Cédric Rivrain- The Techniques

Cédric Rivrain’s illustrations demonstrates meticulous attention to detail with delicate shading using fine pencils and gouache. He commented on the use of pencils in an interview and said, “what I like about pencils is the childish feeling of it.” I think his drawings portray simple, easy gesture yet outstanding precision which are the main reasons that attract me to his illustrations. He also said he uses an eraser a lot as he doesn’t like to be too descriptive in his drawings, he likes to keep it relatively simply and essential.

I think the first things that grabs your attention about Cédric’s drawings are the eyes- piercing, emotionally and fully alive. He once said, “I am obsessed with eyes. Eyes are for me the essence of a person. When I draw someone I focus on their eyes and the way I see them looking at me.”
