So, to get back in touch with colors and textures, I picked up again a series of unfinished drawings (sketches for "animal skittles") to give them a context, a background or a starting point for a story.
However, it's a good feeling to post a little something!
Here (click on the image...), a chicken gather hardening dewdrops to make an egg.
The original myth of the chicken's origin is in popping up...
Recently I really enjoyed using notebook sheets.
For example here (circle on the ground and background), I used Photoshop and applied on the papers: Adjustment / Gradient map (black and white)/ Reverse.
Here is an other part of this illustration, which I put in an other context ... just for the sake of pointing out a personal habit or characteristic of this snail.
I have got one: he keeps his glasses into his shell.
Did you know that snail's eyes are easily drying out. He needs three drops of rain water a day, for taking care of his contact lenses...
All the same, in the past, in situation of very hot weather, he had reluctantly agreed to put his glasses on his antenna.
The snail is clothes conscious.

Introductions are done...
They are part of an illustration for a little girl named Coralie, to be posted soon...
