OH YES! Can't go wrong with a bit o' Toth! AND you've done a good job Mr. Hibdon, nice translation!
Thanks, I feel the same way. This sequence of panels really grabbed me, and this is the best way I know how to accommodate those feelings.
Is this from the big Image Zorro collection? The drawing and design and composition, everything about the art, really, is brilliant...shame the stories are a bit...hackneyed? I particularly like your second panel and the way you've made the faces in the first more "cartoony"--it works, I reckon! Are you inking with a nib or a brush or maybe a Pitt brushpen? I can't tell for sure!
Yeah, I found that collection at a local shop for $7 and poured over it. The first several stories are really sharp, but Toth even wrote about how many problems he had with the writing. I believe he would have agreed with you totally on that. As for the inking, I only use brushes and sponges, so I'll take that as a good thing! He has such a sharp eye for detail and composition, I wanted to exaggerate things a bit. I also tried a slightly different process, drawing out the complete image then inking on a layer of tracing paper.
