Remy Champion!

I've done this illustration for my good friend Remy who loves vintage motorbikes. He has just finished his first comic book for Casterman in France.
His book is going to be released in June, it's called "Acheve d'Imprimer", all in black and white, it looks great! I'll update this post as soon as he sends me some drawings from it to share with you.



I've also included the rough, I've drawn the bike and the little guy separately.

Lovingly done. Nice touch adding the cast shadow, and it is great to see how you composited the images! He's a cute little rider. Is he of age? ;)

I needed to improve my grammar:
Motorcycles are real bitches to draw but nothing compared to drawing push bikes. So far, the best drawn bicyles I've ever seen were drawn by André Franquin in "La mauvaise tête"..A real object lesson...Said that...I LOVE your drawing, Stef.

- Thanks Clio, I like using my brush pen a lot, I like it because I manage to keep all the life I have in my roughs drawing, actually here, it's the rough drawing, I didn't want to go to a clean up.

-Thanks Doodlers. My friend Remy is a very tall and thin guy, I thought it would funny to make him small as a kid, proud to be next to a real sports bike.

-Thanks Alina, Monica and Jose.

- Thanks Oscar! Agree with you, Franquin was a Master to draw all sorts of vehicules, the guys who are drawing the "Jo Bar Team" comic book in France are very good too.
