Each work of yours tells me I'm a fan of your style. 
May I ask, do you plan the composition from the start or does it crystallize while in process?

Thank you so much for your comment!!

That's a good question. As always it depends of the type of artwork. It can be the first option (planned composition), in this case I make several pencil sketches and sometimes painted ones. It can also be the second one, where most parts are quite "random" especially for the backgrounds. That's what usually happens for inked drawings like this one : sketch or reference for the subject, and random background.
Here I had the subject first (inspired by personal reference picture), and then the background. Sometimes it's the contrary.

Sorry it doesn't sound very clear.

j'ai eu des tonnes de soucis personnels (les joies de la bourse et de l'administration française), c'était assez dur... Sinon les examens sont finis et là je suis en stage et ça se passe super bien pour l'instant! Et toi ?

Désolée d'apprendre ça :/ J'espère que les choses se sont arrangées. Tu es en stage où?

This is so beautiful, I love the detail on the undergrowth and how it spills across the page. When you say this is a left-handed one, did you draw this with the hand you do not usually draw with? That's really impressive if so!

Thank you very much!! No, actually I'm talking of the knight, as he's holding his axe with his left hand. (:
I'm left handed myself, but I would be definitely unable to do anything good with the other one^^ (especially with ink!)

Oh I see! Haha that makes more sense xD some people can use both though, I think? Yes I am right handed and I definitely can't draw with my other hand!

I love all the branches and leaves. That horse looks just as ready for adventure as the warrior!

Thank so much for your comment! I used a personal reference picture I took during a medieval festival ; the steeds looked all very majestic (:
