus (because I couldn’t help playing it …)

#Alea's talking 
Anonyme a demandé: Hi, I read "Alea comes from the saying : “Alea jacta est” ” the die is cast”" in your FAQ and thought "die" had to be a typo. Have a nice day.


I suppose there are  some typos in this faq (as I said, English isn’t my mothertongue and I was better in math and sciences than in languages) but for once this is not really a typo! (I checked…)

In modern standard English, the singular die(rather than dice) is uncommon. Dice is used for both the singular and the plural.

Middle English: from Old French de, from Latindatum ’something given or played’, neuter past participle of dare.

Thank you for pointing it and for reading the faq.

Pretty much





just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.

I really needed this post


Trying my hand at shoujo always ended in a hilarious disaster.


Jumping on this post as well, because it is important to remember this at times.



13 year old me would be stoked to see where I am now. It’s really good to look back sometimes and appreciate how far you’ve come. And then imagine how much further you can go when you keep drawing.



Even though I want to laugh my head off at my old stuff… it really is important to look at how far you’ve come in time.
And I think it’s not only good for yourself but for young artists / beginners as well, to see how other artists started out. So they see that no one is a great artist right off the bat.



It has already been eight years wow man.

This post gives me so much strength, i love to see everyone’s progress please do it too…




I’m a total sucker for progression things ahh

Drawing can definitely be learnt ! and the 1st rule is  : don’t stop. Results might not show up at once but if you stop there are not going to be any at all.

Some artists sketch their ideas when it comes to start a new illustration. Others write a description or collect references…
We all have different processes that are not even the same for each illustration.

I found this in the folder of an old project.

This was a mood/ambiance note I recorded. Then I started painting … and things got weird  because it ended in a  fanart of Alanna of Trebond.
But at the beginning of this painting there was this short crappy recording !
And I can still see my first idea really clearly in my head -so far from the final result.

In a church near my hometown, Diversion - a cello sextet- performed covers of pop songs and movie soundtracks in a concert.
Check them out !

One of my fav is this cover : No Surprises from Radiohead 

But you might have already heard their cover of Skyfall

I have done a faq/introduction. … Well… I tried !
There are the answers for the main questions I received in my ask box or on livestreams.

If you have other questions, don’t hesitate ?
