"Once Upon A Time In The Outer Rim"

This is a digital commission featuring a gunslinger facing off against a swordslinger.

The original line art was drawn on Bristol art board in pencil. The final artwork was colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me coloring (most of) this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

This is awesome! I laughed so hard. I read the title and started hearing Will Smith's Wild Wild West with the Star Wars visual.. Epic sweet. :rofl:

How in the world did I miss you as an artist on DA? *shakes head*

Anyways, I like the framing of this piece and the humor as well. Nice lighting as well.

I thought this was like the Bravestarr cartoon except he's older: the outlaw reminds me of Thunderstick.

Nope, it's Cad Bane and Obi-Wan in an "old west" scenario, per the buyer's request.

Ooh, he had better be careful. We all know that swords are infinitely more powerful than guns. Plus, he has a mask on. The masked guys always get it. Would be a great time to subvert the trope and survive.

ohmygod! Old western style! My absolute fav!! This is just SOO epic mister.... SO EPIC! You made Cad Bane look so bad ass and ready for a fight. His features look so good! The coloring and shading is astonishing and so realistic yet cartoony at the same time. Keep up the amazing work!

Awesome duel- Obi-Wan as a "swordslinger" is just an epic idea =D

When you think of Star Wars, you don't think of westerns.

Well, maybe this is a generation gap thing again. I certainly used to think of westerns when I watched Star Wars (the first one, well the fourth one, you know which one.) The whole Mos Eisley sequence seemed right out of a western, but with the special editions it's now a bustling city space port instead of the sleepy wild west one horse town vibe it used to have.

You don't? The cantina scene in "A New Hope" is straight out of a western (that's why it was called a "cantina"), as is Han Solo's outfit and his showdown with Greedo.

"Star Wars" was influenced by many things and the western film genre is definitely one of them.

Hmm, maybe that was because I associate Firefly/Serenity with westerns more strongly than Star Wars. That and I had just woken up when I typed that...

Perhaps I should've said, "You don't think of cowboy hats, gunslinging stances, and dusty twilights..."
