The Shadow


My personal definitive way of drawing iconic characters

Time we looked at my second favorite hero, The Shadow.

There’s a heavy influence from Eduardo Baretto from The Shadow Strikes, but really I prefer a little more kinetic feel to it.

The basic design is based on the look from the 80’s HeflerĀ  Baker run, and the look that I was getting from the covers. Sadly it’s pretty inaccurate, especially from what Walter Gibson envisioned, but it’s far to burned into my brain for me to change now!
