The Shadow Commission


What a cool looking character. Any chance I get to draw Tommy-guns is A-ok with me.
I often wish I could evoke that noir-ish pulpy feel evidenced in such classic books from back in the day.
Michael Kaluta, Milton Caniff, Hal Foster...
Maybe with a few more years practice...

Reeeeaaaaaaly like this one man. It's just a really bold composition so it works, regardless of how much 'drawing' is in it, though the drawing is great too.

Lovely piece.Funnily enough I`ve been getting into some reprint Shadow pulps recently and thinking it could do with a Mooney-sized kick up the arse a-lá The Mummy...

And it`s Milton Caniff with a C,innit, mate?

like this but think you've overdone it on the rendering. especially the left side of the face. other than that class though.

Moondog said...

Oop, good spot Luke.
Fixed.
Cheers Franner.
