AquaSixio's Profile Picture
Cyril Rolando
Artist | Professional | Digital Art


Artistic approach :
My artistic approach is set between surreal and fantasy style... in one word : Otherworldly. I never took art course that's why I have few anatomy/perspective notions. I work with intuition to compensate for this lack of knowledge and venture into colors. I use only Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom tablet. I don't know how to draw on paper support.

Influences :
I'm aware my works don't come within the scope of a high artistic richness. I don't want to do beautiful things, but bringing out the difficulty to catch the emotional aspect in tiny, frozen, flat colored rectangles. Overall, I want to " tell something ", not only " show pixels ". Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki are both the roots of my own world. I like the surrealism movement, especially the work of Boris Vian and his Foam of the Daze (l'écume des jours). I like the absurdity, the creativity and the enchanting universes, where colors bring more emotions than thousand smiles or a million tears.

Inspiration :
I am curious of life. I admire the work of the time, the evolution of societies, the change of thoughts, the human drops after drops are born oceans. I choose the pseudo Aquasixio to put together my favorite element with my favorite digit. My characters are often lost children or in quest for their truth (and not THE truth). Their stories are quite sad but the darkness of life is more inspiring than happy and safe people, in my opinion.

Otherworldly world :
I " try " to avoid to go into cliches (emo-fantasy-surreal labels), that's why I often use animals, attempting to be original to speak about ordinary theme. I think humans are proud, mistrustful and self-centered (and I am human). I want to hand over to the animals, to critic or play human roles. They don't carry hidden symbols ; this is just a return to innocence, a naive vision of the world. This is a return to childhood, where animals can speak, dreams become reality and imagination rules the world.

Digital painter :
I am realistic and quite pessimistic. I try to remain authentic, I don't think myself as an artist, but a simple Photoshop user. Since I work as psychologist, I have more distance with my art hobby. The popularity makes me feel as ill at ease as the indifference. I am really impressed by the artworks of the young artists gathered on Deviant Art, I admire the job of janaschi, loish, and arcipello and many other. I am proud to be a member of the new generation but I can't invest myself more on this way.

Tutorials :
I am really interested when artists add a step by step of their drawing to reflect the slow evolution of the creation. As freelance artist, I learnt how to draw watching young artist submitting their artworks/oekaki. I add my work-in-progress to show how strange blurred strokes could turn into a face or a tree. I did a lot of tutorials for explaining my approach, not to say that my way of drawing is perfect but sharing the process, how a tiny spark can come on a gigantic dancing fire. You have to be persevering.
  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: Mapei - Don't wait

It is with a great pleasure that I announce the opening of my official shop ! ------>

What I propose today is a direct link with the artist, with the possibility to purchase high quality prints, with vivid and accurate colors. These reproductions are personally checked, signed, numbered then tidily packaged in order to reach you carefully. I have chosen the canvas format for giving you the possibility to frame it. 

Only six 12x18’’ artworks are available, in a Limited Edition of 100 copies. 

Moreover, to emphasize the «  official » dimension, I created « original and unique » artworks, non available in the regular shops (such as DeviantART, Society6, Curioos,…). These exclusive artworks are included in a Limited Edition of 100 copies. 

Furthermore, I will offer prints of my other artwork, upon request, which will be signed but not numbered. The available sizes are 12x18’’ and 20x30’’.

Do not hesitate to share feedback and wishes, in order to develop new artworks format.

Thanks again for you support,

You are still standing by AquaSixio
You are still standing


Calm down… and keep breathing… I know you are shocked by what happened… It’s awful what they have done… 
Calm down… Cry, you can cry, so cry ! See, you are still standing, look at you… 
So, don’t be afraid, otherwise these events would be useless… don’t close your heart, don’t close your mind. 
Can you hear me ? Did you look at all these people supporting you ? 
Your allies are here et keep standing against violence. You are stronger than you think, look at yourself… 
Do you know crisis are a way to change ? You will learn, you will grow up… 
They have failed, you are not gaged, so sing with all those who supported you, yell your courage,
write a new page of your story and draw your destiny. 
No one can control your way of living, you are free of thinking and free to express yourself : Words rather than violence.
I am sure there is something to learn of it, without going to the extreme thinking. It’s not the first time you are injured or threatened…

So, don’t forget your values and resist. 


Calme toi… respire… Je sais que tu es choquée par tout ce qui est arrivé… c’est terrible ce qu’ils ont fait…
Aller… respire doucement… tu as le droit de pleurer, alors pleure ! Tu vois, tu es toujours debout, regarde toi… 
Alors n’aie pas peur, sinon tout ça n’aura servi à rien… ne te ferme pas, ne t’enferme pas. 
Tu m’entends ? Tu as vu tout ce monde autour de toi ? 
Tes camarades te soutiennent et s’élèveront toujours contre la violence. Tu es plus forte que tu ne le penses, regarde toi… 
Dis toi que les crises font toujours avancer, tu vas apprendre de tout ça, tu vas grandir… 
Ils n’ont pas réussi à te bâillonner, chante avec ceux qui te soutiennent, hurle ton courage, 
écrit un nouveau chapitre, dessine ton avenir. 
Personne ne peut décider à ta place, tu es libre de penser et de t’exprimer : les mots plutôt que la violence. 
Il y a surement quelque chose à comprendre de tout ça, sans tomber dans tes extrêmes. 
Il faut faire face, c’est une énième révolution, ce n’est pas la première fois que tu subis l’affront et la menace…

Alors n’oublie pas nos valeurs et résiste.

Nine Lives by AquaSixio
Nine Lives


I have to wake up, then gulp down my breakfast.
I pull on my shoes, it’s time to really go to work !
I am so productive but I must pick up the children !
I wish to do sports rather than making the dinner...

It’s 10 o’clock on the evening : time is running out.

I am watching the TV, near of my sleeping cat...
« You have no idea of all the things I have done,
While you use your nine lives to sleep like a log ».
He is yawning now and rubs his head on my hand.

The cats know more about the meaning of life than us.

*Animals will save the world*
