COWPOKES

WOW! IT's been a month since I have posted. I was really hoping to post what I was currently working on at the time for work, but I thought I had better hold off on it as the Producers seemed to really like it an may want to see more. So, it may be a while before I can post THAT! So I'll post THESE INSTEAD!

I feel a story concept coming on...





I really had way too much fun doing these. It was originally supposed to be a set of 4, but I didn't like how one of them turned out. This was a GREAT learning exercise for me. I really don't know why I have been doing a set of characters, and not just single drawings...I think it just give me WAY more to work with...environment....story ideas....stuff like that. I found myself getting way too lost in the whole western setting...I think this past week, I have watched The Good, the Bad, and the ugly 3 times...

Anyways, I'll have more to come soon...

Nice job man these are awesome! I really like that texture overlay thing you've got going too, it adds alot to the images I think. Second-last one is the best I think, looks totally bad-ass.

Awesome work, Shane! I love the confederate sniper's banadaged up leg. I think he's my favourite one.

I really like the subtle changes of skin tone on Gatling guy's head.
