Duckish Cowboy And Talking Horse-Chicken

Alright, as previously announced, here's my hand-drawn gift for dear colleague Achdé ("Lucky Luke"). I did this in parallel with my Toby Skybuckle day-to-day drawing and writing "operations". A few minutes here and a few minutes there... I had a lot of fun with it.

Hey, I should think about drawing some duckish Daltons...

The next one will be for my pal Crisse...


  1. Very unique blog.

    WOW!!!! :)))

  5. Amazing, Florian! Man, what a gift!

  6. Thank you all, I was amazed at how the Lucky Luke colours worked on my looney steampunkish critters. I hope Achdé will like it. Btw, I did this in parallel with my day-to-day drawing and writing operations. A few minutes here and a few minutes there... I had a lot of fun with it.

  7. Hey Awesome !!
    for information, i do not know if Achdé saw this cause we have suffered a big storm here in (France south west) and i know that his net conetion was broken patience !!!

  11. Avec plaisir !
    No problem master !
    Love to come here to see all things... so ..

  12. Florian, your work is impressive. I am an aspiring illustrator. When I saw your illustrations I was blown away! What software program do you use to achieve those backgrounds. I have Adobe Illustrator and don't think it's possible with that. Also, if you were someone's mentor, what would you say to that person, what would be your best advice?
    Thank you in advance!

  13. I love your work! Your style reminds me of a twist of Disney and Dr. Suess.

  14. I'm a big fan of lucky luke and I do love now Lucky Duck! :)
    Bravo! I wanna see the dalton ducks :)

  15. in first instance I want to congratulate you for the excellent work with this site, second I want to ask you about that incredible effect in the first picture, how you made for the change of color? thanks
