Meet the alien samurai children hunters from France

I love to deal with masks, helmets, armour; they are a good challenge to create a personality only through pure design and body language. It’s part of a four-picture story. Words: Emmanuel Malin
Emmanuel is a French artist with a background in medical and architectural illustration, and a stint as an art director in the games industry under his belt. When I am given enough freddom with the subject of my sketches, I like to allude to my training as a medical and scientific illustrator. This article originally appeared in ImagineFX issue 34. It’s a very intuitive way to work, and I never know where I am going until it is done, or until I decide it is done. I love to draw the line work and then bring it to Photoshop for inking.

I love the purity you get in black and white.Emmanuel Malin is a freelance illustrator and fine artist based in Paris.
