Roy Crane's cowgirl

Image hosting by Photobucket
I was studying yesterday my favorite artist from the newspaper strip era - Roy Crane... Especially the way he draws girls, with clean lines. Crane's women look like they've stepped out of the films from early 20's and 30's. Make-up and all. Everything in Crane's comics, especially Wash Tubbs & Captain Easy is drawn with a few precise lines and his style is unique because it's neither cartoony nor realistic. That's why I like it.
