What I like drawing the most

I love doing 2D Animation !

But before animating, I need to create good characters. And the best way to do so is to train by sketching people I know, I meet or just see. It's not easy actually, and I don't always have time for that. But I know I'm getting better and better every year. I love studying people's faces (Sorry), drawing them and making caricatures.

Some sketches I made, among many others

Some drawings
I do a lot of Fan Art, as celebrities are a big part of my life. They inspire me so much!
Here are Brooke Elliott, little Miley Cyrus, Blanda Eggenschwiler and Nick Jonas.
I try several technics like pencil, charcoal or pastels.

Let me introduce you to my little sister, my grandfather and one of my best friends.

As I start making caricatures, I'd rather draw celebrities. They don't know me so they can't complain. Haha
Here are Elvis Presley, Amy Winehouse, Madison Delagarza and April Bowlby.

I currently am working on a Portfolio full of portraits and caricatures I want to finish before school starts again.

If you have any suggestion of people easy to caricature, don't hesitate to tell me!

The Book Of Us

I currently am working, among many other things, on a project I started two years ago. Let me explain to you.
Five years ago, I started playing the guitar on my own. I mainly listened to the Jonas Brothers songs at that time and they made me want to play them. The boys were so inspirational and they still are! So I searched for tabs and learned chords. Six months later, I could sing while playing. And one year later, I wrote my first song called “Prayer To My Guardian Angel”.

Three years later, about 20 songs have been made, about 20 more texts written. What inspired me? What I went through, the people I met, the things I've done. And I plan on doing it all my life.

The point is among all those texts, 14 are about one particular person. So I decided two years ago to gather them all to make a little songbook, something I could read in the future and remember what made me a stronger person. I just didn't know how to make a book. It sounded so complicated. And last year, some of my classmates had to make an actual one. This was my chance! I watched them and asked them questions. It's still complicated, but I know I can do it! My aim is not to release it. I just want to have some of my memories written down, and also be sure that I'm doing, and later that I did, something I can show.

Here's a preview of the design of the book.

It won't be a big book, I though 11x11cm would be enough. Not sure the texts will be readable though.

Here are some lyrics that will appear in the book.

This is a TV show
Here's something exciting to follow
Here's the perfect combo
 - TV Show

We were both attracted by some wonderful lines
But we needed to let our thoughts go even more
We would write them all down till the end of the night
No secret, that's what we swore
 - The Book Of Us

He could make you feel guilty
Fot not being what he wants you to be
 - Mister Pride

Oh, you Devil
This is so wicked
How you reach your goal
 - Devil Is Back

We sank into darkness
Because of your selfishness
The sun ran away
And there is nothing to say
 - Shadows In The Wind

As my tears dry
I guess you expected no goodbye
 - Life Is A Risk

I don't want to survive
I just wanna live my life
 - Alive

What do you think? Would you like to see the final book?
Have you ever heard a song of mine? Did you like it?
I hope so!

Before This Blog...

As I said, I'll be posting new stuff from now on (drawings, animation movies, music...).
So if you want to see my previous works (Character Design, 2D animation movies, 3D modeling, paintings, pastels, charcoal drawings...), click on the link below :

All About Working !

I've been told yesterday that I graduated my 4th year at Emile Cohl. What does it means? So many things to me!

- five years of Art training completed
- preparing my diploma
- building a good portfolio
- having the opportunity to make my dreams come true

So much more pressure, though so much less pressure. Incomprehensible? Well, I understand this sentence Haha.

Now it's time to work harder than ever!
Ten days ago, I started my first internship in a web-marketing firm called Kubiweb as a web-designer. I'll be there for nine weeks and everything's going on well. The bosses are great to me and it seems like I make a pretty good job for a novice. 

During those days at the office, I don't work for the firm only. I also work for myself on my lunch breaks. I start my website over, I draw for my portfolio, I make 2D animations, I work on my diploma, and a side project... I never get bored. It's all good, I love what I do. No holidays this year. Maybe two days in Paris, and two days more in Disneyland (Oh yeah!).

I hope to post lots of things before school starts again on September.

Stay tuned!

This Is Me...

First of all, you're, of course, allowed to know who I am.

There's a sentence I love which describes me very well (okay, I admit it, I made it).
« I'm a dreamer who doesn't live in this world but who still loves this life. »

As Adam Young sings it : 
« Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there. » (- The Real World

(You need to go check his inspirational blog RIGHT NOW!)

What would life be without dreams? To me, absolutely useless. I know some of you might think that dreams can't become true, but they're actual goals! They help move forward. They keep a smile on someone's face. Oh Gosh, don't let me start on this subject...

So, now you know I'm a dreamer. Which means I need to travel a lot. Though I don't often have the opportunity to do so. I can't complain, I'm 21, and I've been to London, Namur, Antwerp, Geneva, Madrid... And the most wonderful place in the world : The United States of America! New York, Washington, Philadelphia... The best trip of my life!
I fell in love with this country at around 8 and I made a promise to myself that someday, I'd settle there, work there and maybe build a family there. This is my ultimate goal and I'll do everything to reach it.

Oh yes! I also believe in spirits, and I do think I have a guardian angel. Hence the first song I « released » on Youtube called « Prayer To My Guardian Angel ». I know HE's always with me, he helps me everyday. Just like Simba and Kiara, we are one. (Yes, The Lion King is my favorite movie of all time.)

Speaking about The Lion King, I'm a huge fan of Walt Disney and his work. I grew up with his philosophy and got passionate by 2D Animation. That's why I currently am studying in the French Art school Emile Cohl. I want to be a 2D or 3D animator. I dream of joining the Walt Disney Studios someday (Poor manpower resources director Haha).

I revealed that I post songs on Youtube above. Yes, I do! 14 songs have been posted so far Want to listen to them? Have you been nice enough? Well okay, here they are ==> http://youtube.com/JessyMegan). In 4 years, it's not a lot. Sorry, I work hard for my school. Even though I love making music, I still believe there are priorities in life. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't live without music. I can't spend a day without listening to my favorite songs. My MP4 player is my best friend.
What do I listen to?
Jonas Brothers . Adam Young (Owl City, Port Blue, Sky Sailing) . Omarion . Taylor Swift . Michael Jackson . Elvis Presley . Shania Twain . Britney Spears
I'm a fan of the first three artists. I've seen the Jonas Brothers and Omarion live once, Nick Jonas once more, and I'm just getting started. I also want to enter Adam Young's world at least once in my life. It is so dreamy to me!

Wow! I write a lot! I guess I'll stop right now. If you have any question, just go to the comment section and I'll answer it no matter what.

See you soon!
