Thirty-Thirty by steven-donegani Thirty-Thirty by steven-donegani
This was a challenge and a half.

Making this Bravestarr character look bad-ass was a bit of an ordeal, but I learned a lot and tried some new lighting techniques along the way.

Also, what the hell? Every picture of this character from the cartoon has his crotch area the same colour as his body and head...so I gave him tights. the 80's man...

I felt like a lot of my recent works have been dark and gloomy so I wanted to make something bright and colourful this time!

I love the fact that 30-30's gun, "Sara-Jane" resembled the obvious of a male equine anatomy!

You and I thought the same thing about the "tights"; my version of him has a red speedo! This is an instant fav for me!

take a bow, mate, this is a fantastic rendition of 30/30!

The textures on the steel on his shoulder alone are incredible and every individual hair in his tail and mane are so life-like, really great work!

The textures on the armor were made using different brushes and layering them. I did use some on the rocks in the background, I got a tad lazy, haha!

I can't remember the name of this character off the top of my head, but I think his trusty wide-barreled weapon was dubbed "Sarah-Jane".

His name is Thirty-Thirty (30/30?). I think this show was before my time because I didn't recognize it.
