Final Sketch

Here is the final sketch. The story is that the cowboy is confident untill he makes eye contact with the bull - then he gets scared. I keep laughing at it... I might do a "Far Side" inspired comic to go with the painting to give some more insight into the story... we'll see.

Here We Go Again...

Here is my thumbnail for my Forth Worth, TX painting. My thought is to play off of the fear bull riders must feel before they ride. They put on a tough look (probably because they are tough)... but what about the rookie cowboy who is riding for the first time?

My final idea is a little different from my sketch, but this is where it started.

An older painting, but I'm using it for Illustration Friday. It's inspired by the movie, Glory. Finding peace amidst civil war.
