although this is your first pic I've picked up on, this is the last (so far) I'm to comment -- the originality and wittiness of your style doesn't fail to surprise. I love the palette, the way you used different styles for the tank, the background and the little guy, and how the tank sticks out the background. it's friggin 10 outta 5.=)

The tank looks like a Baneblade for the wild west era.
Oh. A baneblade is from Warhammer 40k.

I love the way the tank's got revolvers.
Cowboy seems to lean a bit much though.
Still, ossum.

5/5 For hilarity. Nice shading and saturation work. I especially like the use of dithering on the back wheel. *thumbs up*

A cowboy tank...that is awesome.

P.S.: My wrong English was intentional, of course

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 8/21/2007 17:51
To your next birthday you will become a dictionary from me Now, seriously... I think it's called a draw (or maybe a tie), but "undecided" is more like when a person can't makeup his/her mind... Any native speakers? Correct me if I'm wrong. Oh yeah, before I forget -- the piece itself is great as always, of course

soda (Level 10 President) @ 8/19/2007 11:26
Haha, very original, the colors and feel to this are great. 

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/19/2007 11:25

yep, it's not just you =D.. thought about that but w/ someone looking out of the turret this wouldn't fit into the size limit (100px high)

@ilkke: challenge is 'old fashioned western scene' - you amiga guys should really get this oldskool thing outta your heads =D

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/19/2007 11:10
Very nice!
The challenge says: 'oldschool western duel scene' or something, but maybe this tank IS oldschool :D

CircleOfTheDarkOnes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/19/2007 10:10
The tank has a hat and shotguns.  That's awesome.

Pnaky (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/19/2007 09:55
Awesome, you have my vote...

Twizzler (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/19/2007 09:31
lol i like the cowboy hate part of the tank.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/19/2007 08:34
I'm glad you joined this challenge, or we wouldn't of been able to see this wonderful piece of art.
It would of been nice to have seen the driver on top or next to the tank, as it feels like he's fighting a machine rather than another cowboy (or maybe it's just me..)

Nice indeed!!

Kfuchoin (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 8/19/2007 07:46
