A very simple excercise indeed, rather than an actual artpiece.
I was satisfied with this simple drawing outcome and the art pen effect and I decided to share it.
Thank You, dear Amanda and Pat!

Curiously, dear Oriane, he was not an artist I used to copy as a boy and I was astonished too that my mind susbtantially succeeded to drive may hand well enough without any references. Thank You!

I don't know wheter she's beautiful, dear Sandy, at least according to standard canons, but she's intriguing for sure! thank you!

Hi Caesar, I just connect this machine and saw your comment. Pratt worked for the group Civita group in Argentina. Interesting because this is a biography of Hugo, take a look here, too. Anyway your picture is very pretty dear mate.

Italian artist, cartoonist... (http://kirjasto.sci.fi/hugoprat.htm)



Hugo Pratt was born near Rimini. In his childhood and youth he travelled with his parents first to Venice, and then to Ethiopia - both locations of his later works - before returning with his mother to Venice in the early 1940s. His father died in a POW camp in 1942, after British forces had completed the conquest of the Italian East Africa. During the war, Pratt served some time as an interpreter for a fascist battalion, and was shipped to Austria after he had surrendered to the Allies.
In 1945 Pratt entered the Venice Academy of Fine Arts. He created with Mario Faustinelle and Alberto Ungaro Asso di Picche, a hooded man of justice in the tradition of fumetti, Italian comics. With his friends he opened doors to the appreciation of American style comics, based on the works of Joseph Conrad, Jack London, Herman Melville, and Robert Louis Stevenson, which were not seen during Mussolini's reign. In 1950 Pratt moved to Argentina, where he worked for the publisher Cesare Civita, Editorial Abril in Buenos Aires and for Hector G. Oesterheld, editor of Editorial Frontera. During this period Pratt also taught at the Escuela Panamericana de Arte. In 1953 he married Gucky Wogerer; they divorced in 1957, and Pratt married Anne Frognier, whom he used as the model for Ann of the Jungle.

Thanks for the most exhaustive biography, dear Oriane!:eek::cool:
I would just add a curiosity.:rolleyes:;)
The Italian tem for comics is, as You perfecly said, fumetto.
The meaning (literally little smoke) is due to the fact that spoken and, especially, thought words, are written into little white areas oulined just like a small smoke cloud.:)
