April 9, 2007
Worked all weekend on Salt War images. Here's "Face of The Insurgency." Very nice effects and patina. Note the small scar on his jawline (a happy accident). And also notice the dirty fingernails (he's a farmer). I'm also proud of the '73 Winchester. I have one, and propped that sucker right on my art desk for reference. Notice the rubbing circle created by the saddle ring, just above the trigger guard.

Also did a gaggle of facial studies for other insurgency characters. Runs the gamut.

The insurgents got up on the adobe rooftops of the surrounding houses in San Elizario and laid down a deadly fire at the Texas Ranger compound. Nice subtle effects here. Still need to add the Ranger compound in the mid-distance.
