Loïc says that, as a fledg­ling artist, you don’t need to have mas­tered your tools to ex­press yourself. You should start cre­at­ing and ex­plor­ing the things you’re pas­sion­ate about, and you’ll hone your tech­nique as you go.

“The process,” Loïc says, “of cre­at­ing a pre­cise im­age of a world in my head and then find­ing the tech­niques to re­alise it is, to me, thrilling.”

The Paris-based con­cept artist and an­i­ma­tor learned this first-hand while work­ing on his own short film Space Cat Hob – a process of trial and er­ror. “This is the best way to learn,” he says, “by be­ing ex­ited about a project, be­liev­ing in it and build­ing it one brick at a time.”

1 Blades city “A quick con­cept – based on a pen­cil sketch done on the train – for my short film Space Cat Hob. I pre­fer to look for ideas on paper, and do­ing it on the train is a great way to re­fresh your vi­sion and stay cre­ative dur­ing this im­por­tant stage.”

Baby Chimera “This is an il­lus­tra­tion cre­ated for a con­test, where I came fourth. It’s my first clean il­lus­tra­tion. I used a CG ren­der­ing-based tech­nique to achieve a clean and real­is­tic look in less than eight hours. I painted the dif­fer­ent sil­hou­ettes, then the raw dif­fuse tex­tures in­side, an oc­clu­sion pass, a light pass, and then lastly I pol­ished some de­tails.”
