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.”

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.”
