Characters illustration for Complex magazine.

For over three years, I was an official contributor of Complex magazine in the US.
During the past 14 years I have done tons of characters for many publications around the world.
Bellow is a small collection of characters I drew for Complex magazine in USA. They asked me to draw people for about 15 issues.

NBA Groupies.

For this series I drew NBA players’s wives.
I am French and I live in Indonesia. I don’t know much about basketball but I had a lot of fun drawing cute girls.

NBA babes

Tokyo brother.

For this illustration I drew a trendy hip hop man.
During his trip to Japan, this lucky guy hangs out with two Japanese babes.

The big kid.

For this artwork, I drew a young adult playing with toys while seating on a bike.
The generation born in the 90’s grew up with video games and computers. They like to watch movie adaptations of comics, play video games, collect toys. They are an adult version of kids.
The main difference is that kids play in the grass, they don’t smoke it…

The sexy wife.

This woman wears a diamond ring and poses with her two kids. Hopefully the kids will become NBA stars like daddy…

info

How much do you take to draw a character?

Please read the following information to better understand how I price my work.

Let me answer some questions about my illustration prices:

  1. WHAT IS YOUR DAILY RATE?

    I don’t use a daily rate.
    Tell me more about you and your project and let me know how you will use my work. It is just common sense. An illustration for an international magazine will be more expensive than a drawing for a local publication. Once we agree with the conditions, I will work days and nights until we are fully satisfied with the result.
    Important: Please send all advertising jobs to my representative nicolas@lezilus.com.

  2. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE THE ILLUSTRATION?

    I work fast.
    Illustrations for advertising usually take less than a month while a double spread pages for a magazine takes a week, etc. As soon as I start I put all my efforts, time and energy in my work. Everyday I email you the latest version, so you can tell me what you think.
    We can constantly improve the result.

  3. CAN YOU DRAW A CHARACTER FOR FREE FOR MY COUSIN’S WEDDING?

    No.

  4. I HAVE A TIGHT BUDGET, CAN WE WORK TOGETHER?

    Of course we can.
    Any idea is worth a conversation.
    Don’t hesitate to email me to tell me more.
