Hi there !

Sometimes I answered to people sometimes not... I simply forget to answer, or don't have time, or the question has been asked billion times, or it's too complicated to write it in english.

so here some answers: (sorry if there are english's mistakes, I'm french ^^.)

Do you take commissions ?
Nope, I really don't have time ! Sorry guys. I won't answer to note/PM about that.

Do you do prints of your illustrations ?

Not for the moment...

Can I use your art ?
It depends for what, If I don't answer then it means "no". Don't take it badly... It just takes too much times to make proper sentences to say no and I don't have time... sorry.
And please don't use it for 9gag or any other website like that.

What software do you use ?
Mangastudio 4EX for comics and drawing.
Mangastudio 5EX for colors.
I draw on MS4 because it's easier and faster for me.

Where can I get your brushes ?
My brushes are here :…
They are the basic one from MS5 but I changed the sensitivity.

Do you do tutorials ?
You can find some step by step in my deviantart's gallery and some livestream here :
My english is not good enough to do a clear tutorial.

Are you the bearded guy that you always paint ?
Nope, I'm asian guys ! ahah :D.

Who is the beard guy you are always drawing then?
Just an original character which the design is inspired from a singer , but I won't tell who :D.

Where did you learn to draw ?
I learned and still learn with internet, you can find almost everything.
I spent a lot of time on Posemaniac to train my eyes to see fast and be accurate.
For perspective, I really like the book from David Chelsea, everything he said is very good. I bought the DVD from Scott Robertson, it's really nice for free hand perspective...
For anatomy I learn from photography, at the time I followed a lot of nude photographers on deviantart and draw every pictures every morning...
I also learned a lot from this website:… , even if it is in japanese I understood a lot of things.
DVDs from Vilppu was helpful too.

And most important, I learn from drawing from life. Trying to draw every situations!

How much time do you draw ?
I draw 8~18hours a day. the average is 12 hours I think... I can't really say, there are days I don't draw... :)

Do you use references ?
Yes, I do. When I don't know something I look for it.

What are your inspirations ?
My inspirations are mainly japaneses manga artists, you can find the list here:…
I don't read a lot of american comics or french comics.

If you guys have other questions, just ask me I'll try to answer it here.

Print - Cafe Rouge by Nesskain
Print - Cafe Rouge

As promised here my little serie of prints. I made few corrections on each illustrations from what I posted previously.

This is a limited time print.
I will remove it in 3 months (the 28th of June 2015).

Those two characters are from my comic projet Café Rouge that is in stand-by for the moment, I have to reboot the story as I was experimenting a lot on this version. But now I have a clear idea about this project, but I can’t tackle until I finish another project.

You can still check the very old version of the comic here:


english (with less pages):…

I got a lot a very nice & kind messages lately, I’d like to thank you all ! I can’t answer to everybody but I’ll try it later.


Voyage by Nesskain
I switch to windows and it is quiet the mess with color profil... can't get a proper jpeg.

A quick video to show how I color beard :D… Sorry for the deformation I couldn’t get a good camera angle. I couldn’t make a longer video, my ipodtouch is already full T_T.

I spam the eyedropper a lot :D.

We see it better in 1080HD.
Lost by Nesskain
Might clean it a little bit more if I got time later.

Bon et bien c'est officiel ! Je suis tombé amoureuse de ton style... La lumière, les couleurs, la compo... et en plus tu parles français, que demander de plus :XD: ! (ça va être plus fastoche pour te poser ma question)

Je suis depuis un moment ton travail sur Tumblr, et j'me demandais : quand penses-tu que ton projet sortira (que je me rue dessus) ?
