TARZAN by Chris Samnee

Sorry to contribute so late in the week. Between drawing two books and moving, things have been crazy, but I didn't want to miss out on Tarzan week!

As usual Samnee knocks it outta the park. Love the way Tarzan is delineated by the shadows over him

Kevin Nowlan said...

The shadows are beautifully arranged! I love the ape's body language... he looks like he's trying to sneak up on her quietly. Maybe it's the position of the arms?

Francesco Francavilla said...

That's a beutiful piece of storytelling there, Chris, and the shadows play on Tarzan is outstanding! LOVE IT! :D

Cheers,
Francesco

Wow, compliments from Kevin Nowlan! That's when you know you've made it. :)

Fantastic work all around, Chris. I really love that tree and how the use of thick lines and blacks frame the scene.

I've got that Tarzan print from last year on my wall, it's still one of my favorites. Always a big fan of your Tarzan work, Chris. Especially like the dagger blade against the shadows of the trees.

LOVE the inclusion of the buggy and Jane. You're a fantastic storyteller, Chris.

Dazzling inking but lacks a real focal point as an illustration.

Are ya kidding me? The dense vegetation of the jungle, sense of suspense and impeding conflict seem like very solid focuses to me.

Ade Salmon said...

That's mood *not* focal point. Having three characters with the backs to the audience weakens the impact ( in my view) - it's like an inbetwen panel in a strip rather than an illustration.

Just an opinion y'know?
