Retro Spirou by theEyZmaster Retro Spirou by theEyZmaster
A very old school Spirou~

-

Voici un Spirou inspiré par Rob-Vel, le créateur de Spirou! Et pour une fois, pas celui qu'il a crée au tout début, à l'origine. Mais son Spirou du temps de la guerre, son trait plus raffiné au fil des années.

Les gens citent sans Franquin quand il parle de Spirou, mais rarement de son créateur, Rob-Vel :(

I tried to base him on the original creator's design.

not exactly his first appearance:

but his later years design:

Badass fact: Rob-Vel (his creator) kept drawing pages of Spirou while he was fighting nazis on the front, in Belgium, back during the 1940s - and sending pages layouts and roughs to the publisher back at home to keep the Spirou Magazine in print!

Yeah :P

Then, he just sold Spirou  to the publisher, because it seemed like a decent deal after the war...

I'm just sad by the fact he wasn't allowed to draw Spirou anymore after that... (besides convention sketches)

Not a lot of people have drawn Spirou over the years, unlike Batman and Superman who are as old as him.
Here's a fun overview of the artist's intepretations:

my favorites are the original and the ones from the 1980s!

My fave is the one from 46-68 actually, that's the design that I remember.

Yeah, Franquin's Spirou is usually the most fondly remembered and the "definitive" version of the characters for most fans.
