Gunfighter at the Just OK Corral

Here’s the design for our main character.  Great work by Erika on creating these images.

We went for a Clint Eastwood-ish look, with open clean lines and colors.  Clint Eastwood was a no-brainer… after having watched the Man With No Name trilogy over a hundred times, I can’t think of any other looks for a main character in a western.

Oh, for those in the discussions, our man is not a smoker.  I know every western gunfighter worth his salt and riding to a Morricone theme would roll his own smokes.  But we’re sort of anti-smoking (except for the celebratory cigar, of course).

Anyway, here’s our man, in the opening scenes, when he’s challenged by a new gunfighter.

And here he is moving into his fighting stance, getting his overcoat out of the way.  Cool, eh?
