Les Cites Obscures

Been looking over the exquisite 'Les Cites Obscures' graphic novels by the Belgian comics artist François Schuiten and writer Benoît Peeters- kindly lent by Reinhard. I love the distorted sense of scale and subtle drawing style. Hopefully we can lend these sketchy type textures to our film to help the 2D feel.

Full train designs

Here are designs for each of the carriages and the locomotive with bells and whistles added. No really, bells and whistles. The middle carriage will be duplicated, probably three times to lengthen the train. Have made the rear carriage a little vault like as if it is for transporting the dukes treasures- I felt this ties it together visually. Also the railings at both ends leave a nice gap for Edward to leap away from the Duke during the chase.

I will try some colour in these drawings next.
