Mon Voisin Totoro

Hi gang !

Here’s my modest contribution to the Totoro Forest Project.  I feel very humble to be part of it. A combo of acrylic, coffee and photosho… Plus Tibetan music score [thank you, Dave, you'll know why]. ;)

And a picture made last fall, selected for the French artbook, Café-salé. Acrylic and coffee mix, plus photography and photoshop.

And for finish, some personal stuff:

Hope all is well for you guys,

from France with Love.

    @ Daniol: Merci ! Un jour j’essaierai de faire une illu avec une meilleure hiérarchie dans la texture. Là c’est tout crado, mais c’est parce que je le vaut bien ! ^^

    @ Pat: Same about your art, buddy. ;)

    @ Scott: I will stay healthy, don’t worry… About me watching Porn… That’s science-fiction, pure and simple. Thanks for the good laugh… And for the nice words, warmed my heart. ^^

    @ Koppa: Thanks, sir. ^^

    @ Chupa-chupa: Thanks, amigo. You did some great stuff lately, keep posting the magic. ;)

    Is the last one painted or photo?
    I am confused!
    It’s lovely though, it makes me dream away.

    Your art is very personal and strong, I can spot them in a crowd of thousand.


  8. Great Julien. Always loved the Cat one. :)

    Björn, this is photography only. I just play with crappy settings in late evening wishing I will reach that particular render [And I did it ! YAY ! :P]. Subject was great by the way. It’s just a few fossils-roots in some medieval wall… Just a few minutes from my house…
    And I noticed it just that day. :P
    Yup, no Photoshop tricks on the shot itself, aside a few settings [saturation/hue].

    “Your art is very personal and strong, I can spot them in a crowd of thousand.”
    Best compliment I had in ages, warmed my tiny heart… Specially coming from a badass like you !
