2020 Italian Grand Prix
Published by Suisei at 21/09/2020 à 15h45
Hi every one!
Do you remember the Formula 1 illustrations in progress that I published at the beginning of the summer?
Well I just finished one of them, the one that paid tribute to the first podium of Pierre Gasly at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2019. :D
There has been a change since then and I had to redo a good part of the illustration: the cars and the colors.
Do you know why?
Pierre Gasly won his very first victory in Grand Prix 2 weeks ago! \o/
It's really great to see all his efforts rewarded after struggling at RedBull and fighting to prove his worth on the track.
What's more, it's been 24 years since any Frenchman has won a F1 Grand Prix. Imagine what a party it was like among the Canal+ commentators. x)
Especially since every time Gasly manages to slip onto the podium with his midfield car, it is at the end of battles at the pace of David against Goliath.
The sportsmanship of the other drivers was also beautiful to see, all congratulated him and seemed happy that he could count on a first victory in his career. Carlos Sainz seemed less enthusiastic at the end of the race, but it is understandable that he feels a little frustrated to have just missed out on his first win. One more lap and he would be the winner. In any case, he had a great race too. =)
Well! Contrary to what the announced domination of Mercedes let think, we are not bored in F1 this year. x)
I also went back to the code of the web comics platform project that I had briefly mentioned a while ago. I'll tell you all about it again one of these days.
That's all for today.
Have a nice week and see you soon! :D

Formula 1 illustrations on Twitch
Published by Suisei at 09/07/2020 à 15h45
Today I come to propose you a live drawing session on Twitch. It will take place on Sunday 12 July from 2 pm.
During this session I will finish colors of these illustrations.
I had fun imagining a Capsule Corp. (Dragon Ball) Formula 1 team. Note that Akira Toriyama himself a F1 fan had made several illustrations with his characters at the wheel of a McLaren of the Prost/Senna era. =D
This second illustration is a tribute to the first podium won by Pierre Gasly at the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix at the end of a crazy race.
There, I had warned that I would come back with this subject. x)
Note that the date and time of the stream is not random. Indeed, it will take place during the next Formula 1 Grand Prix, the second Austrian Grand Prix renamed Styrian Grand Prix! =D
I'm going to put the Grand Prix as a thumbnail in a corner of the stream to accompany the drawing session and I propose you to join me on the vocal of Discord to comment the race, chat and laugh.
I will surely trigger some wild lives before to do some tests during free practice or qualifying. x)
Otherwise, for those waiting for the comic book Tarkhan Skullkiller impatiently, I will send it to print at the end of this weekend, after receiving the last fanarts for the gallery at the end of the comic book. =D
That's all for today.
Have a nice day and see you on Sunday! :D
Drink'N'Draw on Twitch !
Published by Suisei at 19/05/2020 à 15h45
A few weeks have passed since my last post, so some new sessions of Drink'N'Draw online too!
So I post here our collective participations, always made on Aggie.io. :)
Let's start with the theme of April 22th: cars.
And here's the zoom on my performance.
So for those who didn't know, I take this opportunity to reveal an old passion that resurfaced during the year 2019 thanks to a buddy: Formula 1.
I'll talk about that again in the future. :p
Here, I illustrated the reigning world champion: Lewis Hamilton who races for Mercedes.
I've planned two more illustrations on the same theme. They are in progress, but as they are a bit ambitious and as I don't want to delay Tarkhan Skullkiller more, it is taking time.
Then, the theme of April 29th was dedicated to a crossover comics between Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
As our dear friend JD has bathe us a little (let's call a spade a spade :p ) with his theme, we kind of sabotaged it. =D
A little zoom on my... performance...
I wanted to do something completely ridiculous, so I drew Rita, the very first vilain in Power Rangers series with a turtle shell. If someone had told me that one day I would draw that character...
Then comes the theme of May 6th: Tales of Zestiria. If I understood everything correctly, it's an anime from the video game series Tales of.
Here is a little zoom in on my illustration.
Not much to say this time. We don't know enough about this theme and we've stayed nice.
I'm pretty happy with the colors I made.
And finally, last week's theme: Ellen Ripley from Alien.
As there were more of us this time, we had to work on 2 different files.
This time I tried a new range of colours for a completely different atmosphere.
That's all for this time.
Next Wednesday (May 20) we will address a theme that is dear to my heart.
Knights of the Zodiac !!!
More precisely, we will linger on the 5 five bronze knights who lost the galactic tournament at the beginning of the manga, namely Jabu the Unicorn, Geki the Bear, Ichi the Hydra, Ban the Little Lion and finally Nachi the Wolf!
As usual, we will meet from 8pm in audio conference on Discord and we will draw on Aggie.io.
This time we'll try something new. For those who don't plan to draw but still want to watch, we will broadcast the drawing session on Twitch. As this is a test, to start with we'll do it on my own channel.
That's all for today.
If you feel like coming to draw with us, the doors are open to everyone! :)
Have a nice week and see you soon!
Confined Drink'N'Draw Paris
Published by Suisei at 19/04/2020 à 15h45
Lately I was thinking it might be nice to post my illustrations in the news feed like I used to do on my old blog before the social networks period.
Then let's go! :)
With the friends from the Drink'N'Draw Paris we found a solution to continue to meet on Wednesday evening and draw together.
This is a web application named Aggie.io. It is free and surprisingly powerful. It supports pressure sensitivity of some graphic tablets with some web browsers (updated web browsers of course).
The main interest of this application is that you can draw online with several people on the same file. To do this, just click on Start drawing and share the url on which you are redirected.
We have already done 2 drawing sessions with this application by meeting on Discord to chat in voice at the same time.
Here is the first one of which initial theme was the game Wakfu, but we were a bit undisciplined. x)
It was really a test session.
And this week's session we lined up a little more and we drew each in his/her dedicated area. x)
The theme was Angela, a comic book character created, among others, by Todd McFarlane and later bought by Marvel.
Everyone has interpreted the old cliché of bikini armour in their own way. For my part I went into something looking like Saint Seiya. No, I will not be changed. x)
That's all for today.
Next week, the theme will be cars (not the movie, real cars). I have a few ideas that should be fun to draw. :)
Have a nice week and see you soon!
Tarkhan's progress and coloring of a DBM illustration on Twitch
Published by Suisei at 09/10/2019 à 15h45
Progress of the Tarkhan Skullkiller comic book
The inking of the comic strip Tarkhan Skullkiller progress slowly, but surely.
I'm finishing a series of pages full of backgrounds and enemy armies and then I begin to ink the final battle of the adventure.
After the one I'm showing you here, I still have 14 more to ink.
As usual, I took care to update the progress bars on the Ulule page.
WIP of the page number 53.
Having been a little hasty, I realize that I will be able to organize an architectural errors hunt when the book is published. x)
So, as I am a little late, if there are any among you, dear friends/readers/contributors, who want to propose fanarts to make a collection at the end of the comic book, our messenger services are always open! :D
To inspire you, the presentation of the characters is always available on Ulule and the beginning of the comic is freely readable here.
Our friend Kapalsky offered us a great illustration that captures the personality of our two heroes! =D
Colouring a Dragon Ball Multiverse illustration on Twitch
Last Sunday I participated in the animation of the Dragon Ball Multiverse stand in Paris Manga by making drawings for readers and fans.
Between the visitors' requests, I have inked the following illustration.
The confrontation between Vegeta and Cell is announced in the tournament table that you can consult on the DBM website and I can tell you that the fangirl that I am of these two characters is looking forward to read this duel. :D
I have planned to make a color version and I propose you to do it tomorrow (Thursday, October 10) live on Twitch from 6:30 PM ! :D
Now I get back to my inking work and wish you a nice day.
See you soon!

Illustrations of February 2019
Published by Suisei at 18/03/2019 à 15h45
I'm very late but the illustrations of the month for Tipeee and Patreon are finally ready! :D
Here is what the February patrons who chose the HD Pack reward or more will soon receive.
This month, the NSFW illustration will be in colour and the G-rated illustration in black and white.
G-rated illustration: Freezer! I drew him on the Dragon Ball Multiverse stand during the last Paris Manga session.
NSFW illustration: A little random anatomy exercise.
The HD scan of the G-rated illustration will be delivered to all patrons who have chosen the reward HD Pack or more. The NSFW illustration in HD and uncensored will be delivered to all patrons who have chosen a reward labeled NSFW.
A6 ex-libris and holocards of these illustration will be delivered to the patrons depending on whether they have chosen the reward Little collector or The 90's kid, NSFW or not.
Well, since I delivered the illustrations late, I owe you some explanations.
Nothing bad happened, on the contrary, I'm finishing a lot of cool things for your pleasure. :p
During the month of February, I programmed a lot.
I have developed a lot of things to improve your comic reading experience on the website suiseipark.com such as the subscription system to the comics that I told you about in February.
It's invisible to you, but I've also developed a whole lot of tools to allow me to be more productive in the future.
Last November I said I was working on something.
As it takes a lot of time I stop to making you wait.
I am finishing my special chapter for Dragon Ball Multiverse. For those who don't know, this is a huge collective fan-manga about Dragon Ball that takes place after the end of DBZ.
Read it. You will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of this amateur comic. =)
The chapter I'm working on is graphically ambitious and therefore requires a lot of work, but it will be for your viewing pleasure! =)
I also take a course about making black and white illustrations led by the great Alberto Varanda ! =D
And I'm learning a lot of new things! =D
So I have homework to do that requires time too.
I explain to you what this is all about.
The course takes 3 months during which we have to finish a complete illustration. During the course, we study all the steps to create and finalize the illustration, from the pencil step to the inking step.
During the first classes we learned a method of building and correcting our illustration with tracing paper. It's like using Photoshop, but by hand.
The course ends in April, this gives you an overview of one of the illustrations I will give you that month. =)
That’s all for today.
Have a nice day and see you soon !
