the battleship albertine by nicolas-gouny-art the battleship albertine by nicolas-gouny-art
To my dad.

I made this drawing for the retirement of my father.
So far I remember, he has always got a deep fascination for cinema...

that's a really cool perspective. and i like the characters in this, especially the crying monster (i guess because he stands out the most).
does your dad make films? he looks like nice dad judging from this drawing :nod:

no... he'd like making films, and now he'll maybe have some time to do it...

the monster is crying, because the fairy splited with him, because he broke her heart (that's a melodramatic story)

I :heart: the maroon colour you used for the walls... it's like wine, very rich. And the detail is wonderful, you can really see the action!

oh yes, like wine, i didn't think to that, but i like it... i wanted dark colors, for the contrast with poster, and faded colors to give a past aspect :)

Oui, the wine gives it a feeling of the past too, works very nicely with the black&white.

I was a real fan of Alexander Rodchenko the russian photograper and graphic designer when I studied Graphics at University!!! I thought I recognised the reference from somewhere!

the poster is inspired by the battleship Potemkine (by Eisenstein), from the same period... i try to do the same letters, and use some pure colors...

so, your reference is very good :aww:

Génial !! Cette façon d'ombrer subtilement les formes, je suis très fan... puis les couleurs ont ce petit côté nostalgique qui convient parfaitement à l'ambiance, au message... je ne sais pas quel est ton vrai boulot, mais si un jour t'es en panne, publie des bouquins ! :clap:

c'est justement mon boulot, je publie des bouquins (pédagogiques, faut bien manger :giggle:)

je voulais justement donner un côté un peu fané, mais sans aller jusqu'au noir et blanc :)

C'est très joli :) Je ne comprends pas très bien les références, mais j'imagine que c'est personnel :)

l'affiche est une parodie de celle du cuirassé Potemkine, d'Eisenstein, avec des énormes lettres (d'où le lettrage un peu rétro, années 30, des celle-là)...
albertine c'est le nom de mon stupide chat (c'était juste pour le jeu de mot stupide)...
la caméra est directement inspirée de celle du Cameraman de Buster Keaton...

le reste est inventé, le ptit bonhomme est un portrait de mon papa, le monstre d'un fameux acteur, et la fée au coeur brisé d'une fée hollywoodienne bien connue :giggle:

je n'aime pas trop donner mes références en description (sauf évidemment en cas d'emprunt ou d'hommage), parce que je trouve que chacun doit pouvoir se faire sa petite idée, sa petite histoire à partir de l'image... je sais que toi aussi tu es sensible à ça (tu me l'as déjà fait remarquer)

Potemkine (and Albertine is the name of my cat, that's a silly words play)
