the old town

Post by campy22 » Thu Aug 24, 2006 8:06 am

A little experiment I tried.
I took a paper sketch and used both photoshop and flash to do this.

It's interesting and fascinating what You can come upwhen blending techniques.

More to come( i hope!) with this method.

Cool! I thought you had used that way to do it before.. I think it´s great how you have done it so I hope you continue it! Also nice to see how they take it when a boat drives to town. :lol:

I absolutely dig the sketchy, yet detailed style you have. I just drop my head into my hand and get this goofy smile on my face whenever I look at your drawings/illustrations, Pascal. It takes me several minutes to get through them, but the good feeling is there instantly. (:
I love the almost invisible birds in the tree! :D

Very nice sketch...so loose and flowing-like a bowel movement.
Kidding!
I really enjoy your work, my friend.

nice experiment Pascal. but i had trouble spotting the boat actually. i noticed it only after reading Blom's comment. but maybe it's me and not the piece: i log onto the Flight forum from work and i don't have much time to linger on every posting. so... my bad.
that's also why i save all of your drawings, so i can enjoy them back home :)

Oh..Elisio..
the boat wasn't meant to be the prominent thing.
I wanted to focus on the epicerie part.

I'm tryingto find that way of communicating somethinge absolutely extraordinary to the outside viewer( us) , in a very "barely out of the ordinary" way.

Does that make any sense?

If it doesn't , it's probably because I haven't put my finger quite on it just yet..
but i'll get there.... eventually!

Well, I think I get it, on a Pascal illustration you have to look at everything,... twice. And after having dreamt about what you saw then you wake the next morning thinking "Ah-hAAA!" AND then you smile all the way to something.... or something.. :roll:

I actually saw the boat because I was wondering why there was a gathering of people. :)

Looks fantastic, as usual.

Always a pleasure to drop by and check your new art posts. I love that sketchier look just as much as your usual pieces.

Neat composition. It makes me think of French comics, which are my favorites in general.

Keep em coming.
