Expert Illustrator Luc's
Profile & Portfolio

Luc
Illustrator


Hello, I am Luc, a freelance illustrator.
A lot of my current work consists of
background illustrations.

My objective and specialty have always been to create
artwork that makes you "feel" the atmosphere.
That may include everything from the location's
temperature, weather, emotion,
or sounds heard from the scene.

In 2020, I immersed myself in
the world of illustration and the joy of creating.
I experimented with countless
techniques and elements for two years
while surpassing formidable difficulties
and trying to find areas I wanted to specialize in.

That being said, I am still somewhat
new to the illustration journey.
But there's nothing wrong with that.
That means I still remember
how I spent my days as a beginner
and deeply relate to those who have
also just started their journey.

I believe there are a lot of beginners facing
the same difficulties and trials I once dealt with.
So I have decided to share my discoveries and insights
with those who currently stand where I once stood
to guide and nourish their will to create.

Learn the Logic Behind Composing Artwork

Your main goal when creating artwork is to show what you intended to show. Every placement has a reason and plays a role within the artwork that helps guide the audience's vision smoothly, so their eyes move throughout the artwork the way you planned.

Interview
with Illustrator, Luc

Question.01
Is there a specific reason why you chose this specific topic/themes?


I feel that a lot of artists react negatively when they hear the word "backgrounds" as it sounds like a difficult task. And a lot of learning material is filled with complicated jargon like perspective that may leave newcomers confused and aren't sure where to start. From my observation, people tend to stick to drawing characters more, and it's a popular area to focus on: to those people, backgrounds come second, so it naturally becomes a less familiar subject. I was the opposite: my attention went to backgrounds and environments instead, which has brought me insights that I can share to provide familiarity to the subject.

Question.02
What are some "go-to" or "must-have" tools in your industry, and why?


The most obvious tools include painting software and drawing devices, and I recommend an iPad and Procreate combo for beginners who are aren't sure where to start. This is the easiest combo to get started with since it's highly accessible. Must-haves are artbooks and gallery books of your favorite artists or movies that you can reference and get inspired by. Basically, anything that brings you the heat and passion to create is a worthwhile tool. If you can be motivated and driven to draw it is essential.

Question.03
What do you think is the most important trait(s) to success in your industry?


Never-ending curiosity. Artists are a small mix of all careers. When drawing buildings, you're a mini architect, when drawing cars, you're an automotive designer. The more you draw, the more knowledge you stockpile. Your discoveries and research can be an inspiration to your creations and the push of persuasiveness that brings your drawing to life. It is your curiosity and greed for knowledge that make your work truly yours. It's also important not to rush results. Those who took it slow and steady while making lots of detours will have more strengths and weapons to work with than those who walked a straight path and only seek to do the right thing.
