The Last Cowboy by raul-duke-05 The Last Cowboy by raul-duke-05
Cowboy Dan's a major player in the cowboy scene.
He goes through the reservation, drinks and gets mean.
He's gonna start a war.
He hops in his pickup, puts the pedal to the floor,
he says "I got mine, but I want more."
He goes to the desert, fires his rifle in the sky
and says, "God, if I have to die, you will have to die."

Every time you think you're walking, you're just moving the ground.
Every time you think you're talking, you're just moving your mouth.
Every time you think you're looking, you're just looking down.

thanks!! i'm sure he will. i'm visiting him over christmas, so he'll see it then. don't think i'll have time to finish the native american by then, because i'm taking a quick break to draw something completely different. stay tuned.
always appreciate your comments man!

No worries man, I just say what I see...
I've always been fascinated by people putting what they see down through their hands, I just don't believe I have the ability to make my hands do what they must.
I realise some of it's practice but you got to give some of it has to be there already.
It;s definitely there for you.

Everything's great but I'm especially amazed by how you draw the beard! What is your technique? I mean how do you manage to make all the layers, the fore- and background hair visible?

:D i'm so glad you like it, hair is definitely the hardest thing for me to draw. this tutorial made by akalilith:
[link] was very helpful, so make sure you check that out, she's amazing. Also, don't be afraid to erase parts and re-draw more hairs, sometimes it gives it some good depth.
