It's fabulous and I really love the way you drew the hands. Maybe you could try to make the brim a little bit broader and darker as well.

Great work Vince - 'hey blondie !!' it's so good I can hear the music - I have to echo Nelson's comment, one of my all time favourite movies.
Top piece.

Great start Vincenzo.
Instantly recognizable of course, with your elegant line.
Perhaps you don't know, but "spaghetti westerns" have always had a lot of success in France, and caricaturists like them a lot, and draw them a lot (see Da Costa, Achdé and Maester works about this - links on my blog - you can also watch my website, many old works on this subject)

Cheers Mate!

Jean-Marc
Merci!!! I'm familiar with the work of Maester since he's been posting on the DrawingBoard, and thanks for the heads up on Da Costa and Achdé as well!!

All the best

Vin, splendid work as always man! You seem to strike the right chords on every piece you play.

Vincenzo said...

Marion
Bedankt!!...and yes hands are very tough, it's a constant struggle with those damn things trying to get them looking fairly descent :(

Bat
Thanks my friend!!!

Maritze said...

Mate! I just rewatched 'For a Few Dolars more' after not seeing it for 15 years or something. What a movie! Leone is the MAN! And like I said before...Great work on these Vince.
