Undead Dragon O Ka Fee by RubisFirenos Undead Dragon O Ka Fee by RubisFirenos
:coffeemachine:

Undead Dragon for the book and :icondragoncartoonclub: contest.

He is badass, he smell like corpse ... he is the most lovely dragon ever seen.

Love for him, he is dead, but he needs some love.

PS : As explained in the critic, if I abstract some details it's because it's for a general public book. This creature is enough scary itself, I don't want to tramatize children.

COMMENTS PLEASE !! :heart:

Medium : Coffee/Pigments/Inks

FAQ : What is O Ka-Fée ?

O Ka-Fée is the term concerning all my paintings done with coffee. It concerns the way of painting and of obtaining textures with coffee. It's about projections of coffee, which once in stains on the sheet, undergo injections of pigments. (Powder, colorex, watercolor.)

Textures realized by coffee by drying (more or less sweetened) are unique, they are more interesting than those realized with water.
The coffee is a rather complex medium has to master, it's necessary to know its reactions to be able to manipulate it with pigments, we learn it every day.

O Ka-Fée also concern my graphic style and the whole universe which gets free of it. It's for that the term is my own brand. :)


Please, respect my universe and work.

FAQ : Qu'est ce que O Ka-Fée ?

O Ka-Fée est le terme concernant mes peintures réalisées avec pour base de café. Il s'agit de la manière de peindre et d'obtenir des textures réalisées par le café. Dans un premier temps ce sont des projections de café dans lesquelles ensuite on injecte des pigments. (Poudres, colorex, aquarelle.)

Les textures réalisées par le café (plus ou moins sucré et selon la marque.) sont uniques, elles sont plus fortes et intéressantes que celles réalisées avec l'eau.

Le café est un médium complexe a maitriser, il est important de connaître ses réactions afin de les manipuler avec les pigments, on en apprend tous les jours de part ce médium.



O Ka-Fée concerne aussi mon univers et style graphique, ce sont souvent des peintures et univers libres, avec du mouvement et de la poésie.



Merci de respecter mon travail et univers.

I myself have never tried working with coffee, but I do know ink very well. I'll start off by saying you did a wonderful job in both combining/blending colors, as well as adding highlighted areas in the red, black, and white. This is a beautiful piece, with so much color and texture. It definitely holds you looking at the details. I love the perspective and angle you chose to view the dragon from. The only things I don’t like about this piece are~ "it may just be part of your stylization" but your dragon anatomy seems a little off. Mainly just the fact that the wings look positioned really far back on the dragons body, I feel like the dragon would struggle to support itself. And lastly I feel like the entire piece is amazingly worked, it has beautiful intricate detail everywhere except for the bottom. The green and red splotches feel like they were done hastily and with little detail compared to the rest of the piece. They feel somewhat thrown in “like you weren’t entirely sure what you wanted to do with the bottom”, and they somewhat detract from or weaken the overall presence of the piece.
Overall this is amazing work, very beautiful, I love your shape, detail, and overall form, I would only change small things as mentioned above.
What do you think?

First off, "Oh my god, that is coffee." That aside, I must state the impact is astounding. How the background almost devours the wings except for the bone wings is a detail I particularly liked. The technique is wonderful, the bleeding of colors and the dark pigment touched off with blushes of red is eye-catching. The pose is original with that claw being dragged in the dirt. The only thing I can see needing critique is that the ground could have done with some lines to identify the objects there. An angle could have been beneficial as well. Nicely done.

I'm going to have to try O Ka-Fee some time. It gets very nice results. BTW, you should do a time lapse of one of your paints and a little about how you mix the coffees.

bonjour

aurais-tu un tutoriel sur la façon dont tu procède pour réaliser des peintures "O Ka-Fée" ?
ce style m'intéresse beaucoup, bien que ce soit le tien, j'aimerais pouvoir m'entraîner ^^

cela m'aiderait énormément, et probablement d'autres artistes, alors merci d'avance~

Bonsoir !

Tout d'abord merci pour le commentaire et intérêt porté à mon travail !
Je n'ai malheureusement aucun tutoriel sur la technique, parfois en livestream j'explique un peu, mais je garde le reste pour les cours et stages que je vais faire faire d'ici un an. Il faut bien qu'on gagne sa croute en tant qu'artiste :)

Je suis donc désolée de ne pouvoir répondre à votre demande....

Mais je peux tâcher de faire quelques step by step une prochaine fois si cela intéresse.

Bonne journée/soirée !

Je sais pas si tu as lu la BD La Licorne mais ce dragon semble très inspirés des créatures glauques et mystiques qui y grouillent.

Il est vraiment cool en tout cas. Très belle dynamique, on sent le truc très vif qui peut fondre sur toi avant que t'aies le temps de hurler "mamaaan!"

J'adore l'effet écorché! :love: La pose est superbe et les couleurs sont magnifiques! Un très beau design et je trouve que les "taches" blanches au premier-plan font très crânes, ça rajoute un côté bien malsain!
