Doc Holliday's Last Gunfight #5 and #6

March 20, 2013
  Hit the wall yesterday. Had great photo reference, thanks to Chad Hays, who modeled the pose I wanted.

But I totally tubed it:

Sometimes having too good of reference stymies the muse. Woke up this morning at 5:45 and bailed into another version:

Daily Whipout #498, "Doc Holliday's Last Gunfight #6"

Tried to give him a little bit of a shopworn look. Sickly and a bit unsteady. A little older than his salad days in Tombstone.

"You know what it's like having five kids? Imagine you're drowning and someone hands you a baby."
