Hardcore Tex by Dedefox Hardcore Tex by Dedefox
His name is Tex, an acronym from Texas Miles Rhodes, an awesome character created by :iconwhiteknight222:
Tex is not just an ordinary western gunfighter because hes actually invisible, and his actual form was smoke. So basically I just draw his costume, not his physique, and what you see evaporating from his coat and shirt was his true form.

But the hardest part to draw was his hands holding dual guns. Mechanical drawing wasnt my expertise, and drawing revolver instead of my usual pistols was a challenge. Beside, a unique character as Tex also needs the best weapons available. So I opened my Gunslinger comic collection and used this exceptional Colt as reference for his guns. Its fun though, and I was satisfied with the outcome.



Texas Miles Rhodes is created by whiteknight222. Art by Dedefox 2010.

Hahaha, I draw him from whiteknight reference, so I guess he knew better. But since you mention it, my Dad is more familiar with Texas people because he live there for 2 years :D

lol... I'm so sorry... my english is very strange... ^^
"stress the shade" is "increase the shade"... Do you know what I mean ?

Hahaha, it's okay, it' just that I'm not fluent in english so I didn't understand that. In digital painting language, is "increase the shade' means increase the contrast?

I like very much the movement of the character, as well as the shade, even if to stress this shade would maybe have looked some more of depth.
So, congratulations... ^^

Thanks for the nice comments, but I didn't understand your meaning of 'stress the shade' :P Could you kindly explained this to me, so I can further enhance my next artwork?

Great. But the revolvers are not Colts I guess. They seem to be the Remington Outlaw revolvers. Frank James used those also.

Thanks! Yeah, I really love my Gunslinger collection too, and the last wild west movie I saw was incredible. Have you watch 3.10 to Yuma?

Inagraph Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010
yes I did, great movie. If you want something oddly different(well maybe you'll consider it heresy rofl), give it a shot at Sukiyaki Western Django, made by Quentin Tarantino. Mixing the Eastern with the Western, hilarious movie, and for me it was worth it. Taking the Spaghetti Western back to the road lol.

I like both classic Japan and Western movie, and it'll great to see a mix of them, but I hope it will not ended like Kill Bill :P I do enjoyed the first movie, but the second was too flat.

Nicely constructed picture. Great use of contrast and I like the composition - with the character positioned 1/3 way into the frame and a strong horizontal line.
If you do another piece using this character - maybe you could include a 'wild west' environment in the background to give him some context?

Thanks for the comment, man. I'll be interested to draw another piece of this character, but it all depends on the owner, :iconwhiteknight222:
