Illustration Friday: Homage

My homage to Enrique Romero, who drew the Modesty Blaise strips for many years.

I admired his wonderfully bold brush strokes and exotic depiction of Modesty, even as I took issue with some of his odd proportions and his frequent drawing of her face as slightly cross-eyed.

Check out Romero's Modesty, if you like, here.

Anyway, I actually learned a lot from doing this. Really examining every brush stroke and squiggle in several of his works was useful--so different from the way I typically draw faces. I feel like I've added more tips 'n' tricks to my visual library.

Pencil; Pitt artist pen.
