one of the most influental scifi-artists of our times, one of my earliest (and constant) influences.
“I have been impressed and affected by Moebius's keen and unusual sense of design and the distinctive way in which he depicts the fantastic.”– George Lucas: Paul Gravett: Graphic Novels. Stories to change your life. Collins Design, New York 2005, S. 90
he is also on good terms with hayao miyazaki and his work at stan lee's silversurfer is legendary.
anyone surprised ?

Decided to participate in this week's CHOW - topic is "The Lady Of The Lake" - as well (hope I'll get to finish this time :D)
I wanted to go about painting with a new approach, which means 1. I actually do some sketching and not just take whatever design first comes to mind and 2. I do my sketches as little b&w value studies and not as drawings/scribbles :]
So here are the three sketches I came up with:
|Serene Lady of the Lake|
|The Lady's bestowal of Excalibur|
|Nimue, Lady of the Lake, Guardian of the Sword|
