Precious little progress

Precious Stones
This week I have been tired... really... really... tired. So no painting until now. Last time I attempted this precocious scarecrow I had the flu... so it seemed about time to try again. Cargo pilot Larimar Feldspar Stones - but everyone just calls him Precious. I saw Robocop for the first time not long after I came up with this fella, so his face just gravitated towards Peter Weller... but with Tom Petty kinda hair. It made sense at the time ;-)

Fancying the bass player

Lawrence
Back to my Western for face number 6 - Lawrence Ramiro Sánchez. Brilliant with numbers, excellent sharpshooter and a mean double bass player. Based on Benicio del Toro.

Glow

Elliott
I'm going to try to keep everything more sketchy from now on, and then revisit later if I fancy, otherwise I'll just get way to far behind. Face number 5 - Elliott.

Mom's the word

Mom
Number 3 for the 29 faces. Spent too long faffing around with the colour of the suit. Anyhoo. Continuing with the cowboy theme, here's another fella from my Western.
Maxwell Oliver Macrae, aka Maxo - or 'mom' to his friends - a tailor with a super sunny disposition and excellent dance moves. How could I not base him on Don O'Conner :-)

What's my name?

Francis Urlaub, DDS
One of my best friends asked if he could have a cameo in the Western I'm writing... how could I resist ? :-)
Number 2 for the 29 faces... Doctor Francis Urlaub.
A gambler and dentist with specialty in orthodontics, Doctor Urlaub can usually be found on the large gambling river boats. Though modest with his bets he has been known to throw in his supply of silver and gold tooth fillings as collateral when his cash flow is low. A man of small physical stature but extremely large on charm, he is extremely well-spoken and renowned for his superbly groomed and luxuriant beard.

If you'll be my bodyguard...

Al
The 29 faces are back... wohooo! I'm so excited :-) Let's see how many months it's going to take me this time ;-)
Here's the first face... my cowboy, Al. Based on Anthony Zerbe whom I love and adore :-) I know it's officially the 2nd now... but I started this at 10 pm... so I count it as September 1st :-)
