Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

I love Wile E. He was my favorite cartoon character growing up. Richard, this sketch is perfect. He always tried every trick in the book and would end up caught or defeated.

The verse if I'm quoting correctly that is so apt "The wages of sin is death".

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

"Thank you so much, Woody! I'm happy you like my drawing. I must say, your painting of Lee Van Cleef is awesome! The colors are so strong and in-your-face, and the expression is so menacing. Fantastic painting, and just perfect for this challenge!"

Thank you very much!!!!

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

I love this cartoon! The Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner Looney Tunes were always my favorite! Just hilarious! Thanks for sharing this drawing. You did a fantastic job with it!

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

Woody, this challenge fits your work to a "T". Van Cleef is great. Has the dangerous look for sure.

Kay, Sam Bass is excellent and I like your media choice. The rustler is wonderful, too. There were lots of them in our neck of the woods in New Mexico, local yokels who didn't quite make the big time, just caused problems for friends.

Jenna, I like your drawing of Brad Pitt. He looks like a con man......

Looking forward to Christel's choice.

Richard, Wile E. Coyote is such a fun choice. Love it!!

Coming from a long line of policemen, I have a hard time with outlaws in general. In New Mexico they have made Billy the Kid into a hero almost. Many of the towns celebrate that he was there and honor him with names of stores, food and such. So, I chose to draw Pat Garrett, who in some ways was a bit of an outlaw, too. According to Wikipedia he killed fellow buffalo hunter and turned himself in without being prosecuted. He became a sheriff and spent a while trying to capture Billy the Kid. When he killed him, the writers made him out to be an assassin. He continued as a lawman moving back and forth between New Mexico and Texas. Financial problems followed him and he was killed in an argument over a goat herd near Las Cruces. His killer was never determined. He was so tall, he had to have a special coffin made. He and other descendants are buried in Las Cruces, NM.

So here is my 15 minute sketch in pencil in my coffee table sketchbook. It's about 5 x 7 from the Wikipedia photo. I meant to soften the chin line, but maybe he needed a tough chin.

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

This is so cool. Hopefully this does not have an expiration date? Because I want to get to it, but it will be way after Christmas. Off to research which bad guy was the hottest.


The work posted so far is amazing! Love the idea of working over book pages. Have done that, but never added he white. Is that guesso? I have use that on cleaned and dried tea bags.

Glad that you all like the coyote. He is one of the funniest cartoon characters I've ever seen.

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

Maria, join in anytime, no closing date so take your time. Yes, I am using white gesso over the page for a better support. It takes charcoal great but eats up graphite in a hurry



The Outlaw Josey Wales [/i]as played by Clint Eastwood; 5.25x8.25 charcoal sketch today on junk journal page that had been gessoed. I used Distress Ink spray by Tim Holtz mixed with water and a large brush to weather the page. As Clint Eastwood has been an idol of mine since watching him portray Rowdy Yates in Rawhide and seeing all his movies, he was the natural favorite choice. To this day I admire him even though he's been unlucky in love (who hasn't been) and is the age of my mom

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

So far all the outlaws have been men (and a male coyote). How about a woman outlaw, maybe Cat Ballou? I'm not good enough with people to draw her.
