Creating an IP – 000

A few months ago, I decide to invest most of my spare time into the creation of my own content, aka IP (intellecrual property). 

This bring a lot of questions in my mind. Where to start? What is my universe? What is the story I want to tell ? How do you build a story? What’s make a character compelling? What make a good story?

I am a visual artist. I know how to make beautiful pictures for movies, I know how to draw, but I am totally clueless about storytelling and writing. All I know is that, most of the blockbusters coming from hollywood, nowadays, fail to bring interresting stories to the audience. I personnaly have a hard time to memorize the name of the characters of most of the recent movies I watch. In contrary, when I watch a Pixar movie, they always succeed to touch a part of me. I remember Woody, Buzz, Nemo, Eve, … So this is my point of start. Analysing what Pixar do and apply their « secrets » to my own story.

It’s a tradition, every new year, I setup new goals. In 2016, I want to become a better artist.

It is always fascinating to learn new things and see your progressions throught the months. So far, I always enjoy to try new softwares, new medium, experimenting various skillsets, sometimes, at the opposite of my main domain. This year, I want to continue to do that, but while being more focus on some specific goals, growing in my mind since a few months now. Starting to share my work, meeting other artists with the same mindset,  learning from them and become a better communicator in general is my starting point for this year.

I create this blog, to keep tract on my explorations and progressions. I will post here, my artworks, some reviews and various thoughts about the VFX industrie, the CG community and my art journey.

2016 seems to be a very exiting year!

Happy new year!
