By profession, Cyril Rolando is a clinician psychologist in France, but in his spare time he is a digital artist and contributor to deviantART under the name Aquasixio. Rolando draws inspiration from his profession, human emotions, Tim Burton, and Hayao Miyazaki to create pieces that are as fantastical as they are surreal. Rolando self-describes his work as “a return to childhood, where animals can speak, dreams become reality and imagination rules the world.” Sounds like a good place to me.
In addition to sharing his pieces on deviantART, Rolando also posts tutorials to help others learn the ropes of digital painting. Check out more from Cyril Rolando (tutorials, art, or otherwise) on his deviantART page (http://aquasixio.deviantart.com/).
