The Fantasy Art of Olivier Ledroit

Hi Everyone!

As you know, my website presently showcases the fantasy art of computer games, so there's a lot of art out there that doesn't fit there at the moment. I can, however, introduce it to you on this blog.

Today, I'd like to introduce the art of Olivier Ledroit, best known in France for his work on Black Moon Chronicles (originally a comic series, later a fantasy computer game, most recently an online fantasy computer game).

If you've enjoyed games in the Might and Magic franchise such as Heroes of Might and Magic V, or Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, Olivier Ledroit is also credited there the "World Artist" (interview here).

Here are some pages from his now-out-of-print L'univers feerique d'Olivier Ledroit. It's easier to find his works for sale on French sites, such as CineBD (also a good place to scan through some of his artwork).

What gorgeous art. Reminds me of Arthur Rackham. I will be checking out his website. Thanks Simon, you rock!

I love the fairy art, but I couldn't find a website that really showed any detail... bummer.

Hi Amy,
Yes, I had trouble with that too. :-(
Sometimes it feels like artists from certain parts of the world just don't have any web presence at all, no matter how famous they are said to be.

Can somebody tell me what art medium does Olivier Ledroit use??? Especially in the Requiem book... Is that color pencil or acrylics or markers???

Mostly, he uses ink and acrylic on paper.
