Space CowBui



Sheesh, 43 posts in the month of June...Nice.

Anyways, my cowboy wears an old astronaut uniform as a poncho. And apparently, he fights space monsters with incredible underbites.

When I was drawing this, I was thinking of “Thank You for Smoking.” If you seen it, Nick Naylor (who advocates smoking) talks to a Hollywood producer to develop a film that takes place in space where Brad Pitt smokes after a night of ravishing Catherine Zeta Jones. And Naylor questions how they would be able to smoke in an all oxygen environment. Well, thank goodness in my ideal world, space doesn’t exist. ZOMG!

Nice, homeboy. I see a little Travis Charest in the face... cool man, nicely drawn.

now that the initial excitement is over,... still like it, but, what's the deal with the Skele-Dude in the back? Maybe you could push his cowboy look moreso. maybe when you color it...? still lovin the dude in the front...

I inteded to have the skeleton guy doing something different that related to the character. But I got lazy...story of my life. If i finish all my assignments, I will finish up this piece.

I don't know why, but the use of the NASA space suit as a poncho is sick! I love it. It adds an element of mystery and huge story possibilities. Makes me wonder if he's a good guy or a bad guy or inbetween.

Nice idea of having the astronaut uniform as a poncho. I want to see this guy in action, fighting those kick ass aliens.

I too would like to see our hero in action! The skull monster would put up a great fight! Let the games begin.

Damn Bui-Boy these are some nice pencil skills!!!

Very cool stuff, nice graphic quality. I like the simplified shadows of the monster better than the man's face...do the same for the human and I think it could make it even more awesome.
