The Weathered Cowboy

I was watching a western the other night with my pop, and just felt the urge to grab my sketchbook and doodle during the movie.

There’s something about a good western, especially the old ones, that lures out all the interesting faces in Hollywood. They seemed to cast real people in their movies, not movie stars. Every now and then one of the real guys became a movie star, but when they put movie stars into westerns, they often stuck out like a sore thumb.

So, while this is no one in particular, it is inspired by the tough guy heroes of a good western. A good hero deserves a good chin and a surly squint. Gotta have the squint.


If a gunslinger ever told me to “DRAW!”, this would be the result.
