Silver Riders Illo #5 - Riding into the Hills

By
I started working on a new series of illustrations for new pulp publisher Airship 27 - in this case, a Weird Western entitled Silver Riders, by Greg Hatcher.

In this fourth illustration: The four of them riding along the trail, Brainerd in lead, with Cheyanne right behind him, while Lisbet and Fallon ride side by side…as she questions him.

That's a nice piece of horse!

The texture on those horses alone...just wow.

The trick is to figure out where the muscles are, draw a curved line for the lower (shadowed) side of it, then build up lines from there.  Horsies have some large, broad muscles, so it's not too difficult!

So much detail! Tremendous job, sir.

Thanks!  I worry sometimes that I put too much in (like plants or rocks and shit) but I can't help it!

Your illustrations always rule!

This would be a beautiful view if I weren't staring at a certain part of an animal.;P

Cool Work anyway. You do create backgrounds.

Thanks!  I made sure that their tails covered the rudest portions of their anatomy. ;)

I feel that I've got a pretty good handle on figure work - backgrounds is one of the facets I'm now trying to hone.

Damn fine linework Chris. I get a hint of Moebius' work on Blueberry.

Hell yeah, thank you, man.  Moebius was part of what I was going for, particularly in the background hills.

You are very welcome, and you nailed the vibe.
