It was the project where i stuided the most probably.I learned something new every day.

Found a new inspirtaion,what i tried to fit into my art.

Maybe this is the main reason why it takes so long to finish.It became so important for me,that sometimes i feel it is impossible to finish.I always find a part,or scene i could do much better,so i must go back.

What was also very difficult to keep the pages in a synch,and to be in the same mood all the time,what the book demanded from me!

I was sketching a lot,making color studies,took photo refernces...etc.Before i started a page.
And as i use watercolor mostly,its hard to fix the mistakes,or redraw just a part.
So you always have to focus on what're doing!!!!
Some words about the technics.Mainly i am working with watercolor,mixing it gouache,on a cold pressed aquarelle paper.And from the brushes,my all time favorite is the Winsor and Newton seria 7.Next time i will do a post only to talk about my technics,but right now its 4 a.m here..
a bit tired for this..prefer to drink a beer.

Hi all of you out there!
This is the first entry on my first blog ever! I created this blog primarily to celebrate the pages of The Lightning Thief graphic novel, which I must keep secret…for now. Until I can share them, let me show you some pieces from my earlier work.
I started the graphic novel, Spiral, five years ago; it was my first professional job in the industry. The book was eighty pages, fully painted, and took me two years to finish. Spiral was published in French and is available in most major French-speaking markets (France, parts of Canada, Belgium, Switzerland) as well as Hungary. Then I began working with Gabriel Delmas, an extremely talented script writer, on a project named Le Peuple Étrange (“The Strange Folks”). It’s a horror story, similar in tone to the works of H. P. Lovecraft. It is almost done and hopefully will come out this year. But I’ve had to put the working process on hold in order to focus on the Percy Jackson project for Disney ŸHyperion Books. That one’s on a tight deadline, so I really don’t have time for anything else. For The Lightning Thief, I’m just penciling and inking, a first for me (I’ve always done my own painting, too). It has been a great challenge. And still is. To do something for a much younger audience is a lot of fun for me. I’m really excited to show you the results; I hope you won’t have to wait much longer!
