so you want to be a cowboy...

...do you know that's it more than just the ride? printed last night in artlab at the very last minute. i also managed to get two full posters printed out onto somerset satin and they look beautiful. i am so pleased with how this design turned out. the lettering was easier to sort out than the robber bird image. i had drew him out but it was difficult to decide how to colour him in. in the end i went for a textured approach, using potatochop, pencil crayons and a bit of gray scaling and bit mapping. after all that i just stuck him on the old school photocopier to sharpen him up a tad.
