Character Design - Final Paint

This is the final painted character I designed for Sam's Digital Painting class. I originally designed a younger more actiony cowboy (because I was watching a lot of westerns that week) but Sam suggested I do a simpler pose due to the inherit complications of painting a comic book action pose.

While I was trying to figure out how to simplify my design the thought hit me to go more Don Quixote-esque. So as a result he became an old gun fighter that was the best in his day but due to his fading mind he forgets he's not young anymore.

(I realize he has no gun and I completely left out his cane but I plan on working on him some more in the future, if I ever find myself with free time...yeah...on second thought I will be coming back to this...I didn't do him much justice.)

good work sky, your character made good progress.

This is great, Sky. He's brimming with personality (so much so, in fact, that I totally overlooked his missing gun-- maybe the outlaws will do the same?).
Love your work. Mind if I link to your blog?
