Von Rothbart, from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.



 
Here is just a personal vision of the evil sorcerer, from Marius Petipa and Noureev's ballet.
I apologize to the purists if I am mistaking about the character.

Ouais... c'est un peu pas trop ça. Je le voyais plus avec une parka, une longue tu sais, genre fushia, avec des Ugg ou des Crocs.

Man! I have absolutely no words for your works. From whatever I have seen, I am just stunned!! Your designs have an intense character and a distinct attitude which I find so difficult to achieve. Totally mesmerized by your designs :)

Bonjour!
Je viens pour deux raisons:
La première est que je suis , bien évidemment , épaté par vos travaux! Vous avez un univers graphique vraiment intense , votre maîtrise sur la couleur force l'admiration!
Et la seconde pourrait paraître intéressée , mais elle l'est en aucun cas. :) Voilà j'ai 17 ans et je rêverai , (comme beaucoup d'autres) d'intégrer un jour si possible le monde de l'animation et pour cela intégrer les Gobelins. Ma question est donc la suivante: serait-il possible que vous me renseignez plus sur votre parcours personnel , pour intégrer cette école. (études, et ce qui serait merveilleux, planches que vous avez présenté pour le concours d'admission!). Si vous avez justes deux micro minutes à m'accorder , vous feriez de moi un des plus heureux fans que vous ayez rencontrés ^^ .
En somme , merci d'avance et bonne continuation dans vos travaux!

P.S: Je viens d'ouvrir un blog récemment , si par un don du ciel , vous voudriez y faire un tour! ^^

I found these quite by accident a couple of weeks ago, with no clue as to who the artist was. I am delighted to find out not only your name but that you have a blog.

Swan Lake has always been one of my favorite stories, thanks greatly to the character of Rothbart. I remember him very fondly from an old anime. When I started looking for videos of the actual ballet I was astounded at the majestic darkness of some of the Rothbart costumes out there.

These are undoubtedly some of the most beautiful designs I've ever seen. They're perfect, exactly what I think an evil sorcerer ought to look like. I am undoubtedly much more used to the darker, greener, more bluish color scheme usually employed in Rothbart's design but I can't even quibble over that.

The flame-like movement of the robes, the power of the shoulders, the effacing quality of the mask-like face... everything is just perfect.

I hadn't even seen the one in the middle and it's even more breathtaking than the others.

Thank you for sharing it online. It's been a real pleasure.
