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


Thanks very interesting. I have a book a tear page off for artwork, and will try the guesso!

Kay, good work on Hardin ... his name fits! He was a hard 'un!

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

I love seeing all these outlaws. Everyone's doing such a wonderful job! Keep on posting them!

Jo, you've done a great job on Pat Garrett! He looks stern and severe, which suits his character, I believe. Thanks for the comments on my drawing.

Kay, I love this portrait of Clint Eastwood - instantly recognizable! Your works on the book pages feel weathered and time-worn, which suits the subjects really well. Super work! John Wesley Hardin looks like nobody I'd want to mess with! Excellent work capturing a menacing, cruel-looking man.

Woody, what a stunning portrait Hesh Ke! The sense of light and shadow is so strong. Amazing work!

Christel, your portrait is so lovely. I love the muted colors, the composition, and her expression. Such great work!

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

Enjoying all the great work on outlaws. I would like to add my not so great pencil drawing of Lee Marvin (The man who shot Liberty Valence). Drawn a fair while ago. John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart & Lee Marvin - great film. As someone who's main childhood hero was Hopalong Cassidy (yes I'm that old) it is a joy to surreptitiously view this forum from a long way away and the old west artwork of the wonderful artists here so thank you Kay for brightening my Christmas by starting this thread.
Merry Christmas to everyone. Stay safe.

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

Ohhh, love Lee Marvin, too. Excellent Graham, you caught the mean and mischievous look of him in the movie. One of the classics.

It is fun to see all the ideas coming to life from out West and Down Under.

I love Lee Marvin, what an actor! I love your sketch that is so fresh yet so menacing. Well done, Graham! Amazing how worldwide our western lore is.

Hi Graham, and welcome! Your drawing is fantastic! The expression is brilliant, and I love that he's looking right through the viewer. You've done such a great job! Thanks for sharing, and I hope we get to see more of your work!

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

My charcoal portrait of frontier bad man, BUTCH CAVENDISH, portrayed here by actor Glenn Strange. The character of Butch and his gang wiped out a group of Texas Rangers...all but one, who was nursed back to health by an Indian named Tonto. Cavendish and his mob inadvertently had created...THE LONE RANGER!!!

Whoa! Butch Cavendish looks ruthless and mean as can be! This drawing practically sends chills down my spine. His eyes are especially good. I love the powerful lighting in this one, as well as the expression. Awesome work!

Thanks so much!!! Glenn Strange always played the heavy, even his turn as the Frankenstein monster in HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, HOUSE OF DRACULA, and ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN. But most people will remember his final character.... Sam, The Bartender on Gunsmoke.

Re: Notorious Wild West Outlaws Challenge

Wow, Woody, what a handsome, rugged, rough and delightful man you have rendered. I enjoyed the backstory and was not aware of him, so thanks for choosing such a character.

~ This thread has now garnered 1362 hits

Today I was just messing around with mixed media inks over a National Geographic page I'd put CitraSolv on to dissolve printing inks for future collage and came up with this. An unknown outlaw who has traveled out west in search for women, wine, and war. Acrylics and white gel pen were added; this Bad Boy is in my junk journal.
