Here's a study of a Hugo Pratt Corto Maltese panel
A few things to note.
- Hugo Pratt's panel is fantastic. I love this sequence at the end of the Siberia story. When I was in Paris, I came across a huge poster of one of the images that I should have bought. Still regret not bringing it back with me, but I'll get it next time.
- I drew mine large (Approx 9"x12") which I think changes the overall effect of the drawing.
- Pratt would have used a quill for the lines and brush for the lovely blacks. I used a brush for everything on mine. I might try another panel with a quill.
Here's the original panel. Fantastic!
