  1. More sketches, this time based on the leaders of the War in the Vendée, a very  violent, very bloody revolt that added to the turbulence of the French  Revolution.
Slowly getting my art groove back, slooowly

  2. I’m alive, really.
Just some face practice with some characters. Comics went on a bit of a hiatus since Comic Con…busy busy! I’ve got all my notes jotted in my sketchbook though, so something is bound to pop up once I get some downtime.
Speaking of comics, if you’re a French Revolution lover and need your fix, check this out! It’s called “Sky Over the Louvre.” It’s very short and features two fantastic artists: Jacques-Louis David is the subject and Bernard Hislaire is the one who brings him to life! Even if you can’t stand artistic liberties being taken with history, you don’t even have to read it, the gorgeous line drawings will be enough to keep you turning pages

  3. In honor of Bastille Day tomorrow! And I figured it was about time I finished this ink doodle that’s been sitting around for quite a while

  4. Did this mostly to get some practice with Photoshop techniques and experimenting with styles. Yay French Revolution for always giving me inspiration!

  5. Voilà, 3 hommes!
This started out as a sketch…and then I decided to slap some easy  color on it :] Kinda goes with the two ladies since these are original characters too. Jacquinet and new character Lemerre, a printer, discuss  their hopes for the future with an uncomfortable Duclos in the middle.  BUT, like a lot of people during the Revolution, they’ll probably start  out with a common goal only to end up butting heads with each other  later…

  6. Simple piece, just kind of playing around with style, costume, and getting my  French Revolution fix at the same time. Courtois has already been introduced and now she’s here again with a hat that’s ripped off from Théroigne!However, citoyenne Marlière is new; she’s a grim, quiet lady with a calm head and practical thoughts.

  7. It has been forever hasn’t it, I almost forgot I had this tumblr! Wellllp, I’ll catch up with a little dump of things here:
These guys came up as a result of starting a new book on the French Revolution! Citoyen  Duclos is a royalist, a lesser valet to the dauphin prior to 1792;  citoyenne Courtois, on the other hand, is an overzealous radical with a  penchant for sharp and shiny objects. Citoyen Verdier is a tired  gunsmith who loves big cannons a bit too much and citoyen Jacquinet is a  middle-class, assistant surgeon with strict principles despite his easy  smiles. Too bad if I did a story with these guys, they’d probably all end up killing each other…or getting executed I’m  no history expert, though I like to think I have a focused interest  in  it: patterns and colors are arbitrary for the time period, but the  cuts  and styles shouldn’t be too far off
