Maxime Bolduc
I'm a graphic designer. While I'm similar to freelancers, the market which I cover is more around 3 fields :

Field 1 : Technical and skills supports. I'm working with other business in giving them a hand when needed.

Field 2 : Creative needs and devellopment. I'm an expert in understanding the capacities and productivity in a lot of fields. While I may not have the skills in every productions fields, I know about everything that can be made digitaly or physicaly.

Field 3 : Edition and script support. I'm not a self-acclaimed editor. I'm working with authors and editor in helping them getting to their aim or helping them understanding what is needed to get to it.

As for the classic arts, while I'm not commonly praticing them, I'm doing oil painting, water color (the costy one), inking, drawing, etc. I do work with digital artistic means, but I'm more personnally fascinated in working with my hand and making me dirty than working on the same hard surface of a drawing pad. (But I do like the possibilities of the pads! I got a touch screen notebook with a pen because of that!)

Current Residence: Canada / Québec
Favourite genre of music: Everything except country and some rap.
Favourite style of art: Manga style
Operating System: Windows XP
MP3 player of choice: Winamp
Favourite cartoon character: Alucard
Personal Quote: "It's not how we start that matter but how we end!"
ARGH! I feel not only stupid, but unlucky...

I just did a fine piece of work on paper using a mecanical pen (2H)... then inked it with a prismacolor pencil (B)...
Everything was great... so I thought "I'll try inking it with some cold gray markers... (Got a pack of Touch Fine/broad C Coolgray markers)

Since I have done the drawing+inking on... well... not the great kind of paper I should have used as I thought of it as some minor pratice upon beginning, I did have a rather hard time with the markers... (I even made a mistake... using a darker marker on a retouch... ARGH!)
By the end, things were still fine and especially for something done for pratice...

But then, I thought about sharing this on DA... So I put the sheet in my scanner, launch the scanning process and there you go...
(To be honest, the result since it's not calibrated, is as if I was doing some photocopy on a paper of the quality of newspaper... To be honest, I wouldn't even clean my butt with the result.)

So... I still haven't qualibrated it as I haven't got the time to do it. (worked about 11 hours today)

If I didn't used my cool gray markers, I would have been able to scan the sheet and apply the grayscaling digitally.
Even worse, I even thought about it... but I told myself "Nah! The risks makes me happy if I succeed without a safe-backup-measure) so I didn't scan the inked (without gray) sheet.

Damn my stupidity and stuborness!
  • Listening to: Something with my ears...
  • Reading: Only with my glasses on...
  • Watching: In front of me...
  • Playing: On my pc... My PS3 bluray lense is burn...
  • Eating: Depending on my mood. Love sweets and salty!
  • Drinking: Water and cheap juice. I'm poor you see?
