Wyatt Earp Stands—Lone Ranger Sinking?
May 4, 2012
Before I came into work, I whipped out another study of a subject matter I can't let go of. I call this "Last Light On Morningstar #87".
Also working on a set piece: Wyatt Earp Stands In Dust.
And here's a second stab at it:
Like the dust. Face is still not quite right. I'll get it. Did these this morning as well. Got up at five and bailed in. I could do worse than to emulate this sketch:
Remember Disney's Lone Ranger project, which was so famously reduced in budget from $250 million down to $200 million? Well, the rumor is rampant that the shoot has not been smooth and the budget has ballooned up to $300 million and counting. I still hope they can pull this off, but after the debacle of John Carter this is troubling to hear.
