Western Short...



The other night I had some wierd fit of creativity.. Right as my wife was going to bed i was doodling a little cowboy drawing.. and it got me thinking about ideas... and I ended up roughly storyboarding a little short over the next 30 -45 min.. It was fun.. and I think I'd really like to try and do something with this one.. I know I'm the king of starting things for myself and never finishing them.. I have a couple shorts just lying there at either the rough boards or rough animatic stage... But this one felt different.. it was more serious... Most of my ideas are humor driven.. anyway.. here's a sketchbook page with my initial doodles for one of the characters...

hehe and the other image.. well.. I was showing Troy my rough boards.. and explaining them.. and he said... "You know what's missing... PIRATES! Pirates are hot now!".. and we started spewing out ides for a pirate / cowboy movie.. there were some pretty funny ideas... So I did a stickie doodle of the logo for the pirate cowboy short that might never be.. hehe.. If you check the sketchbook page out.. you can see where i drew the intial logo concept as we were talking.. it's a skull with a horseshoe behind it.. on a belt buckle. I changed it to guns and blades.hehe it's wonky as hell.. but whatever.. it's just a doodle.... hehe.. ahhhh... Troy... we have to make the Pirate/Cowboy movie!!

Anyway... Have a good weekend all!!.

Too bad you didn't do it on the Calgary Stampede week in July! lol

Awesome, awesome drawings. A cowboy meets caribbean pirates routine would be truly awesome indeed! Lessee, an Indian holy man curses a couple of cowboys by casting a spell and sending them back to the Caribbean in the 1600's. Billy the Kid meets Blackbeard the Pirate!

Oh, and if you need any inspiration for a cvaribbean background, don't forget my pics on the blog for terrain, coastlines, etc.

I gotta put up my rocky mountain/stampede pictures pretty soon. I took a few of Gino Vanelli
at a concert he performed at the Stampede.

hahahhah, yes the world needs a cowboy pirate film. The world needed alines vs predator really bad, the film industry gave it to us, now you have to give us cowboys vs pirates.

The world also needed a Freddy vs. Jason film pretty badly (though it might've been better had they made that in the 80's).

A posse of cowboys lead be a Clint Eastwood lookalike vs. a crew of pirates...hmmm....Blackbeard? Captain Hook? You might not wanna use Captain Jack Sparrow at the risk of being sued by Disney...
