Louis Cyr-Page Roughs

Some roughs from a spread in the Louis Cyr project...the ruled grey lines are a template I made for the pages, to keep everything aligned as I assembled the panels and type in Photoshop.

Louis Cyr Art

Here are a few more pieces of artwork from my "Louis Cyr, Champion of Strongmen" graphic novel project. The first one is simply a test piece to work out the look of the character and rendering. The type was not final; on the actual book the cover type was different, done by the art director...I just added it for fun.

Here's the linework alone:

A page of rough scribbles working on designs for some villains during the time Cyr was on the police force:

The final art for page four of the book:

Louis Cyr Inks

Here's a jpeg of the inks for page 13 of the graphic novel which I did for Scholastic Canada's educational division, about famous French Canadian strongman Louis Cyr. It was done as part of an early reading package, for Grade 3. You can see the book listed here on Scholastic's order page; unfortunately for anyone interested in obtaining a copy, it appears you may only order it as part of a set of 6 books...why they don't release it to the general market, I really don't know.
