Hi,
I am a French artist and traveller, currently living in Australia after 2 years in the USA and 6 months in China.

I work mainly with traditional media (pencil, pen/brush and ink, watercolor and acrylics) and love illustrating Fantasy, Dark/Horror and Sci/Fi universes. The two other main areas of my work are portraits and travel sketches/landscapes.

Commission - character concept 3 by Mourkhayn
Commission - character concept 3
Another concept for one of BugMasterD's characters.

Brief: 
Just a hovering robe. (Hood up, casting shadow over the face.) But where the hands and legs SHOULD be, just put a bunch of tiny, little dots (To signify a swarm of flies. 
Maybe hanging from the robe, show decomposing body part(s). Essentially the food source of the flies.

Pencil on paper, A4 format

Commission - character concept 2 by Mourkhayn
Commission - character concept 2
Another concept for one of BugMasterD's characters.

Brief: 
Another human, one suited up in armor. His helmet would mimic the head of a stag beetle. (Most accurate example would be a male Lucanus Elaphus.) The mandibles, I would like to be shorter, straighter, but still spiky. Roughly about half of the man's height. However, I only want one mandible attached to the helmet, the other to be in his hand. His chest wear to appear as if chainmail-esque,(If could, make look as if bunch of beetle exoskeletons stuck together, like the other commission's sash. But covering his entire upper body.) His gauntlets would seem rather heavier, with small spikes at the knuckles. His greaves also have spikes at the knee covering.

Commission - character concept
A concept for one of BugMasterD's characters.

Brief: 
This man, dressed in typical wanderer clothing. A hood casting a shadow over his mask. His mask, itself is the mimicry of a "Warrior Wasp." A large, torn up coat that reaches down to his knees, with the strings loose(Exposed shirt just generic). (With fur around the neck of his coat.) His pants unable to be seen between boot and the bottom of his tattered coat. And a sash from his right shoulder, to left hip with several, headless beetle exoskeletons hanging from the material.

Skaven Plague Monks by Mourkhayn
Skaven Plague Monks
Second illustration from a series based on the Skavens, from Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy Battles Universe. 

Plague Monks have always been one of my favourite Skaven units. These disease-ridden, tough-as-nails fanatics can eat through units of light infantry with ease. I depicted them fighting a Treeman, since it feels like an excellent enemy for these disciples of decrepitude. I am really happy with the way this image turned out. I think I am starting to get a grasp of how composition works.

I'd love to hear what you think about this one. 

Pencil on paper, A4 format, 6 hours.

Glad to hear things are getting better for you. What was the final verdict about your study units? Have they been validated or will you have to wait for another year or so?

I've only been going on small trips, barely a couple hundred kilometer one way, but it is still quite nice to explore other places!
Do you have plans for these 2 weeks of holidays?

Take care!
