Antoine Helbert, if you haven’t heard of him, is a universally acclaimed French illustrator.  He’s probably most famous for his Orangina series, depicting a variety of anthropomorphized critters in racy poses–you furries out there are already aware of this artist, I’m sure.

For the rest of you, here’s the original animated ad, inspired by Helbert’s illustrations:

(Note: For clarification, Helbert did not work on the 3D animated commercial… forgive me, but I have no idea who did.)

In addition to his lovingly rendered human-animal hybrids, Antoine Helbert’s body of work also features superhero fan art (even racier) and neo-traditional pinups.  When he isn’t working on a commission, he’s the scenic painter for the Strasbourg Opera (in Strasbourg, France).  His general technique is to hand-paint an oil-on-canvas image that he’ll finish in Photoshop, and the finished images look airbrush-perfect.  The results speak for themselves–exquisite, colorful and unique.

Here are a few more of his tentacled images:

The Tongue Collector Version Two is a digitally colored pencil drawing.  Click the link below the image for a differently-colored version.

Here’s the original graphite:

And if this image isn’t awesome enough, consider the fact that the character is meant to be the female counter-part of a creature called The Eyeball Collector.

Andy Brase is heavy metal enough, in my opinion.

From the Artist:

“He has many tentacles, and doesn’t like humans or wearing clothes.  His interests are snorglurging and long walks on the beach.”
