These are stunning! The look like a homage to classic illustration and yet modern as well.

Nice work but when you make historical pictures - you have to check details of clothes and weapon. I can help you with it, if you need.

I understand what you meen but I'm not drawing historical picture, I'm drawing illustrations based on a romantic story. Cyrano de Bergerac has already been illustrated in various period and it didn't really mater for me to respect historical elements this time. Go to see this link for example :

But I certainly agree with you if my goal was drawing historical picture well...It would be really important to make more research.

When you make something in historical reality, you need reality in details. People looking at it. Cyrano is of course romantic story, but romantic story in XVII-th century french costume. Mixing details is allowed, when mixed parts have special meaning...
But to be more constructive: this can help: [link]

I like your drawings, really. They have special taste...

This is a shame. By the way - for me story about Cyrano was always very sad. Your drawings are sunny and joufull. I'm curious that difference in feelings and visions - because I know, that you can make it sad, but you don't want. So... why this is for you so sunny? It is not critique, only curiosity. I'm fantasy writer, I make dark and cruel stories about solitude which can't be cured by magic - so I look for inspirations.

Well...I don't think Cyrano is a very sad book. For me, It's about people who love words. The begining of the story is particulary funny with play on words.
It's not because the love story is sad that the way it is written is sad too.

But I don't think my panels are that joyful... Perheaps because I used a "classic style" people often have the feeling that it's less serious than it could be in modern style. Could it be your feeling?

Anyway, I'm glad having lots of interesting comments from you. thank you very much!
