TothPix: Only Gossip...?

A sweet panel by Toth from Gun Glory (1957 - Dell Movie Western No. 846) of a western gal gossiping about gossip.

The door and frame are perfectly vertical, no tricky angles needed when Toth leads the viewer to the lady's eye with the shadow on the door. Even the tail of her word balloon continues the diagonal, as well as her eyebrow, accentuating that through line. Her face is cropped for interest and to highlight the pretty lady is spying, tho with no ill intent. The rendering is simple, almost crude, the texture on the door contrasting with the clean, open space of her face. Toth doesn't draw the edge of the door, rather letting the viewers eye finish the picture.

Gosh, this is good.
