Hello ! My name is Adrien, I'm French, and 3 years ago I decided to go back to school to study concept art and illustration. Here’s some of my work from this year, I hope you’ll like it !

This is my most recent project for Rookies. I’m a big fan of the God of War series and wanted to imagine what might happen between the gods of Japanese Shintoism in a video game project.

The story focuses on the trio of gods, Amaterasu goddess of the sun, Susanoo god of the storm, Tsukuyomi god of the moon, and Amaterasu’s son Shiho.

Synopsis :

Upset by the goddess of the sun Amaterasu’s behavior and jealous of her responsibilities, Susanoo decides to join forces with the Onis to take control of the Celestial Plain. The divine war is then launched and Amaterasu disappears, shedding a tear on Earth. From this tear is born Shiho, who is raised by the god of the moon. Guided by wrath, he wants to defeat the god of the storm.

This project has allowed me to experiment with a lot of new things, especially during the creation of this illustration.

I really like François Baranger’s art, which uses photobashing to build the base of some of his illustrations : after watching a video in which he presented this method, I wanted to give it a try ! I have developed new abilities with this illustration and I’m looking forward to progress while practicing with new images.

Here’s another project I have worked on this year. The aim of this project was to invent a new civilization, mixing the Vikings, the Celts and the Chinese of the Han and Qin dynasties. Here is some of the research I did for this project.

Costume design

Props design

I was also able to work on the beginnings of an alphabet specific to this people and some thumbnail research.

My favorite part of this project was the creature design research. It was very interesting to create a specific mythology for this people and to blend creatures from different cultures.

Other works

An illustration I have prepared for an animation on After Effect. I really like the visual style of Ori games and I wanted to try something in that direction.
