Sketches- Zorro by DocShaner Sketches- Zorro by DocShaner
Back from a week where I did nothing but the sort of thing you see here. Picked a character that's interested me lately and drew 3 or 4 head sketches and tried to fit a pose in there somewhere.

Zorro is freaking awesome.

Your retro style fits this character well--he doesn't get as much attention as he used to, and that's a shame. Nice work.

Zorro is Made of Awesome™, and this is some gorgeous work!

It reminds me a little bit of Alex Toth.

That would be because I see his work on Zorro like the bible for drawing the character. And yes, he is made of Awesome.

The Tyrone Power movie still stands the test of time, even if Basil Wrathbone does his best to sink the show with his abysmal performance.

What I like about his one is the cleverness you can see in his eyes. Wise choice not to go white slits with the peepers.

Just did, yo... about like a month ago. And come on, every character from literature he's portrayed is grossly inaccurate. Now, I don't know if it's bad directing, or writing, or what; but the dude blew in Zorro. And Jeremy Brett 'sherlocked' circles around Rathbone.

Did I comment on this before? Or was it on some other subject? So sorry, I do not recall....

Okay Brett has become the pen-ultimate Holmes, I agree, those Granada productions are excellent. Rathbone was in a lot of great films other than the Holmes series for Universal, which were just hacked out programmers to fill seats in theatres. They were the television of that time. But I like Rathbone in "We're no Angels", Robin Hood, etc. He comes from a very different school and style of acting that 20-somethings don't usually appreciate and/or understand, as you so intellectually put it:"but the dude blew in Zorro." The same goes for the style of film-writing, directing, editing of that same era. It was more stilted and staged. But that was just the way it was, and if it were not for those early years, we would not have the modern cinema we have today. It was classic Hollywood. I can look at something like METROPOLIS from the twenties, and be very critical of the acting style, and see it as very stagey and overdone, which it was, but I understand that was the style of the time. And I can still enjoy the film despite these ...drawbacks? My biggest gripe about some younger people is that they do not seem to have a sense of history about film, music, pop culture etc. How many times have I heard:"I don't like black and white movies!" There is so much NEW STUFF being produced and pitched out into the information stream of TV, film, interenet, music, that the youth of today do not seem to have time to look backward and see what has come before. This is a shame. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it....and that is why we have all these miserable shot for shot re-makes of older films like PSYCHO and The OMEN. The originals are JUST FINE, but someone thinks that they have to remake them because the teens and young adults won't go see older films because they are black and white or have actors in them that the kids have never heard of. Some of today's so called STARS do nothing for me, and I just cannot understand their popularity, someone like Brad Pitt,(I tried to watch TROY, and just had to turn it off it was so bad and uninteresting) Ben Afleck, Matt Damon, I don't get these pretty boys at all! Understand there are many current actors who I do enjoy like Edward Norton, Jeffrey Rush, and even Johnny Depp in some of his rolls, but I'm not a big POTC fan. YES! I'm OLD! If I were your age I would probably feel the same way you do. But I'm going to keep on watching Rathbone, Vincent Price, Orson Wells films, they will always be my favorites.
I will dismount from the Soap Box now.
