Cowboys, a Flamethrower, and a Lunchbox

The theme that me and some of the guys I work with are just finishing up with is spagetti western. This first cowboy is my attempt at a stereotypical outlaw/villain.

Unhangable Hank has been shot so many times that his lead filled body snaps every noose that is put around his neck. This and the fact that you can't hang a man without a chin to catch the rope. This is my favorite out of the two westerns I did.

I have always loved to draw homemade weoponry. Growing up in the 80's I got an overdose of post-apocaliptic Mad Maxish/Terminator influence. Mustaches are cool too.

Lunch break.

Great designs, Joe. Unhangalbe Hank is my favorite too, but they're both really nice.

And speaking of 80's weaponry, that guy with the gun kind of reminds me of an aged Ghostbuster. I like his somewhat startled expression. He looks a little unstable to be caring such a firearm.

You do some incredible design work. I'm always impressed.
