Buckaroo Revisited

So I think I'm just about sold on the final design for Buckshot Billy's loyal steed Buckaroo. Here's the pencil sketches next to the finished model pack page - a great example of how rough sketches can be really pushed in Flash to be more dynamic. I'm playing with the idea of Buckaroo looking more like a toy when he's not in action - just to make it more obvious that when he is it's part of Billy's wild imagination. Maybe I'll do some sketches this weekend.

I'll try to follow your suggestions about the costruction of the illo in flash and photoshop( it's hard to me because I like too much the stroke effect...)

Great drawings and love the finished model. You really did take advantage of the way Flash allows you to push the design.

Brilliant! Great expressions on the horse, and nice sketches to boot. That bear in the Hunny Puffs piece is great too, of course the free army man adds a nice incentive. Looking forward to your next post.
