Lucile Poullain ( 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

Lucile is a freelance illustrator from France, she does lots of character designs and definitely keeps them original through style, poses, techniques and mostly palettes. I’m in love with her choices of using dim pastel tones, it’s refreshing considering that software lets you bright up everything so easily without risks and I appreciate she doesn’t do that.

The adoption of a scratched and scrawled style she had recently is beautiful, I think she’s finding her world and the perfect conditions to let her art come through. We don’t know if this is the final form yet, but I surely like the road so far so I can’t wait to see where it leads!

Here’s a wonderful portrait using a cool background and the tones I was talking about. There’s nothing “too much” in here and the harmony of the colors is fantastic. The outfit is beautiful and the pants in my opinion are the star of the painting, simply amazing (even tho everything else is so good too!). Cute painting and look at the logo/signature, how lovely is that?

The second pic is actually a redraw of a piece she made in 2017, the old one is soooo different if you take a look at her IG post you’ll realize how much her style has changed through the years. I like both versions but I can’t hide this one is spectacular, she also gave her a new funny pose and the whole thing steals a smile. I don’t know why, probably because she looks like a little vamp from the 60s.. I like it!
