1861 by SpelldustQuill 1861 by SpelldustQuill
Ta-da another update ^^ this was an idea I've had for a while now and I'm glad to have finally done some work on it.

A lot happened while I was making this. I had re-arranged their positions countless times and I ended up saving different JPEG versions of the file to compare them. I either wasn't happy with any of them or I liked more than one and couldn't decide which one looked better ;P

There is one thing I'm disappointed with and that's Bullseye. I love how he looks, but I had to hide his busy saddle behind the cowfolk to make it fit the picture's framework. That was a sacrifice that still stings a little bit. I just wish I could have shown a bit more of it ^^;

Actualy I figured it was civil war but I still wanted to be for sure because it looks like they're in mexico. So are they fighting for the north or are they fighting for slavery?

I love your drawing technique! It's so different, in a good way. And this picture is really amazing. I love how you made their outfit colors set the mood, as well as the background. It gives a much better feel than their usual bright colored clothes would in such a situation. :clap:

This looks amazing! Is this based on a fanfic, 'cause I'd love to read that. I wonder what they are looking at so intensely. 8-)

I was inspired to write a fic with these guys during a war but it's currently on stand-by, but I wanted to do something ;P

It's based off the 1861-1865 American Civil War.

Let me know that you are going to make me a pic of Woody inlove with me and flirting with me and I love it :squee: :happybounce:

This picture say so much to me! I'll start with the title, 1861 the start of the American Civil War, and the Confederate flag tells the war is coming their way.

Woody and Pete look determine to stand firm and fight for what they believe in. Jessie and Bullseye on the other hand look worried.

Jessie looks like she's not sure if they're doing the right thing and looks like she worried for her man. Bullseye looks as if not too sure what happening, but know it's nothing pleasant, maybe he smells blood and gunpowder in the air.

BTW I love Woody's shirt.
Well done, well done.

Against the Confederates. I think if they had no choice but to fight in this war it would be against slavery.

My God. That is intense. I think I just had to look away from this picture for a long period of time because of what it was doing to my eyes Dx It's very grim - I'll give you that - sending off the reminder that the uprising of the American Civil war was indeed a very dark time. Perhaps more so for the Confederacy being slightly outnumbered, though it's not my division to comment there.

The way you positioned the gang side-by-side in the picture is very allusive. Always will be a team, through God knows what dwelling times would follow. It reminds me of an idea I had the other month of the prejudice and discrimination that undoubtedly followed the Confederacy's downfall.

:/ You're manipulating me with your sly illustrations. Again... -_- I do enjoy the touches of tragic atmosphere you inserted into the drawing. Makes it seem even more eventful. I don't think there's anything wrong with Bullseye, but it's probably a whole different feeling when you're the one trying to scratch the idea up. And Pete -- he looks very intimidating. Wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of him.

Again, you have submitted perfection onto this site. Brilliant, as usual. Keep up the fantastic work!

When we work on our own piece we tend to notice things the viewer might not know :lol: I think it's because we're fully aware of its history and the ideas that were used and those that were not.

Philosophy, ain't it something'? :D

Thank you for the comment :hug: I'm glad you took on board what I was hoping you would.

You've made a point there. It always is different being on the other side, though it usually ends up being far better than one might reckon.

You're welcome of course. It's always a pleasure to hand you your much deserved critism. :hug:
