c'est incroyable, cette toile sait capter beaucoup d'émotions, de sensations, comme si l'on pouvait "toucher" la toile. Sans compter que le jeu de lumière sur le drap est incroyable,san compter le réaliste qui ressort dans cette toile, j'ai du mal à mettre des mots sur ce que je ressens, en tous les cas bravo Christophe, votre talent est à envier !! Quel don !

how...every word i want to use i cant spell lol. so im gonna have to use these words that just dont express what i want to say. this is a beautiful, delicate piece of art, you are extremely talented and i wish i could draw like you someday!

Thank you for the nice words, Melissa.
Unfortunately, no I don't have step by step tutorials for lighting. I learned mostly from the older Disney people I was working with who were from the "old school" of painting.
Maybe I would consider something like that later though, as you are not the first one to ask me this question.
A man asked me the other day if I would consider making a video on how I paint, and I'm not against the idea. So, who knows...

Wow. The detail and lighting you have achieved is nothing less than stunning. The crinkles in the sheet are very real...very tactile. And the petals--either floating or still falling-- are very subtle. Very nice use of soft colors without muting one another.

Oh, this is gorgeous...

Great work! Very good design as well!

Ok I lied I will post some comments on your work! When I first saw this my jaw almost hit my keyboard. I just got lost on how well rendered the cloth was. You wouldn't by any chance have step by step tutorials on how to paint lighting would you?

This painting is simply astounding. The lighting is so beautiful on the sheet, which, as everyone else has already said, is the most amazing part of the painting. Her face is so peaceful and lifelike, it just captures my imagination. Also, the detail on the floor is beautiful. A gorgeous piece of work.

vacher's picture

Merci, Patrick.
Et merci pour le tuyeau.
Au fait, j'ai vu ton travail: très intéressant, bravo.

vacher's picture

Thank you, Cynthia.
These days, I'm very interested in working on drapes and sheets. The way the light can work on it , with very subtle warms and cools can be REALLY hard to render. But I'm really happy when I get something satisfying.

ha deja la:))

a peine arrive et deja un editors pick, bravo (et merité).

Guest's picture

Masterful work, Christophe! The visual sweep you've created with the background to the sheet to the arm is so very effective. I agree with Socar..the sheet is astounding! The lighting is wondrous as well. So very lovely!!!!

Guest's picture

I'm especially impressed by the lighting detail that comes out in your work. This one is enthralling! Has she just fallen? A few of the rose petals seem to have shadows beneath them, as if they are just now settling down on her. Intriguing piece, beautifully done.

Indeed, it's awesome. And the sheet with the two kind of lights looks great.
