Florian Aupetit is a French illustrator, concept artist, art director and “3d generalist” based in Paris.
Aupetit has an effective minimalist style of digital painting that is best appreciated in large images, though I’ve tried to give a suggestion of his approach to texture and subtle value changes in some of the detail crops above.
A number of the pieces on his ArtStation portfolio are accompanied by detail crops, and in many cases, time-lapse process videos. You can also access the latter directly on his YouTube channel.
Many of the pieces in his portfolios are for a project called “Father and Son”. Even without knowing the story involved (or even the nature of the project), I found these to be a fascinating series of variations on a theme. I particularly like Aupetit’s juxtaposition of open areas with those filled with textural elements, and his broken color approach to delineating edges.
Among his illustration and concept pieces, you will also find studies that I assume are digital paintings from life.
