It’s been a couple of days that Ballerina is out in theatre in Europe. I’m really proud of the work that all the team put into this project, those two years creating environments, props, colorkeys and characters have been among the most challenging yet rewarding of my career. I highly recommend to give a shot to the movie, there is a lot of love and hardwork behind it and I assure you that you will have a good time ! Here are a couple of artworks I did for the project.
Designing Eiffel’s studio for Ballerina, was the environment I had the more fun doing on the show.Having the possibility to dig into the mind of this great inventor, and coming up with crazy machines was absolutely amazing.Here is the final version of the workshop (after dozen of iterations), I hope you like the final result in the movie !
Working on the Eiffel Tower was one of those little moments of pride for a french guy living in Canada. I tried to revive all the memories from the time I lived there and what I liked so much about the atmosphere of the city. Going back for holidays, it will be the time to have a good look again !
Here is my first watercolor process video. It’s far
from perfect (sorry for my big head poping and all the skecthbook moves)
but it can give a glimpse of how I proceed regarding watercolor, and
hopefully help some of you.
At the very begining of the process I took a picture of the drawing that
I put aside, because as I begin to paint, it tend to completely cover
the drawing and it’s sometimes very hard to figure out where the lines
were at first.
The picture on my phone is a guide all along the process.

One of the thing I like the most to draw while working on productions are isometric plans. I guess I always like miniature stuff and picturing every tiny objects as something really thrilling to me !
Une des choses que j’aime le plus dessiner quand je travaille sur une production c’est la possibilité de faire des plans isométriques. Créer chaque petit objet, chaque recoin , à quelque chose de vraiment fascinant !
I spend a lot of time on watercolor these days. I found that it’s really relaxing and a cool technique to use. Also the ability of doing a bit of colors without being stuck behind a computer screen is a blessing.
Wobbish question’s is the occasion for me to share you the tools I use for doing those . :)
