I uploaded Villains 1 to 7 between Sept 2nd and 8th of 2006, just after the opening of my gallery; this 8th one existed in the scenario of Silvia’s adventures since years ago, but was never drawn until now. After a hand-made pencil sketch, this portrait was inked in full vector mode through Manga Studio 3.0 EX, then colored in Photoshop CS3 Extended on 13 Layers! The original file is a 400dpi A4 size, weighting 82Mb. This unpleasant guy is so described on Silvia’s site by the scenario-writer of Silvia’s story, L. Gerard: "Gedeon Briochard matches a model of man who is very common in France as well as in many countries. For these living caricatures, the enemy is the foreigner, the colored people, and everything which is social or collective. He is sad about the "lost of values", but he considers that France has kept good wines. He is living alone with his son Philippe, to whom he learns that, according to him, the flame of the political renewal should come in the future. He is also a collector of old weapons and, on sundays, he likes to go hunting "but legally! I have clean hands!"" In fact Briochard will never try to kill Silvia, although he hates all non-White people, and he never killed anybody… But, from a comic story point of view, he is an interesting character, isn’t he?
Note: The description of Biriochard is made here under permission of the scenario-writer.
To know more about Silvia’s adventures, you can visit my comic project’s site:
"Silvia (the adventures of Silvia Robin)"
This site is entirely bi-lingual (french/english), except for the balloons which are only in french. The access to comic pages needs, as said in my current homepage, a secret code. But without code, there are 59 drawings (formerly 52) in 3 galleries to enjoy!

Un misérable personnage remarquablement campé. Bravo pour l' expression que tu nous en restitues ici.

Le dessin ici est magnifique! Je pense que tu as parfaitement illustré ton personnage, dans le style Monsieur-tout-le-monde, toxique et nostalgique de ‘la France d’avant’. On voit particulièrement quelque chose de mesquin dans le coin de ses yeux. Très joli travail!

Une magnifique vignette , assurément typiquement 'française', avec ce nom de Briochard, et ton explication sur le dessin rejoint mon impression personnelle du Français sur sa défensive quant aux étrangers! Du très bon travail d'ethnologue, Edouard!
