The SHADOW knows... by DeevElliott The SHADOW knows... by DeevElliott
This was a piece I did for a charity in England. The comic conventions used to produce programs filled with art from creators that was then auctioned off at the end of the show for charity.

The Shadow has always been a fave of mine. Loved the Mike Kaluta and Frank Robbins strips, but Jim Steranko's pulp covers always nailed him best.

Thanks Jon,

I'd done this way back in the day for the old UKCAC show catalogs where all the art was auctioned for charity at the end of the show. Went for a couple hundred squidlies if I remember right.

What an elegant piece. And I have to say, the way you've drawn his clothes looks exactly like they came from the 40s era!

Thanks Javier, that's what I was aiming for in not only dress but 'feel' of the illustration itself. Love to do another now as this piece was drawn many years ago.

wow, I love this. I love how you rendered different textures, how your strokes and fullblacks make the volumes, I just, love it. the details of the cape folding around different things are just so realistic. awesome.

Excellently work on your part. You can not go wrong with the combination of The Shadow and Steranko.

Thank you. I have been trying to find more time to draw, but so far that's not been working out too good. I'd like to do another Shadow piece.

I like the Shadow more than Batman, both seem retakes of Zorro though.
