I love the detail you put into the two figures, especially with Tonto and his shooting stance.
I also like that you have shed some light on the characters of these two iconic figures - the Lone Ranger is the take-charge guy; full of bluster and bravado.  Tonto, the more interesting character in this well-composed painting, shows the quiet discipline and strength of a skilled warrior and marksman - he's there to watch his partner's back and to get the job done!
Excellent work!

HELLO, again! ....

MY 'favorite' LONE RANGER 'joke':

The LONE RANGER & TONTO were riding their horses
one day at the bottom of a 'valley' .... When they looked
up to the top ridge of the hill that 'circled' them, they both
saw a LARGE group of INDIANS in their WARPAINT ready
to fight ....

The LONE RANGER looked at TONTO and said, "Tonto, what
do we do now?" ....

To which TONTO replied, "WHAT do you mean, WE, "PALEFACE!"? ....

SMILES ... bls35mm

A fiery horse with the speed of light,
a cloud of dust and a hearty hi-yo Silver!
The Lone Ranger!
With his faithful Indian companion, Tonto,
the daring and resourceful masked rider of the plains
led the fight for law and order in the early West.
Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear,
the Lone Ranger rides again!

Great picture, the old school Ranger is still the best. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Looks awesome! I really like art depicting this "era". Not that many people paint/draw things from this era, and that saddens me. Only one thing, though. By the looks of it, the revolver reminds me of a Colt Model 1851 Navy, but the rifle looks like a Winchester Model 1873, released the same year as the Colt Single Action Army. For him to choose the Navy instead of the SAA would, in my opinion, be a bad choice, due to the fact that the SAA is technologically superior. Whether this was intentional or not, I don't know, but it still looks amazing! Keep up the good work ;)

Really exquisite work - the coloring, composition, modulation of tone all excellent. Love the expressions on their faces, too. You can sense the danger, the tension. Amazing!
