Here are Rodrigue's instructions:
This past January, artist Clément Sauvé passed away after a long battle with cancer, at the age of 33. Clément worked for DC Comics on such projects as 'JLA Secret Files', 'Stormwatch' and 'The Human Defense Corps'.
Additionally he lent his talents to the 'Voltron', 'GI Joe/Transformers' and 'Infantry' for Devil’s Due Publishing.
Most recently, Sauvé redesigned many characters for the movie 'G.I. Joe Renegades' and created amazing character concepts for the EA's 'Army Of Two: 40th day'.
Best known for his distinctive graphic style, Sauvé characters jumped off the page with big bold shapes, exaggerated proportions, and tons of personality and attitude.
