Return of the Space Cowboy by freakyfir Return of the Space Cowboy by freakyfir
Technically, this is the first time I'm doing a Space Cowboy but I just needed to sneak that Jamiroquai line in somehow. So with this guy I tried deviating from my usual direct top down lighting and also tried to push the render a bit more near the head area. I believe I've never used so much rim light before. I probably spent more time than I should have on this.

Also went the safe route and did some linework beforehand, seen below. Fleshing out this sci-fi western world might be pretty interesting. Perhaps I'll call him Marshal Flint Cooper, of Sector 13.

I wish there was more space western stuff like this! It's easy to find sci fi, it's fairly easy to find good western, but in my experience it's been hard to find both!

About time someone did a western theme. Even though I'm an older guy always looking for costume ideas for Comicons. Excellent artwork!

(as others have pointed out before) the whole theme of this could easily be put in Fallout and no one would suspect a thing,im a realy big fan of the boxy design on the laser rifles with an underhand rail this is like candy to me.

Honestly, we could use more media centering around space cowboys. The idea's really cool, even it's just a deviation from the typical Wild Western genre.
