This started as just a sketch that I did some time ago, but never got around to finishing. And recently, I had some time on my hands and got the inspiration to spruce it up.

I don't think it started out as a caricature/cartoon of Sam Elliott, but it definitely became that as I went on. Which is fine with me. He's got such an iconic old cowboy look.

If you've never watched the movie Tombstone, you should do so. You'll be doing yourself a favor!

I love that you leave the sketch lines in your finished illustrations. Great look! Go Team SAM!

Thanks Jennifer! Confession: I always get his name mixed up with Sam Rockwell and Sam Worthington. Both of those names sound like they could be attached to his look.
