Zorro- Patrick Stiles

I'm humbled to be a Twart, especially after seeing the great contributions from the artists here. Thanks for the invite, Chris! Thanks to Mitches Breitweiser and Gerads for their encouragement.

About my own contribution: I've never inked digitally before, and I likely won't for future Twarts- not until I get the hang of it. I'm posting my preliminary sketches since they possess a quality that the digital final is lacking. I aim to redeem myself next week (if the Twarts will keep me around). Thanks to all!

Looks sharp, man! I like it. Also, I like the sketch with the girl leaning in on ZORRO a ton!

Still trying to get used to being called a "Twart" ;)

Mitch Gerads said...

Haha, "the Mitches."

You got skillz, Patrick! I can see in your pencils you have a great eye for dynamicism. Embrace it, learn from it, but never apologize for it.

I can't wait to see more!

Very striking, very graphic!

Francesco Francavilla said...

That first pencil sketch is my fav! :D
And welcome aboard, Patrick :)


Mitch Breitweiser said...

Looks great! I really dig the body language on that first pencil sketch.

Craig Zablo said...

I really dig the prelims, but the finished piece works too. Love your bold graphic style.

Patrick Stiles said...

Thanks for comments everyone! It's been a tough couple of weeks apart from trying to submit something to this group. Including me is gracious, as is the support of so many talented people.

Glad to have you, Patrick. Digital inking is HARD, at least for me, but you made it look easy, sir.
This is a lovely piece.
