For today’s #WerewolfWednesday post I’d like to direct your attention to Pierre-Alexandre Comtois, a Vancouver-based traditional and digital artist of 15+ years and designer of some Paul Kidby-level charismatic creatures. His work often delves into the fantasy/alien zones, and werewolves frequently occur.
I first saw Alex’s art by creeping on him while we were sitting across from each other on a train last autumn. Over the course of 45 minutes I surreptitiously watched as a staff-wielding winged gargoyle/alien materialized in his sketchbook. We had a short conversation right before we went separate ways at our stop, and he gave me his details on a scrap of paper that’s been on my desk ever since. I’m happy to have an excuse to share his work today.
You can can find his galleries of character concepts, digital illustrations and storyboards on Behance, Instagram and his portfolio site. He also very recently (as in Monday) resurrected his Twitter account. If you like his work (or if you have work for him), let him know!
