William Tell in Progress...

    The left side is a scan from my sketchbook done in marker.  The Second page pen work done in photoshop.  Still trying to find the correct pens and inking style but starting to mix up line weights for interest.
     The evil king feels the poor farmers turning to archery are a danger to his knights.  They present a threat he must remove.  In desperation the king rounds up all the villagers and prepares to make their best archer, William, and example.  Mocking poor William by saying he would give him his crown if he could shoot the apple off his son's head with one shot.  The king has second thoughts seeing the determination and conviction in Williams eyes but the day is William's .....and the rest is history...or at least my version....
