Justine Thibault (@svn_dvn_j) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Justine is a concept & background artist from Paris, France. Her style is usually loose and she mainly paints digitally. Despite her attitude to keep the brush strokes visible (the result is amazing by the way) I see her going for a ton of details which should be against the principle of keeping everything “less precise”, like the strokes.. You know what? It’s the opposite! She knows where to put the focus and if you zoom in you’ll realize she didn’t change her style a single bit, it’s amazing cause it’s cohesive and produces a great result.
On top of that I have to say she masters the use of lights, including sunrays, reflections, bright spots and all those things. You’ll get a few examples I find wonderful down here:
The little cutie is .. dropping stars? Oh my words that is soooo cute! This piece really “shines” (yes, it was intentional!) once you get your eyes closer and see how many little things were perfectioned like the scarf and all those symbols, or the first row of stems that’s glowing.. It looks like the character that’s responsible for bringing joy and warm emotions when the world around is a bit colder and darker than it should be.
The second image is a work of beauty for a few reasons, the most important one being that there’s one of the most beautiful door’s glasses I’ve ever seen. You know it remembers me a little bit the old style mosaics that were commonly used on church’s windows. This one is truly amazing, it’s maybe one of the pieces that benefits the most out of Justine’s style of painting. Obviously all the rest is spectacular too, once again the light is a major component in both the scenes. Love them.
