Very interesting letter that discusses the process of coloring spirou albums. "I waited a long time to answer you!
For late mail, gaston (lagaffe) is not the strongest men please. Thank you for your album.There are many qualities in these drawings, it's alive, happy and the movement is good. It would be necessary that the drawing is specified a little, while keeping its paces of "first throw".
It is good that it is not too "licked". Felt coloring is a small performance, and the result is not as catastrophic as you say. There are several processes for coloring. Most often, the colors are applied on a separate support.
I make you a stupid picture- to show you the most common system in spirou. On the line drawing, we put an attached sample film on which we work with colored pencils of good mark. It can be done on a layer, much cheaper, but the film "takes" the pencil much better and we see more clearly what will be the final result. These colors on film are only an indication for the professional colorist who will copy them on a special paper stuck on the back of a film to the size of the newspaper.These colors are then photographed on special machines. This process is unique to spirou. Elsewhere, most of the time, the draftsman sends his board in black and receives a reproduction in light gray or light blue on drawing paper, at the publication size. It is this medium that he puts in colors, often with gouache; but we also use inks of color, + rarely watercolor and some even add pastel (dry) is all that I see to tell you. "Pay attention to the vangophan, if you find one: there are two qualities: this one, the good, no.
70a4, and another where the pencil takes much less well. The good is slightly bluish when compared to the other. The item "andré franquin signed autograph letter with model" is on sale since Saturday, February 17, 2018.
