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

Dragon Cat's Galaxia 1/2 - Gonakin

Published by Suisei at 03/09/2020 à 15h45
Updated by Suisei at 03/09/2020 à 19h39

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I gave you news about Dragon Cat's Galaxia 1/2, well let's fix that! :D

Last year was the third edition of the Ki-oon mangaka contest. I participated and, since the rules don't explicitly forbid parody, I decided to play the provocation card by sending them a little Dragon Cat's one-shot.

In spite of the absence of any feedback, I had the satisfaction of succeeding in making a 20-page comic in the space of 10 days, from the first line of script to the coloring of the cover and posting it 15 minutes before the end of the contest. There was a little aspect not quite finished compared to what I usually do (the screentones were missing, the FX and the colors of the cover were flat), but still, it's a not bad performance. I will soon be as fast as I was in my teens. x)

Pages without screentones or FX.

A cover with flat colors, 1h30 watch in hand.

At the beginning of the summer of 2020 the buddy JD came to warn me that the emblematic Japanese magazine of manga prepublication, the Shonen Jump, was opening the hundredth edition of its famous Tezuka contest for the search of young talents internationally! And that Akira Toriyama, the Dragon Ball creator, himself, was part of the jury! :D

The perfect opportunity to send my joke.

So last week I finished the screentones and colors of the cover to participate.
The comic is available in English and Japanese reading way on the website hosting the contest.

I will post it in better resolution and in French as well as in English on my website in the coming days, so feel free to have a look from time to time or simply subscribe to Dragon Cat's here to be notified of the pages publication by email.
I'll take this opportunity to put it back in a western reading way to harmonize with the other episodes of the comic so that you won't get lost when reading it. =)

Looks better when it's finished, doesn't it? x)

I'm planning to print this comic, but 20 pages is pretty thin, so I'm going to combine it with another short (very short) story that I plan to do in the next few months. I can already announce you that it will be entitled The crottin's war!
You're not dreaming, we'll talk about cheese in Dragon Cat's. And good cheese! :p
I will tell you more about this little project later.

Otherwise, for the record, this one-shot, Gonakin, is actually the remake of the Dragon Cat's prototype of which I drew the very first pages in 1998, when I was 12 years old.

Without retouching, it looked like this. The pages were drawn on both sides. It certainly does not make us feel any younger!

This old version is available online here if you enjoy reading it.
I'll have to think about finishing cleaning and posting the rest, it's still fun all this old stuff.

That's all for today!
Have a nice day and see you soon! :D

Tarkhan Skullkiller - rewards sent!

Published by Suisei at 23/07/2020 à 15h45
Updated by Suisei at 23/07/2020 à 10h46

Hi everyone!

Today, I announce that the Tarkhan Skullkiller campain rewards to be delivered by post are all sent! :D

For those who are waiting for their parcels this way, it's time to keep an eye on your mailbox. You should receive it within a few days. ^^
When you receive it, don't hesitate to let me know by a private message, an email, or on Discord, with a picture of your acquisitions if you want.

About the friends from Drink'N'Draw Paris, as the bar still hasn't opened, we'll find a solution to meet when I come back from holidays to deliver the rewards to you. In the meantime, your rewards are waiting in the warmth of my home. :)

Speaking of vacations, I warn you that I'm leaving from July 25 to August 10 in a hole with no Internet or phone network. I will therefore be unreachable during this period and I will not be able to process any order placed on the store until I return.

It's still the same lake and the same forest. It's nice to be in this little corner of nature. :)

That's all for the news.
Have a nice week-end and see you soon! =)

Hello everyone!

I've got some big news for you. The comic books of Tarkhan Skullkiller have arrived! :D

And don't forget the fanarts gallery at the end!

So all I have to do now is draw the signed sketches and send the rewards! The comic will soon be in your hands! :D
I will give priority to the rewards that will have to be sent by la Poste. I will manage to send them before I go on holiday. As for the rewards to be hand delivered to the friends of Drink'N'Draw Paris we'll see on my return if the bar has reopened. If not, we'll find an alternative solution.

Other news, I opened a fanarts gallery on the Tarkhan Skullkiller's website, so you can find the illustrations of the Drink'N'Draw Paris friends. If you want to publish a fanart here, it's always possible, just contact Suisei through contact form or on Discord.

To view this gallery when you are on the Tarkhan Skullkiller's website, just open the Illustrations menu and click on Fanarts.

I also took the opportunity to open a gallery gathering our illustrations, those of Marialexie and mine, available at this page. This gallery is also accessible through the Illustrations menu.

That's all for today.
Have a nice Sunday and see you soon! =)

Formula 1 illustrations on Twitch

Published by Suisei at 09/07/2020 à 15h45

Hi everyone!

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
