cowPoke Collection: ROUND VI

CowPoke_09 @ your service! (He'll shake ya, boy)...
CowPoke_09, Jed & Timothy- Which one's which!?
Introducing the first cowPoke in ROUND SIX: Deputy Piggins! Despite having quite a few in the backlog, I had to add some color to this newer one because of the aforementioned celebrity involved.
cowPoke_33: Deputy Piggins, weeeEEEEee...
NOTE: Going to park a  few more in this post, as they come online, to avoid spreading them out in the block too much:)


reinDeer REJECTS! (#it'sNeverTooEarly)

For those that know me well, know that I LOVE to jumpStart the holidays a *little* early i.e. The tree will be going up Nov. 01 + only wait that long, because Jen insists that we wait until after Halloween;).
In that spirit, I've decided to start a series of reindeer that were rejected from Santa's team for various reasons, which I'll be collecting in this post.

Without further ado, here is reject #1...

cowPoke Collection: ROUND III

What!? Can it be so, ALREADY another round of cowpokes + bonus bronco!? YES!
Like I mentioned, I have quite a few on the backBurner, so am really excited to finally add some color to the puppies, and get 'em out! Here are the next three pieces in the mix!
(the infamous) cowPoke_01
And a bit of that backstory that I've been promising...
In the future (before the SERIOUS space expeditions began) 'BIG RODEO' crossBred traditional, earthly bulls and broncos, w/ camels, dolphins, and all sorts of beasts to give the cowpokes more of a challenge.
Their thinking was that the dolphin skin would make them more slippery, and the camel humps (which they were able to increase the count of through genetic experimentation), would make them trickier to sit on. Sounds odd, but it seemed to work... for a while...

INTRODUCING the COWPOKE(monsterpoke) COLLECTION (session_01)!

After tinkering on TONS of initial analog drawings for the past few months (& becoming QUITE obsessed with them in the process), I’m excited to finally introduce the COWPOKE COLLECTION! A series of rodeo stars (including honest-to-goodness outlaws, deputies, and even a few sheriffs!) along the BEASTS they ride! I’m working up a bit of narrative to go along with the series (+ have a game idea brewing for them as well of course:)), although it’s not quite ready yet- Please STAY TUNED for that!

I’m planning on staying a little loose/ inconsistent with the level of finish on these images as they come online-- as there is QUITE a backlog that I'd like to post-- then pushing various pieces a little further than the initial ‘launch’ at my whim (or based on feedback:)), including MOUNTY versions of select characters!

Without further ado, here are the first five in the series- If you enjoy them even half as much as I did creating them, I’ll consider that a victory:)

critterCountry X: grrR?

Quick color/ cleanUp pass on an #inktober piece (which probably means I'm missing the point;), but it started as ink, so who cares:)?)

... grrR?

+ Might park a few more critters in this post as well, to be more efficient with the real estate- Stay tuned!

critterCountry IX: 'birdishes'...

These buddies are from a while back, but just got around to cleaning them up a bit- Could definitely see these working out as fodder creatures in a game- Would def. be a lotta fun to blast away at:)...

Next up, I think I'm going to FINALLY start posting some of the COWPOKE COLLECTION! Really excited about these, as I'm finally going to attempt to work the characters together with a little story:) ~35 pieces on deck so far, just waiting for a little spit-shine polish!
