Thanks a bunch Mustang! I publish all my own stuff pretty much apart from that anthology Toji and I are in. The only publisher that's ever wanted me was sort of a bum deal (50% IP ownership) and I declined to work with!
Uterus, do your thing!
Thanks, Wass. Always appreciate you taking the time out for feedback & paintovers.
Oh and Spex. I forgot to say: in all seriousness I do see your issue with his head; I'm just choosing not to sweat it because basically the whole pose is awkward for an actual human being and I want to keep his face fairly visible.
Thanks for the kind words!
I only ever saw a few episodes of Brisco; I guess it might've been a subconscious influence? If by Calamity Jane you mean the 90s cartoon then no; I actually only became aware that ever existed a couple weeks ago. It didn't really see much airtime in the US.
I realize NTO's late to the steampunk western party but even so I've always been more inspired by straight-up westerns: Sergio Leone's films, Clint Eastwood, etc..
