ZORRO by tom fowler


like some of my fellow twartterers, i wasn't totally satisfied with my first go at this...

so i did a second:



i had loads of fun doing these, either way, and i'm looking forward to what's next!


EDIT: some of us here on twarttington lane have been having trouble getting the comments section to work for us. which makes it difficult for us to say thank you or call andy a jerk...

if there's anyone out there who's encountered and overcome this "select profile" style comment problem, please enlighten us in, well, the comments.

and thank you all.

...except andy.

Super Mega Awesome-Tastic! There's a great extra little flair to both of these, Tom.

Oh and welcome!

We just got Fowlered!

Declan Shalvey said...

Ah, fantastic stuff Tommers!

I really like the heroic shot, but i think i prefer the first one. It's really subtle, not as obvious as.... well.... mine, for example.

Nick Derington said...

Gorgeous work! Toth would be proud.

Dan McDaid said...

These are fucking amazing.

The storytelling in that first one is superb.

Ramón Pérez said...

i like it! though the figure is sweet, i really enjoy the scene as it evokes the swashbuckling feel of zorro!

laura said...

YAY, I can comment now! Thank you, Laura :)
Great drawings (as mentioned elsewhere ;)): love that first one. Now I know why you needed "solicitado" ;)

Cheers,
Francesco

I like both, but the depth of that first one is great, Tom. Not to mention the great shadow work.

His face in the second one is fantastic though.

I want to buy all the art on this blog. How much for every Zorro piece!

Chris Samnee said...

These are gorgeous, sir. GORGEOUS!!

Ron Salas said...

Wow, these two absolutely blow me away. Love the sense of motion and depth in the first one and your rendering of cloth and how it moves in the second.
Just WOW.

Nathan Fairbairn said...

They're both amazing, but I love the depth and storytelling in the first. That would be a lot of fun to color. (Not that it needs color, just saying is all ... ;)
